Debian Configuration :: USB Wifi Adapter Frequently Disconnecting

May 20, 2015

Using a USB ISO, I recently installed Debian 8.0 Jessie (64-bit, Xfce DE) to a new computer. I usually lose my Wifi connection after 1-3 minutes when donwloading/uploading at around max. speed 4 Mbps/512 kbps. Sometimes it will last 15+ minutes.

When lightly browsing it can usually stay connected for 15-30 minutes. I have to disable and enable Wifi using NetworkManager to connect again. If I remember correctly, there were problems with the Wifi connection even during the installation of Debian.

This Wifi USB adapter works fine on my old computer with Debian 7.7 (32-bit). No problems with the Wifi connection yesterday on my old computer during 10+ hours of activity.

This Wifi adapter also works fine on this new computer when I boot from a live USB (Rescatux 0.30.2) downloading and uploading at max. speed for 1+ hour.

I already tried some suggestions I found online, but they didn't work:

* changing Wifi channels between 1, 6, 11 in my router settings
* changing WPA-WPA2 to WPA2 in my router settings
* ignore IPv6 in NetworkManager
* change probe_wait_ms from 500 ms to higher value by adding Code: Select alloptions mac80211  probe_wait_ms=1000 or Code: Select alloptions mac80211  probe_wait_ms=3000 to /etc/modprobe.d/mac80211.conf and rebooting
* disable Power Management for Wifi adapter (not supported)
* ...

I can also post the output of commands from Rescatux or my old computer if needed.

Output of commands on Debian 8.0 64-bit (I edited out some info, MAC, ...; not sure if that is important):

Code: Select alluname -a

Debian Configuration :: Wifi "disabled By State File" After Suspend

Mar 8, 2010

Using Squeeze, I wanted to get KMS + DRI2 and suspend/hibernate working with my radeon card using the Open source driver (my card: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M IGP (5955) PCIE (RC410) is no longer supported by the ATI/AMD proprietary driver). I know my card has problems with suspend/hibernate in User modesetting and from what I've read [URL] it has been solved for some only using KMS.

I followed this instructions by the Debian maintainer:[URL] Of course in reality the available version in experimental is now 6.12.191, and mesa 7.7 and libdrm-radeon1 are already in testing. Therefore I only had to get xserver-xorg-video-radeon from experimental and switch KMS on. It worked ok , except that when I tried to hibernate, it didn't even go into hibernate mode!...the screen went blank and the wireless led shut off, but the fan was running and the keyboard lights were on...

Aside from that I also got the following disquieting messages:

[drm:rs400_gart_adjust_size] *ERROR* Forcing to 32M GART size (because of ASIC bug ?)
radeon 0000:01:05.0: Wait MC idle timeout before updating MC
Failed to wait MC idle while programming pipes. Bad things might happen.

Debian :: Best PCI Or USB Wifi Adapter To Use?

Jan 7, 2011

I have another thread started [URL] asking for support on configuring a Netopia TER/GUSB-N USB Wireless Adapter. But, I figured it would be interesting to get some opinions about other wireless adapters. I don't mind shopping on eBay for a new adapter or purchasing one at Walmart or BestBuy. So basically, I wanted to find out which wireless adapters are guaranteed to work out of the box after installing Debian. I am setting up webcam servers throughout my house and want to use the same hardware as much as possible. So if anyone has any recommendations on a wireless adapter that is proven to work and work well, please let me know.

Here are three that I can get pretty cheap at Walmart: Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless USB Network AdapterNetgear WG111 Wireless-G 54Mbps USB 2.0 AdapterCisco - Valet Connector (Wireless N USB Adapter) AM10-4A

Debian Hardware :: USB WiFi Adapter Failed

Oct 2, 2015

I bought this wifi adapter to use with my home server running debian Wheezy [URL] ....

