My netbook model is Asus eeepc 1201n and I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 but I had the same problem while running 10.04: wireless disconnects and reconnects every 30 minutes or so and, after this has happened for a few times, it doesn't reconnect and keeps asking for the password.
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.
A fresh Xubuntu 10.10 install will give me access to my network, but with fluctuating speeds, and certain pages load forever. I have tried the blacklist edit as well as ndiswrapper, and neither have helped me. I can't find a madwifi guide for this issue either. Details: Upon fresh install of xubuntu 10.10, wireless is detected. I enter my, key, hit google, and all is good. Then I try to log into my online classes. Firefox hung forever. So I tried a few other sites, and to my disappointment, random sites seemed to fail. Brand-new, fresh, clean Xubuntu 10.10 install, Toshiba Satellite M45-165.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and the wireless connection on my Asus EeePC 1000HE is not working. Network is seen but connection is always rejected and pops up the dialog requesting my password. Password is entered properly and using proper protocol (WPA2) Network is working perfectly under Windows 7 and Fedora.
I've tried a few suggestions in similar threads.. to no avail. I thought I had it fixed a few days ago when I noticed that the wireless would randomly disconnect only on battery power. So I tried "iwconfig wlan0 power off" and then reconnected. It worked, for a while, but then after minutes/hours later it will disconnect and stay disconnected until I restart. If you need anymore information, let me know. I might need to be walked through the process; though, as I'm a worthless noob.
I understand that wireless is one of the most common problems with Linux, although I did not have this experience with past distributions or versions. After two years away from Ubuntu I installed 10.04 and everything is working fine except the wireless connection. Actually, it does work and connect, but goes up and down, loses connection and in most cases does not reconnect, unless I am 1 meter from the router. The room next door is already too far, a place where I normally have my laptop connecting perfectly with XP.
I am using a Toshiba M70,some additional information below:

I'm using an Atheros ath9k wireless card that has been pretty stable since Ubuntu 9.04. I did a clean install of Natty and ever since my wireless connection has been pretty unstable.
It doesn't actually disconnects but I lose all connectivity. The wifi card continues loaded with a static IP Address assigned to it but I cannot connect to anything. The only way to fix it is restating the network manager and I have to do it at least a couple of times every day.
I tried to whitelist ath_pci on /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath_pci.conf but the problem still persists. Also yesterday I enabled the ubuntu backports on my software sources but so far no kernel updates.
Here are some of the messages filling up the logs:
I'm having trouble with my Samsung Netbook N220 and its Realtek 8192 wireless card and could use some help with diagnostics. I would like to use the netbook as a server and after a day or so the system stops responding. What I'd like to know:
- What do the "========>ieee80211_parse_info_param(): athros AP is exist" spam messages actually say? Does anyone else have this and stability problems?
- Why is the realtek driver package not working?
I'm running Ubuntu Netbook 10.04/Kernel 2.6.32-24-generic. Initially the card was unable to connect, so I installed the Realtek driver rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0017.0507.2010 which adds a kernel module r8192se_pci.ko. At first my system was hanging during bootup. I then restored /lib/modules/2.6.32-24-generic and now the card is connecting but the system is unstable. The 2.6.32-23-generic kernel, modules listed below, still has modules as installed by the realtek driver and is not working. Below the drivers supplied by ubuntu
Every time I download torrents in Ubuntu 11.04 on my desktop, using Transmission or Deluge clients, the wireless transfer speed abruptly drops off, becomes very choppy, and in general doesn't remain stable. It's not only the torrent download that slows down, but it's everything including web surfing, even though I'm not maxing out my connection speed. It's not that I'm getting disconnected from my router, it's just that the wireless transfer speed drops off, becomes intermittent, and never gets back up to full speed.
At first I thought that my ISP was throttling my connection, but this issue doesn't happen with a direct cable connection to my router, nor did it happen when I was running Ubuntu 10.04 before. It also doesn't happen when I'm downloading the exact same torrents over wireless using my netbook running Ubuntu Netbook Remix. This issue ONLY seems to happen when using a bittorrent client while on wireless on Ubuntu 11.04 on my desktop. I can max out my internet connection speed by streaming videos, downloading from FTP, etc. using wireless just fine, and the transfer speed remains stable. This also seems to happen with a couple of different wireless USB adapters (rt73usb or rtl8187 drivers).
