I am using Ubuntu Bionic.

Somehow Ubuntu can't detect or display low bar signals to a Wi-Fi that shows 2 bar on my Android, I even tried a Windows machine and it displayed 3 up to 4 bar signals.

Is there a way to solve this? Why Ubuntu 18.04 (or the one I have at least) can't detect close ranged Wi-Fi?

I have run the network diagnostics; here is the output

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0032] (rev 01)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter [103c:1785]
    Kernel driver in use: ath9k
  • did you try nmcli device wifi list – cmak.fr Jun 2 '18 at 17:39
  • The results are almost same to what I see on the wifi tab! – U. User Jun 2 '18 at 18:47
  • Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Could you please run the network diagnostics and edit your question to include a link to the result? I know it may seem a bit overwhelming for a novice but your info so far is a bit vague and the diagnostics will likely cover all options that may cause your issue. Thanks. – David Foerster Jun 3 '18 at 20:57
  • Thank you! I understand. Here are the information you've asked : paste.ubuntu.com/p/r8Ys4xHx5t – U. User Jun 4 '18 at 0:10
