connection auto auth problem
For some time I have run Mint or Ubuntu alongside Windows and a seperate partition. About 3 weeks ago after a Mint update, me connection through my home hub would not connect, however it was fine under windows. I tried re-installing Mint, trying an older version of Mint, installing ubuntu under another partition and apptepting to connect simply via the installation disk to no avail. No only that, but my mouse no longer works under any version of Mint distro (it does however work under Ubuntu) . I tempted to go for a complete format of the hard drive and start afresh, but suspect I may get the same problem.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem. It clearly isnt a hardware problem because windows works fine. Reinstalling over an old linux distro or alongside doesn't solve the problem.
Do you think it might be worth trying a non debian distro to test if and see if I get the same problem?
I searched many forums and can't seem to find an answer.
