Fedora Networking :: Wireless Connection With WMP600N Very Slow Or Non-existent
May 15, 2010
I have installed Fedora 12 OS which is using kernel 22.214.171.124-99.fc12.x86_64. I am using a Linksys WMP600N Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual Band card which has a Ralink chipset. I have installed the latest rt2860 driver which uses the 126.96.36.199-99.fc12.x86_64 kernel. If there is any other pieces of information that is need I can provide it.
Problem: I can use either the Ethernet connection which is built into my ABIT mother board or my PCI wireless card. My Ethernet connection works perfectly however; my wireless card comes up attaches to my wireless router; that's it. There is a strong signal, the WPA2 security password works correctly. I am able to ping my loop-back address and my DHCP IP address for my wireless card but I can not ping the router or anything outside of my box.
If I let the ping program run for a while and allow it to try to ping the router, after a period of time ~5minutes or so I will get several hits and then stop. The firewall does not change from my Ethernet connection to my wireless connection. The Wireless connection is a trusted interface in my firewall specifications. Questions/Thoughts:
Can I use the same OS provided routing table for my Ethernet connection for my wireless connection? Would the OS know which port to use by switching to a wireless connection (after reboot)? Do I need to somehow switch or bridge the port? Is the wpa_supplicant playing with my connection and opening it up and then shutting it down? Below are some netstat data: routing, interface table, statistics, and dmesg on the kernel driver rt2860.
i have just installed 10.10 under wubi, first time trying to use this network card under ubuntu. works fine on XP where it connects with good signal strength to a zyxel p-600 b/g router (my 3 other machines also connect fine to this router)
i am using WPA2, it takes 30secs to 1min to connect in the first place, then runs slowly and with intermittent disconnects, reports good signal strength in network manager.
i have been fortunate enough to have 3 machines that run ubuntu flawlessly out of the box..
I am new to fedora, but not so new to linux. I've got f13 installed on my netbook, and the speed and overall beter-ness? of it made me want to get it going on my desktop. I've installed, and have updated the kernel, and network manager (Along with a few other things). My problem is this; after about an hour or two I get a drop out, unable to reconnect. Until I use 'ifconfig wlan0 down > ifconfig wlan0 up' then it works great for about 10 minutes, slows down, and eventualy drops out. i updated networkmanager in the hopes it may have been that, but it really made only a slight difference.

I am using a linksys wusb54g > chipset ralink rt2510? (don't quote me on that its from memory). I am also using WPA encription. I am currently messing with those setting to see if that helps.
I'm having problems with my wireless. It connects without any problem, but it is very slow. Actually I have the impression that the connection velocity is varies from normal to very slow, however the average connection velocity is very slow. I have been looking up the forums for more the one month with any success. I have tried to install the compac-wireless drivers and the kmod-wl with many different network setups. For sure it is not a problem with my home network, since it works fine with my other old notebook running fedora 11 or when I boot in the windows.
My system configuration is: - sony vaio VPCCW23FX - card: Atheros AR9285 - driver: ath9k - operating system: fedora 12 - kernel 188.8.131.52-115.fc12.x86_64
I am a convert from Ubuntu (9.04 kept freezing on my laptop; when it did work, many packages it seemed were outdated--ie only Eclipse 3.2, rdesktop was messed up [and apparently is also in Fedora]), and I am having some trouble with getting my wireless working.I am running Fedora 11.First off, there is a problem when trying to connect when using DHCP. NetworkManager gets to the second green dot, and then after a short while I am given a message that the connection was disconnected.
Configuring the interface manually, not using DHCP, allows the connection to complete. However, the internet is very slow. There is a 15-30 sec delay before website loading actually commences, and then another delay each time an ad must be fetched from another server.How can I fix this delay? I know I have encountered it in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but I can't remember how I fixed it.About the rdesktop problem, if anyone is able to help [maybe I should post another thread?], the cursor color (the color of the pointer) is inverted---where it should be white it is black, and where it should be black it is white. I use rdesktop a lot to connect to my terminal server in my basement. Any idea how to fix it?
