OpenSUSE Wireless :: How To Get Speed Up / How To Get Internet At Home To Work

Mar 22, 2010

I recently installed Open SUSE on my HP laptop with a (duh) Broadcom Wifi card. I finally got it to work, but it works very slowly. The max speed I get at my college WiFi is 5 mbits, and at home I can't access the Internet at all ,just the LAN. It works perfectly in Windows on the same machine. At my college the Internet works fine though.Anybody got some tips how to get the speed up and how to get the Internet at home to work?

Ubuntu Networking :: Why Does Wireless Speed Keep Slowing

May 13, 2010

I recently got karoo broadband installed, the speed is normally 8mbps but the longer I am connected to my router the slower it gets, I have to disconnect and reconnect to the router to get back to full speed, is this due to a bad wireless driver or do I need new drivers or a better router.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 - Very Slow Wireless Speed

Mar 28, 2011

I have very suboptimal Internet speed in Wifi with Ubuntu. Normally in WIndows 7 I get download speeds up to 800 KB/s and a very fast Wifi experience, but in Ubuntu I get 100KB/s maximum and web page load speed is very extremely slow. Also, pinging to AP often gives very high response times and a lot of lost packages while in Windows they are very low and none packages are lost. I have a Netgear wg111v3 which worked out of box when I installed Ubuntu but always with this problem. It is updated and I've reinstalled Ubuntu many times..

Also I forgot to say that in Ubuntu the connection goes down very often and sometimes will not connect again until I reboot. Again in Windows never happened that.
Motherboard: GA-MA74GM-S2H
CPU: AMD Athlon 64X2 dual core
Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit
Wireless adapter Netgear wg111v3 USB .....

Ubuntu Networking :: Set Wireless Speed In Natty?

Mar 28, 2011

How do you set wireless speed in natty? I've tried

sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M

but nothing happens. I've tried this with wireless enabled and disabled (using network-manager), with and without the module loaded (ath9k) and using the solution provided in some forums (adding the command in /etc/rc.local and in a script in /etc/network/if-up.d) but to no avail... link speed always shows up as 65M.

Ubuntu Networking :: 8.04 - Wireless Speed Slow / Drop

Jan 15, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu 8.04 for about a year and the wireless has been fine but now it's gone screwy and I can't figure out why. This has happened on my laptop and wife's who uses Ubuntu Hardy also. The speed drops to almost 0 mb/s whenever the signal strength is less than 95%.

It isn't the internet connection as vista (I dual boot) works fine below 95% signal strength. To get the internet speed to be at a level that can load an internet page, I have to within 3 feet of the router!! Both of the laptops don't use ndiswrapper, the internet connected straight away from a fresh install.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 - Low Download Speed On Wireless Connection

Feb 22, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop using the Wubi installer. Everything seems to be working fine except for my wireless connection. When I plug in my wired connection and test on speedtest.net I get download speeds of 20MB/second. However, when I switch to my wireless connection, I barely break 1MB/second. I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have scoured this forum, Google, everywhere I can think of to find a solution and none seem to work for me. I love Ubuntu but this might be a deal breaker...

Networking :: Wireless Download Speed Limited To 64 Kbps

Sep 12, 2010

I am connecting from this Ubuntu 9.10 computer to a WRT54G running dd-wrt, over WPA2 AES. Normally, everything works fine and I get very satisfactory download speeds; usually 1.5+ Mbps. Sometimes though, usually after restarting networking a lot, i.e. /etc/init.d/networking restart, the download speed seems to be limited to around 64-70 kbps. It also happened recently when I disconnected from a vpn with vpnc. It's really strange because it has nothing to do with changing any settings.

The only things I can think of are POSSIBLY wpa_supplicant causing problems because that's the only thing besides networking that's restarted. It could be related to my router config but I can't imagine what because it runs so fast normally. Rebooting the router doesn't fix it. Restarting the network, manually killing wpa_supplicant, rebooting the router. None of these seem to fix it. The only way I've found is to just reboot. Obviously, something breaks at some point that isn't affected again by anything but a reboot.

Networking :: Wireless Is Flakey -- Dropped Connections, Poor Speed?

Jun 15, 2010

My wireless is flakey -- dropped connections, poor speed, etc. As diagnosis, I loaded the 'wavemon' utility so that I might watch the radio and signal and noise.Things will be good, then fall off, then get better, then go away entirely. Repeat continuously and randomly. For these experiments, my laptops -- more than one -- are on a table.The table is roughly 15-20 ft laterally from the access point. The access point is also 8 ft above the floor vs. 3 ft table height.(grin) While the signal "wobbles" everything else is mechanically stable and otherwise not moving.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Lost It - 'wmaster0 No Wireless Extensions', But Then Refers To Wlan0 As The Wireless Connection

Mar 28, 2010

A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.

Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:

1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.

2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).

3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.

General :: Wireless Networking - Wi-Fi Connection Download Speed Is Cut In Half In Mint?

