    Hey everyone. I’ve been using antiX for a while with an ethernet cable but I noticed whenever I switched to my WiFi, the signal would be incredibly weak. I couldn’t even use it in the next room as the router. But switch to Windows and it would work fine. After a bit of research I discovered that this is not an antiX specific problem but occurs in linux systems when running the Realtek RTL8723BE adapter. I found out a tutorial to fix it and thought I would share it to anyone facing the same issue.

    It says ubuntu but it works on antiX too! There ya go.

    I have not tried your suggestion , for the following reason:
    I decided first to give the bullseye-runit-a2 iso a go and
    surprise, surprise, wifi was satisfactory.
    So, I will leave it at that.
    However, still thanks for the link. Some knowledge is always a plus.
