Networking :: Ubuntun 9 Creates New Internet Connection Each Time And Drops?

Apr 23, 2010

I could not find an answer to this. I can connect to the internet no problem after I edit the connection name to NETGEAR instead of our last name. After a while it looks like it renews the connection and created a new one with the wrong name. The connection drops. It looks to me it is not using the same wireless connection each time but creating new ones that do not work for the above mentioned reason. What can I do to stop the loop and have it use the same connection always?

Ubuntu Networking :: Server 9.10 Lan Connection Drops ?

Jan 23, 2010

I got a new low power file server (Atom 330 with ion), but didn't enjoy it since.

I installed Ubuntu server 9.10 64bit.

I randomly experience connection drops. As I'm installing and testing, there are lots of ssh windows open, I transfer much data using scp from my laptop to the server (all connected to wired lan).

Connection drops are as follows: ssh windows terminate with "connection reset by peer", but not always all the ssh windows terminate. For example, I edited a mediatomb config using nano, that stayed open even with scp and all other ssh windows cut.

I also have apache2 installed because I'm running urd (a usenet download tool). It seems that when I start the deamon, connection drops. So I killed apache2 to try out but that didn't solve the problem.

I left ping run all the time, and the server is pinging back all the time, which is really strange as I thought that a connection drop means the whole network interface going down.

When this drop occurs, I have to wait 2 minutes until I can ssh back into the server.

I also installed mediatomb, but it isn't really fun to stream a video to my ps3 as it always hangs after 5 to 10 minutes.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Connection: WAN Drops But LAN OK

Aug 17, 2010

I've had a computer running Ubuntu connected to my TV for a few weeks now, but as of yesterday, I can't get it to keep a connection to the Internet. Everything works well for an hour or so after a reboot, but then no WAN connections work. When this happens, no sites load in Firefox or Chrome, I can't ping Google, I can't SSH to the box from work, and none of the pages I have running on apache load from remote computers. However, all local area connections seem to work fine. SSH from within my LAN takes much longer than usual, but it does still connect.

Networking :: OpenSwan VPN Drops Connection After 5 To 15 Minutes

Feb 18, 2011

Hello, I've installed OpenSwan with xl2tpd on my server, and set it up for roadwarriors connecting using certificates.

My server is Debian 5.0.8, I am running xl2tpd 1.2.0, and Openswan IPsec 2.4.12, my clients are all Windows, and I am testing my setup on a Windows 7 client.

I have no problem connecting to the server, but after some time the connection drops. I removed the idle option from the ppp config but it does not make any difference.

Even when I create constant traffic with ping -t the connection drops also.

I have no problems reconnecting right away.

I have been hacking at this for a couple of days, reading every post I can find, but I have not found a solution to my problem.

Here are my configs and logs:

CONFIG FILES:

/etc/ppp/option.l2tpd
-----------------------------
ms-dns 10.248.75.4
ms-wins 10.248.75.4
asyncmap 0

Fedora Networking :: Mobile Broadband Drops Connection After 30s

May 8, 2010

I'm having problems with my mobile connection. This has been working fine for months, but in the past few days it has connected OK, I've been able to transfer data, but after 30s the connection closes. Setup is Acer AA1 with F12 connecting via bluetooth to Nokia 3110c on O2.

So to try and figure out what's happening I put the bluetooth dongle in my desktop PC, also running F12, made a connection and again it dropped out after 30s. Then I fired up windows on the AA1 and made a connection using the same dongle, this time it held up OK. This leads me to think that something has changed recently in F12 to upset it.

Ubuntu Networking :: XP Drops Connection To Samba Server

Apr 7, 2010

In order to get my shares working I first have to connect to the windows shares from the Ubuntu machine. Then I can connect to the Samba shares from the windows machine. If I don't continue to use the shares. It'll drop the connection and I have to unmount the windows shares and start the process over. The wireless network still shows as being connected but I get an error on the windows machine if I try to connect. I've Googled this and it appears to be a Windows problem. I know this is a ubuntu forum but thought I'd ask for any info. I believe that this is also what is giving me shared printer issues as well.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Connection Drops On Laptop?

May 1, 2010

I'm having a really strange problem with my wifi connection on my laptop. The ethernet connection works fine and so does the wifi connection - as long as I sit within one meters range from my router! As soon as I take the laptop further away the connection drops. The router is still being found by network-manager and the signal is just below 100%, but when I try to establish a connection it fails.

I'm sitting here on a fresh Ubuntu 10.04 install, and I had exactly the same problem with 9.10. That time I went through a lot of different procedures, and in some strange way the problem was solved. I haven't been that lucky this time though, I've tried reinstalling network-manager, using ndiswrapper, installing the wireless backports package, tried all kinds of drivers.. nothing works.

There shouldn't be any problem with the connection itself; I've had a perfect connection downstairs but now I can't even connect if I stand two metres from the router! Has anyone experienced anything like this and managed to fix it? My wireless card is Atheros AR2413. This is an example from daemon.log

I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5. 160GB HD, 1GB RAM model. I've done a fresh install and an upgrade of 10.04 and have the same problem both ways. I am able to connect to my wireless connection but it is dropped after about 5 minutes and have to wait about the same time to reconnect. I've had to roll back to 9.10 being that I use the netbook for work and school on a daily basis.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Connection Drops 10 Seconds After Boot / Fix It?

