I have just had Infinity installed and 3 wireless connections on various lap tops have worked fine.
However, I had difficulty getting the Acer to connect initially and although it worked first thing this morning it now keeps dropping the connection.
I suspect it is because it is runninng Linux Lite and not a Windows system.
Can anyone confirm Linux Lite as the problem? (It is the machine my wife uses so very important to keep it working!)
It may be a problem with the mixed mode encryption used by the home hub.
Look at the wireless help on my pages below,
One possible reason is that you are using channels 12 or 13 and that the laptop does not like them. I understand the US does not allow these channels so some hardware does not support them fully.
In any case, it may be worth checking channels and interference, eg using inSSIDer. Not sure what the Linux equivalent is, there must be one, or test it out on another machine with Windows. Also try setting the home hub to a fixed channel rather than auto: maybe the Acer doesn't like channel hopping?
Finally, under advanced wireless settings, try using a lower wireless interface type to see if it helps. That may make the connections to other machines slower, however.
just an fyi, there is inssider for linux, but it looks as if development has grount to a halt,find it here https://github.com/metageek-llc/inSSIDer-2-Cross-Platform/downloads what i do,to see if a channel is crowded, is, open a terminal/console, su to root & issue the command, " iwlist scan" ( without quotes ) or "iwlist wlan0 scan" ( that's a zero not letter ) & just scroll through. then select channel as appropriate
