Fedora Networking :: Wireless Slower To Connect After 15 Upgrade?
May 31, 2011
I've been using fedora on my Lenovo R61i since I got it...I believe the first version I used on this laptop was f10. I always try to keep it on the latest distro and I also enjoy a clean install every year or so. One thing I was always impressed with was how quickly I could go from sleep to back up and online. So I decided it was time for a clean install this weekend to fedora 15. Now when I wake it up (open the lid), it takes over a minute for the wifi to connect again. This hasn't been the case for the last 4 distro's so I'm wondering what I can do to speed that process back up, is there a particular package I can downgrade or is this something on their radar already and I should just wait for an upgrade?
"Dell 1525 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & external antenna" wireless card. It got recognized fine by FC12, but it was rather slow. I had read that life would be better in FC13 with the new kernel. After a long wait, I upgraded to FC13 yesterday.
It seems that the wireless is indeed faster. However, it it clearly a lot slower than under Windows 7 (it is a dual boot PC). My test is simply to play say Hulu in full screen: under Windows it looks fine, under FC13 it plays in slow motion.
What has changed to the wireless function and possibly the use of the ndiswrapper in 11.04.
I originally install ubuntu 9.10 and immediately upgraded to 10.04. I have just now decided to upgrade to 10.10 and then to 11.04. Everything went ok and all still worked fine up until the upgrade to 11.04.
I've checked my settings and they are fine. The power light is still on my wireless card but no connection?
My school has (once again) chosen to change their wireless network. This means it has gotten a lot slower, and that only our hotspot works. Our hotspot however is secured so that im unable to enter facebook, and a lot of other websites, etc. So what i did in windows was installing a program called hotspot shield, which redirects you ip through a server, so the LAN Admin basically have no control of what you're doing if he haven't got more skill than the one we have. I think what Hotspot shield does is making a vpn connection (correct me if im wrong) and i would certainly like to do that i ubuntu as well.
I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

I have just upgraded to FC 12 from FC 11 everything on FC 11 was fine, I has samba, openvpn, subversion, tinyproxy and apache all working fine. Friends could vpn in and do all the stuff they where allowed to do,
Now unfortunately I have this issue after upgrading to FC12, All the samba mounts have disappeared from all my friends computers, when I look at the log files I now see this;
smbd/server.c:457(smbd_open_one_socket) smbd_open_once_socket: open_socket_in: Address already in use
I installed Fedora 13 from the KDE live cd on it's own partition. My router was recognized and the networkmanager applet in the panel shows signal strength is nearly 100%. At boot, the networkmanager is in a constant state of "configuring connection" and the password window pops up three times. I click ok each time and then the icon changes to "network unavailable", that looks like an ethernet cable unplugged. Wired ethernet works fine. The rt2800 module is loaded for my wireless g/n card.
I just upgraded to Fedora 13 (from 10, using preupgrade), and I've gotten most things working again, but I'm still having trouble with the network.My wired connection (eth0) doesn't connect on boot (even though ONBOOT=yes in /usr/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0).Because of that, I figured I'd just leave eth0 connected manually (with ifup eth0). However, I then found that if I try to connect to a VPN like this, the system reverts to the "stalling every time I try to connect to the internet" problem that I had earlier.
I recently switched my mom from Windows to Fedora , and ever since her Internet speed went down. Now it takes, on average, 6-8 seconds longer for her to load a web page with Firefox. Tried to replace the modem -- didn't help. She is on a DSL connection.
But here is the striking part. Her BitTorrent speeds are better than mine, and I have a cable rather than DSL.
I can't for life imagine how these two can coexist. An innocent web page takes forever to load, and torrents are so fast. By the way, she does say that torrents used to be *even* faster on Windows.
I've just installed fedora 10 on my Dell Inspiron 1525, and I can't connect to my wireless net. I know how to manually enter the SSID (and have no clue what a BSSID is), MAC address, and I know it's infastructure (well, it's not ad-hoc, so it must be).
The problem is, my router uses a 64-bit encryption protocol, and there's no '64-bit' key option under Wireless Security's dropdown. Is there any way around this, aside from either changing the encryption protocol, or plugging it in manually (neither of which are options)?
I 'm using fedora 10 on my laptopI can connect to the wireless network at home where I use verizon router WEP Hex 64bit Open environment.on the campus the wireless is WPA2 , PEAP. I follow their guides here:and I have tried both methods , one is for fedora 8 , the other is for version 10. but with no luck at all.the wicd seems not even to try to connect; Network Manager tries to connect each time I let it; but every time fails
When I try to connect to any Wireless Networks in Fedora, the option at the top of the screen is grayed out. I can only connect to VPN, a hidden network, or create a new wireless network. My wireless works fine on the Vista side, so I am a bit confused at this
I have a question. I just bought an internet router which also has wireless connection and my notebook also has wireless LAN.I was able to connect the computer to the internet router very easy. But i dont know how to make it work wirelesss under fedora linux 12...i mean how should i setup the connection to the router so i will be able to have a wireless connection?
