Wifi Disconnects after 2 minutes

Post by watty1964 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 7:15 pm

Sorry to be a bore but like many others I have having the wifi issue.

It's a fresh install of Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64 bit

Works fine with wired connection.

I've installed Mint on my nephew's PC as he can't afford Windows but I'm a complete novice.

Can anyone help? Wireless info text file attached.

(Also, this post was previously disallowed as it is not an any other topic. I have no idea what that means. The post is in the wireless section of the forum, not 'others'.)

Does it happen with all WiFi networks or just a specific one?

I having same problem with my VPN.
Maybe enabling NetworkManager will help?
Enabling Interface Management
sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
- edit the line "managed=false"
"managed=true"

I would just disable wifi power management and reboot

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf

I have done this and enabled network management and one of them seems to have worked!

Thanks for your help :)
