Hi all,

I am facing slow internet connectivity issues with 18.01 release. Even, not able to do ‘apt-get update’.

Please let me know, is it a known issue?

Thanks,
Pradeep

Yes this is a known issue but some patches have been integrated post 18.01 release.
So I suggest you to try a recent snapshot instead:

Hi @Loic,

I do not see internet connectivity issues in 4.4 kernel i.e.,16.06 release.

Wow… networking has some fairly serious bugs in these releases (although the most serious problems occured when connecting to server processes running on the DB410C).

AFAIR there are no known regressions in 18.01 WiFi drivers… it is merely that even more bugs were found and fixed in the snapshots.
