Ubuntu Networking :: Natty Netman Connect/disconnect Wifi Every Minute?
Jun 26, 2011
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?
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 posted this on Launchpad under bug# 569445 and though I'm certain someone in our heroic development community will have a look at it eventually, maybe someone can help me here in the meantime, or at least provide some background info. Maybe a little reassurance that Ubuntu isn't broken for my Wifi is all I need.
Binary package hint: wireless-crda I do hope I've picked the right package for this. Investigators, feel free to email me with whatever bash commands you need me to find out more about the hardware. The problem is that wireless in Lucid is dying for me after about a minute or so, and the activity light on my netbook just flashes. The wireless monitor at the top of the screen still thinks it's connected. It's like it's out of sync or something.
This doesn't happen under Win7 on this hardware, nor does it happen to other devices in my house on the network. Also, I wasn't having this problem under Lucid Beta 1 I have an Acer Aspire (Olympic Variant) 1410 Win7 reports the adapter as Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN The wireless router I'm using is a DLink DIR-628. The connection is OPEN.
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 have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

Reading recent posts, it seems that 11.04 has seriously screwed wifi. I have an Advent QRC430 laptop which worked perfectly until I upgraded to Natty. Now wifi is broken. The wifi driver is rt73usb. When I run lspci in terminal, no wifi card is listed. Running rfkill shows wifi hard blocked, but the switch on laptop makes no difference. I've installed and run Hardware Lister - this shows wireless interface "has been disabled"
I have a Broadcom BCM4318 that isn't working with the B43 or the other (I tried installing both and while they supposedly installed successfully, neither shows up in the Additional Drivers tab for me to enable.) I tried using both sets of directions stickied up at the top of this forum. Neither seems to be working for me (no guarantees on whether I did it right) though the B43 is apparently the one I need.Disclaimer: I'm a total newbie to using command line and a new convert from Windows so I'm rusty at navigating and making things work, though things are finally starting to make a little sense after two days of hacking at it.
I have just upgrade to natty from maverick and my usb wifi dongle doesn't want to work. The usb wifi adapter i use is a Thonsom Speedtouch 121g. When using ubuntu 10.10 it work's fine after installing the package linux-firmware-nonfree, but after upgrading to natty it has stop working (the linux-firmware-nonfree package is installed [don't know if is the same version or an upgraded one]).
The network manager doesn't display available wifi nets. The output for lsusb is:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 06b9:0121 Alcatel Telecom SpeedTouch 121g Wireless Dongle
I've had recurring problems with Ubuntu wifi on my Thinkpad before. Usually powering down and toggling the physical wifi switch off, then toggling wifi on again after the system has booted would solve the problem. This time that isn't working. Wireless is completely absent from the network-manager applet. Wireless works for me 99% of the time for me, but every few months will "disappear" for some reason. Does anyone have any advice or know a thread they can point me to? I've posted the results for 'lspci -k', iwconfig and 'lshw -C network' bellow:
I can connect to the internet through wifi, but I cannot connect to anything on my network. I have a printer and a NAS, so I would really like for this to work again. I have a dell laptop with a Broadcom card.
I have strange problem with my wireless connection. When I boot my computer, I can connect to my wireless network normally. After a random time between 2 and 20 minutes, I am disconnect and cannot reconnect to any wireless network I have no problems in Windows and Android.
I use the broadcom-sta-dkms driver and the power management is disabled.
Got Ubuntu 11.4 installed on my Lenovo Thinkpad X220.Except very very rare cases i'm not able to establish awlan connection.Scanning is possible at all times, monitor mode works as well.Network Controler (lspci)
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 on Fedora Linux?
Recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on laptop - new partition. Have PC running XP with internet connection. I have a satellite connect from Germany. I live in Turkmenistan.I know all IP addresses, subnet mask, Default gateway, etc. Can someone help configure internet on laptop w/Ubuntu? I am not the fastest ball down the alley but I shouldn't have too much problem with the terminal. Just be gentle. I just completed a pppoeconf search and was informed something or another couldn't be found. It's a little frustrating because I need to disconnect internet cable from PC and connect to Laptop. let me add that I do not have an internet user name or password "supplied by ISP". But I hooked up connection OK on XP.
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
Having played around with ubuntu a fair bit I decided to breathe life into an old thinkpad with a pcmcia wireless card, by following the minimal install instructions and using lxde window manager etc.. Everything works fine apart from the fact that I cannot connect wirelessly. The card picks up and lists connections but whenever I have clicked on a connection the dail spins and then it gives up.I installed network-manager and managed to get nm-applet appearing in the sysTray otherwise I would not even have known there was wireless connections there.
I was thinking there maybe some conflict with another network manager, does this sound likely?
I'm having an issue recently with Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Connecting to my wifi is not working. I believe it is some kind of issue with the router. On Windows 7 the only way that I could connect to the net was by copying the network profile to a usb flashdrive from another computer and loading it mine. The wireless signal just keeps attempting to connect.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my EeePC 1000H. I don't use this computer often but it has always worked before... I suspect an update did this to me. I've recently swapped wireless routers but all my other machines have been able to connect to the new router. I can see the SSID and the signal strength is high but when I try to connect to it, it just attempts for a long time then asks me for my password again. I am currently connected to wired network.
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday and my wireless didn't work so I searched a little and found a way to make it work; Uninstalled bcmwl-kernel-source and installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer and b43-fwcutter. And it worked. But today I accidentally pressed the "turn off wireless" button on my laptop. I obviously pressed it again and thought it would work but it doesn't. Now I find networks and stuff but I can't connect to them. It tries for awhile and then asks me to enter the password which I do (it is correct) and then it tries to connect for a few minutes again and then it asks me for the password again.

I'm having a problem to connect to the network at home via wifi, open or protected. Using ubuntu 11.04, attached are more details. I've managed to get a successful connection on an open network at work.
