Ubuntu Networking :: Disconnect Pc From Switch It Sometimes Connects Before It Times Out
May 19, 2010
I have my internet connection via a wireless USB adapter and that works fine. Recently I connected my pc (Ubuntu 9.10) through a wired switch to my modified xbox so I can watch my videos in my office. I can share my content with my xbox (except for the items on my external USB HD's - I am working on that and will post that question elsewhere) but when I have my PC's wired connection plugged into the switch I can not surf the web or check email. It gets stuck at resolving host and then times out. If I disconnect the pc from the switch it sometimes connects before it times out. Usually it is quicker if I reboot without the wired intranet connection.
I run skype, I have to connect/disconnect at least 3 times for the other person to be able to hear me , not see, just hear. and very often during this process skype crashes. and the video quality is just terrible compared to when i use to run skype on windows from the same machine. I ran skype from the terminal and im just wondering what all this output means
Periodically, about 3 to 5 hours, Ubuntu disconnects from my wi-fi network and doesn't reconnect until I restart the router.This is an Ubuntu specific issue, since it doesn't happen when I boot into my Windows partition, and it doesn't happen to other computers on the network.
use kubuntu 9.10 64-bit on AMD Turion M500 machine.The network keeps disconnecting periodically or on some heavy activity The connection is totally stable on windows 7 though.My doubts point to network manager and so my next step is to switch to command line wpa_supplicant
I use network-manager-pptp to connect to my VPN server. However, occasionally my VPN drops out (although my Internet stays up). I was just wondering how I could make the VPN drop-out trigger a bash script, for example playing a sound to alert me that the VPN has dropped?
I tough that firefox was the problem of my very slow web sites loading, but I am suspecting that sometimes the internet connection is the reason, maybe for some reason that I don't know it can not just connect to the site.I am running Linux quick-desktop 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:28:05 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux.when I browse the web it is very slow to load.sometimes I get this error message.Could not locate remote server.Even I know the site is up running like google.
A month ago I had (and still have) a weird problem were leaving my switched off computer plugged into the network killed the whole network.
well I have found a fix, if I disconnect my computer via software (Right click and disconnect "eth1" and shut down the network will remain up. I want to make a script that runs on shutdown that simply disconnects "eth1". Are there any pre-made shutdown scripts in ubuntu that I can simply add "eth1 enabled = 0" or something.
i installed linux at home on my laptop (dv2000, hp). Because i was having problems connecting to the internet through wireless. And wired at friends houses.So installed linux. Wireless took me a while but finally got that working. Now the problem i have is that wired is not working apart from at home. Any other router apart from mine it cannot connect to.
I have an asus eeepc 1015pem with the builtin wireless adapter..
and it seems to work ok connecting to the network for the most part. but when i start pushing decent traffic like with an scp copy of many files, the network will disconnect after a few seconds. with the following
ive searched and searched, but cant seem to find out what the heck is wrong with this silly thing..
The combination "~." disconnects SSH session. But if I enter "~" twice, I won't be able to use this combo again to disconnect. Can I get this combo to work again within one SSH session if I typed in the "~" twice?
I have a cisco linksys wireless adapter (WUSB600n) which, most of the time, great when booting up. But mostly after some time (1min- 1hr.) it disconnects. When checking the status I can see some of the networks around me, including mine. But selecting it doesn't do anything. I searched the forums and tried:
sudo dhclient and sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
But still no connection; the only thing that helps is rebooting.
I have 2 nic cards. One I use for my LAN and the other for my WAN (ftp, web). I am using a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. If I disconnect the WAN I can download packages (apt-get), ping etc. If both nic cards are active I cannot do either. This behavior is the same whether or not iptables is enabled. BTW I am using the server version. I was only able to find examples that used a GUI, nothing from the command line.
I am checking something out in my connection and i just wanted to ask, is there a way to auto-disconnect and connect from the internet, for example say I want to disconnect now and reconnect to the internet in 0.05 seconds, is there any program that does that?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Acer TravelMate 3270 notebook (with Windows 7 dual boot) for everyday use. All is great except i started to notice my Wireless Network get disconnected and then reconnects every 5 minutes or so. Also the NetworkManager Applet 0.8 keep annoying me with the notifications that its disconnected and then reconnected.
I do not have this issue while using Windows 7 (in the same area). Can this be fixed. As i really want to move my day to day computing need to Ubuntu.
I installed Red Hat Eterprise Linux 5.4 Server on my HCL Server machine.I use a static IP for my server. The problem is the network connection is automatically disconnected for some times and it again connected automatically after some time. It happens in periodic manner.I check my cable, port and connection.Those works fine in other PC
Since I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 my wireless connection is very unstable. I install the needed wireless drivers from 'Hardware Drivers' (Broadcom STA wireless driver) and I got wireless connection, but it randomly disconnect, and also connection is very slow.
I think that the problem are the drivers which are not very compatible with this version of Ubuntu, which means we need to wait for update? I have HP ProBook 4510s laptop, Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN network card & Gembird NSW-R2 router. I'm only having this problem on Ubuntu 10.04, on other OS's the internet is fine.
