A lot of people have the problem to find themselves with Lucid Lynx 10.04 and experience massive issues when connecting to wireless - me too. As a service, here some relevant links which promise relief:
I tried all of them, and none reliably worked. Every solution which required re-association wtih the AP helped for some time, but nothing helped for long. First, don't let yourself fool by the disable IPv6 trap - while it is "enabled" it is acutally not used by Lucid! I have a clean install of Kubuntu 10.04 on an AMD64 Laptop with Broadcom STA driver: 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03) However I can reliably stabilize my connection for some time either by manually disabling WiFi with the hardware switch or disabling WiFi by software means and re-activating. This brings speed at par with Kubuntu 9.10 until some time. Can anybody confirm this behaviour?
I have a strange problem that I cannot diagnose -- slow wifi. About two or three weeks ago, I noticed that my wifi began to slow down dramatically. The problem is the same on my ubuntu laptop and my ipad. But when I connect directly to the router with a network cable, my connection is fine. So it is definitely a problem with the wifi signal itself.
What I have done so far: (1) I checked all of the MAC addresses connected to my wifi. I identified my tivo box, laptop, and ipad. Nothing else.
(2) I used [I]wifi analyzer[I] on my android phone and selected an unused wifi channel (channel 8).
(3) I changed the username/password on my wifi signal. I also changed the password for my router's admin privileges.
(4) I restarted my router and computer. None of this helped.

My wireless seems to be fast for a good 30secs then bang takes good while to load the next page almost as if it's disconnecting and then reconnecting/scanning reconnecting. Why cant it stay connected. I have WAP PSK security here is my network setting please let me know if I should change any of them:(side not is there a way to fix this problem occuring so frequently it says on the wiki that it should only occur once in a whilce https:[url].....
I've been testing with the SoundConverter software and I want to write a script for it.Most music files on my pc are *.flac. But I want to convert some albums to my mp3 player with a script. Everything works fine. I do this:Code:soundconverter -b -m audio/mpeg -s .mp3 *.flacBut the quality is 128kbps.Is there any way to change the bitrate (in the terminal ofcourse)?And if this is not possible, is there an alternative that copies the tags correct like SoundConverter?
I really need to burn my 64 kbps uncompressed A-Law PCM file to Audio CD uncompressed as is and make this 8 hour file appear on CD Players. What app does it for me? It must fit on CD! Goldwave makes a-law / u-law wav files BTW. I can do this with linux or windows with any application. tell me how or where to download. I have the wav files already.
I've just installed the ubuntu 9.10. I have one problem with it. I have a home net in configuration: Windows XP on a cable, Ubuntu on a cable and Windows on wifi. When I'm surfing on the net on Ubuntu, Wifi isn't work how it should. It's very slow and I don't know what to do with it. Windows XP on a cable is OK, it works good. What happen and how can I repair it?
i installed Ubuntu 11.04 Amd64 today (and have tried ubuntu 10.10 in the past and had the exact same issue.).I had this problem with the wifi, as it recognizes the adaptor (tplink321g) but it cant connect to the right speed. This is my only problem with ubuntu now.If anybody else is having the same issue, and most of all if anybody has the solution to it.
I have an old PowerBook G4 that I would like to use as a 'dummy' computer for learning wireless penetration (WEP/WPA attacks) more effectively. I had been using a wireless router, but I gave it away I can use Mac OS X to share an ethernet connection over wifi, but this is _very_ un-configurable. You get two options only, WEP and a key-length. So, I would like to install someway to make this wireless connection more configurable.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 and I'm having problems with internet speeds on wifi. I have tried the two available networks on my university campus and both of them are very slow with 10.04. I'm not having problems with Windows 7 running on these networks. Although, the wired network works perfectly fine, with normal speeds. I've looked around for help but I could not find anything specific to this problem.
The web navigation is very very slowly. The load of web page is slowly. I don't know what i do. I connect with wifi. the download with software same emule is good. I use firefox but i tried also other browser.
just installed Ubuntu on my Macbook Pro and im loving it right now, but whenever I disconnect from the power source and run from battery, my wifi Internet slows down to a crawl. As soon as i plug the power back in, the internet is back to normal.
I was introduced to Ubuntu about a year ago and recently decided to come back to using the OS. I now dual boot it with Windows XP Home. My former setup was with Wubi but now I have it installed on an actual partition. (The Wubi install, for whatever reason, had little internet problems.) I use wireless internet, and though my network card was recognized out of the box and can connect to my network, the Internet is very slow. It takes almost a minute to look up Google. Also, Firefox will often report that it cannot find the server for whatever website I try to look up, after trying to connect to it/look it up. I also cannot access the web configuration page for my router. (192.168.1.1). The network app reports that I often have a signal strength of 40% or lower. The following is my hardware/internet:
Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty TrendNet TEW-424UB adapter (54mbps) Westell VersaLink 327W router ISP: CenturyTel/CenturyLink High speed internet (512kbps)
I am the only Linux computer on my network. (There is no encryption on my network. I know there should be. but my parents are not very computer literate and they are the ones who have access to the network. It is easier just to go without.)
I have tried disabling ipv6, setting custom DNS server names under ipv4, and setting the wlan rate (or something similar) to 1492. Nothing works. This does not seem to be a network problem because my internet works fine in Windows, and I can access the configuration page for my router to change channels, PPP, etc..