Jun 3, 2010

I have had this issue for a while on my centos 5.4 dedicated server with 1and1. If I reboot my system, my connection starts and then drops in about 10 seconds after the system has booted.I connected through the serial console and noticed there was only one thing that seemed suspicious while booting. named could not start for some reason. So my question is - are these 2 problems related? If not, what could be the reason for my connection to drop?At the moment the only way of getting the connection back up is by running dhclient. This works until the next reboot.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Drops Randomly For A Split Second

Jun 5, 2010

I could not find a solution to this problem anywhere. I use a ubuntu server to play (stream) mp3s and movies to other computers on my network. It works most of the time, but sometimes in the middle of a movie or a song it will drop/hiccup--saying it is "not reachable". I am not overtasking the server at all, and merely playing an mp3 that takes up less than 10% of the bandwidth, yet it drops it for a split second.

I have a WRT160N router (DD-WRT of course) with 4 clients connected (2 of which are wired). The ubuntu server is connected via ethernet and all machines have the same issue. It can't be the router because another Windows machine works just fine for streaming these files. I just can't understand how it can lose connection for a second or so. It may just be the file-system or some service that is hiccuping, but I have no idea...

Ubuntu Networking :: Server Drops Connection Momentarily

Dec 30, 2010

I have a server running Ubuntu 10.04. I use it for mysql as well as samba file sharing across 10 computers. It had been working out great. I only ever needed to restart after I would install updates and to sort of thing. Starting this week however, it has started kicking all the computers off of both mysql and the samba shares every few minutes. It is very strange. The mysql connection can be restored just by closing the database and reopening it. The file shares are only a problem if you try to access them though a program other than your file browser (e.g. save a file you are working on in word to the server). The server never shuts down and all services can be reconnected immediately. It is very strange. I do believe that the server installed some automatic updates at the beginning of this week when this all started happening. I am not sure if one of the updates is causing the server to do this or not.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Drops Out After 15 Minutes?

Jun 13, 2011

Having struggled to get the wireless connection at least working I find it drops out after 15 minutes or so. When I check for wireless connections I can see none at all and the "Disable/Enable wireless conncection" has disappeared, the Network one is still there. I get an auto reconnection if I reboot and all is well for another 15 minutes. Is there any way i can recover the situation without a reboot? I am trying to install the hplip-3.11.5 driver for my new wireless printer,the program take a while to install and by the time it has started looking for the printer the connection has dropped out. I can't be sure but I don't think it was dropping out before I connected the printer using my wired pc. All good fun but I'd like to get it sorted so I can get the engine back in my motorbike, the sort of technology I prefer!

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Drops Out For Firefox

Jan 7, 2010

We have three computers at home. I have the only one running Linux, the other two are running Windows XP and using Belkin Wireless G USB Adapters. I started using Linux around November, and used a powerline ethernet cable. (It consists of two parts. One part you plug into your router and the power socket beside it, and the other you plug into your computer and the power socket beside that. It then uses the power lines as a network, and acts like a normal ethernet cable. I used the 'Auto eth0' connection without much problem). Back then, my internet would stop working once every few hours but only for firefox. Other programs such as bittorrent and Spotify continued working.

However, since I got back from holiday a few days ago the situation's worse. The internet regularly pauses (every few minutes, including spotify and msn) for about 30 seconds, and then comes back. Downloads are not cancelled, as they are when I am disconnecting from the internet, they merely seem to pause. The other two computers in our house don't have this problem, and I have tried the wireless adapter, yet it seems to pause at the same times as the wired connection. I know that it too used to work back in November.

Networking :: Internet Connectivity Drops With Ubuntu 10.10

Jan 23, 2011

I had my desktop running ubuntu 10.10 at my sisters house hooked up to a router sharing internet with her boyfriend never had a problem with it there. I moved into my own apartment this week plugged the cable modem directly into the broadcom ethernet card and couldn't get an ip or anything it wouldn't connect period so I ended up hooking it up usb which works but only at speeds of 5-7mbit when I have 15mbit connection. So I put another ethernet card in hoping it was just problem with the card and tried it that worked.

I got a connection but it was incredibly slow like getting maybe 5k a second so I open network tools in administration menu and start pinging google. While I'm waiting on a bandwidth test to complete and it takes off getting like 20mbit keeps that connection for a while then out of nowhere just drops to almost nothing. Again for a few minutes then falls off completely so I restart and it does the exact same thing starts off slow then something clicks and it works great for 5 min then nothing?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Drops When Screen Locks?

Jan 22, 2011

I just got a wireless dongle because in my house wired is not possible, but now I am getting problems. The dongle is a tp-link that turned out to be plug&play (unlike windows) and seems to work perfectly, except when the screen locks. I have tried to download overnight several times and it seems like a few minutes after the screensaver comes on or after I lock the screen, the connection is dropped. It works completely fine normally. So what changes when Ubuntu (its maverick with all updates) locks the screen? Also, when I log back in, I have to unplug the dongle and plug it back in to get it to connect again.

