wi-fi fixed address

Post by skooter1121 » Tue Jul 23, 2019 2:57 pm

I keep getting bumped off late at night, and need to reboot the pc and modem. Wonder if I can set a fixed ip address for my desktop pc. Can't seem to find the settings for it in networking.

THANX
Steve

Maybe the problem lies elsewhere. Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Do the same with the following four commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all

Code: Select all

iwconfig

Code: Select all

lsusb

Code: Select all

I realize that I'm using a 32bit version. But, everything else is working great and I do not want to install everything all over again.

There does appear to be a better driver for your WiFi chipset. I have a how-to for you that has been written for 64-bit Mint 19.x:
https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.c ... k.html#ID7
(item 7)

So I'm not entirely sure whether this'll work in Mint 18.x, 32-bit no less. It probably will, though. Use Timeshift to create a system snapshot to roll back to, if things don't work out well.

Thanx. I'll try the 32bit and see what happens.
