    Re: HP envy m6 1225dx 13.04 wifi issues

    When you say not as strong?
    Do you mean it's not working as well - speed? or do you just mean the signal meter looks less or shows a weaker signal?

    As for the wireless the meter and the speed show a difference, it drops internet because my router antenna is bad and only works at 50% signal strength.
    I have a feeling its the RT2800 driver the kernel makes me use in 13.04 but Im not sure

    Alright thank you for the support but Im right next to my router and thats the only way I can connect. Once I leave the room and go downstairs (this is a better router) I lose connectivity

    You could try adding the Compat Wireless module, now called: linux-backports-modules
    To match your kernel
