Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire One Drops Wlan Connections After 10 Minutes?
Nov 16, 2010
I have an Acer Aspire One 110 with Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition, after i upgraded to 10.10 the wireless network connection is lost about 10 minutes after login, and I can't get it back without rebooting.
My laptop is the one mentioned in the title. And it's completely offline at the moment.
Code: $iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. Seem to have some troublesome chips. Code: $ lspci 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0) 05:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01) code....
although in my case they should be for the 184.108.40.206-85.fc13.x86_64 kernel.
And I've been searching that repo for ages now, and I can't seem to find anything with kmod-wl or broadcom in there. I'm well aware that this is most likely because of my own ignorance as to the build up of said repo.
Having struggled to get the wireless connection at least working I find it drops out after 15 minutes or so. When I check for wireless connections I can see none at all and the "Disable/Enable wireless conncection" has disappeared, the Network one is still there. I get an auto reconnection if I reboot and all is well for another 15 minutes. Is there any way i can recover the situation without a reboot? I am trying to install the hplip-3.11.5 driver for my new wireless printer,the program take a while to install and by the time it has started looking for the printer the connection has dropped out. I can't be sure but I don't think it was dropping out before I connected the printer using my wired pc. All good fun but I'd like to get it sorted so I can get the engine back in my motorbike, the sort of technology I prefer!
I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5. 160GB HD, 1GB RAM model. I've done a fresh install and an upgrade of 10.04 and have the same problem both ways. I am able to connect to my wireless connection but it is dropped after about 5 minutes and have to wait about the same time to reconnect. I've had to roll back to 9.10 being that I use the netbook for work and school on a daily basis.
On every machine that SSHes in, the connection gets dropped randomly between immediately, and 30 minutes into the session, while the user is actively using the remote system (typing, etc). Before, during and after the disconnection, the system responds to pings regularly (0% packet loss).It takes about 5-10 minutes before I can make an SSH connection again.I have tried restarting SSH on the server and rebooting the server. I even removed and reinstalled sshd and it is still happening.What might be causing these random disconnects and how might I solve this?
I have a Dell 1545 laptop with ubuntu 9.1 32-bit installed (the 64-bit had a bug with the wireless drivers which is why I have not used it). Initially, the laptop worked well with the wireless (a sky router with WPA security) but now, the wireless signal drops after a couple of minutes of usage. I have to reboot the laptop or sometimes reboot the router as well to regain the wireless signal. I am using the Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver.
I have an older dell inspiron 6400 as well with the same OS and driver and it works perfectly without any problems for hours / days.
I installed Fedora 14 yesterday via the installation DVD with 3,3 GB. Everything worked fine and when I connected to my wlan and entered the WEP key I got access to the internet. But after about 5 minutes, to connection just got cut and I was again asked for the WEP passkey. But when I entered it this time, the connection failed and I was just asked again (with the same key entered, it even got it saved from last time). As you can think, this is quite annoying, since the time I have internet is not even enough to get some updates done.
Ah, and by the way: The time I have internet it just is unbelievably slow. On my Windows partation, I don't have this problem. I do have a small hint what might be the problem: When I was using Ubuntu, I always had a similar problem, but it did not even connect to my wlan once. The solution was to blacklist some driver, but since I don't know if this might be the problem on Fedora too and if the drivers are the same as on Ubuntu and since I really have no idea about the syntax of the terminal here, I was not daring to try this out.
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.4 as a dual boot on my Acer Aspire 0ne 533. I have to keep the Windows partition for work, or I'd have just installed Ubuntu. I'm used to plugging in an ethernet cable for the first round of updates until I get the WiFi working, but it just isn't working for me this time. I have a horrid feeling that Windows has a way of hogging the Ethernet card.
I had a look in the forums, and could not find anything referring to this specifically, which is unusual because as far as I can tell the AA1 is a popular machine and lots of people dual boot it. Perhaps it is an easy fix that's been buried in the archives?
Maybe they made a change without changing the model number? I have an Acer aspire 5517 bought last Friday, and with Ubuntu 9.10 the wired network came up fine, I upgraded with latest fixes today, but it stil doesn't recognise the wireless interface at all, not "network connections" window, not "ifconfig -a".
after finally getting this machine tot run with ubuntu i am now on an ethernet connection because all of a sudden, my wireless says its disabled. When iwconfig is entered, it shows my wlan 0 but says power management : off. It is so frustrating because I feel like there should just be a button that says to switch it on haha. Please help, my wifi was working, and after a boot it is no longer.
