Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Sometimes Disconnects And Doesn't Connect?
Mar 9, 2011
I facing a really annoying problem. I download regularly during the night using Wifi. The problem is that because I'm away, the wireless just disconnects and the pop window shows up asking me to into the password. The password is already saved in the windows so I just have to click 'connect'ut I don't understand why does it disconnect and when it tries to connect it asks for password again!y doesn't it simply 'try' to connect without asking the password when it is already saved.
so my wireless isn't working. My netbook wireless detects the available networks but when I try to connect it doesn't. The box that asks me to put in the password occasionally shows up but it still doesn't load. I even tried re-installing Ubuntu and didn't fix anything.I'm using kernel version 2.6.35-22-generic and
i'm experiencing some weird behaviour: I have a server running ubuntu 10.04 and two Apple laptops in my home network. Sometimes after booting up the server doesn't connect to the wireless network, but instead "kills" the connection of the laptops. (The network then isn't available for about two minutes - it's showing but it can't connect) On the server the network interface is up, but not associated.
Sometimes the interface isn't configured properly (iwconfig isn't showing an entry) - but in this case the behaviour obviously isn't showing. some information about my system:
Ubuntu Version: Server 10.04x64 Wireless Card: Netgear WG311v3 with marvell chipset Driver: ndiswrapper+mrv8335x64
I've just literally gone out this morning and bought the Belkin N300 Dual Band USB for my Deskstation running Maverick Meerkat. At first i put the stick in and nothing happened. So i went to System>admin>Windows wireless drivers and clicked on there. I put the CD in the drive that came with the dongle and found the drivers folder on the disk. I then installed the .inf file in the XP folder. It connected straight away as easy as that.
I'm really frustrated though as it loses conectivity and then asks me for my WAP password on connection, but then doesn't seem to connect. I unplug the dongle and then hit connect again and it connects.
If i use the same dongle on XP i have no problems what so ever, so i know its not a signal strength issue.
I have a dell d800 laptop using a hp 802abg nic and it doesn't properly initialize until gnome desktop is loadedI'm using 128 bit key and a hidden network name.I would like to have wireless networking running before /etc/rc.local is executed at boot time to connect to nfs shares.after gnome is loaded and I login to user account, wireless networking starts and connects.When I set inittab to 3 and boot machine, ifconfig and iwcfg report card doesn't exist, when I then telinit 5 and start x/gnome card gets properly setupis it possible the card doesn't get initialize3ed because the network key needs to be entered in a file somewhere that the boot sequence can access it and init the card properly?
A friend called me today and he explained to me that after his ubuntu install he was unable to connect to a wired Ethernet network. He says it trys to connect using ETH0 and then seemingly fails and disconnects. I have him run a if config and send me a pic. The very odd thing about it is He had a lot 5-8 INET6 address? The laptops is Acer extensa 4420
Working on ubuntu 10.04 on an IBM Thinkpad X61 laptop with an Alpha 2W wireless usb card on wlan0. Once in a while the wireless network disconnects and can't connect to any network in range (open, wep, wpa, wpa2). It looks like it's trying to connect but then asks for a password (even if allready given one) and if open just not finishing connecting and trying to connect to another network. Happends the same with wicd. Network card is working ok. Also with other computers. Drivers are installed correctly and power consumption management is off.
i have ubuntu 9.10 on a lenovo s10. i had my alfa awus036h and it worked fine no issues. except for having to reconnect every hour or so. anyway i got back track 4 final and installed it on usb with unetbootin. i started to use wicd and etter cap on it. and i made sure to turn off wicd when i was done then i went back into ubuntu (i didnt install bt) and i started to have problems like everyone else. slow connections ,disconnects after 1 min, and can still connect to networks but cant surf.
I'm using an Acer Aspire One d250 running Netubuntu 10.04. The wireless connection to my router fails at random intervals and spends most of it's time trying to reconnect. It will occasionally ask me to input the password to the network, which is already entered in the dialog box, and clicking "connect" doesn't seem to make any difference. Also, when it is disconnected from the network, none of the other computers in the house, wired or wireless, are having any problems. If there is any more information I could provide,
I use ubuntu 10.10 and disconnects from wireless at random. after it reconnects the the connection speed is very slow and unstable. It's not my router because it works fine on my sister's netbook (which is also running ubuntu) and it worked fine when I was running windows? I'm not very advanced with linux so you know. I don't have IPv6 enabled. My laptop is an "Advent QRC430" my wireless card is QCOM Q802XKG Wireless Network Card.
After I updated to kernel-22.214.171.124-159.fc10 a couple of weeks ago, my wireless kept dropping the connection every few minutes (using an intel 3945 with the kernel iwl driver), particularly if secured with WPA. Updating to the 126.96.36.199-170.2.5.fc10 kernel currently in updates-testing has solved the problem.
I upgraded to Karmic the other day and my Wireless Internet has been disconnecting every hour or so. I had the same problem on Intrepid but I managed to fix it somehow. After disconnecting, it will reconnect after a few seconds.
After upgrade to Lucid I have experienced intermittent wireless disruptions. The wireless just cuts out and reconnects.And I was hoping to continue or follow up on the same thread however with the released version.I tried replacing network manager with wicd and I tried the other driver options both without success.I'm currently using the Broadcom B43 driver, when I tried the Broadcom STA driver wireless would not work. I use the 64 bit OS, and this problem did not appear prior to the upgrade.