I'm running Fedora 12 on an Acer Aspire One with KDE. The built-in wireless works without a problem EVERYWHERE except at work. It's a shared wireless connection using WPA/WPA2 security.I can connect but it's "hit-and-miss" if I can do anything with it. Somedays it works well for a few minutes then has a period of inactivity - then slow - randomly receives...It worked flawlessly when the computer was running Windows7 no one else has connectivity issues but I'm the only one using Linux.
Since I've updated from 9.10 to 10.04, I'm having some difficulties to use the internet. Even though I can connect to my home wireless network, the connection is really slow. I've got a Dell Inspiron 1545, and here comes the configuration:
I am running Kubuntu 10.04 (32-bit) on a Sony VAIO VPCCW23FX, when I connected to my router through Wireless the connection is too slow and random, 3 kB - 50 kB. But when connect to the router through Ethernet cable I get the normal speed 265 kB. I read many posts but can't find solution, and already updated all packages. the Wireless card is:
Code: 02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) the output of iwconfig:
Code: wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:"zzzzplw9" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:25:68:9B:0D:FE Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
I just got a wireless card and I've been having connection issues under Linux. The chipset I have is a Ralink 2860 (the card itself is an Asus PCE-N13) and supports 802.11n speeds up to 300 mbps. I am connecting to a DLink DIR-655 router, which also supports 802.11n at 300 mbps. I get full bars when connecting to my router, and my router's connection information shows my computer connected as 802.11n with the signal at around 80%, but the data rate is usually around 5.5 mbps. (I've rarely seen it go up to 18 mbps) I can confirm this woefully slow speed with anything I try to do over the network. Additionally, my wireless connection will sometime be disconnected and network manager will often fail to connect. When it fails to connect, my router lists my comptuer with the correct IP address, so I know it is successfully connecting to the router and the router is accepting the connection, but network manager seems to not recognize this.
I am running Debian Squeeze (testing), but I have a custom kernel, which is 2.6.35 and is using Debian's kernel configuration. I have the newest firmware from Ralink's website, and I also tried the newest drivers, which made no difference. (I have since removed those drivers, since I'd prefer to use the drivers supplied with the kernel if possible, but I can install them again if necessary) I put this card in my main computer and booted under Windows, and it was able to connect with 100% signal (it's right next to the router) and at 300 mbps. I also tried it under Debian on my main computer (with the stock 2.6.33 kernel), but it only connected as 802.11g, and even at 100% signal it was only connected at 36 mbps. For comparison, my laptop with an 802.11g card and running Mac OS X can achieve the full 54 mbps at 84%.
I want to connect to a 300mbit network (802.11n). With Windows (the same Computer) I am able to connect with full speed, but with Ubuntu Maverick (64bit), and a lot of other distros I tested, I am only able to connect with 54mbit. The builtin wireless network card is an Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (rev 35). Is this a driver Problem? I updated to kernel version 2.6.37-rc2 via ppa sources, but with no luck. I tried to extract the windows driver and started it with ndiswrapper, but i properbly made somethng wrong, because the card did not show up, though ndiswrapper said adapter available... oO?
I have a problem with my wireless where when running the laptop from the battery the connection is very slow. When the laptop is connected to the power supply everything is fine, but the moment it's disconnected and run on the battery the speed drops when browsing the Internet or accessing files on other computers on my network.
The laptop is a Samsung SF310 Wireless chipset is BCM4313
In attempt to fix this I installed the latest drivers from the Broadcom site using this guide. When I enabled these drivers everything worked well. I did speed test and got the same speeds I get when connected via Ethernet:
Ping 51ms DL 4.31 UL 0.65
So I set the drivers to load at boot using this forum post as a guide as the steps in the Broadcom guide didn't work and rebooted the laptop on battery power. The wireless connected fine, but the slow speed problem had returned. Running a speed test got the following results
Ping 235 DL 0.54 UL 0.30
So I ran iwconfig when running from battery and then from power supply. Code: xxxx@xxxx ~ $ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated Link Quality:5 Signal level:215 Noise level:160 Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0 As can be seen the signal quality is 5 and signal level 215
Code: xxxx@xxxx ~ $ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated Link Quality:5 Signal level:214 Noise level:164 Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0
And when connected via the power supply the signal level is 5 and signal level 214. There may be some kind of power saving issue, although there are no relevant setting in the BIOS and I can't see anything in the various wireless control pannels. I have other wireless drivers and there are no problem with those.
Since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 my wireless connection has been extremely slow. The same happened with 10.10. Although that was quite different. Back then everything within my network moved slowly, but now it doesn't affect my web browser. It seems to have only slowed the application centre and update manager. I am still waiting for the flash plugin to download and install for testing ....., but I am torrenting Ubuntu 11.04 right now and have actually hit the limit of my bandwidth (1.1 MB/s) whereas the speed in the software centre and update manager was in the region of 45 kb/s.
I'm not sure if this is because I have installed extra drivers found here after I did some research.
Although my web surfing is fast and stable, I would like to get my updates and applications downloading properly. Does anyone know what I can do?
From my 2-hour googling spree I know you may want the results from the command "lspci"
Code: root@Felicia:/home/silkworm# lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
my cisco wireless card model # wmp600n. Fedora doesn't even recognize that its there and i haven't been able to find any linux drivers for it, tried installing the driver using wine but still isnt working for me...
/sbin/lspci reports this: 01:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI iwconfig reports nothing Network manager doesn't see it. The card works when I run it from Win 7. I tried rt2800 and rt2860. no results I am fairly new to Linux and I don't know all of the command line functions, How to get my wireless PCI card detected. After I installed the rt2860 driver, I didn't reboot. After rebooting, the card lit up and now I am functional. Woo Hoo.
I've been troubleshooting this problem for several hours now and I'm out of ideas. My internet connection is fine in Windows 7 but an older computer I resurrected (AMD Athlon 1.7 GHz, 512 MB RAM, Fedora 14 Security Lab Spin) is having the stop-and-go's with its internet connection. It will work for very briefly, then it gets extremely slow, where any page I try to navigate to in Firefox 3.6 takes forever to load.I have a DSL connection and my DSL modem is connected to a Linksys WRT54G2 router. I set up a static IP in Windows but don't know how to do this yet in Fedora 14, and I need to get my internet connection working so I can troubleshoot further, but with it being so slow, I'm having to use Windows to search for problems and then switch over to the Fedora box via KVM (IOGEAR), which I also just started using. I don't think that would be related, but who knows.
I am running FC13 on a Compaq Presario 2100 using a Broadcom BCM4306. I was able to get it running thanks to Fedora Unity Project. But It's a very unstable connection. I don't know what settings to adjust or enable or disable. It's not my router, this is the only wireless connection in the house that I have trouble with.
Even with both machines in the same room, I'm only getting 1Mbps when using a pair of TL-WN321G wireless USB adapters to link my main box and my laptop. I'm using Fedora 11 on both machines. It is just as bad if I use the laptop's built-in wireless. lsusb shows the adapter uses the Ralink RT2501USB chipset. iwlist wlan0 rate gives "wlan0 unknown bit-rate information."
I'm facing problems with Fedora13 and the AR9285 wifi card... the connection is just too slow, and the wired connection works fine. I just figured out that a lot of VAIO users (so am I) were in the same situation, and solved their problem by downloading ath9k drivers from linuxwireless.org. Fine, I did it! That's what I found :
Building and installing cd /path/to/compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc5 ./scripts/driver-select <driver-name> make sudo make install
...but make is looking for source files in /usr/src/kernels/2.6.34-7-61.fc13.x86_64/build/ , which doesn't exist! The /usr/src/kernels/ folder is just empty. I also found something about the fact that Fedora13 didn't came with kernel's source files... So how can I install that driver? (I didn't find the package via yum...)
My wireless was connecting fine, but it was impossible to browse with. So, after searching around for a while I found a thread where it said to enter this and reboot. #echo "net.ipv4.tcp_moderate_rcvbuf=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf #echo "net.ipv4.tcp_default_win_scale=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf But after entering that and re booting, now I cant even connect to the wireless. It says connecting but times out.
