wifi key works on ubuntu LXLE but not on LMDE cindy

Post by akimcolor » Thu May 30, 2019 11:53 am

sorry for my english

i just installed linux mint cindy debian and my wifi key is not working well.
The key detects wifi networks but after a few seconds it cuts. I can not connect. I can start on two systems, windows and linux.
On windows no problem the key works well, but not on LMDE Cindy. I tried 3 keys:

tp-link tl-wn722n
tp-link wn822n
thomson tg123g

none work.
I install some drivers from https://packages.debian.org.


during installation the install program informs me that the drivers are already installed.

when I boot with a usb live key with ubuntu lxle (last version) the key is perfectly recognized and it works

my question is: is that someone can suggest me a usb wifi key model that works on LMDE cindy, and not to exensive (I mean who tested it himself and that it works well).

Thanks for your help.

( on lmde cindy, i can not find the driver manager.
I tried in the menu configuration, but it does not work. driver-manager on lmde cindy debian is missing.)

after a trivial search for WIFI KEY LMDE via SEARCH in the upper right corner of this page, I can find several posts to solve this problem... something like:
