TL-WN722n v1.0 connectivity problems i386

Post by Thelyon » Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:18 pm

Hello All,
I'm having trouble with the wifi on said adapter. It connects fine but after a while I will loss connectivity but it will still say I am connected. Also the number of available networks that network manager displays will be less. I'm assuming that it gets stuck in a certain channel and only shows those networks. Is there any way to fix this? I have the same adapter but v3.0 which does not work on my i386 system. The computer is old and I was hoping to use it as a network bridge. I don't really want to have to buy PC to do it or dig a trench to lay pipe and bring Cat6 into the shop.

change the router channel from AUTO to 6 or 1 or 11 use linssid to check what wifi channels are already occupied and use a channel that has less users.
