I'm running Mint 18.3

Anyone got some tips? Thanks in advance :)

Try

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
Then reboot and see if wifi power management causes this problem

Nope, it did not do anything.
Strange thing tho; if I turn off the computer with the "power button 5 sec" -way, wifi works when I turn it back on. But not if I turn it off or restart it normally through the menu :S

NOTE: WIFI also works if I turn off computer normally, its only when I do menu->quit->restart it doesn't work :? Maybe the power management did something?

Can you change the settings on the wifi router to wireless B/G rather than B/G/N? Then see if it works

I changed the router to only B/G, but it didn't do anything.

The strange thing is;
Menu->quit->restart = wifi not working at all
Menu->quit->shut down = wifi working just fine

Hi, Vildua
I searched for the Ralink wireless driver in the following link: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers which told me it is not supported at all.
Please, consider the advice to buy a dongle and you could save a lot of time. The further improvements on the Linux kernel could solve this problemas, meanwhile we may have to be patient.
Regards,

If you can't see your wireless router and you don't have an Ethernet port, you cannot update the kernel drivers. Why does my wireless card work with Ubuntu derivatives, but not Mint, when Mint is based on Ubuntu? At least it used to be based on Ubuntu, maybe things have changed. Not that it matters but I was a one time financial contributor to the Mint effort. I've always enjoyed my Mint experience. Presently posting from the computer in question with Kubuntu 18.10. Manjaro also worked, but I found it has security issues. Actually the issue is that Manjaro is annoyingly too secure which creates user friendliness issues. This has always been one of the big bugaboos with the Linux Desktop. It killed a lot of Distributions. By the way, this is a fairly expensive Dell 2n1 purchased at Costco. It has an Intel i7 processor with 8 cores. It's not some off brand piece of junk.

Hi! My lenovo Thinkpad A475 has also got Realtek 8822 BE wireless pci drive

"lspci" clear shows it does not recognize it as a valid wireless driver, just some b822 chipset.

And adding that "rtl8822befw.bin" file to /lib/firmware/rtlwifi did not work

Any solutions?

BTW: this guy seems have come up with some solution to it, but in newer kernel of Linux 4.20 , meanwhile latest Mint only got 4.15

Kernel 4.20 is still in the rc stage. This means that even if you were using a true rolling release like Arch or Gentoo, you wouldn't be able to install a stable version. Pre stable kernels are unreliable and only for expert users (like most Gentoo users, they have to be) who know how to deal with the likely breakages.

WHoever said above that you'd probably be better off buying a cheap USB dongle that does work properly in Linux, I agree with him or her. SOmetimes that's really the best way.

I switched to Deepin, and it works!

Don't know how those guys dealt with the Realtek driver when ubuntu has not given one.
