Wifi dropping with out recovery (Solved)
« on: April 02, 2016, 10:29:42 pm »
This I am sorry to say is a fresh install on my laptop. That fact is a grievous note for me... Anyway my Wifi that other seems to work perfectly drops at random and I can not recover it with out restart. The Wifi works great and automatically on login. So I have no idea why it disconnects like it does. And also not having attempted to hack the suspend/ resume on this instance further can not see why it fails at all.

Code: [Select]
*** ~ $ inxi -n
Network:   Card-1: Ralink RT2500 Wireless 802.11bg driver: rt2500pci
           IF: wlan0 state: up mac: 00:11:09:ae:f5:02
           Card-2: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet driver: sis900
           IF: eth0 state: down mac: 00:0c:76:f6:b7:5c
*** ~ $ inxi -M
Machine:   System: AVERATEC product: 6240 Series version: 0101
           Mobo: N/A model: N/A Bios: American Megatrends version: A1011SMS V1.10 12/06/04 date: 12/06/2004


At least I haven't done anything really stupid with it yet. Regards.

You might want to give WiCD a go instead of networkmanager

Do you need help with this .. if so please post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove -s network-manager

Okay, first let's grab what you'll need to reinstall networkmanager if things go wrong
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/reinstall-nm
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/reinstall-nm
then
Code: [Select]
apt-get download network-manager network-manager-gnome
if that lot went without error, carry on below
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install wicd-gtk python-wicd wicd-daemon
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove network-manager network-manager-gnome
now try connecting with wicd (if there's no system tray icon for wicd yet, you may need to start it from the menu, or reboot)



to undo
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge wicd-gtk python-wicd wicd-daemon
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/reinstall-nm
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
then if necessary reboot.

It says "to undo" if you want to go back to how it was before.

Ok, that should have been obvious. The wicd applications seem to be working fine.
