Ubuntu Networking :: WUSB54G V4 Wireless Adapter - Continues To Slow Down To Crawl
Sep 6, 2010
I have a number of computers working just fine on my wireless network so I don't believe it is a router issue. I am running 10.04 on a dell gx280. I plug in the WUSB54g and ubuntu sees it and it connects to the internet just as it should. I can surf the internet thruough different browsers, and although a little sluggish, it works just fine. The problem is when I download a file. It starts out working as it should but continues to slow down to a crawl. Update manager had a 54MB update, it started out downloading, but then said it would take 2 hours so I just cancelled. I have several WUSB54g's and they all have the same issue. I changed to a different type of adapter, and the update manager only took a couple of minutes.
I have only been using Fedora for a month. I am trying to get a second computer up using the WUSB54G network adapter chipset 1915:2234. But the NetworkManager does not recognize it and it does not come up in the list of adapters when I try to add it.
I have a linux server that has seemingly random network slow downs. This server is mainly my dvr. I'm starting to think it's a hardware problem, but that's just a gut feeling. I don't really know how to determine if it isn't.
Slow summary:SSH, HTTP, VNC incoming traffic are all affected Outgoing traffic seems ok. I haven't tested this as much. Rebooting mostly helps. Stopping/starting network doesn't help Load average is below 1.0 Updated Kernel with no change
This is wireless adapter: [URL]... USB/Detail.bok I have 2 AWUS036H Wireless USB adapter that uses the RTL8187 Chipset connected to a USB 2.0 Port. It is very slow when I try to go to websites or download anything using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. The max speed I can get out of it is 135 Kilobytes per second when downloading anything. But when I am on Windows I can max out 2.6 Megabytes per second. I have been trying to find a solution but have found none. When I look at the light on the wireless adapter and compare it to what it looks like on both Ubuntu and Windows. It seems that the wireless adapter light is dimmer on Ubuntu. So I was thinking it was txpower set very low. I changed it but no success on changing speed. I am using WPA2-PSK which obviously uses AES. I have also tested it while it is in WEP and when it is Open with no change in speed. Speed results Ubuntu 10.04: Speed results Windows 7: I changed the settings to Megabytes on those speed results.
Ditching Windows for the last time but this seems to be a issue wireless seems fine for a bit but then the connection slows to around 20kbps or worse. Any ideas what it could be? Using 10.04.1 it says it has a 48mb connection and i have 4 bars.

I have a Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter, 2.4 GHz, 802.11g. It hooks up through USB plug, and when I originally plugged it in I got the message that ubuntu didn't support the drivers, but haven't seen it since. I'm hooked up to a LAN cable right now, and can't seem to figure out how to hook up through wireless with this device. Or I just don't know how. When I click on the network connections button on the top right corner (the two computers). I can see my Wired Internet, but no wireless. When I type lsusb in a terminal I get : (sorry I don't know how to do code blocks) So it is recognizing that it's there, but maybe I just don't know how to use it. Also, I'm running Ubuntu Release 10.04 (lucid).
I have been having come problem, my surfing speed has gone to zero. I can download at full speed but surfing is crawl speed or just timing out. I am pretty sure it's because firefox is clogged, I just want to know is there a way to clear the clog w/o losing my settings? I fixed this before by making a new user, but I don't want to loose all my saved form's and bookmarks.
i have a zenda w322u usb wireless adapter that gives a good connection to wireless router but seems to give very poor download performance compared to my laptop. Are there settings that i can access for this adapter to improve its performance.
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 13b1:000d Linksys WUSB54G Wireless Adapter wlan1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:18:f8:33:91:7d inet addr:192.168.1.100 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0[code]........
It is the linksys WUSB54g V4, im assuming it runs on the rt2500 chipset,when im connected and working it runs fine, however if i try to let a download run, it generally will disconnect and require me to unplug the device and plug it back in to get it working again, i cant just reconnect if i do that it simply wont connect, im connecting to a linksys router with the most recent firmware i think its the wrt54g v7, its setup using a wpa personal password and im connected through manual entry of my ip address due to port forwarding for some of my games, however the same issue persists even when im connected through an automatic configuration.