I bought the wireless PCI network card WMP600N from Linksys. I tried to connect with my router, but no success. The correct driver is installed(RT2800), the necessary package WPA_supplement is also installed. My providers settings are WPA-PSK with a shared key. Key encryption is TKIP. I can't choose TKIP in the Yast network menu. so i chose passphrase.
the weird thing is that the wifimanager says WEP is on but it's not, at least not in my router and i did not setup WEP to. see picture 6. i had to use manual boot "ifup wlan0" because when i use boot at startup the whole systeem freezes. anyway, when i use ifup wlan0 as root in the konsole, the system also freezes. i have explained it clearly, please take a look a the pictures.
Basically the problem is a slow download speed over my wireless connection that does not occur in Windows Vista. The reason I'm so annoyed is that the speed is not constantly slow. It bursts at around 600kb/s (good for my internet connection). The problem is that while trying to download a file it bursts for about a second,then total throughput decreases to +/- 1kb/s for a few seconds, then another burst and so on. Note the file I'm downloading is a http:// download, not p2p or anything. I've attached a screenshot of the System Monitor. Screenshot-System Monitor.png Some additional info. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all available updates installed. The browser in use is Google Chrome.
No improvement since I first reported this problem, I am hoping somebody can now advise. Using openSUSE11.3 Linux 184.108.40.206-0.5-default i686 with kde 4.4.4 release 3.Problem is the wait of sometimes over 2 minutes before the wifi connection is available.Two questions:- 1. Why does it take so long? Longer by far than it to be with previous openSUSE releases. Much longer than with that other OS!!!2. How do I remove the wallet process. Not needed in present environment so I would like direct connection without having to open wallet. I didn't set this up, it just happened after I had upgraded to 11.3 and I need to know how to disable it to save time.
In Gnome, I can get my wireless connection working no problem. However, my work PC uses KDE and I'm kind of used to it now, so I've installed KDE on to my Fedora system (v11, 64-bit). I cannot get a wireless connection with KDE at all.
As an aside, Gnome manages my dual monitor set-up just fine, whilst KDE doesn't - it gives me the same display on both screens.
why what is effectively a different front-end should make such a difference to the internal programs - a bit like respraying your car from red to blue and then finding out you need to change the engine as well.
My Fedora 10 install runs from a single PC, from a single location. I'd like the connection, via wireless, to automatically connect to my home network. Right now, I suspect that NetManager scans all the options first.But that's a waste of time. How do I set things up to skip all that and just grab the only connection that will work?I have NetManager set up to "Auto linksys" with MTU set for "automatic" too. I've Googled around for this, but maybe have missed something. Too often, at login I do NOT connect though the network is available. I suspect there's a way to lock this in that I have not yet discovered...
I have fedora12 installed on my old laptop. I would like to use it as a wireless router so that I can use my new laptop without wires. The old laptop will be wired connected to the internet. I have already tried creating a wireless ad-hoc connection with the Network Manager and I manage to connect to the internet with my new laptop but only if I don't use any protection. If I want that connection to use WPA or WEP-128 it doesn't work!
I decided to give linux a try on an old laptop I had at my house. It's a Dell Inspiron (don't remember the model, will update as soon as I get home). Installation was flawless and extremely fast, but I cannot connect to my house's wireless network. I had exactly the same problem with Ubuntu, which is why I tried Fedora. I had installed Ubuntu over a year back and it had worked flawleslly, but I had to loan the pc to a friend so I reinstalled Windows.
Wireless drivers are Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 which should be included in the kernel. I am a complete Linux/Fedora n00b, just want to start learning.
I am trying to setup a wireless connection between F10 and a HP J6480. I dnloaded the linux driver hplip-3.9.2, disabled the SELinux and ran the install. When I choose method of connecting - wireless it would not discover the device. The only way was to enable the USB descovery. Doing so, the computer found the printer and all is fine. What am I missing trying to enable the wireless connection. Note, that during this process, the USB was not connected. Also, I dual boot with Vista and I can run the printer wireless.