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 a usb wireless card called "edimax ew-7318" i used it for a year and it was great- worked out of the box. recently i've been having repeating disconnect problems every few minutes or seconds it will disconnect and then reconnect again
In system log i get:
It seams like a physical hardware problem but i cant find any physical fault on the card itself.
I was happily running Ubuntu 9 but since I cannot get security updates for it anymore I had to upgrade to 11. Now I'm on Natty, and the "NetworkManager" apparently cannot deal with my latop's wifi card which worked fine for years under ubuntu 9. The laptop is a Dell latitude D610 and the card is an intel ipw2200 minipci. I used to just run /etc/init.d/network restart after I logged in to get the wireless to come up, if it failed by itself, but now I get a message that that's deprecated. Nice.
I'm running WPA. If I don't create a wireless configuration in the network manager, wireless never connects. Ever. If I do create a configuration, the connection comes up for about a minute, and then drops. And then comes up. And then drops. And then comes up. And then drops. It's insane. Also, I get a series of "Auto <ssid>" entries in the NM settings area.I dug around in /var/log, but all of the wpa_supplicant logs are of size 0, except the gzipped backups, which are all size 20. Go gzip. The syslog has some messages in it about 4-way handshake failed, and association taking too long, but since the laptop has no network connection I don't have an easy way to post those here.I just want the wireless to come up, by itself, when I turn on the laptop like it used to. I don't want to have to deal with retyping the (long and complicated) WPA password every time I wake up the machine, nor deal with the "keychain." How do I get there?
I have described my issue in detail here: [URL] basically, I am having a mysql server which keeps piling up on it's unix domain socket connections.
here's a small example of netstat as it looks now (count about 80-100 connections paired with httpd):
Code: Active UNIX domain sockets (servers and established) Proto RefCnt Flags Type State I-Node PID/Program name Path unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 3521428 12429/mysqld /tmp/mysql.sock
This is indeed a mysql server issue as far as I managed to debug it but until a workaround/fix is found I need to have my server responsive and the first idea that comes to my mind is to somehow kill those stray connections. as described in the mysql topic mentioend above, killing from mysql will not work. I need to kill them from outside mysql. I have setup a crontab script to kill and restart the mysql server when it cannot connect and it runs every 5 min. however this only lead to mysql being down sooner rather than later because in many cases just kill -9 and then service start mysql does not do the job (it's either part of the same issue of mysql or another issue). basically I need to manually kill mysqld instances a bunch of times until it's ok, OR, if that doesn't work, stop everything that is using mysql, wait a few minutes, and then start mysql. so I ditched that script and now I am manually restarting mysql server every ~ 24 hours.
so basically it's a pain. if I were to kill the stray connections however, I will not have to bother every day with restarting mysql.
I've got a Zotac MAG HD-ND01 with XBMC live installed. This is built on Karmic Koala and runs very nicely through the wired NIC.
I configure the box using a cable. I'm using WPA2-PSK and it is clearly authenticating OK.. It gets an IP address.. the AP shows a connection to the box. My XP laptop connects to the access point OK.. just can't connect to the box via the wireless, and it can't see the network using wireless.
I have followed a number of threads on connecting Atheros 9XXX wireless [URL] but no joy.
Also, can Ubuntu connect to the AP at any speed greater than 54MB? My windows PC connects at 144MB+ . Will ndiswrappers connect at those sorts of speeds?

I can normally connect to most wifi connections, but for some reason I can't connect to my broth's-gf-parent's network. Windows 7 can connect to it just fine, but not Ubuntu. Once in a while I'll go to a cafe, and this will happen there too.hough, like I said I can normally connect to all other wifi networks with no hassle
Let me start by saying that I am new to ubuntu, and that I always use forums as a last resort.
I installed ubuntu 10, and immediately after the Wifi card deected my network name, and actually connected to it, but then I opened up firefox and....no internet.
Since then I have been trying to fix this problem, and after some research I found out that my card (PCI Cwp-905) is RT2760 based, and I downloaded the linux RT2760 drivers for it.
The driver folder contained a readme file with commands you should enter to install it, and other setup files. The problem: every command I typed in didn't work. I tried "make", and then "sudo make", but just got permission denied each time. I am now at a dead end. (Please note that I changed my directory to the folder location before doing this)
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? If you want I can attach the driver files.
My wireless connection always worked. When I log in, I already have internet access.I went on holiday and connected to several other networks.Now the laptop will not connect anymore. Sometimes after 5-10 minutes.When I forse to connect ("Connect to hidden wireless network), the laptop connects after several seconds. But not automatically.My wireless modem uses WPA2, MAC filtering and has a hidden access point.I use Ubuntu 10.4 on a HP Probook laptop. In "Network connections", under "Wireless", the "Connect Automaticly" and "Available to all users" are selected. When connected, the signal strenght is very good.
i noticed today that the last three places ive tried to use wifi at (a friends house, my cousins house, and my moms office wifi) refuse to connect, even after triple checking all the passwords and trying various security protocols (WEP 40, WEP 128, etc.). strangely, last weekend i was able to connect to a hotel wifi signal with no trouble. even stranger, my ipod touch is able to connect to all these places. at my friends house, we even tried an ethernet cable but ubuntu didnt even know it was there. im a little concerned about this, as i might need to connect to wifi for something really important and ubuntu wont cooperate.
