No file came up. It says:

My mistake, I forgot to add "gedit" in that command  :-[

Command fixed in my last posting .. so please try again.

The internet bar is up, and it says 98%! Web pages are loading normally!

On a side note, before I rebooted the computer, the Terminal had this message:

 Gtk-WARNING **: Calling Inhibit failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by an .service files.

Should I be worried?

No, that's nothing to worry about, and can be safely ignored...

Peppermint doesn't use the gnome session manager .. it's NOT an issue, just a warning that gedit couldn't find it :)

gedit will throw up this error in any distro that doesn't use the gnome session manger .. Which pretty much means any distro that doesn't use the gnome desktop ::)

Don't Panic
(and always carry a towel)

Okey dokey .. after a day or so, can you please let me know if it's still working with a strong signal .. just as a matter of interest.

I expect it will be, but you never know.

Oh, and you're welcome :)

Good news: Wifi is still working great! As to the strength, it's now staying around 80-89% (though technically I am actually sitting right next to the router). It feels very responsive, and there's very little to no delay when pulling up webpages or internet based apps. Well done, sir.

Thanks for taking the time to post the feedback kskarda .. now I know it works, I can commit it to memory for the next time it comes up....

Of course that assumes my memory (which recently resembles a sieve) is capable of holding it that long  :o

Hi PCNetSpec,

I am afraid I must have been a little too enthusiastic. Shortly after I wrote you, the problem began again, though I haven't had time to deal with it yet. The internet does still work, but it cuts out frequently with the "aw, snap" page or the "This webpage is not available" page. No videos or websites involved higher connection can be viewed. The internet cuts in and out, sometimes entirely unavailable for several minutes (though always showing an internet connection) and some completely usable, except for to watch videos and such (previously my husband was able to watch videos without a problem, which tells me there should not be a plugin problem). At the moment, the connection is 60% , but we're not right next to the router, and I would not expect it to be very high. However, even being right next to the router does not seem to help. Any advice?

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep flash
and next time it won't let you browse the web, run:
Code: [Select]
ping -c 5 google.com
and
Code: [Select]
ping -c 5 74.125.230.231
and post tbhe output from both.

As you're going to be doing this when it won't let you browse, it may be best to copy these commands to a file whist it will ;)
(sorry if that seemed a little obvious)

At the moment, the internet is basically working (albeit not excellently), so I've only done the first of the three you gave me.

Here's the output:
ii  pepperflashplugin-nonfree            1.3ubuntu1                             i386         Pepper Flash Player - browser plugin

I'll be waiting for the chance to use the other two.

The internet completely froze on me for a bit (though it still showed the connection), so here what I've got:

You've got a lot of packets falling to the floor.   :o

A spray test might help to pinpoint the prob.

I've used this one for years:  http://www.dslreports.com/pingtest

So for now the ping test won't work, as it keeps saying my IP address in not pingable. How do I make myself pingable?

However, here is the output for the commands you gave:
