Mint19 won't connect to router

Post by Haskell+74 »

Mint19 32bit won't connect to router Archer A7
Mint20 64bit will connect. I tried 3 32bit Linux distributions and none would connect and Ubuntu 20 would connect. Does anyone no why?

Without knowing anything about the hardware involved it's impossible to help. Please post an inxi -Fxxxz report from the 32bit machine. 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.
