  • Linux Lite: 5.0 64bit
Just installed linuxlite 5.0 and connected to my WiFi.

The internet works for 1 - 2 minutes then stops working. It doesn't disconnect though. If I disable then enable the network it works again for another 1- 2 minutes before going off again.

Any ideas?

Thanks

This is a common issue with Linux Lite 5.0. I would recommend using an ethernet cable attached to your modem. I am doing that now and there are zero issues. When I am connected via wifi, it is sketchy at best. Good luck!
