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.