I have tried a couple of wireless adapters (USB dongles) but none of them work all that good on Ubuntu. I keep loosing connexion when on Ubuntu while on Windows (dual boot) there never seems to be any problems, so signal strength is probably not the issue. I bet it's a drivers problem so what I want to know is which adapters work really really good/great/fantastic on Ubuntu? The first option, wext, was chosen when I installed Wicd (running side by side with GNOME Network manager).
I've got a couple of old PC's running Ubuntu but I want to give them wireless capability and move them to a different room. What is the easiest wireles adapter to use? I'm thinking USB would be easier than opening the boxes to install cards, plus I could buy one adapter and try it with both PC's to make sure it works, then buy a second one once I know it works.
My wireless adapter stopped working randomly the other day. I think the last time it was working was right before I put the computer into hibernate for the first time. it stopped working even after restarting.modinfo p54usb shows (I'm leaving out information that seems irrelevant because I can't copy and paste without the internet, so I'm typing what I see from another computer)
firmware: isl3887usb firmware: isl3886usb
dmesg | grep firmware doesn't seem to show any requests for firmware related to it. lsusb shows something like
bus 002 device 001: ID... linux foundation 1.1 root hub bus 001 device 003: id... linksys wusb54g wireless adapter
When I start up, in boot messages I get something like this
WARNING deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. WARNING all config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release Device wlan0 does not seem to be present, delaying initializtion [FAILED]
My netbook have an internal wireless receiver, but from my room it doesn't work well, so I bought a TP Link TL-WN422G hoping it receives better. Ubuntu sees it but I don't know how to force using it.. I attach lsusb with peripheral in bold:
I've recently installed 10.04 LTS on an old laptop. I've not been able to connect to the internet at all. I finally finagled some drivers for my Broadcom BCM4318, and seemed to get everything in order, but it says that the "Radio hardware status changed to DISABLED"
Then, I pushed the button on the laptop to turn the wireless on, and it worked! But then as soon as I let the button go, it turned off. Is there some way to toggle it so it's always on?
I bought a USB adapter for my wireless connection at home. But there is no drivers for the adapters in ubuntu, there is only windows executable files. I am using ubuntu 10.04. I spend around 40$ for the adapter. Some one please help me how to work this out. Its NP910n netcomm adapter. I am using ubuntu10.04.
Previously I had my desktop hooked up to a nearby router via an ethernet cord with my parents' computer having a wireless usb adapter to connect (This thing: [uRL]). We just moved and our setup has reversed (router is near their computer, I am using the usb adapter). I just installed the latest Ubuntu and now I can't get the usb adapter to work. I'm very new to Linux and I have no idea what to do. I think this is the same usb adapter.
Recently I purchased for few bucks on eBay a wireless network adapter with name "EDUP 802.11N". This thread explains how to setup this device on Ubuntu. I inserted USB wireless adapter on Windows XP and it was recognized as "Realtek RTL8188SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter". Windows didn't have any problem to install its driver automatically but for Ubuntu I had to give some additional effort.
After that I went on Realtek official site (www.realtek.com.tw) where I found that this device is supported on linux platform, downloaded and compiled linux driver. This driver (kernel module) is for kernels from 2.6.18 ~ 2.6.33. Unzip this file and in "drivers" subfolder there is driver archive (tar.gz).
As the title reads. My wireless adapter does not work when I boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD. The adapter in question... tricky. It's this one: [URL]...- however, aside from a mention in one of the comments to a "Ralink RT2780", I don't see any reference to a make/model.
The software that ships with this product is indeed Ralink-branded, but again there's no mention of a specific make/model. So I assume it's just a driver issue, however I've no idea where to begin in my search for one as I can't identify its model number.
