I don't really know how to get into much more detail than the title has provided. I'm on a new HP Pavilion 15 and running Linux Mint 16 x64, but the wifi keeps dropping almost immedi ately (<1 min) after connecting and then doesn't allow me to reconnect. I'm dual booting windows 7 and it has no issues whatsoever with the wifi. Please request any additional information and I will provide it as soon as possible.
