Debian Configuration :: Wireless Does Not Reconnect

Oct 26, 2015

I have done a clean install of debian 8.2 (jessie) on a new PC. I am working through some of the issues that were not correctly installed. One of them is the wireless network. On startup, I have a wireless connection. At some point within the first 5-25 minutes of being logged in and doing computer stuff (there is no known action that leads to the reaction), the wireless disconnects from the network and will not reconnect. The network-manager-gnome shows three horizontal dots; the system settings> network shows all of the available networks, the strength of their signal, and the "connecting" circle spins. This behavior occurs with both WPA and insecure networks.

I have followed the guidelines for Debian>WiFi>HowToUse (https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse). Nothing appears amiss when following the Network-Manager>Gnome portion of the instructions. I was going to try the alternate WICD program, but one has to uninstall network-manager to use wicd and synaptic also wants to remove something called "gnome", too-- uninstalling a package with that name makes me uneasy. I have noticed that the installed versions of network-manager (0.9.10.0-7) and network-manager-gnome (0.9.10.0-2) don't exactly agree, but I doubt that that is significant.

Debian Configuration :: Unable To Reconnect 3G Connection After New IP Was Given

Sep 28, 2015

I use Debian Jessie 8.2 and I am using a 3G connection using this modem => [URL] ....

The 3G connection works fine, except after 24 hours the connection drops and I cannot reconnect. If I reboot the computer, the connection will work again.

My guess is that my ISP gives me a new IP address after 24 hours and somehow my system cannot handle it.

How can I reconnect my 3G connection without rebooting?

I have already tried the following commands:

Code: Select allsudo service network-manager restart

Code: Select alldhclient -r eth0
dhclient eth0

Code: Select allsystemctl restart ModemManager

Results of journalctl and grepping my connection name (SFR)

Code: Select allsept. 22 17:58:19 ark1 NetworkManager[512]: <info> Policy set 'SFR Web / Prepaid 1' (eth0) as default for IPv4 routing and DNS.
sept. 23 18:17:07 ark1 NetworkManager[9446]: <info> new connection /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/SFR Web * Prepaid 1
sept. 23 18:17:08 ark1 NetworkManager[9446]: <info> Auto-activating connection 'SFR Web / Prepaid 1'.

[Code] ....

As you can see sept 22 at time 17:58 is when the computer started up. And roughly 24 hours after it failed to reconnect.

Also I should mention that there is a script to run the command:

Code: Select allsudo service network-manager restart

if the computer cannot ping a server, ie if the connection is lost.

More journalctl info when the system tries to reconnect:

Code: Select allsept. 23 23:52:53 ark1 NetworkManager[9446]: <info> Auto-activating connection 'SFR'.
sept. 23 23:52:53 ark1 NetworkManager[9446]: <info> Activation (ttyUSB0) starting connection 'SFR'
sept. 23 23:52:53 ark1 NetworkManager[9446]: <info> Activation (ttyUSB0) Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled...
sept. 23 23:52:53 ark1 NetworkManager[9446]: <info> Activation (ttyUSB0) Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) started...

Debian Configuration :: The Network Doesn't Automatically Reconnect

Dec 9, 2010

I'm running squeeze testing. I have noticed an issue with the way NetworkManager acts when the wireless connection is dropped. I believe it should automatically reconnect but it immediately puts up a dialog requesting me to enter the wifi password. This dialog stays indefinitely until I intervene and click "OK" (the password from the previous successful connection is still there). I would think that something as basic as wireless networking should not require 24 hour human interaction to stay connected. I have considered a cron job checking the network status and restarting it if necessary, but there is a configuration change or something else I can do to resolve this.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Auto-reconnect Wifi When It Is Down?

Apr 10, 2010

I have my openSUSE 11.2 connected to router by wifi. I want frequently to access it from my LAN or even Internet, but even so frequent the connection is lost for some reason.

When I am at the box, I can easily do a ifdown/ifup and it will reconnect, but that is a pain when I am not local.

is there some way or maybe a script to check the connection so now and then and if not online then re-connects it automatic ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Won't Reconnect After Dropping?

