Thanks for taking a look.

I have a new HP Pavilion running Fedora 20. Wired internet is full speed, but there are several problems with my Wifi connection.

When running best, the speed is a fraction of wired speed. -The connection frequently cuts out completely. -When loading a webpage, errors are thrown -I would like to run 5G connection, but it does not look like it's available

Below I have listed the wifi driver specs and an error log. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Wifi Driver Specs:

lspci -->

08:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188EE Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

Error Log:

journalctl -lf -->

  • Have you installed appropriate drivers?
  • Have you enabled secure boot?
  • Are you sure this is not a hardware error?
