Wireless Connects But No Internet Connection After 19 Upgrade

Post by LTheobald » Fri Oct 19, 2018 3:47 am

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Mint 19 & now I have no internet connection when on a WIFI connection. Via ethernet is fine. I've tried both on our companies enterprise WIFI & a personal hotspot from my phone, so I'm assuming it's a problem with all WIFI connections. As a side note, whenever I go into Network & chose a wireless network with a secret key, it never asks me for the key. I've tried manually recreate the wireless setup to see if that helped but it didn't.

Thanks for any help.
Lee,

See if it improves after

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
systemctl restart network-manager.service
It must be the work connection that makes your wifi TX drop to 8 dBm and that might be an issue with the wifi at work