May 26, 2011

I'm having a problem with the wireless on my Asus EEEPC 1000HE using Ubuntu 110.04. Digging into the laptop forums, it says there is a problem with wireless on some models of the 1000HE, but it is not the same wireless device and my wireless problem doesn't seem as bad as listed, so I think it's a different problem. But my problem is that if wireless drops for any reason, it will not start working again unless I either reboot the computer or click the wireless icon in the systray, click disconnect so it stops flashing (like it's trying to reconnect) and then suspend my computer or log off and back on. And it only does the latter because I added a file located at /etc/pm/config.d/00sleep_module with the one line that reads SUSPEND_MODULES="rt2800pci" (my wireless driver) So that one line seems to cause wireless to get a fresh connection after suspending (or something. I'm not a very advanced LInux user). I've tried running the command "sudo/etc/init.d/networking restart", but that does nothing for me. I'm not sure what other command to try to see if can fix it.[URL]

Networking :: Unable To Reconnect To Wireless AP Using The Same Settings?

Mar 3, 2010

Sometimes I am unable to reconnect to my wireless AP using the same settings that worked the previous day, and that has me stumped. I think it's due to me switching access points (using different authenticatin) since the last connection.

1) After I enter iwconfig/iwpriv commands to connect my wireless usb card (edimax) to my WPA2 network, what process performs the negotiation with the AP, and is there a way to see status debug messages from that process so that I can see if there was a successful negotiation? (so I can see if the password is correct, etc).

2) Is there a way to manually invoke that process to re-attempt to negotiate? Or must I assume that happens automatically with any iwconfig/iwpriv command?

3) Is there a simple command that will erase all iwconfig/iwpriv settings so that I can start over with my iwconfig/iwpriv commands?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Loses Connection Then Will Not Reconnect?

Mar 24, 2011

I am fairly new to linux. I have Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Inspiron E1705. While browsing my internet connection suddenly stops working. It says that I am still connected but the internet doesn't work. When I try to disconnect then reconnect it will not connect to the network. To get it to reconnect i have to turn of the wireless card, delete the connection then restart, turn the card back on and reconnect.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: 11.1 - WiFi Randomly Disconnects / Reconnect Automatically

Sep 6, 2010

I have a hp dv3 2110eg laptop with OpenSuse 11.1 (KDE 3.5.10) and Windows 7 dual boot. My wireless disconnects and connects automatically at random intervals. I do not observe this behaviour when operating my laptop under Windows 7. Following some suggestions given in this forum , I uninstalled networkmanager and installed wicd. However, this does not seem to solve the problem. Given below are the relevant information.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Randomly Drops Connection And Refuses To Reconnect?

Mar 23, 2010

my wireless will connect to a well known connection but will sometimes drop the connection then tries to reconnect. Sometimes it will reconnect w/o a problem but most times it will fail and when it fails it will refuse to even recognize that same wireless connection.

If by a small chance it does recognize the network then when you click on it, it will ask you again for the password, which is already saved onto the computer. After entering the password it will try to reconnect, then fail.

Only solution is to reboot.

I was wondering if there was an easy temporary fix of just reloading the software that controls the wireless.Such as, my audio doesn't work when I boot. I need to reload the ALSA driver using sudo /sbin/alsa force-reload

Is there something specific to the wireless that I can force-reload and it will start working w/o having me reboot my PC?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Auto Reconnect After Power Savings Mode?

Aug 17, 2011

I am running a version of Ubuntu 10.4 with XFCE loaded (actually Qimo, a distribution for kids). I am using a pci wireless card with a broadcom 43XX chipset and WPA2 authentication using the Broadcom STA driver. In an account with privileges I set the auto eth1 (which is what my wireless card comes up as) to connect automatically, and make available to other users.

When I switch to the kid's account, the wireless connects just fine. Then, if the computer is not used for a period of time, the powersavings mode kicks in. When the computer is woken up, the wireless connection does not attempt to reconnect. If you right click on the networking icon it doesn't even show any available connections, even though it can be found by clicking edit connections. The only way I can get it to reconnect is to restart the machine (I will admit that I did not try to restart the networking service, I will try that tonight).