I am trying to connect to a wireless internet but can't. I previously used linux ubuntu and my wireless card worked. I am guessing that it should work with fedora then too. Is that correct? Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do to get the wireless internet working again on Fedora 12? Or what I should do to get usb wireless adapter to work.
I haven't been able to find anything really useful on google either. Was hoping you guys could point me somewhere or explain a process that might work. What I've tried so far is downloading the driver from ralink and trying to follow their procedure for getting it setup. Following the readme I get lost at step 3 and attempting to make it, I get:
[boardbox@niflheim ~]$ cd Desktop/2010_07_16_RT2860_Linux_STA_v220.127.116.11 [boardbox@niflheim 2010_07_16_RT2860_Linux_STA_v18.104.22.168]$ make make -C tools
but this hasn't fixed my problem either. I can see networks but I can't connect to anything, so kinda still stuck at square one.
EDIT: Turns out in frustration and absent-mindedness I didn't reboot and that fixed it.
I picked up a cheap PC the other day for �20 and it came with a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter. I know the adapter works because Windows XP was originally installed and I could connect with no problems. I wasn't able to connect when I installed Kubuntu so I thought I'd see if I could have any more luck with Fedora....so far, not so good! I realise that this is a fairly common problem, especially for this USB adapter, but I've tried dozens of threads here and elsewhere and still can't get Fedora online.I can see the wireless networks in the list, but if I try and connect then I just repeatedly get asked to enter the authentication details, which I know I'm providing correctly.
I have upgraded to Fedora 15 but cannot get wireless up and running. When i switch on wireless and choose the connection it tries for 15 seconds before prompting me for the password and continues like this. When i check the device in my network config it shows as being inactive. Ralink device 3060
I have a FC13 box that has both Gnome and KDE sessions installed.
I have noticed on the KDE session that data transfer rates are slower than when I use Gnome.
In Gnome, I can transfer files between my FC13 machine and my Ubuntu 10.04 pc at a rate of 6.5 MB/s (52 Mb/s if my maths is correct), but in KDE the rate is only 3.5 MB/s (28 Mb/s).
"ethtool eth0" shows my NIC speed as 100 Mb/s. Obviously I am not hitting anywhere near that speed in either session, (a separate article may be happen in the future to address that), but I am curious as to why KDE is that much slower for file transfer.
I have upgraded Intel Core2 Duo (Macbook Pro laptop) system to Fedora 15. I believe I have the proper firmware driver installed for my wireless network adapter. In Gnome I can click on the network status icon and select my wireless network, however nothing happens after that. Fedora does not prompt for my wireless network password, and no network connectivity is established. What can I do that would get my system to connect to the wireless network?
I need to direction here: my laptop (F10 gnome) is cat5 dhcp connected to a dlink 524 router with IP 192.168.150.1. This in turn is connected to an arris modem with ip 216... Local IP is 192.168.100.1 (default). It works, connects to internet, supplies dhcp address to dlink. All this is upstairs in my ham room upstairs. My wifes laptop downstairs usually connects wirelessly to the dlink, and hence to the arris. Also works to the internet. There is a linksys (ddwrt software) running as a wireless repeater also located downstair, with box ip 192.168.1.1.
It is "joined" to the dlink router via wireless, hence it function, wireless repeater. It works, I have used it like this many time. However, I cannot seem to get a connection to the Brother printer (which has a print server function). It is connected to the linksys repeater via a lan cable. Gets an ip via dhcp. I think it should work, since my wife can connect to the linksys repeater, either wireless or wired, and surf the internet thru the dlink router via the repeater-dlink wireless repeater link. I must be missing something obscure (to me, at least).
I tried Fedora 11 Live CD and if finds and I am able to connect to my wireless network imediately. But now when I have installed Fedora to the hard drive, I can see the wireless network, but when I press connect, it starts connecting, both dots become green but then it just says "Disconnected, the wireless network has been disconnected"
Basically, I just installed Fedora in my desktop (use it on my laptop), and have a big problem, which is that Fedora (13), detects my wireless card (Edimax nMAX EW-7728IN), but when I try to connect to my wireless networks (WEP & WPA) it hangs and asks again for the password. I know the problem isn't from my routers,since I'm right now connected via Fedora 13 in my laptop.
Am new, as of today to Fedora. I am unable to connect to my home wireless network. I have checked the security settings WPA PSK Personal TKIS, on the router. I have two windows PCs that are connected in this way.
The error message in Fedora 15 Network is Authentication required by wireless network. The details I have entered are correct, but no joy. Again, I am entirely new to Fedora
I upgraded from kernel-22.214.171.124-27.fc15.x86_64 to kernel-126.96.36.199-30.fc15.x86_64. After the upgrade I no longer have a wireless interface in Network Management. I have a broadcom BCM4312, booting the previous kernel solves this problem.
