Keep loosing wifi connection

Post by Breson on Sun Apr 30, 2017 2:31 am

HI everyone.

Ive taken my husbands old laptop, which had windows 10 on it and were pretty slow. Even after an reinstallation.

I figured, perhaps it was time for a Linux based OS and found ChaletOS. I tried to boot it from USB and looked around in the system and liked what I was. Nothing wrong there... Now I have formated the computer and installed ChaletOS completly... But now I experience that the WIFI drops out from time to time... How do I troubleshoot it? I am completly lost in this system Razz

Hope someone can help, thanks! (writting from a wired connection now, but not the general idea with a laptop Smile )

Thanks in advance.

The only good thing about Windows is that it never gives you any terminal illnesses.
Needless to say, Terminal illnesses are the only problem with Linux.

try this:

Code:
sudo bash
cd /etc/modprobe.d
leafpad blacklist.conf

add the following line to the BOTTOM of the file:

Code:
blacklist acer-wmi

SAVE your changes, exit, and restart your computer

ahem, forgot ChaletOS comes with mousepad not leafpad (installed leafpad in my install)

if leafpad blacklist.conf doesnt work use mousepad. hopefully you figured my messup on your own Wink