I am succesfully installed a Dell wireless card with Broadcom 4328 shipset using ndiswrapper and rpm sources on Fedora 12 220.127.116.11-127.fc12.i686.PAE. Now I am using original Win drivers but the wifi conection is very slow and unstable.
My wifi connection drops sometimes and, for some reason, Network Manager attempts to connect to my neighbor's network, which requires a password (which I don't know). Is there any way to blacklist a wireless network so that the Network Manager will never attempt to connect to it?
I have just installed Fedora 15 on my desktop machine. It has found my WiFi card and has installed a driver but it is an incorrect driver. How do I remove it and install the correct one? The driver that is installed is a RaLInk RT 2800pci but the one it needs is a RaLink RT2860. This is the driver that I used with the same WiFi card in Fedora 14 using Ndiswrapper. Do I need ndiswrapper this time too?
Clicking on "Connection Information" says that the connection is active and that the driver is rt2800pci but I cannot connect to anything
Fedora 10 (dual boot w/ XP) on Dell Optiplex with a Dell wirelessntennaI am on a university campus with campus-wide wifi network (so no router). I have a wireless HP printer that I want to be able to print to using an ad-hoc connection. The wireless antenna, networking, and wireless printing are all working in Windows XP (so hardware is OK). However, on the linux side, the wifi is really really finicky.
When I first boot up to fedora, it usually connects no problem to the campus-wide wifi network. If I try to switch to the ad-hoc printer network (which it sees), will not connect and, furthermore, it will no longer connect to the campus-wide network (and sometimes it doesn't "see" this network at all). It seems that restarting the Network Manager service sometimes helps to reconnect to the campus-wide network, but not always and I can't connect to the ad-hoc regardlessNOTE: I'm just barely a linux user, and I didn't set up my system - don't assume that I did anything that would be common sense and, if you can, walk me through your suggestions.
I run ubuntu over network with pxe boot and I thought that maybe if I connect to my wifi and then disconnect the ethernet, the nfs connection will reconnect over the wifi.. but that didn't work. Anyone know how to make it work? seems like it should be simple.
How do I choose a wireless network to connect to? The Ubuntu 8.10 help tells me to open NetworkManager, but the only thing I can find is 'Network Configuration' in System>Preferences. If I try to run NetworkManager in usr/sbin as a root, nothing happens whatsoever. nm-tool lists several available Access Points for my WiFi antenna.
So recently we switched Internet Providers. While we had Bellsouth, my laptop would connect to our wireless internet flawlessly everytime. However, we just switched to Charter because it was both cheaper and faster. But now, my laptop will not connect to our wireless. If I hook it up to an Ethernet cord, it connects just fine. I believe they gave us a new modem/router or whatever it is that sends out the wifi signal.
I have tried to connect with this laptop on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Backtrack 4. On Ubuntu and Linux Mint, after I enter the correct WEP key, it sits there and tried to connect for a minute or two, but then the window pops up asking for the WEP key again, even though it's still filled out.
When I tried connecting on Backtrack, it told me that it could not obtain an IP address.
when it boots it doesn't ask me for my password (not the one to WiFi network, but the one to 'default key base') and because of that I can't connect to my WiFi network. The network itself is working fine. So i restart my computer (sometimes I have to restart it 15-20 times) and finally Ubuntu asks me for my password I type it in and everything works fine. what should I do with this?
about 90 percent of the time, i cannot connect to the internet. i click on the icon and select the network, but for some reason, instead of saying, "connection established", it says, "you are now disconnected."
I thought id give 11.04 a bash and i cant connect to internet via wifi i have a broadcom network adapter built into my hp530 laptop , and my network port is broken so cant use cable connection , so i thought id go back to 10.04 , guess wat i need to d/l the drivers again ... and again i have the same problem ? i have another laptop running win 7 , anyone know how i can get the drivers or what i can do ... ? its a broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g
I've been asked to look at a system which is running slowly. It's running hardy on an intel Q9400 quad core CPU system which should be a pretty fast machine.
The most obvious symptom of this problem is that the terminal takes about 10 seconds to open instead of the usual fraction of a second.
What I've discovered so far is that the system has 2 network ports one configured to access the LAN and the other to connect directly to another piece of hardware using a different subnet. If the LAN is not connected the system runs slowly and if it is connected it runs at normal speed. It also makes no difference whether or not the second network port is connected.
I've looked at the system monitor and can see no abnormal network traffic or processes using a lot of CPU resources.
When first starting up I am not able to get a wireless connection, network manager says that wireless is disabled. Then some time later (can be up to five minutes after starting up) it will finally start working.I have tried rfkill list all, but it shows:
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
i was fed up after i can't connect to wifi using ubuntu. the problem happened after my router is being replaced to a new one because the old one got struck by lightning. good thing i dual-boot my laptop so i can access the internet using Windows 7 now.
i use the default network manager to connect to wifi before, but it all seem to be failed after the replacement of router. i also used Wicd but it failed to connect either. it says in the notification "disconnected: bad password" but the password was right. my wifi used WEP password with open authentication.
i even remove the WEP password and try to connect, but it failed. all i can do is to boot in windows 7 and surf internet there. what could cause this problem? is it the router, the telephone line? i can set the router settings if i want, but i don't know what causes the problem.
I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop and I found that I cannot connect to my school's wifi network while i have no problem connecting using windows. Also I can connect to my home's wifi network. The details of the wifi network are as follow:
