Fedora Networking :: USB WiFi-N Adapter Disconnects Fc14 64-bit
Nov 27, 2010
After a new fresh-from-DVD install of Fedora 14 64-bit (over top of Fedora 12 64-bit which went over top of Fedora 10 64-bit before that) my Linksys WUSB600N adapter connects at login to my WiFi N router with WPA2 Personal.
That is great, as previously (fc10/12) I had to use the Ralink drivers per ogetbilo's thread on this forum (that thread kept me on the net for many years now). And at some point this even became a pain because sometimes the system would boot and refuse to connect to the wireless (which would hang trying to connect) and then crash to a dump screen on shutdown (bug reported). The fix was hoped to be found in upgrading to F14 and the newer kernels with working native Ralink chip support.
But I still have an issue... the connection stays up for a few minutes then drops. If I disable/re-enable wireless it (at least sometimes) re-connects. But obviously that is not workable. This is a USB adapter and I am not entirely sure that there is not some USB powersave issue going on, but I do not see anywhere to disable system USB power saving either.
Running Ubuntu 10.10, and I can't get my WUSB100 v2 Linksys adapter to work. I've tried what's in this thread: [URL] Entered lsmod |grep rt into Terminal and found out it runs on the rt2800 chipset, so I blacklisted everything necessary. It finds and connects to my network but after about 10 minutes it disconnects and won't reconnect.
im using fedora 10 with gnome on a laptop, i want to increase power to my wifi adapter as im only getting 40% connection strength to the nearest wifi AP (about 20 feet) in windows under power management there is a slider with best performance against battery life, is there a similar setup in fedora 10? ps, if explained fairly well, i dont mind shell scripting (bash) and compiling.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 (32 bits) and a wireless usb adaptor Alfa Network AWUS036H with Chipset Realtek 8187L. After a few minutes connected, the adaptor disconnects and I can't reconnect again. I search this forum but I'm not sure about what to do. Do I need to get and install another driver? I need to use the windows driver?
I have an hp compaq 6720s laptop dualboot vista/ubuntu lucyd.My wireless card is Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02), controlled by wicd 1.7.0 (gnome network manager connects/disconects the net continuously).The problem is, any time I do a scanning with wicd or from command line to see the wifi nets around,my wireless is disconnected, then it connects again because is set to automatic reconnection
I have a Dell Studio 1737 running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.My WiFi was working fine a few days ago until I tried to boot into another mode that allows me to boot into my other Ubuntu 10.04 or Windows Vista.I booted into that Ubuntu, which I thought had been overwritten when I was having problems and installed the one I am currently using.I shut down since it didn't have anything of any use to me at the moment, and I booted back into this current Ubuntu.Now, whenever I shut my laptop screen and open it back up to login, the WiFi is disconnected.(I was also having this problem on the Ubuntu that I booted into earlier, but that WiFi did this from the start on that one.)
my long awaited WUA-1340 D-Link wifi adapter has arrived, and...unfortunately won't work it didn't work "out of the box", so I tried the following (found on the aircrack website)Here's what I did....1. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add blacklist rt73usb as a new line.2. RebootThen,
Code: wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2 tar -xjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
About 20 seconds after I unplug my Laptop from the AC adapter myiFi connection disconnects. The only way to get a connection again is to shut down my laptop and remove the battery and the AC adapter (WiFi-adapter reset) and reboot my laptop. I'm running 10.10 32-bit.lspci shows me these information about my WiFi-Adapter
I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 because I was facing internet problems with previous Ubuntu 9.04 after I upgraded it with downloaded software. And now, 10.10 connects to wireless, but shows web-page some-times and repeatedly disconnects. Earlier it wasn't reaching Internet at all. Some of the topics here helped a lot. But this intermittent internet seems not going anywhere. Wired Internet connects easily though.
I've tried :-
-disabling ipv6..... first in Firefox, then in Kernel also -Setting DNS.....System> Preferences> Network Connections -setting static Ip
I started yesterday off wanting to install this USB wifi adapter on my PC (which is mini-itx so has additional pci slots) [URL] it has the Ralink 3070 chipset. I tried everything I found when googling, nothing came close to working, this was in Fedora12. So I gave up and installed Ununtu 10.04, hoping for better luck there. Ubuntu will recognise the presence of a wifi adapter, here's the output from iwconfig
But it sees no wifi networks and generally won't do anything; I don't think it has the right driver. Rosewill does list a (linux) driver and so does Ralink, but again, neither of these come close to working. has anyone gotten this adapter or chipset to work in ubuntu?
I just installed ubuntu (latest version). Everything worked except when i plug the wifi adapter to the computer nothing happens... It wont show up for wireless network... What do i do? This adapter works great on xp, and its a ralink wifi adapter. I dont know which model version i have though because i bought it new on ebay and it never said model info... I also have a netgear wg111t, how would i get this to work as well?
My laptop has an internal wireless g "adapter" (for lack of a better word) and I plugged in a very cheap and very small ASUS wireless N adapter later on. The ASUS adapter has better bandwidth (again for lack of a better word) but isn't as high quality of a link as the internal adapter is.The laptop appears to be using the internal adapter, but i want it to use the ASUS adapter.
