Wifi problem related to kernal
« on: October 26, 2020, 03:26:47 pm »
First time to Linux and to Peppermint OS, I installed all the updates through a wired connection but now I have a problem with the wifi: when I try to connect through wifi, internet does not work - then I restart the PC the internet works for about a minute before I lose connection again.

I am at kernel 5.4.0-52-generic. No internet through wifi but when I switch to kernel 5.0.0-37-generic from the grub menu, the wifi is good and I have a stable connection.

How or Can I remove kernel 5.4.0-52-generic from the update manager? Will that break something? And what will happen if I install another kernel like 5.4.0-51-generic?

I am new to Linux so I don`t even know what is the kernel mean or do?
