Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Dropped Every 3-4 Minutes

Jul 11, 2010

I've been using my current laptop since Ubuntu Edgy Eft and, since then, I never had any problem with wireless ( Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02) ) Since I upgraded to Lucid, my connection is dropped approximately every 3-4 minutes for 10s. Network-manager doesn't show anything but it is well visible with the netspeed applet that shows a warning sign "No connection" instead of the speed.This is very annoying and frustrating. I recall having seen the same issue in an blog article where the author was talking about his upgrade to lucid. It was just one line and I didn't care a lot at the time and cannot find the article back.

Is there anyone having heard about a possible issue ? (I've upgraded from Karmic when Lucid was still in Beta, so it might be the cause).

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless N Dropped Connections

Jul 4, 2011

I'm working right now with ubuntu 11.04 on my asus ul30vt-x1, my wireless n network is working on a linksys e3000 router, my issue is basically with long file transfers. When the issue started i was reaching speeds of 100 Mbps through my wireless network even when I'm connected at 150 Mbps. However when at this speed, I don't know why, the connection is dropped after some minutes or even seconds. I made some testing on windows, I'm reaching 70 Mbps there and no problem at all with dropping the connection.

So my conclusion is that for some reason the linux driver, in my case, is not able to handle such speed of 100 Mbps. I know that a wireless network will have a throughput of aprox 60% the wireless speed. Right now im trying to apply traffic shapping to my transfers so i can get 70 to 80 Mbps, its being working so far.

Networking :: Wireless Is Flakey -- Dropped Connections, Poor Speed?

Jun 15, 2010

My wireless is flakey -- dropped connections, poor speed, etc. As diagnosis, I loaded the 'wavemon' utility so that I might watch the radio and signal and noise.Things will be good, then fall off, then get better, then go away entirely. Repeat continuously and randomly. For these experiments, my laptops -- more than one -- are on a table.The table is roughly 15-20 ft laterally from the access point. The access point is also 8 ft above the floor vs. 3 ft table height.(grin) While the signal "wobbles" everything else is mechanically stable and otherwise not moving.

SUSE / Novell :: Wireless Signal Being Dropped And/or Not Being Picked Up?

Jul 26, 2010

I recently switched to openSUSE 11.2 and updated to 11.3 almost immediately. Everything appears to be working well, with the minor exception of my wireless.I go to connect and one of two things will happen. Either it will hang in a constant loop of preparing to connect and then asking for the security key and then back to connecting. That or it will just not connect period.I'm using a dell wireless 1397 mini-card.

Networking :: Dropped Packets But Only For TCP Connections?

Oct 1, 2010

One of our RHEL 5.3 servers has trouble about 30% of the time with TCP-based communications, but it does not seem to be firewall issues. From another computer on the same switch, you can SSH to the server sometimes and other times the SSH command will just hang. When it hangs, you can often just Ctrl+C and try it again and it works. Same with HTTP connections. You'll get part of a web page and then FireFox will just hang waiting for the rest and eventually time out. Same goes for communication initiated FROM the server. SSH'ing from the server to any outside server or connecting to any web site works sometimes, but most times not. iptables if off. No other firewalls are running. Tcpdump shows communication gets so far and then stops. It does not matter whether tou run tcpdump on that server or the client connecting to it. Either way you see the connection stops working. MEANWHILE, pinging with small or large packets works flawlessly. 10,000 packets, zero drops.

Networking :: Dropped Packets On Firewall

Jan 11, 2010

I've recently installed Ubunter 9.10 Server Edition to use as a NAT firewall for the lab I run. I'm using iptables to do NAT forwarding and everything works great except that, occasionally, connections seem to break. Ssh connections close with "Connection reset by peer" and HTTP connections just stall out.I believe this has to do with the firewall's internal network interface occasionally dropping packets.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ifconfig Showing Millions Of Dropped Packets?

