I tried to connect to the house's wifi (the signal is good) but it's just loading and not connecting - and when it's connection so it doesn't really work (sometimes it works for a few seconds and that's it, but almost never)

when I'm connecting to my phone's hotspot, then everything works just good.

Any idea what can be the problem ? I tried with two usb wifi adapters and its pretty much the same

and here like you can see both of the networks has a good signal image description

Thanks in advance

If you have the same behavior with usb Wifi cards, to me you have some issue with your wifi configuration at home or the signal is not strong enought

maybe the signal is good for the phone, but not good enough for the computer - does it make sense ? (because the computer can't even connect to the wifi) And maybe there is a problem with the configuration between the router and the linux ? because there is another computer pretty close to mine, with windows, and the wifi there works good Do you think that it can be something in linux - missing driver or something ? Because i really don't think that it's that

There are some wifi chip sets that have some issues, you need to know the chip of your wifi card, to do so user lspci | grep net same with lsusb to find out your usb wifi devices, but it will be very unlucky that you have same chip sets.

I didn't even think about that, but like you said, it's probably not the same one.. so do you think that maybe its just a problem with the adapter ? like maybe it doesn't work good if the signal isn't the best ?

could be, but we need to be sure, unless we need to get the chipset.
