(solved) wifi is connecting but range is the problem :(

Post by raj2k7 » Sat Sep 07, 2019 9:26 am

i just install linux mint 19.2 and i am a new linux user. wifi is connecting and working well, however range is the problem. i can connect my android phone without any problem but linux mint is not connected at the same distance. i switch to linux from windows. back then I didn't face any problem to connect with wifi.