Sep 19, 2011

I have a pretty decent DSL connection that usually gave me about 105KB/second download speed over wifi. The "official" download speed was 1.5 megabits so I should have been getting a bit more, but that's not my question.

I recently switched to Mint from Ubuntu. Now my download speed is significantly slower, to the tune of 45 KB/second. Since the connection runs at normal speed when I connect via an ethernet cable, my guess is that mint doesn't give enough power to the wifi card. Is there any way I can fix that?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: MSI Wind U100 Wireless Freezes Computer?

Oct 5, 2010

I'm not sure where to post this but seeing as how, at least as far as I can tell, the problem is related to the wireless card or drivers, I figure this is as good a place as any. On to the problem, I recently install openSUSE 11.2 Gnome on my MSI Wind U100 netbook. Everything appeared to work fine right after install, wireless and everything. However, soon after that I began having issues where the screen would freeze and I would be unable to do anything until I force restarted the computer.

Now I believe the problem is related to my wireless as this problem occurs most frequently when I am either downloading a lot of data over wifi or fiddling with the network. I have had it freeze many times while switching wireless networks or while experiencing wireless issues such as an intermittent connection. I may be completely wrong in my above analysis of the problem, but I figured i need to post somewhere to get started. If anyone feels this post may get more help in another forum, please just let me know.

Ubuntu Networking :: BT Home Hub - Change To Wireless

Sep 18, 2010

I currently have a desktop PC (running 10.04) connected to the home hub (v2) via ethernet and everything works correctly. I want to change to wireless so I can move the home hub, I've tried several usb wireless adapters and always end up with the same issue. I can associate with the home hub it will hand out an ip address, answer dns queries and allow me to connect to its web setup page but not the internet (ping, web, etc). I also have a htpc (also 10.04) which is able to connect through the wireless correctly plus a laptop running XP.

Desktop - Ubuntu 10.04 (gnome)
HTPC - Mythtv 10.04
Laptop - Windows XP

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Fine At Home, But Not At Starbucks?

Feb 8, 2010

I have wubi Kubuntu installed and had no problems with wireless at home. Starbucks uses the Bell network for free wireless access, and in Windows I can use it without problems. It is the typical free network, that immediately asks you for a login name when you try to use a web browser. When I do it in Ubuntu at Starbucks, it sees the network and "activates" it, but when I go to Firefox, it does not ask for the typical login information. It can't find any web pages at all.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Pick Up Home Wireless Signal?

Mar 15, 2010

For the past few months I've been using Ultimate Edition 2.3 on my laptop. Various problems I encountered convinced me to switch. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 today and after the install I can't pick up my wireless router on the list of available networks. I'm able to pick up every other one on my block, just not my own. My server and my roommates laptop can pick it up and are connected to it, the problem seems to be exclusive to this laptop with the fresh install on it.I tried the 'connect to hidden network' option and it doesn't connect, it just keeps asking for the psk

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Home Wireless Network

Nov 11, 2010

So I finally successfully installed Ubuntu 10.10, but I can't access my home wireless network. I dual booted with Windows 7, and it detects my local wireless network, asks for the key and connects correctly. In Ubuntu, I have to plug in an ethernet cable to access the internet (like I am now). Ubuntu doesn't detect the network, and I tried "Create New Wireless Network..." up the top right, but it doesn't connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: DWA 522 - Wireless Not Working - AMD - Home Build?

Mar 29, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 - 2.6.35-28-generic-pae i686 on a home build machine. The wireless has not been working for several months but I "duck taped" the problem by connecting my eee to my machine and using the internet that way. I'm finally getting to fixing the issue but I can't seem to figure out what the issue is. I think there might be a driver conflict because the wireless was detecting networks last night, but inconsistently - they would appear and then leave. Also, the green light on the wireless card does not work. Here is all the information I could provide:

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Goes Out When Another Computer Turns On

Feb 9, 2011

I have an Asus Eee S101 netbook running UNE 10.10. When I have the netbook on, I have no problems connecting to my WPA encrypted wireless network being broadcast by a Buffalo router running DD-WRT. When I turn on my desktop computer in the other room (running Windows Vista) which also uses the same wireless network, the netbook disconnects. Then it will take a few minutes to reconnect. Periodically it will do this until the other computer is powered down. I don't know if this is an OS issue or the hardware, but is there any sort of troubleshooting I could do to look into this? It seems like the desktop is somehow interfering with the netbook's connection, booting it offline.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Adaprer Does Not Recognise Home Network?

Feb 10, 2011

At home I use ADSL and my machine has no problem to connect to wired network. But I still can not set up my wireless network. Network Manager scans for other networks in range and find few but my own network is not listed. My other machine (Windows 7 OS) does not have that problem. What could be the problem? Is it the encryption of the network? I've tried with Wicd also - no progress. Did anyone else have the same problem?
