Posted by laurynas Hello, I’m having issues with WiFi under load. If I download from steam without limiting the speed or watch a Youtube video my wifi just stops working and I have to reconnect to my WiFi even though it shows up as connected. Using my phone’s tethering to access the internet works completely fine, but I don’t want to have phone attached to my laptop all the time. Any suggestions?

Posted by HC_Sam Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a tutorial for doing a clean dual boot install of Windows and Solus? Brand new install for both, working from a blank drive, wanting to boot into UEFI mode. I run a Dell XPS 15 9550, and I want to partition and dual boot off a NVME drive, if it’s relevant. Thanks!
