Welp, after going to Ubuntu Help in the settings tab I was instructed to check my router setup. So I did. I enabled then disabled DNS Override and disabled then enabled the UPnp. Then restated my laptop. Ran Ubuntu and WHALA!!! WiFi is connected without having to run Windows for 1/2hour first. I'll repost if the signal is lost again.

I had a problem that was somewhat similar. I recently installed fiddler and my browsers worked fine before installing it. My OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and the browsers Im using are Google chrome and Mozilla firefox. After restarting, I realized that neither browser works or connects to the internet. They were all displaying the proxy server is refusing ...

You can install a driver for Ubuntu 16.04 this way sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt update sudo apt install rtl8192eu-dkms You need to be connected by wire for that. This is my PPA. I added the ID for this adapter to official Realtek drivers. They always forget to do it. If UEFI is used in your computer, you need to disable ...

This adapter is not supported by any existing Linux drivers so far.

As a workaround, if the network is not actually hidden, you can force a scan by running sudo iwlist wlan0 scan where wlan0 is the name of your wireless interface.

I had a similar problem. I removed the old connection and set up a new one manually which worked for me. To remove the old connection, I removed the file named "eduroam" in the directory "/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections". You may set up Eduroam manually as follows: type "sudo nm-connection-editor" in terminal. Punch you password, if asked for. This ...

HP has knowingly put faulty Realtek RTL8188EE WiFi adapters into their products since June 2014. This is a known issue that HP refuses to address. I spent 2 months trying to figure out the problem. I spent 5 hours on the phone with Microsoft and they couldn't fix the issue...even after remotely taking over my computer. I spent $50 on a NetGear external ...

If your laptop is already connected to Internet then go to System Settings -> Network and then in the Wireless section, click on "Use as hotspot". After the security notification, it will show you the network name and the wep key needed to connect to this network (those informations can be customized). For more details, you can also check here.

I figure you have Ubuntu 16.04 and installed firmware using one of the github sites. Recently a new version of package linux-firmware was uploaded to the repositories. When installed, it replaced the firmware you had. If you wish to check, look at dpkg -l | grep linux-firmware The newer version is 157.1 and the quick solution is to wget http://mirrors....

you can also go into the "Network" menu on the System Settings page and see the networks that are available. The applet seems to be the issue.

Okay, I fixed it. After hours of tweaking and brute forcing, I finally found a configuration of firmware files and board files from various git repositories.

Thanks to Pilot6, he gave a good advice. So, I fixed it. Disabled the secure boot. Then run the command sudo dkms remove -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux/1.0 --all And then sudo dkms install -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux -v 1.0 After reboot, my wi-fi works again. And now I know how to deal with it after future kernel updates. Thanks

Practically, using a hidden SSID is not helpful anymore. It was really helpful back in the days of Windows XP or earlier when hidden networks were not showing anywhere unless one used specific third party software for revealing them. Now, as you can see, it's just one more click and they're there. It's better to unhide your network SSID, maximize your ...

This is caused by a bug in Network Manager. It seems that when wlan0 is renamed using the new naming scheme it confuses Network Manager and Network Manager thinks you have another ethernet connection. It can normally be fixed with systemctl restart NetworkManager.service The command will have to be done after a reboot or suspend until the fixes are ...

The 3 steps in answer #2 worked for me on my Dell Inspiron 6400 (similar to the 1520) for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but initially after installing Ubuntu, neither the wired or wireless interfaces would work - so I couldn't update using the commands provided. The solution was to remove the incorrect driver causing the network conflict which I found here: Ubuntu 12.04 ...

The short answer is: find out what chip is used in your adapter. find the source code for a driver and compile it. use modprobe to install the module into the kernel. use dkms to allow the source code to be built when the kernel updates. To that end: open terminal and type lsusb look for an entry that shows your D-Link, like such: Bus 002 Device 010: ...

Windows offers automatic switching between Access Points and channels to find the best connection. Ubuntu comes with GNOME Network Manager that does not offer this fuctionality.