I installed realtek-firmware and wireless-tools(including NetworkManager and wpasupplicant). I rebooting and plugged in the wireless adapter and it didn't load the driver. After further research, I found that this adapter required the RTL8188EU driver, which I had to install manually. After manually installing that driver using the source from the iwfinger github [URL] .... and rebooting, I plugged in the wireless adapter and it worked. The wireless adapter seemed to work but after testing it under load(downloading a several GB file from the server and uploading a several GB file to the server) I ran into issues during the tests. I'm not sure what is going on but it seems the driver is failing or it is disconnecting from the network. I checked dmesg and this is what I found,

Code: Select all[ 5478.544704] RTL871X: reg 0x80, usb read 4 fail, status:-71 value=0x0, vendorreq_times:1
[ 5478.544707] RTL871X: reg 0x80, usb read 4 fail, status:-19 value=0x0, vendorreq_times:2

I'm somewhat new to Debian and I'm not sure what else to do here.

Debian Hardware :: Cut Power To WiFi Adapter On Startup?

Aug 26, 2015

I dual-boot Jessie with Windows 10, and I recently guessed that the 'fast boot' (hibernate on shutdown) feature of Windows doesn't properly shut down the RTL8188EU NIC plugged into my PC. So when I boot into Debian, it isn't properly recognised by the driver and I have to completely shut down the PC to make it work.

Is there a way to automatically cut the power to the wireless NIC on startup and then reenable it so I don't have to do this?

Debian Hardware :: Ralink USB WiFi Adapter Not Working After System Reinstall

Jul 12, 2014

I just did a Wheezy reinstall (I just started using LVM on LUKS), but my Ralink RT5370 usb wireless adapter wouldn't work, even though I have firmware-ralink installed. When I click on the Network Manager icon, it lists my home network (WPA2 passphrase) as available, but clicking on it yields no result.

Before the system reinstall, I've been using the adapter with firmware-ralink without problems. As far as "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" goes, my system is up-to-date.

I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling firmware-ralink (rebooted too), but to no avail. The adapter seems to be undamaged.

Here are a few pieces of info that might be useful:

Code: Select all$ uname -a
Linux watershed 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Code: Select all# lsusb

Debian Hardware :: Ralink RT2501 USB WiFi Adapter Hot And Noisy - Wheezy Freezes

Sep 14, 2014

I've just installed Debian Wheezy on my old Toshiba Satellite A10 (Intel celeron 2.20 GHz, 1GB Ram, 30 GB hard drive) and tried to connect to my home wifi network with a usb wifi adapter (Hamlet HNWU254G). lsusb in terminal says it is Ralink RT2501. Ethernet worked fine, so I installed firmware-ralink package, the adapter was recognized and I was able to connect.

However, I heard quite frequently a strange whistle and realized it came from the usb wifi adapter; it also got very very hot. Other strange thing: the computer some times freezes: screen flickering, loss of control of mouse and keyboard, need to shut down with power button.

At first I thought it was the video card not being powerful enough for Gnome (even classic), but then I installed Xfce4 and nothing changed. Instead, when working offline, freezes happen less frequently (but still happen).

I've tried the usb adapter on another laptop with wheezy: it gets hot, but there are no whistles and freezes.

Debian Configuration :: Services That Can Be Safely Disabled With Systemctl

Jul 22, 2015

Have been working most of the day on this usb full install (Jesiie xfce) trying to make it leaner/faster and trying to get rid of minor annoyances like "watchdog: watchdog0 is not shutting down" (couldn't btw), finally managed to disable "You have mail" by commenting out "session optional pam_ mail.so standard" in /etc/pam.d/login. Every little change registers in terms of seconds of boot time saved and how the system responds because, well, i'm booting from a usb 2 drive.Followed some suggestions from "Reduce Debian", removed cups-common, some foreign language locales and man pages. what i can safely do with systemctl.

Debian Configuration :: Building (Wireless Adapter) Driver From Source

If I plug in a cheap USB adapter, I'm able to connect and use the devices.My computer is a HP ProBook 4330s running Debian Jessie. And as far as I can tell the Bluetooth adapter is a Ralink rt3592 combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth PCI card. The Wi-Fi works fine, but when i try to connect to a Bluetooth device, I get no search results.

