wireless mouse and wifi?

Post by elmarts » Mon Sep 19, 2016 8:29 am

I had an interesting apparent conflict - WPA2 network with a broadcast SSID refusing to complete connection if I had a wireless mouse connected to my t61 laptop. I unplugged the mouse, rebooted, and it connected fine. Anyone else have this interaction? Any clue why the 2 wifi's conflict? Mint 18 btw.

Strange.... what band is your Wifi on? 5 Ghz or 2.4 Ghz?

t61 can't do 5 MHz :) only 2.4 MHz.
