My first post on the forums, so please bear with me as I try and troubleshoot some stuff. I am new to linux.
I have an HP Stream 11 Pro with a BCM 43142 Broadcom wireless card w/ bluetooth that is becoming a headache. It wasn't the greatest with Windows, but it worked.
I am on Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon.
When I connect to wifi at home, it works pretty well (EDIT: albeit much slower than my desktop, it gets about 30mB/s down as opposed to 90 on the other machine). The problem occurs when connecting to my University's wifi. The connection drops out every 2-3 minutes, almost on the dot. 90% of the time, it can't reconnect on it's own, but disabling and reenabling wifi tends to fix it (temporarily).
Here is my device:
Code: Select all
lspci -nn -d 14e4: 01:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4365] (rev 01)
My connection to the University network has to be manual, as trying to do it automatically causes the login prompt to repeatedly appear, and no connection. My config options:
Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
No CA certificate is required (that's the way my other devices are set up, our IT doesn't require a certificate, or at least they haven't ever mentioned it)
Inner authentication: MSCHAPv2
Password (Normally with Windows, auto configuration works fine so long as the UN and PW are correct)
This configuration is successful in establishing a connection, and does so every time I attempt to connect to the network. For some reason, however, it keeps randomly dropping, as mentioned before.
Anyone have any ideas as to what could be happening?