Since I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 my wireless connection is very unstable. I install the needed wireless drivers from 'Hardware Drivers' (Broadcom STA wireless driver) and I got wireless connection, but it randomly disconnect, and also connection is very slow.
I think that the problem are the drivers which are not very compatible with this version of Ubuntu, which means we need to wait for update? I have HP ProBook 4510s laptop, Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN network card & Gembird NSW-R2 router. I'm only having this problem on Ubuntu 10.04, on other OS's the internet is fine.
On a new ASUS eee PC 1015P, the Windows 7 o/s supplied works fine. Experimenting with a Fedora 14 Linux o/s, currently just booting to a Live User system on a USB Stick, there is no wireless networking. In case it is relevant, the wireless LAN Card details (as reported from lspci) are: Ralink RT3090 802.11n 1T/1R Wireless LAN Card Driver Version 18.104.22.168 Should I be expecting wireless to be working on the USB version, do I need to do a full install to get wireless or is it maybe a drivers problem?
I have just purchased an Asus EeePC 1001HA netbook and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (love the look and the brilliant interface), but I can't get the wireless network to work. I am currently running from a 4Gb USB stick that has the LiveCD on it with a 1Gb persistence. The network notification area only shows wired and VPN connections. I have tried installing the Ralink 3090 driver but I have had no luck in getting the wireless to work.
I have recently bought an ASUS Eeepc 4g and i am having trouble trying to run/open jar. files. As i am only 14 Years of age i am having quite a time trying to sort out this problem.. i have opened the command console and tried all the codes to try open or create shortcuts to try open and run a jar.file but i am not succeeding, if you can help me please write back on this post giving me a step-step plan on how to fix this! and if so then great would make my life alot easier on this laptop. and by the way i need to try open this file called rsbot v1.23 as it is a jar.file i am unable to run or open it by saving to the disk.
My openSUSE's working unstable and very slowly! Wireless is starting very late.It appears 10min later after i loggen in,and wants me to enter wireless password.This windows is showing up so late,and I can't connect internet before it shows up.
Last year I installed UNR on my 7yr old daughter eeepc901. It came with XP Home but was always crashing and running slow. Since all she needed it for was browsing childrens sites and the odd email from myself i decided to put something better on there and in the end choose UNR.
Its been running great for, However I have now taken a new where I am now based in Germany. I have set her up with a skype acct and last night we managed a video call for a couple of minuets although I couldnt hear her very well (couldnt figure out how to get her to turn the volume on up her Mic) When I first set skype up i set it to auto login which when ever I used the laptop to test it worked fine.
However as I am now in Germany and not able to really help with the settings The first thing I thought of doing was to upgrade the version of skype her laptop is running. So I can go to skype and downlaod 2.1 beta 2 for linux would this be the correct version?
Also what I need is a set of instructions that I can give to either my 7yr old daughter or her mother (daughter is probably the better of the two with computers) on how to install the new version. Mum is used to windows where she just double clicks an .exe file and follows the prompts.
Also where would I need them to look in order to get them to turn the mic volume up?
I have an XP laptop, currently running very low on HDD space and RAM capacity, waiting to be replaced. Very slow indeed. It recently had problems booting up, and now takes about 20 minutes to get fully started. Is it safe/advisable to run the demo version of Ubuntu from the LiveCD? I really can't afford to trash or crash my computer, it's got lots of important data on it etc.
I recently installed F14 on my EEEPC 1000H. Fedora is the distro that fully supports it, at least F13 (with the wireless drivers installed seperately). I noticed that F14 worked totally out of the box, without even having to install wireless drivers. However, there is a problem: If I turn off the wireless (using Fn + F2, I haven't tried any other ways) I then can't turn it back on. I mean, the lights indicating the wireless is working are on, Fedroa still says "Device is not ready".