Feb 28, 2010

with my other ethernet card problem solved, I suddenly run into this:

Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:e3:16:37:4c
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::202:e3ff:fe16:374c/64 Scope:Link


This card was working perfectly fine up until....an hour ago and it started doing this. My iptables isn't blocking it somehow, because I didn't change anything. I tried reverting to an older kernel and that didn't help. It's not the network cable, it works fine in any other card. Also, the dropped packets seem to count down? It seems to go down by exactly one every time I run ifconfig, no matter the length of time in between running it.

Ubuntu Networking :: DHCP Clients Table In Router Is Dropped

May 23, 2011

when I change the hostname on my Ubuntu server, the DHCP clients table in my router is dropped.I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu Server 10.10. My router is a Linksys WRT54GL with firmware version 4.30.15. I'm changing the hostname by modifying /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname. I've also tried changing the hostname using the Linux hostname command in a terminal, but this does not seem to behave correctly according to the manpages (it does not actually change the hostname, or update either of the aforementioned files).

I've also tried using a different router - a Linksys BEFSR41 - but the DHCP table is still dropped when I change the hostname on my server (although this router is not all that different from my other one).

Networking :: Connections In Virtual Machine Getting Dropped?

Mar 17, 2011

I've forwarded incoming connections on port 25 to my virtual machine with the following commands:

sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -i eth0 -d --dport 25 -j DNAT --to

sudo iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -i eth0 -d --dport 25 -j ACCEPT

The strange thing is the connections coming through in the virtual machine seem to be getting dropped. A port scan from the internet says the port is closed, but it is not the case as I can see the connection coming through. As you've probably worked out, I am running a mail server. When I send myself test mail, the connections from the senders mail server also gets dropped.

Networking :: Packets Go Out One Tunnel / Come Back Another / Then Are Dropped

Dec 5, 2010

I've run into a of a routing issue pertaining to packets leaving a firewall, traversing and IPSec tunnel, hitting the target and then returning via a different tunnel, finally arriving back on the source firewall but on a different interface from where it started. Once the packet has returned to the firewall it is dropped I've been unable to discover the reason for the drop. Two sides to the system, Firewall A and Firewall B. Each firewall provides the default gateway to its respective side and offers a backup IPSec tunnel to the high capacity tunnel handled internally. The Layer 3 Switch uses OSPF and takes care of the bulk of the behind the scenes routing between the sides. In case of failure the Layer 3 switches direct traffic to use the Firewall tunnels to route traffic.

Networking :: TCP Packets Seem To Be Dropped On Debian Squeeze W/NAT?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm running a Debian Squeeze 6.0.1a box that's connected to my ISP via an L2TP connection that's managed by OpenL2TPD. The box is configured to perform NAT from local clients (on eth0) to the internet (on ppp0).

However, I'm having an issue with TCP packets that are sent from the box itself to the internet (packets originally coming from the local clients get sent and received over the internet just fine)

I'm using this Python app to test this:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import socket, time
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.bind(('', 5003))
while 1:
conn, addr = s.accept()

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Router - Netgear DG834 - Connection Often Being Dropped

Jul 12, 2010

I have a Netgear DG834 ADSL router (v3) which I have used for a couple of years. Prior to that I had a v2 of the same router, but upgraded for the one that supports ADSL 2+ (here in the UK).

Recently I have been having problems with the connection often being dropped, and when I access for the router admin page, when it is not working I get no IP address listed for that of the ISP's server, and sometimes as well the upstream and downstream speeds are listed as 0 kbps.

Usually this was resolved by rebooting the router.

However, for the last couple of days, when using Ubuntu 9.04, the page of the router at will not load. I have tried numerous different browsers, and none of them will give the router admin page.

When I tried booting from a live CD of Fedora 13, the router admin page came up just fine, no problems (although still not getting a proper connection to the Internet).

I was going to try to use the older router I had, but so far, as I cannot access the router admin page in Ubuntu, I have not done so (not had the time, and now I am at work posting this).

