I recently installed elementary on my laptop, but the wifi is recognized with a low signal percentage although it is on the side of the modem and when I am a bit far away it does not even recognize it. The only solution is to use ethernet. any solution? my computer is this. I believe I am not the first to have this problem, but I can't seem to find similar question in Elementary forums.