For a long time, on my netbook Asus EEE pc1000 working fine with my wireless (connecting WEP, WPA). Running with kernel 2.6.29 + rta2860sta v2.2 (package downloaded from the software repository , a user repository)
After somes updates (kernel mainly), all stop working. So I recompile the module v2.2 but don't work. I download from the ralink site the last version , recompile and installed , and appear work fine, but I don't know why the opensuse like to be very annoying and the knetworkmanager don't recognize the device. So , again I download a package from a user repository with the version 2.3 , what appear starts working again. Knetworkmanager recognize the device, but isn't cappable to connect in a WEP network. With WPA works fine.
If I disable the device in knetworkmanager and try configure manually , sometimes work. Probably have some sequence of command what I don't figure out what is. To configure WEP network before this problems I always use only the "iwconfig" command. But I try with "iwconfig" and "iwpriv" and don't work. So , afiter trying a lot of sequence, now I got connected to WEP network, but is very weird how they show this connection,
My wireless card works most of the time, however with prolonged usage results in a temporary halt in functionality. I am not sure how to go about diagnosing or solving the problem, and I do not know what information I should be providing.
I can't pick up any wireless signals while running Ubuntu 10.04, but while running Windows 7, I pick them up. I have the feeling it's because of a missing driver, could anyone help me solve this issue?
In my college wireless ap have a login webpage that I must fill everytime i want to use internet.To automate the process i've written a bash script that do the login for me.I've found that scripts in the /etc/network/if-up.d directory should run after a connection is established, but the script isn't executed.This is the source of the script:
So I want to run a Minecraft Server on my computer running Ubuntu 11.04. My goal is to have the server running over my network through one of the virtual terminals without any type of GUI running (to conserve resources). I'm shutting down the ubuntu GUI using the command:
Code: sudo service gdm stop which does a great job, but it also kills my wireless connection.I've tried editing my /etc/network/interfaces, and even uninstalling the gnome network mananger, but nothing seems to work. Can anybody help?
I tried to do all the things I found online in aim installing the driver of my Broadcom 802.11 card, so I will have wireless in my UBUNTU 11.04. But I always get those messages (which appear in the end).

Recently I installed Ubuntu 10.04 in my Eee PC 1201n, dual boot with Win7. I got some error at booting, it says: nForce2_smbus 0000:00:03.2: Error probing SMB2. It not happened when I used 9.10, dual boot. After the error appearing, the system will stay still for around 20 seconds, then start to react to log in interface.Do any one meet the same problem,
I upgrade to 10.10 via online upgrade yesterday morning. All seems to run fine, and before the yesterday afternoon upgrade, compiz appears disabled and each time I try to enable it I get the error message.I checked the direct rendering is working. Google Earth works fine also, so all seems to be OK.
My system: Eee PC 1201n, Nvidia Ion, 4 Gb Ram, 320Gb HD
Im looking for kind of an applet for Ubuntu for switching between external and internal monitor of my netbook (Asus 1201n). Currently I can enter into NVIDIA X Server Settings and set up an external monitor without any problem, but this is kind of slow way of doing this comparing to the way I do it in Windows (pressing fn + f8 ) and I'm often when in my home plug-in into an external monitor. It looks like there is such an option in Jupiter (I'm using it for other function keys) but for my computer it always says that there is no external monitor detected (but function keys for switching are working ). Is there any other tool which could help me? It does not need to react on function keys, just choosing an option from tray would be enough for me. I'm new with linux and not so fancy about changing many things in text files, but when I had a good instructions how then I can do this.
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix for my new laptop. I've tried at great length to install the correct drivers to get my wireless up and running. I'm currently trying to install the Broadcom driver for my 802.11g wireless card. I have downloaded the headers and tools for ubuntu and am proceeding with the instructions given on [URL].
But when I get to these steps I come unstuck # mkdir hybrid_wl # cd hybrid_wl # tar xzf <path>/hybrid-portsrc.tar
I can make the directory and open it but when it comes to the third step I get a message saying that there is no such file or directory.
