It all works fine initially, but after running the first ... all other suggestions on the web appear to need internet, but the compute stick doesn't have an ethernet port to bypass the wifi. Any suggestions?

Posted by TheLinuxGooroo Just generally curious about what other Solus users use in order to protect their machines. I’m currently using UFW with GUFW installed as well. Is this enough protection or should I use an AV as well? If so, what AV?

Posted by chaotikcrow I’m new to Solus and there’s some commands that are a bit different from other distros so I’m still getting used to it. Some people on forums said to type locate ? (filename) but also did nothing, there’s probably something I am doing wrong? Thank you.

Posted by Techster Hey guys, I’m fairly new to Linux and I have tried 2 other distros apart from this one. Every single one has given me Wi-Fi issues, and the connection’s strength reaches only 50% when I am right next to the router. I have tried other solutions online, but I have yet to find a solution. Can anyone help make the Wi-Fi strong enough to be usable? Thank you.
