WiFi drivers being messed up by recent updates

Unread post by rester159 »

Hi all,

I hear the recent Linux updates are kind of messing with the Wifi drivers. There's a fix but it hasn't been pushed yet. Any idea for when the update will become available?

Thx!

Good to know, I was thinking that my wifi adapter was junk.

Yes the update also broke my previous working WiFi. Didn't bother yet to try a fresh install.

I tried a fresh Mister install and still experiencing the same issues.

Maybe my Dongle is fried? Any advice on what dongle to buy?