So there must be a problem in Ubuntu that is preventing it showing the router's admin page. The Network connection details show that the router has given the PC an IP address of and the DNS servers are listed, so I know that Ubuntu is talking to the router, but it is not allowing me to access its settings in any way.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband Connects / But Won't Reconnect After Dropped Signal

Nov 8, 2010

I'm running a ZTE MF112 HSUPA USB stick (3 broadband dongle) for wireless broadband using network-manager.I can connect fine to mobile broadband, but every now and then, the signal drops and the connection is disconnected. When I try to reconnect it goes straight to network disconnected. It looks like it's not even trying to connect.Then when I right click on network manager, disable mobile broadband, then enable it again, works fine until the next disconnect.The point is, why do I have to keep disabling / enabling it? Pulling the dongle out works too. But there should be a workaround.

Networking :: Capture A Dropped Or Rejected Firewall Packet?

Jul 3, 2011

I'm running ubuntu 11.04, and using firestarter for my firewall. Logging events, all good, but I'd like to be able to (tcp)dump the packets being dropped/rejected. Wireshark is great after the event, but can I hook iptables and tcpdump together somehow so the system logs the entire packet rather than the summary when it says "no"? I've had a quick look/google, but can't find anything. I'm sure somebody must have wanted to do this before - any pointers people?

PS - will keep looking and post the answer if I find one....

Networking :: See The Number Of Packets Dropped By Kernel Due To Insufficient Queue Size?

Sep 15, 2010

As is known, there is a queue lies between the kernel subsystem and the network driver for incoming data. And if data come when this queue has no space for it, the data got dropped by kernel. Is there some way to see how many packets are dropped due to this buff penury? I tried netstat -s but could not find something useful. On the other hand, I found this 12176 packets collapsed in receive queue due to low socket buffer from netstat -s. I think this is something related to the per-socket buffer, but not the incoming queue between the network driver and kernel. Is this right?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Lost It - 'wmaster0 No Wireless Extensions', But Then Refers To Wlan0 As The Wireless Connection

Mar 28, 2010

A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.

Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:

1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.

2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).

3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.

Ubuntu :: First Keyboard Character Gets Dropped

May 27, 2010

Have Lucid installed on an Acer laptop. With an external keyboard plugged into a USB hub, then into the laptop, I have been losing the first character typed, sometimes. Most of the time it is OK, but it happens many times in an hour. If I am typing right along, no drops. Only the first character I enter is missing. Most of the time it is firefox I am typing into, but not always. My use of this machine is largely online, so probably that is coincidental.

This problem I have never seen before Lucid - I don't remember it in the beta ether, but I didn't run that too much.Versions 9.04 and before were OK (couldn't use 9.10 for other reasons).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: BD-ROM Dropped From BIOS After Booting To 9.10?

Mar 19, 2010

I just purchased a shiny new LG 10x BD-ROM Combo drive. I installed it without problems. The rest of my system consists of:

MSI k9a2 platinum mobo
AMD Phenom 9950
nvidia gtx260

That's probably everything pertinent. I have the SATA HDDs installed on SATA ports 1, 3, 4 (not the promise slots, 5 & 6), and the BD-ROM installed on SATA 2. I don't think that's an issue, though. I did replace a working sony opiartic (sp?) DVD-RW, so I don't suspect any cable issues (for that and for other reasons).

note: "restart" = "reboot via restart", as opposed to power down & turn back on.

1. I turn on the power. BIOS posts that it sees the BD-ROM in the SATA 2 spot.

2. I boot into Ubuntu 9.10 (updated with the latest x.20 kernel). It does take a little longer than usual to load between the grub menu and the login.

3. After login, the device shows up as cdrom0 in the "Places" menu. Clicking on it returns an error whether a disc is in the drive or not. At this point, however, the open/close button on the drive no longer works. Its as if it's lost all power or connection or something.

4. When I restart, BIOS hangs a while while posting. It shows only devices on SATA ports 1, 3, & 4. It's as if the BD-ROM doesn't exist anymore.


lspci and lspci -vvnn show nothing... well, technically they show everything BUT the drive. I'm planning on purchasing a second BD-ROM (different manufacturer, if I can help it), to test later, but I don't have high hopes. It could be a motherboard issue, I suppose, but updating the BIOS from 1.4 to the latest version (1.9) solved nothing. I don't suspect it's the hardware, though, since it works fine in Win7. I imagine that the culprit is linux/ubuntu, and I need some help figuring out if this is a fixable problem. I've been really, really happy with Ubuntu and linux in general. Ubuntu is my primary OS, with Win7 as my backup in case of emergencies, but I'm seriously considering wiping linux & using Win7 exclusively altogether with this severe hardware issue.

