• Broadcom WiFi weak signal


    Hi everyone,
    I have a Broadcom 43142 with wl driver. The signal becomes weak if I go far from the router (for far I mean in an other room). The power percentage of signal says about 50% but I can’t do anything.

    I tried to use other device in the same spot and all is normal (also with the same laptop with windows).

    Thanks

  • Try running this command and see if it improves the issue:

    iwconfig wlan0 power off
    
  • Are you running the wl-dkms? or just the standard wl?

    Now It’s better but the connection comes and goes

    I’m using the wl-dkms as with the kernel 4 I had some problem
