For the past month and a half or so I've been trying rid myself of my Windows dependency. I have tried Fedora, Ubuntu, and now Linux Mint. Everything works great except for WiFi.
I install the distro and everything works great for about two days, no issues at all.
Then my internet connection starts to fail, every single time. It will connect to the internet, then lose connectivity and not be able to reconnect at all. I'll do a restart, and the internet connection will come back, only to be lost again after fifteen minutes. I've looked into this extensively, and I believe it has something to do with the drivers for my card, it is a RealTek type card.
I've tried doing the solution I've found for similar problems on my own but I've always ended up doing more harm than good. I think the best way to do this would be to use the Windows driver for the card in Linux. Is this possible, and if so, how?