This is really REALLY annoying, enough to make me switch back to windows if I can only download while I'm looking at the screen.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Regularly Drops With Torrents

Apr 24, 2011

My wireless connection drops after a while when downloading torrents. I have to reconnect manually. Current configuration is Macbook Pro 5.5 with Broadcom card and Lucid. I've tried with Transmission and KTorrent. It's not a network problem as my Win laptop works smoothly and with higher transfers rates (i.e. 1MB/s in Win vs. 300KB/s at most in Ubuntu).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Drops While Downloading A With Bittorrent Client

May 29, 2011

I tried Ubuntu, Kubuntu and now Xubuntu, all 11.04. I've also tried Deluge, Transmission and Ktorrent. With 10.10 everything worked fine (all variants). Also, in Windows 7 it's working fine. But now it drives me crazy. As soon as I start a torrent, the download starts but after 30 seconds or so the download drops to a zero. Also, I'm not able to browse anymore. The networkmanager tells me I still have a connection.

Some say it has something to do with the number of peers the client connects to, or it's my router. My router isn't the problem, as it's working fine with 10.10 and windows. So maybe it's the number of peers right? Question. Why can I connect with over 200 peers at the same time while I'm using 10.10 or windows, but can't do it with 11.04? Better put, what should I do to get this working fine again? Going back to 10.10?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Wlan0 Connection Drops Network Manager Indicates Still Connected?

May 13, 2010

I can connect to the wireless at my school, but the connection drops frequently and regularly. Network Manager still shows bars indicating the network strength and shows that it's connected to the network in the dropdown. Selecting the network again causes it to indicate that it disconnects and reconnects. At this point I have wireless until the connection drops again. Possibly relevant details: This is the Purdue PAL2.0 network, which can be tricky to connect to, particularly for Linux users. It's a hidden network using WPA2 and PEAP. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1420n laptop, circa August 2007.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Drops - Access Point Not Assigned

Aug 19, 2010

I have Ubuntu command line only installed on my HTPC (it is XBMC Live installation). Kernel is 2.6.31-16-generic. My wi-fi card is AW-NE770 from AzureWave (mini-pci on Zotac Atom motherboard). I have successfully configured wireless connection to my router. Unfortunately, after short period of time connection drops. When I restart /etc/network/interfaces all goes back to normal. When connection is dropped, iwconfig shows that access point is not assigned. I have already tried installing backport drivers, removing security on the network (WEP and WPA), assigning static IP or using DHCP. Nothing works. I know it is not the router or my internet because I can be at the same time on my laptop and that works fine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Router And The Modem Recognize Each Other But The Connection Drops Constantly

Sep 30, 2010

I'm running Lucid xubuntu. i have a netgear WG111v3 usb wireless card. The router and the modem recognize each other,. but the connection drops constantly.Other times it takes many tries to connect. There are 3 windows and one Xbox users in my house, all on the same router. When I spoke with 2 different people at Radio Shack, I was told that the software on the router is Windows based, so the Windows modems get top priority over Linux, hence the dropped signals. I was advised I could do One of three things:

1. Buy another router, one that specifically recognizes every operating system. That way, we all get equal bandwith.
2. Buy an antennae that boosts the signal.
3. Buy a booster for the signal that one cable end plugs into the router,then the device into a power outlet; the other in any power outlet, and then hardwire that to my ethernet card in my computer, so the signal stays constant. This is the output from the terminal:

[Code]....

Based on this information, what would be my best option. I can't run line all the way across the house to my computer; that would take 50-75 feet after winding it's way through the house. I don't use the ethernet card although it's still in the machine. Could it interfere with the signal?

Ubuntu Networking :: On Laptop (Samsung R580) Wireless Connection Drops Out

Nov 22, 2010

I've recently installed ubuntu 10.10 32 bit on an external HDD in order to use it as a portable operating system. An issue I have is when running on my laptop (Samsung R580) the wireless connection drops out however the nm-applet still shows it's connected. If I disconnect and reconnect it keeps asking for the access password. The wireless card on the laptop is the RTL8192E (not SE!). I have used the install on a couple of other machines with different wireless cards and no problems. Linux Kernel version is 2.6.35-22-generic. I have searched around and see that the drivers are in early development. If I tried installing the windows driver via ndiswrapper would this affect the portability of the operating system?

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell 1545 - Wireless Connection Drops After A Couple Of Minutes?

Apr 10, 2010

I have a Dell 1545 laptop with ubuntu 9.1 32-bit installed (the 64-bit had a bug with the wireless drivers which is why I have not used it). Initially, the laptop worked well with the wireless (a sky router with WPA security) but now, the wireless signal drops after a couple of minutes of usage. I have to reboot the laptop or sometimes reboot the router as well to regain the wireless signal. I am using the Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver.

I have an older dell inspiron 6400 as well with the same OS and driver and it works perfectly without any problems for hours / days.