I've just upgraded my old laptop from xubuntu to ubuntu 10.10 and I have some connectivity problems with my usb adapter Netgear WG111v3. On xubuntu I had no problems with connecting on the network but with ubuntu, it says I have good reception but it doesn't connect on the network (rarely it does, but for a very short time). I have another laptop currently running on ubuntu 10.04 and it has no problems at all (however it has an internal usb card).
HPG62-144DX notebook, Windows 7 and considering Ubuntu. I installed 10.10 and tried to get my wifi running but that wouldn't work. I had a connection only sometimes and it broke up after 5 minutes. Once I got a webpage but annoyingly slooow. Got the advice to update drivers and stuff. But the wifi connection is the only one I have...
Went back to 10.4 32-bit. Booted from CD and will keep it that way until this is sorted out. Now I see my wifi hotspots directly and I have no problem to establish a connection. The icon shows 3 bars quality. Network Tools says: Wlan1 = Realtek, Transmitted bytes xxx Received bytes yyy, no errors, link speed = 1Mbps, State = active. Looks good!
The only minor thing here is that enabling/disabling my internal Atheros antanna also enables/disables my Alfa USB Wifi adapter (based on Realtek 8187) but who cares. A bigger problem is: when I start Firefox it doesn't come up with a webpage. It just keeps on saying: "loading". At the bottom of the screen it keeps saying "Looking up" for ages. Nothing further.
i have a broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01) wireless adapter on a dell 1501 run by ubuntu 10.10.this particular model and revision is suppose to be absolutely supported by linux and indeed it did work perfectly before the user ran a upgrade from ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04.subsequently i have reinstalled 10.10. as i recall when i installed ubuntu 10.10 the first time i simply ran the System>Admin>Additional Driver installation tool to make the wireless work. i cannot recall if i ran the b43 or the sta driver but i have tried both this time and had no luck.
i am aware that the broadcom adapters are notoriously troublesome and i have tried the two workarounds here URL... as well as their third alternate workaround with no success.
Okay I've got a Netgear N-150 WNA 1100 USB WiFi adapter, it doesn't work in Ubuntu it's not supported. There should be a way to make it work with ndiswrapper. I tried and failed before and due to other non related circumstances I had to reinstall Ubuntu. What are the steps to install ndiswrapper and it's dependency's on a fresh Ubuntu installation that cannot connect to the internet.
Out of all the Linux I have tried, this is the only one which will hibernate and startup again properly. But it has no drivers for the rtl2860 wifi adapter. I am thinking of using NDIS wrapper, but it may stop hibernation working. I see a guide which I am going to try to follow, but has anyone out there got this adapter working and hibernation still works?
1) it cannot see any networks around 2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router
As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:
Code: Ubuntu 10.04 Linux 2.6.32-22-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 19:31:57 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux TP-Link TL-WN321G wifi usb adapter as seen as Bus 001 Device 006: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501USB Wireless Adapter $ iwconfig wlan0 wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any [Code]....
I have a USB WiFi adapter that my Ubuntu desktop install (10.10) automatically detects, and it works great. I just used the alternate installer to set up an old box as a server, and it doesn't install the driver for the adapter. lsusb finds the adapter, but I don't get a wlan* listed in /dev/. how I can determine what module(s) are used to run this adapter on the desktop so I can load them on the older box? Or is there some package I should install from the CD to help auto-detect the adapter?
I am looking for a powerful (500mw+) wifi USB adapter for my netbook, and after spending quite a bit of time on Amazon, Newegg and Google I couldn't find anything that would work properly on Fedora without compiling the drivers and stuff. Some are reported to work on Debian distros, but couldn't find any reliable reports of them working on Fedora.
I have just started to work on Ubuntu (Ubuntu 10.4 LTS) and I am having some problems to get a WUSB600N vers. 2 802.11n adapter working. I have followed the procedure described at [URL] . The compilation has been successful and I can see the kernel loaded an the module detected:
adrien@ubuntu:/$ lsmod | grep rt3572 rt3572sta 612272 1 adrien@ubuntu:/$ lsusb Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
The wireless adapter is detected by the system and it can scan the neighboring APs (cf. below with MAC address made unreadable):
This is going to sound weird but my wifi interconnection is really good i never have any problems but when i open skype, go to options and click test webcam my wifi disconnects and will not return till i restart the pc
I'm running 10.04
keep the connection and the webcam working will be great
I am on a toshiba laptop with a wireless internet connection, I have recently purchased a logitech pro 9000 webcam , I plan on using it for skype. So the wifi is working fine, I plug in the usb webcam and all of the sudden I just lose connection and my keyring doesn't even remember the wep key for my wifi. I am amateur with linux based system but I have taken a operation system class so I know some stuff and can follow instructions quite well.
I just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 but other than that the most annoying thing I've found is that my wifi will randomly disconnect from the network...like it will say its still connected but pages wont load and all my torrents just stop, and then I have to manually disconnect from the network and then reconnect and it works for about a min and then happens again. I couldn't even get enough internet to post this from my laptop so I had to post this at school from a windows. Idk whats going on but it sucks because I cant really use the comp without the internet..
