Turning network interfaces down does not in general cause TCP connections to terminate. That's the way TCP/IP is designed. The idea is that links that go down should not cause the upper layers to give up on connections because the problem might be transient and go away quickly, or routing protocols may promptly install alternate routes and heal the network ...

Anti-climactic conclusion: Wound up being the router was going bad. Started disconnecting other computers on the network for no reason. Replacing it solved everything.

Answering my own question! Found the solution from comptb.cects.com/bcm4311-mint16-nowireless-nointernet, click on it for details! Here is a solution that worked form me! Steps: Download b43-fwcutter for your architecture (bottom of page) from http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/b43-fwcutter. In this case, b43-fwcutter_013-2_amd64.deb was used, but an ...

(Still can't comment) Is it still working or no? From the updates and edits I'm unsure which parts of your original question remain unanswered. Let us know if you can and glad to have helped you get it running.

According to this kernel.org page on wireless drivers; yes you have the right driver! Whether or not a newer version (than what your distro supplies) would be better or not will depend... I have had newer versions of drivers work better but I have also had newer version work worse... So the best answer to that question IMO is another question: "Does it work ...

In the end this was quite straightforward, thanks to help from Dbo. I can't confirm if wpa_supplicant was necessary for this working, as I had already installed it by the time this started working (aptitude install wpasupplicant). This is what I did: 1. sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces Edit the WiFi Example part, removing comments Add the allow-hotplug ...

According to your link the filename of the driver should be mt7601Usta.ko (.ko is the extension for kernel modules). Kernel modules are usually installed in /lib/modules/$(uname -r), so use find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -name mt7601Usta.ko then sudo rm to delete it if you're sure it is the right module (or mv to move it out from the modules tree so it won't ...

In order to configure wpa_supplicant to connect to a specific network: sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf Have the file content look something like: ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev update_config=1 network={ ssid="network-name" psk="network-password" proto=RSN key_mgmt=WPA-PSK pairwise=CCMP TKIP ...

You usually have a button or switch on your wifi adapter which can be used to forcibly stop the signal. There is nothing you can do in software to change that, only observe it (but note that there are some drivers which do not observe it correctly, and always generate one result); you need to press the button or flip the switch.

You don't mention your chipset, driver, kernel and airmon-ng version, which would have made it easier to help you. Not all drivers create mon0 for monitor mode, some enable it on the original interface (wlan0 in your case). Run airmon-ng check to check the status. To confirm that your card is in monitor mode, run the command iwconfig. You can then confirm ...

NOTE: I'm on Fedora 20 but the issue would be the same here, only the pathing and Linux kernel version numbers are different. When I downloaded and attempted to run the install script, bash ./install.sh I noticed this error message as well. make: *** /lib/modules/3.16.3-200.fc20.x86_64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. The script isn't equipped ...

Can you please provide detailed info e.g. list of commands that you tried, on which interface are you listening etc.

The Wiki's Wireless page .. You must have network from somewhere Ethernet I suppose as @HalosGhost mentioned, when in doubt read the wiki. You must be precise with systemd anyways and all CLI. If you have problems we need specifics and logs. Arch is very hands-on but you can do it if you try and want to. The documentation is there.

Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u3 x86_64 GNU/Linux 867Mbps 802.11ac Intel 7260 card, Dual band 5GHz + 2.4GHz Wireless 2x2 AC + Bluetooth4.0 Your kernel is too old. http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi says "IntelĀ® Wireless 7260 (3.10)", so you'll need at least Linux 3.10.

Just an idea: sometimes when switching between wifi and ethernet (or back), it helps on my system to reset the corresponding service, as follows. Switch to wifi: sudo systemctl restart netctl-auto@wlp2s0.service Switch to ethernet: sudo systemctl restart dhcpcd@enp0s25.service

After the commands above, restarting the hostapd did the trick. sudo service hostapd restart Now the internal wifi works as an access point and the usb dongle is connected to another access point providing internet connection.

This is what you need to do, as using 4 accounts will cost you extra, cannot be used at the same time, and may be illegal in your AUP anyway. Disconnect All Computers from the Internet. Remove All PPPoE Connection Software from all computers. Find the Ethernet Cable that came with your Router. Disconnect the DSL Cable from the DSL Port Disconnect the Power ...

It doesn't sound like 'bridging' is what you're looking for, it sounds like you want your Pi to act as an access point and share the internet it sees on wlan0 via a new SSID on wlan1. See this guide for details on how to set that up: http://www.maketecheasier.com/set-up-raspberry-pi-as-wireless-access-point/

There is Danijel J's two options are good, but there is also a 3rd option if you have this working via the 'standard Ubuntu tool' using nmcli, which should already be installed at /usr/bin/nmcli. First, run nmcli c This will list your connections, with the first column being the SSID, and the second column being the UUID of the connection. Copy the UUID ...

Install wpa_supplicant and you have a nice software for all of your Wireless needs. You can then use wpa_cli command to access and set your network interactively. there is also a number of 3rd party software available acting as a GTK+ or QT GUI for wpa_supplicant if you want to go gui at anytime. Also you could set the connection configuration in ...

Restricting the WLAN connections to known MAC addresses allows only connections from WLAN lients that have a defined MAC address... This helps only a lttle bit as a MAC address can be spoofed. A help in your case is difficult as you say that you desktop machine is under attack. The question is: Where does the attack originate? If the attack originates ...

How about iwgetid? The iwgetid(8) man page says: iwgetid is used to find out the NWID, ESSID or AP/Cell Address of the wireless network that is currently used.

This may work: /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 | grep ESSID

Not much to go on here. I'll take pot shots. Do you have the right drivers for your hardware? Wifi and ethernet are two differant things. What exactly do you mean by unstable? Do you use dhcpcd for ethernet? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network#Troubleshooting
