Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disconnects Intermittently And Asks For The WEP Password Again And Again?
May 23, 2010
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.
Running 10.10 on Hp dv2000. Approx once a day wireless asks for password authentication but cannot re-connect to wireless network. I verified connection, correct password and modem & router functionality but still will not re-connect. After re-boot problem is resolved for another day or two.
I have been having a lot of problems trying to get my wireless card working. I am running ubuntu 10.04 and ever since the install, the wireless detects the network, asks me for the password, then, hangs for a while and asks me for the password again.
Its a fresh install.
Here are some outputs i got from the terminal. There are a lot of outputs i just put into a few text files.
I use Fedora 14 KDE spin, and I have a wireless network with 4 users. When I start my PC I have to enter the administrator password for the KDE wallet, and also the wireless password if I want to connect to the Internet. This is no problem for me, but I prefer not to share those passwords with the other 3 users. I selected the "Connect automatically" option in the wireless connection settings, but it still asks me for the password every time.
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'm using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to install a printer over the network which is plugged into a Windows 7 machine. I can see the workgroup fine and the computer fine on the network, but when I try to double-click on the computer (both via the nautilus and the printer setup route), it asks me for a username, workgroup and password.
I tried the account's username and password and username "Guest" with no password but neither worked. The weird thing is that when I booted my machine into Windows XP and tried to install the same printer, it never asked me for a username and password and installed just fine. Why is Samba/Ubuntu asking me for the Windows 7 password when Windows XP didn't need it?
i have an asus eeepc that i recently upgraded from ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. the wireless networking has worked great up until about 2 weeks ago. now it occasionally drops the connection (can't ping the gateway), even though the "blue bars" still say connected. my current solution is to click the bars, do a "disconnect", and then reconnect.i've ruled out the router being a problem (all 17 other wireless devices in my house remain connected), and i've ruled out a laptop hardware problem (when i dual boot into win7, i never lose my connection).
i'm new to linux (installed 9.10 back in february), but not new to computers/networking. i run a major campus lan [windows based] and have worked all aspects from the early mainframe days to client support to server admin to helpdesk - after 17 years, i'm now in management, so i've lost my edge a little... plus, being brand new to linux, i'm feeling a little lost in the troubleshooting aspect of this.i do believe that i've narrowed my problem down to "almost exactly" when this occurs. the wireless connection drops out as soon as i start to do "network intensive" stuff like watch a videos video, play a facebook flash game, or (and here's the kicker), try to run the update manager. unfortunately, this means that i have not been able to update for a few weeks now. i'm up to about 150mb worth of updates that are waiting.
Have setup using Samba a share on the documents folder. When I attempt to access it from another PC, when access is allowed to everyone, all works perfectly.However, when I allow access just to a user, on attempting to access this folder, it asks for a password but on entering the correct password it does not allow access.
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-188.8.131.52-159.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 184.108.40.206-170.2.5.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 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.
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
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.

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
I can't use synaptic. Starting it from the gui appears to make it ask for the root password (of which there is none!). If i sudo synaptic, it starts fine with the appropriate privileges.
I ran into this problem first when I used rhythmbox for the first time. It needed to install plugins for my mp3s, but I can't authenticate into synaptic. The dialogue asks for "Password for root:", where I think it should ask for "Password for $USER:"
Why is this, and what can I do about it.
PS, This is a fresh install of 10.10. When transferring my old userfiles over from my old Karmic install I had to userdel the user I used when installing, and then create another user with the same name and details. The reasons for this escape me at the moment, and no doubt were entirely of my own making, but that's what happened. Has this got something to do with it?
