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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

I finally got my Wireless card working in Powerbook G4 Aluminum 1.25Ghz laptop running Debian 7.5.0 Wheezy. 1) go to /etc/apt/sources.list, add 'contrib' and 'non-free' behind every line ( it's an overkill but I don't know what I am doing ) Here is part of my file: deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.5.0 _Wheezy_ - Official powerpc DVD Binary-1 20140426-14:34]/ ...