Any ideas? This has been driving me nuts for a few days now. The users during the day are non technical and can't deal with these kind of issues. I can post more details about the setup (as recommended by the sticky post) tonight. I am at work at the moment and can't get to the machine from here - because it has removed itself from the network again.

Debian :: Bluetooth Keyboard Reconnect

Jun 1, 2015

On my Raspberry (I know but I could not get any response in raspberry-forums) running raspian I have a problem with a bluetooth-keyboard.

It has bluez 4.99-2 installed and I was able to pair the keyboard and make it trusted and when I run "bluez-test-input connect <address>" I can use it as an input device, but the problem is that when the keyboard goes into a standby-mode after some inactivity the connection is lost and not reestablished. To make it work again I have to run the bluez-test-input command again.

Now when I use the keyboard on my Android-device it also goes into standby but as soon as I start to type again it automatically reestablishes the connection - this is what I would like to achieve on the Rasperry.

My fundamental problem is that I don't know anything about bluetooth really...

I assume that on Android the keyboard initiates a connection when it comes back from sleep but on Raspbian the connection is initiated from the Pi and when the connection is lost the keyboard may try to reconnect but maybe there is no "bluetooth-server" on the Pi to accept the connection but that is just guesswork from someone that really has no clue...

Debian Configuration :: Iwlwifi - No Wireless Internet

I'm a new Debian user but I've been around Linux for awhile. I wanted to try Debian because I wanted something stable and that I could set up myself from a minimal install. However, I'm having issues with my WiFi connection. I'm running KDE and connected to the network, but I can't access any webpages or ping, for example, google.com. I know the network is working because I'm connected to it on my phone and my wife's Macbook. Here's the output of lspci:

Debian Configuration :: How To Get Wireless Card To Work

Jan 21, 2010

I'm having trouble getting my wireless card (RNX-G300LX, from Rosewill) working with my Debian install. I had it working at one point in time, but (apparently) something has gone wrong, as it no longer connects. The network I'm trying to connect to uses WPA2. When I try to start up my wireless card as follows:
# ifup wlan0

I get the following response:
wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801
wmaster0: unkown hardware address type 801
Listening on LPF/wlan0/00:1a:...

I have set up /etc/network/interfaces as follows:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
auto wlan0
and /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
ssid="apt_102"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="mypassword"
proto=WPA2 }

I should also note that running wpa_cli -i wlan0 tells me that it is "trying to associate" with my router, but authentication times out each time.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Only For Main User?

Mar 24, 2010

I don't exactly know what happened but for some reason only the main user has access now to the networkmanager and is able to connect to internet. If I switch to another user, the networkmanager reports no connectivity and the PCMCIA card dies. Does anyone know what to do? It seems like an access feature, related to permissions or something.

I checked but the user is added to the netdev group...

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Iface Cannot Be Reached From Other PC

Apr 14, 2010

I have very strange problem with kernels 2.6.33 and 2.6.34. I have a wireless card Linksys WMP200 using rt61pci. It connects just fine using WPA2 and works, but in less than 20 minutes I still can reach any machine on my network, but this machine cannot be reached by the others (i.e. before these 20 minutes others can ping me). With default kernel 2.6.26 (Lenny) all is OK. I do not use any firewall. When this happens logs do not change - wpa_supplicant's log is normal (associated), syslog is fine, dmesg shows no errors. Sofar I have tried this:

1. acpi=off as boot parameter
2. both new kernels 2.6.33 and 2.6.34 are compiled with CONFIG_CF80211_DEFAULT_PS disabled
3. iwconfig wlan0 power off
4. Tried ndiswrapper. The device is up and scans fine but wpa2 is not working...
5. Compiled a kernel without ACPI

This is all I did without any luck and I really need the new kernels because I have a quatech device attached to the machine...

Debian Configuration :: Can't Connect To Hidden Wireless

Jul 9, 2010

Finally took the plunge and decided to give debian a go, not done so before as feared it would be too complicated. Net install went ok. Used to wiki to get me wireless up and running by copying those commands provided most of which made no sense (why the separate kernel image for wireless?).

