Code: Select all

modinfo -p rtl8723be
says now, if it lists ant_sel, try my commands for sudo modprobe -r rtl8723be, sudo modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=2 along with the iwlist scan
no ant_sel it just says this?

Can you use the Linux Mint Update Manager to install a newer 4.2.0 kernel and run the commands from http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 0#p1122593 again

I am seeing file locations for some of the rtl wifi modules that aren't correct and they aren't ones from the dkms install. Have you tried to install from pvaret's github?
