Wifi is occasionally very slow (new thread)

Post by dersuuzala »

I am having the very same problem.
Trying desperately to find a solution. I tried this one so far.https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... tly#315400
It changed nothing, My internet speed is still below 1Mpbs.
Current connection speed is 410 Kbps!

Code: Select all

~$ iwconfig
enp2s0    no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

wlp3s0    IEEE 802.11  ESSID:"omd"  
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.447 GHz  Access Point: 5C:63:BF:04:D1:D3   
          Bit Rate=72.2 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr=2347 B   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=68/70  Signal level=-42 dBm  
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:24   Missed beacon:0
Is there anyone who can help me to solve this?

Please post an inxi -Fxxxz report. This will give us a concise overview of your hardware and on how Mint sees it.

Here is how to generate the report and post it:

Boot from your installation media (USB/DVD)
Open a terminal window (Ctrl-Alt-t). Make it fullscreen to avoid unneeded linebreaks or chopped lines. Execute the command

Code: Select all

 inxi -Fxxxz 
exactly as it has been typed here.

Mark the complete text output which the command will display with your mouse.
Press the keyboard shortcut <Shift><Ctrl>C to copy the marked text into the clipboard.
Enclose the results between the code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply then paste <Ctrl>V them in your reply between the code markers.

The results will help us to help you.

I would suggest reading through this thread (SOLVED)Wifi fi signal 35% and 90% on 2 Mint 20 machines. The computer with the 90% signal in that thread has the same driver as your computer. The discussion in the thread explains the variables on signal strength. You will have better throughput when the signal is better and it is possible the location of your laptop in relation to your router is affecting what you see for throughput. It is also possible there are less people online right now in your area and thus you get better throughput.