This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.
While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.
I searched everything before posting this, and tried every solution, but so far no luck, i will post my info, and hope someone smarter then me can solve this? Wireless works fine in windows, but apears disabled in ubuntu lspci -nn

the laptop has no bluetooth chip, so i am not sure where "acer-bluetooth" is coming from. Also i am quite familar with linux, so no need to hold my hand, i am just not sure what to do next in this situation. (if this makes solving this easier)
PS: There is no 'hardware switch' on the laptop, but there is a Fn+F3 key combination which does nothing. network-manager shows on startup 'Enable wireless' with no check next to it, checking it 'Enables' it, but the wireless remains disabled.
I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.
I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5, which is running (Desktop Version) 10.04. I've been happily using the built in wifi adapter, but now I've got a new wireless hub that supports 802.11n and I want to exploit the higher connection speed. I've bought a wireless usb that has no external markings, however, using 'lsusb' I've managed to establish it contains ralink 3070. Any ideas how I get this to work? When I plug in the wireless dongle from another laptop I get two connections available for use in network manager, but when I plug this one in nothing seems to happen.
I have an Acer Aspire One 1551 netbook. After I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix (my first Ubuntu, though), I discovered that wi-fi device isn't being recognized - ifconfig says that I only have ethernet device present.Somehow rfkill list indicates, that acer-wireless is always blocked. How to unblock it? rfkill unblock 0 doesn't resolve the issue - device is still blocked.somehow 'Fn+WiFi' combination on keyboard activates/deactivates Bluetooth instead of WiFi. Can I alter the behavior of the combination to turn on/off wireless networking? I googled for a while but fruitlessly. Is it a known problem? Is there a workaround for it already? Is there any additional information (clues) I can provide to speedup the process a bit?
Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.
(For the record, I have already read the other threads. Either they don't work for me or are too difficult.) My laptop is an Acer TravelMate 250. I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-28 generic i686) after erasing Windows 7. At first, the usb wireless adapter worked. Then, I restarted the PC because of some updates and it didn't work anymore. In "edit connections" I find "Auto SpeedTouch8350DB" which is the wireless connection (on my sis's computer it works). When it tries to connect, I'm asked the password but it doesn't work.
Aspire One D250 wlan/ethernet not working on centos 5.4i have tried alot, searchingon net to findout the both lan card drivers for my new aspire one d250 but coudn't find out. Please help me in finding and installing the drivers. infact i have seen alot people searching for the same but no one has successfully installed any of the lan.
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Acer 5024wlmi and followed this guide from Ubuntu community to enable my Broadcom AirForceOne BCM4318 wifi card.Now the wireless adapter is on (laptop front led also is on), I can see active wifi networks but connection fails (even with a simple ad-hoc open wifi network!). I tried with Network Manager/WICD/Wifi Radar and also using terminal lfconfig/lwconfig commands without success. It seems that my wifi card cannot ping access points: for example see this log from WICD connection session:
It's a Acer Aspire 4520 Laptop running Vista Ultimate. All Drivers are working fine except Wireless. No wireless adapter is shown in Device Manager. Acer website was no help at all, has the drivers but no adapters for download. This laptop shows that it has Acer signalUp, also shows 802.11b/g WLAN on the sticker. I've downloaded Athero AR??? wireless driver, did not do anything to help the problem, downloaded the broadcom one also and it did nothing. Works fine on the LAN cable but no wireless.
I can't get my wireless card to work. I downloaded a broadcom driver for it and i do believe its the right one, but its not helped. I'm running mint 8. The information on my internal wireless card i got using the terminal is:
lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 760/M760 Host (rev 03) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SG86C202 00:02.0 ISA bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS963 [MuTIOL Media IO] (rev 25) 00:02.1 SMBus: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS961/2 SMBus Controller 00:02.5 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5513 [IDE] [Code]....
I'm running Kubuntu and Windows on the same machine but when I swap over to Kubuntu I can't get the wireless to work. The lshw command returns network disabled but the machine can see that there is a wlan0 connection.
I've been trying to install the broadcom Linux driver from their site but the instructions fall apart at step 3: cd bnx...version/ ( directory just created by tar). I'm guessing this is because I don't have a Live CD (after almost a week of trying to burn a disc I just broke down and got Wubi) but that doesn't change the fact I have no idea what to do now or if this will even work.
If it makes any difference, the wired connection will also occasionally die mysteriously after about 30-60 minutes of use and refuse to re-activate but work fine when I switch over to Windows or just plug it into the router.
