Wireless Network Quirky

#1

Post by JBoman » Sun May 20, 2018 1:55 pm

Simply speaking the wireless network is quirky; at bootup sometimes it starts automatically and sometimes it doesn't start without manual intervention. I searched the Wiki and the MX-17 Manual for solutions but to date have found none. I figure it's a simple setting in something I overlooked and any tips are most appreciated. Thank You :crossfingers:

NOTE: when starting manually the connection is found under "hidden network" and the host connection is not encrypted or secured.

Perhaps the wi-fi signal is too weak in that location?

Occasionally the failure to connect automatically has happened to me with a wired connection, but a reboot has always cured it.

I went with Wicd instead on MX. Being a AntiX user. But after that. I read a thread about editing a Network Manager file. I just can't remember the thread/post by Dolphin Oracle about it.

So here is the best I can do for ya. At the present moment.

You pegged it; had not checked in session and startup and sessions were not being saved at logout. Thanks :popcorn:
