Seems like it's your router to me unless you have tried others, but I dont own that card so I cannot help test if it is that.
Same problem here ath9k + rtl8187
This happens on WEP secured APs.
You are still associated but gateway doesn't respond at all after few seconds. When you reconnect same scenario occurs.
Tried to play with RTS threshold, RTS retry limit, Fragmentation threshold, txpower , wifi mode nothing works
This happens when you are connecting manually using iwconfig or wicd
BT4 R2 / BT5-32kde
When i try to connect to the same AP using Windows link is rocksolid stable....
dmesg doesn't output anything suspicous..
Is there any way how to enable debug tracing in wireless drivers?
THX and sorry for my english
Im having the same problem with my internet connection here......im using a belkin F5D7050gb wireless card......everything else is running fine except for my internet connection getting disconnected every 10-15 minutes.......i hope someone can find a solution for this.
no luck with any of the suggestions here.
have both ath5k and rtl8187 , tried with numerous APs, connection stops responding after a minute or two
continuous traffic sometimes helps make it last
wicd still shows connected, but the link just becomes unresponsive. disconnect/reconnect fixes it temporarily
backtrack5 with all updates (via apt-get)
wicd 1.7.0 bzr-r552
at system startup, wicd-daemon.py, wicd/monitor/daemon/monitor.py, wpa_supplicant, dhclient are all running
some interesting errors relating to wicd being reported in /var/log/pm-suspend.log (I have no interest in suspend/resume, how can I disable this?)
just rebooted, started x, connected via wicd, ping'd google for 3 min, stopped, waited 10 sec, tried again. dead.
how can i turn up the logging level to see what's happening?
btw, the captchas are ****ing irritating. took me 10 refreshes until there was one i could (barely) pick the characters out
The problem isn't your WiFi cards but wicd itself, it's probably trying to switch to your ethernet connection which isn't available causing you to get disconnected from your wireless connection.
Switch to nm-applet and the problem will go away.
You might have to fix nm-applet as well.. if you come across any problems try this..Code:
apt-get install network-manager-gnome NetworkManager
killall -9 nm-system-settings
And run nm-applet again.
Hope this helps!
I'm having the same problem described.
I installed nm but when I type nm-applet to run it I get the error:
An instance of nm-applet is already running.
** (nm-applet:4539): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager.
I don't get a gui or anything when I restart the computer and in my System>Preferences>Startup Applications, Network Manager is added.
Any help would be appreciated!
Same problem, bt5r3, intel centrino advanced-N + wimax 6250 , wait for answer
