WiFi issue on Mint 19.2 [SOLVED]

Post by ajayX1 »

Hello I have a 4G connection and connecting through Wifi Router. I am using Mint 19.2. I am facing a strange problem the internet speed fluctuate and sometimes the wifi signal dropped to 0% where as router installed just a 10 centimetres away from my laptop. I have to press "rescan for wireless networks" to increase speed. But just after a few minute the speed again reduce. Sometimes I get speed upto 1 Mbps but most of the time it is between 2-3KBps to 60kBps. After pressing "rescan for wireless networks" it jumps to approx 100-150 kBps but them again drops back. Please suggest what can I do.

Looks like problem is over after i) closed IPV6 ii) I cleaned connections and iii) run system upgrade. The speed was drastically reduced to almost zero.

Hello ajayX1,

I don't quite understand your statement: Is the problem solved or has it got worse?

Sorry for clumsy reply.

The speed was drastically reduced to almost zero. Now problem is solved after i) closed IPV6 ii) I cleaned connections and iii) run system upgrade.
