This is essentially Warwick's answer, just with step-by-step instructions. Create the following shell script in your home folder: check_inet.sh #!/bin/bash TMP_FILE=/tmp/inet_up # Edit this function if you want to do something besides reboot no_inet_action() { shutdown -r +1 'No internet.' } if ping -c5 google.com; then echo 1 > $TMP_FILE ...

One way would be to put an entry in root's cron that runs a script every 30 minutes. The script would test the WIFI connection, perhaps using ping, and write the result to a file in /tmp - 1 for connection exists, 0 if it doesn't. Subsequent iterations of the script would then check that file, and if it was 0, and the WIFI connection was still bad, run an ...

Grepping the drivers directory of the kernel source tree for RT5370 turns up; ./net/wireless/rt2x00/Kconfig: Supported chips: RT5370 Kconfig files are used to provide information for things like make menuconfig when configuring a kernel; this one happens to contain information for a number of Ralink PCI and USB based chipsets. From the same ...

First things first: your hostname.urtwn0 file looks good and if you had a mistake in there you'd get completely different error messages. The message urtwn0: failed loadfirmware of file urtwn-rt18192cfwT (error 2) indicates that the firmware isn't installed in the proper location: As explained in loadfirmware(9), this function returns errno style error ...

It seems that this has been a common request for at least the last five years, but progress is slow. You could always ditch Network Manager and manually control your Wi-Fi network by configuring wpa_supplicant to priorotise your network. Details here, but it seems a lot of work. It would also mean manually scanning for and configuring each new network you ...

iwlist <interface> txpower tells you that information, if device provides it. Eg; # iwlist eth0 txpower eth0 8 available transmit-powers : 5 dBm (3 mW) 7 dBm (5 mW) 9 dBm (7 mW) 11 dBm (12 mW) 13 dBm (19 mW) 15 dBm (31 mW) 17 dBm ...

The BIOS whitelist stops the laptop early in the boot process - an error message is shown similar to the ones you see when some motherboards have no keyboard or other mandatory peripheral connected. Once the laptop is past the BIOS stage and loading the OS, the whitelist is redundant. In fact, the OS will probably not be aware of it's existence and will ...

Try this from the Ask Ubuntu section: http://askubuntu.com/questions/318583/how-can-i-solve-fixed-channel-1-mon0-is-on-channel-1-issue-when-using-airo The lastest dev version has the --ignore-negative-one option.

Instead of using an USB filter, just connect the wireless network on the host operating system, and define a bridged or NAT connection in the VM configuration. On the image referenced in the comments, you have both a bridged adapter to wlan1 and an USB filter. According to the VirtualBox manual, section 3.10: "VirtualBox can allow virtual machines to ...

You indicate that your /etc/resolv.conf contains only nameserver 127.0.0.1. This means your DNS server is configured to be the local host and the local host isn't able to resolve host names. So it's one of two things: This is intentional. You have configured a DNS server on your local machine and its configuration is off somehow. You'll need to check the ...

Try going to www.realtek.com and searching for an updated driver (kernel module) for your chipset. I have an 8192 set in my notebook (Kubuntu Precise 12.04 with backports) and it had very poor wifi signal strength until I installed the custom module. (It's still not great, but it's much better than it was.) I think the one you want is the same as mine and ...

The problem you are experiencing is because your system's hostname is changing. Originally your hostname was localhost, but after connecting it becomes localhost.localdomain. This can cause problems due to either of the following: 1. hostname resolution If the new hostname (localhost.localdomain) doesn't resolve properly, processes which use IP based ...

The issue is that one of the kernel headers / interfaces changed in a recent 3.x kernel. Where a UID / GID values were originally referred to as regular integers, they are now structs with a single element. Any code relying on the older definition now will fail to compile until updated to match the new kernel headers. I'm currently experimenting with ...

I had the same question, and found the existing answers and comments here a little uninformative. After doing a little more research and asking on IRC, I found a more pragmatic answer. Broadcom historically hasn't cooperated much with efforts to open-source drivers, although it's been changing its approach recently. Because of this, there are still some ...