Ubuntu Installation :: Java Support Dropped Out?

Dec 30, 2010

Ubuntu 10.10, Firefox 3.6.13, IceTea6 ext, Greasemonkey, Firebug, FlashBug.. Everything was going just great, then poof. Firefox seems to have lost the ability to interpret java and javascript extensions. It's strange, I have a javascript extension that I've used a lot in the last 2 to 3 months. One night, was using- refreshed, gone.

Script was still there in GreaseMonkey, with all it's pointers to the web presence. I have Google Chrome with the same extension and it stiill works fine. Thought maybe it might be an install problem, so uninstalled/reinstalled Greasemonkey and the script//no change. Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and extensions//no change.

I used Firebug to inspect element on a familiar web page where I inserted a table with imbedded javascript. doesn't execute any of the onclick processes on it. This table "is" something that I have inserted on that same page previously with no problems and it executed those same onclick processes fine.

Which leads me to believe that somehow, in the past few weeks, I somehow lost the abilty to process java and javascript. Could this be to soem recent updates or upstream changes? Note-- I do have Eclipse IDE, JavaBeans IDE and Monkey Studio IDE installed on this instance of Ubuntu. I've stayed with Ubuntu's flavor of the OpenJDK, instead of going to Sun's JRE in an attempt to stay open to future shifts and directions.

Ubuntu :: Dropped Laptop, Lost Unreadable Partion?

Jun 13, 2010

I just dropped my laptop while it was on. It is a dual boot vista and Ubuntu machine (9.04) and Ubuntu was running at the time. The machine didn't go down and after I got done using it I shut it down normally. Now it will not come back up because grub is saying there is something wrong with the disk geometry. It did give me a command line, I forgot the exact error message but I can look it up if needed.

I tried plugging the hard drive into a different machine under a live cd but everything was in the lost and found folder (80 GB) and the folder was unreadable. I backed up the windows partition successfully using windows explorer and now have been looking at testdisk and Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery ($80) for the Linux partition. I don't know if it is ext3 or ext4, I may have bumped it up to ext4 from the default ext3 during the install. Also a few files on the windows partition were unreadable, so the disk definitely has some physical damage. I'm getting a new one along with a back up system for sure after all this is over.

I got tired of figuring out testdisk so I let the paid app run its free test overnight to see if I could recovery anything before I bought it, but it got hung up on a sector halfway through.

Going forward I think I will try Photorec next and then testdisk again if that doesn't work. Does Photorec get almost all the normal office (doc xls), music (mp3) and video files (mp4) not just pictures?

Security :: Anyway To NOT Log Dropped Ports 137 / 138 In Iptables?

Mar 30, 2011

We do NOT support samba on our Unbuntu servers but still zillions of windows machines are constantly trying to connect on the SMB ports. I've added a rule that drops access to destination ports 137-138 and that seems to work. But it creates many many log entries documenting that the packet has been dropped. I've been researching and cannot come up with a way to suppress logging for these drops.

Slackware :: Options Dropped In Sendmail 8.14.4?

Apr 25, 2011

I recently tried to upgrade my Slackware server's sendmail software from 8.14.3 to 8.14.4 and ran into a problem. In a nutshell all outbound non local mail is routed through a smart host requiring authentication. As a result I use a modified version of the "sendmail-slackware-tls-sasl-clamav.mc" to build the sendmail.cf. However, when I tried to run sendmail 8.14.4 with my newly created sendmail.cf I was greeted with the following.

Warning: Option: AuthMechanisms requires SASL support (-DSASL)
Warning: Option: AuthOptions requires SASL support (-DSASL)
Warning: Option: CACertPath requires TLS support
Warning: Option: CACertFile requires TLS support


Apparently SSLv2 is now considered weak and the directive is a good idea, but at present this directive is not supported by the sendmail in this package.