Anyway seems to have worked so now to the problem I can't connect to my wireless network its not broadcasting so configured it manually the way I do in ubuntu through the net manager, it doesn't connect at all.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Not Working With Sid And New Device?

Dec 8, 2010

The computer networking works fine with a normal static setup, but adding a USB wireless device is not successful. It is my own network so the wpa-ssid and wpa-psk are known to work with Lenny and a previous wireless device.The device is recognized (lsusb) and the driver is confirmed to be in the kernel (lsmod). Here is the iwconfig output:

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off
Power Management:off

After typing: ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.144 up I can ping that address, but it is not working. I have just done a fresh install of Sid so that I could get the 2.6.35 kernel which contains the ath9k_htc driver for the USB wireless device that I am using. The firmware is ar9271.fw but my source of that is questionable because it does not seem readily available. I am temporarily using a PCMCIA wired connection which is what I am using to connect to the computer via telnet. (This is just for convenience so as to avoid getting up all the time.) Here is the ifconfig output:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:05:07:d9:11
inet addr:192.168.1.122 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::240:5ff:fe07:d911/64 Scope:Link

[code]...

That file works with the previous USB wireless device under Lenny. Am I doing something wrong or is the driver and firmware just not up to snuff yet?

Debian Configuration :: Installing Wireless From Disk?

Dec 17, 2010

How can I load packages from the cd? I installed from cd1 which I burned on a desktop, then installed Lenny onto a laptop. Works great, no problems except I have no way of connecting the laptop other than wireless.
I've found the network manager package on the cd, but don't have a clue how to install it. I really need to get the wireless working so I can install package manager, wi-fi radar and some other things. I tried putting the disk back in and thought rescue mode might bring me back to where I could select the individual packages I need, but that didn't work, it just wanted to go through another install. Thought there was a way to select individual packages and add them to the installation.

Debian Configuration :: Disable Wireless At Startup?

Dec 22, 2010

I've been using Debian since the early days of Lenny being testing as OS on the same Computer. Its a Acer Aspire Notebook with switches for wireless and bluetooth. While booting Lenny my wireless and bluetooth stayed off as long as I didn't switch them on. But since squeeze they get activated ( you can see it by looking at the LED's ) the moment after the grub screen. I now do have to turn bluetooth and wireless off by hand everytime which is quite annoying since I mostly use eth0.

how to disable bluetooth and wireless per default in a way I can simply turn them back on by using the switch?

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Not Working On Squeeze?

Feb 14, 2011

I am moving over to debian from ubuntu, and the latest install is to an acer aspire one netbook, the wireless card seems to be working and I can see available networks and even connect to mine (with WPA encryption) via the gnome network manager, however opening a browser or pinging both local and external machines all fail. its as if the OS does not not know to use the card. The wired works fine.

If memory serves the card is identified by lspci as Atheros AR5007.

There is no reference to wlan0 in etc/network/interfaces.

I do not have that system on now and have to leave for work, but I can post any further info from conf files etc as required when i get home tonight... Just thought I'd post a quick description in case I'm missing something obvious...

Debian Configuration :: What To Reinstall To Setup Wireless

Feb 27, 2011

I'm new here, I hope someone can help me get wireless working on my laptop. This is a Toshiba Satellite Pro C650-EZ1533 (Intel Core i3). The Toshiba site says it has "Atheros Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n)", but does not identify the hardware more specifically.

I installed Debian 6.0 from a netinstall disc, the version including nonfree hardware drivers. In the software selection I went with the defaults: only "Desktop environment", "Laptop" and "Basic system".

Now the GUI looks nice and behaves OK, and the audio, video, ethernet, and optical drive are working. However, I don't know how to configure wireless. It's probably my fault. I was installing and uninstalling file managers, trying to find one I would like better than Nautilus. When I went to uninstall one of them, a message in the package manager recommended using a command like "auto remove" or similar (I did not record it exactly). My understanding at the time was that this would only remove things that were installed because of dependencies but were no longer needed. However, *a lot* of things disappeard from the menus.

Now the only thing about networking in the menus is something about setting up a proxy. There should be some sort of network manager, right? Or an icon on the taskbar, maybe? But I don't know what package to install.