After the last system update (few days ago) the wireless box disconnects and reconnects continuously (every 60-90 secs). This is the pertinent /var/log/messages when it disconnects: Code: Jan 11 16:16:24 ibm kernel: [ 8073.320442] -->RTUSBVenderReset Jan 11 16:16:24 ibm kernel: [ 8073.321453] <--RTUSBVenderReset Jan 11 16:16:26 ibm kernel: [ 8075.624596] Key1Str is Invalid key length(0) or Type(0) Jan 11 16:16:26 ibm kernel: [ 8075.624632] Key2Str is Invalid key length(0) or Type(0) Jan 11 16:16:26 ibm kernel: [ 8075.624668] Key3Str is Invalid key length(0) or Type(0) Jan 11 16:16:26 ibm kernel: [ 8075.624705] Key4Str is Invalid key length(0) or Type(0) Jan 11 16:16:26 ibm kernel: [ 8075.625355] 1.

I recently upgraded from Maverick Meerkat to (classic) Natty Narwhal Ubuntu Linux. I am running on a Toshiba Satellite A665 (Intel i7). I use a wireless internet connection. Under Maverick, I had no issues. Under the update, I am finding that occasionally things stop working: The indicator Applet looks fine, but from a terminal, I find that I am no longer able to ping my own router (less than 10 feet away.) This behavior occurs after working fine for a few hours. I am unsure if anything in particular triggers it (I will report back if I determine a particular cause). I have a few other computers (2 running Windows, and the other Maverick Meerkat) -- and they are unaffected. Turning wireless off and on resolves the issue for me on Natty. Rebooting also works. Here's some hopefully relevant technical details about my system:
Code: ~$ rfkill list all 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I'm having issue with my wireless connection. I'm not sure if it is the WPA security causing the issue, but I randomly lose connection to the router. The network manager then scans for available wireless routers for a bit before trying to reconnect to my router and asking for my wireless password again.
I have a hp dv3 2110eg laptop with OpenSuse 11.1 (KDE 3.5.10) and Windows 7 dual boot. My wireless disconnects and connects automatically at random intervals. I do not observe this behavior when operating my laptop under Windows 7. Following some suggestions given in this forum , I uninstalled networkmanager and installed wicd. However, this does not seem to solve the problem. Given below are the relevant information. uname -r
The wireless disconnects intermittently and asks for the WEP password again and again. The network adapter is intel wireless/pro 3945 ABG. Please let me know what I can do to avoid this issue. When using 9.10 there is no issue in wireless connection.
I'm having a problem with my wireless connection. When it runs, it's perfect, but every once in a while (and increasingly more often) it randomly disconnects and doesn't reconnect when I click reconnect, even if I manually disconnect it. Every time this happens, I have to reboot the system, after which it works perfectly. Then it dies again.
I've checked around the forums, there are some similar threads but they seem to be specific to the wireless card. The reboot method works, but I'd really like to find a way to solve the problem without having to resolve to the Vulcan nerve pinch. I'm a real newbie to Linux and the more complex side of computers in general, and I hardly know what is what, so please excuse me if I seem a bit thick.
Running Ubuntu 11.04 on a Gateway LT3103U netbook. It's running fine except for that fact that when it goes to sleep (timeout or lid closed) or going into suspend or otherwise restarted/shutdown, my router restarts. It's a DLink DIR-655 that has been working fine until I changed this netbook to Ubuntu.After installing Ubuntu on the netbook, it found my SSID being broadcast and I added the connection by supplying the WPA2 password. I have full network access (local and internet).
It's just the router restarts and all my other machines lose connections. The router is using DHCP but supplying IPs based on MAC. Netbook is set to use DHCP.
I have my laptop dual booted between Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7. In Ubuntu I randomly lose connection to the wireless network. It always works fine when I first boot into Ubuntu but after a while my wireless connection will go down. The signal strength meter will go to zero bars and the black popup message will appear that my wireless connection has disconnected. At first, if I just wait a bit, the connection will come back. However, after about 4 or 5 times of doing this it will then ask me for my password, and inputting the password does not reconnect me to the AP. I am finally forced to reboot. Then it works OK for a while again and the cycle repeats.
It works fine in Windows7 all day, every day. I have the Release Candidate of Windows7 so it's going to expire soon. I would really prefer to make Ubuntu my everyday OS on this laptop rather than pay for a Windows7 license but I cannot tolerate a flaky wireless connection.
I had 8.1 on this laptop at one point and I never had any problems with the wireless then, that I can remember. I had no Ubuntu for a while but then I came back with the 9.1 and was loving it until the wireless problem reared it's ugly head.

When I installed Lucid I got temporary wifi connection. It disconnected for no reason. Then it was constantly trying to reconnect, telling me my password was wrong. Which wasn't wrong at all. So I installed Lucid again from scratch and now everything seems to work fine. The only thing I didn't do was install the 'restricted drivers'. This was only one driver for me which had to do with my modem. Wifi works perfectly now. I hope it stays that way .reinstall Lucid and DO NOT install the 'restricted drivers' for your modem
I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 because I was facing internet problems with previous Ubuntu 9.04 after I upgraded it with downloaded software. And now, 10.10 connects to wireless, but shows web-page some-times and repeatedly disconnects. Earlier it wasn't reaching Internet at all. Some of the topics here helped a lot. But this intermittent internet seems not going anywhere. Wired Internet connects easily though.
I've tried :-
-disabling ipv6..... first in Firefox, then in Kernel also -Setting DNS.....System> Preferences> Network Connections -setting static Ip