Debian Configuration :: Unstable Internet Connection Squeeze - Realtek Adapter

Jul 14, 2011

I'm going to start using Debian as my desktop system rather than Ubuntu since I'm not really liking all the crazy eye candy and just wanted a fast and simple system. My main problem is networking, I guess I'll start off with my system specs and other information for problem solving.

My specs are:

- Intel Core i7 2600K CPU
- Gigabyte Z68X-UD3P-B3 Motherboard
- 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz RAM

I have a Realtek RTL8111/8168B Ethernet Adapter builtin to my motherboad which I am using, I could only get a basic connection, by basic I mean that it allowed me to connect to my local area network but not the internet. I then modified /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf to change to managed=true this allowed me to use the internet, but the problem is, that it is a very unstable connection, the speed is very slow and it drops a lot! I have to carry on running /etc/init.d/network-manager restart twice to get my connection back, which lasts for about a minute.

Debian Configuration :: How To Connect Wifi From CLI

Jan 7, 2014

I did a netinstall earlier today (latest version, amd64) on my Dell XPS laptop and ended up with a minimal installation because I couldn't connect to the internet. Now I'm trying to get online without a desktop environment.

I have an Intel Centrino 1030, so I downloaded and installed the firmware [URL].... with a usb, then rebooted. My searches have turned up a lot of instructions involving a utility called iwconfig and wpasuppliant, but these are apparently not installed. I don't really know much about it, but my /etc/network/interfaces file looks rather empty:

Code: Select all# The loopback interface
 auto lo
 iface lo inet loopback

Shouldn't there be something like wlan0 there? The network card does show up with lspci

Debian Installation :: 7.4 - WiFi Configuration Fails

Apr 8, 2014

I've been installing multiple versions of ubunutu over years and now I better understand why I faced always problems with wifi configuration on these different baselines : Debian root of course.

Now on Debian 7.4 :
The Broadcom BCM4313 driver is not loaded by default (not free product) for my wifi card. This is stated thru the UNCLAIMED declaration

Code: Select all 
sudo lshw -c network
 *-network UNCLAIMED
       description: Network controller
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ...

Unclaimed means : no driver found (no kernel association)

So I installed the driver located in the non-free backports by adding this target into the repository

Code: Select alldeb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

and install :

Code: Select allsudo apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-brcm80211
sudo modprobe brcm80211

Check seems OK :

Code: Select allsudo lshw -c network

  *-network
       description: Wireless interface
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ....

I can't connect with wlan0, it doesn't work. I found information here regarding WPA2/PSK wifi configuration on debian : [URL] ....

so I added this setup to my interfaces file an got :

Code: Select allauto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 wpa-ssid Hznteam-Datacenter
 # hexadecimal psk is encoded from a plaintext passphrase
 wpa-psk 12345678901234567890123456

It's worth ! no more wifi network are detected and ifconfig gives no ip address allocated :

Code: Select allwlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 78:e4:00:4e:49:a3 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Not Working On HP Omen 15

Apr 17, 2016

I am new to linux and decided to use Debian. I installed it on my laptop and have a few problems.First one is my WIFI.

Laptop type: HP Omen 15
Wifi adapter: Intel Wireless 7260n
rfkill list output:0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
So wifi is not displaying
Kernel: 3.16.0-4-amd64
Debian version: 8.4
gui: LXDE
URL....

But they see in rfkill list the adapter.How to make this adapter work?I did this with no result:

nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
in file add:
#Fixing a bug that prevents wifi from working on HP Omen
blacklist acer_wmi

I would like to learn more about Linux, but before experimenting I need a working system. The plan for me is to run this as my native machine with vms on top of it with other OS.

wireless automatically connects to my home wireless network (linksysn). But suppose I wanted to take this laptop to the coffee house where they have free wifi. I am assuming that my wireless will not automatically connect to any other wifi hotspot except linksysn. So how do i set it up to roam like NM did?
