I recently had this same issue with Mint 17.1 Cinnamon. I was able to fix the issue with a kernel update. My old kernel was 3.13.24 and since updating to 3.16.30, my internet connection is back up to 100% and no longer taking forever to load a page or dropping the connection. Prior to the update, my internet connection was around 83% and that was right ...

Zentyal does not use "ordinary" configuration files; your setup will be erased every time you restart the server. In order to allow for admin-made configuration options, Zentyal allows for "hooks", scripts that will get executed along the main configuration files. It isn't that complicated: if you have your wpa-supplicant already set up and working, just ...

The state that's being changed is probably in the network adapter itself. Wireless adapters especially tend to be complex programmable computers in and of themselves, and it's likely that b43 is leaving the adapter in a state where it doesn't know how to talk to wl. Beyond that, you'd need deep understanding of how these drivers work to say what exactly is ...

If the setting can wait until after the interface is up (DHCP has finished), then there are a few different ways to run a script when the interface comes up. The Debian way is to put a script in /etc/network/if-up.d/. This should work on Debian no matter what method you use to manage your interface (NetworkManager, ifupdown, etc). The interface name and a ...

Wireless Networks: wireless is disabled This indicates that no wireless network interface is available. This could be either because you're missing the appropriate driver, or because the wifi is disabled. Linux kernel 2.6.31 is from 2009, so it's possible that your driver is too old for this chip. The Arch Wiki lists 2.6.27 as the minimum kernel ...

Possible with wireshark You can use a beacon filter in wireshark like wlan.bssid==mac_address && wlan.fc.type_subtype eq 8 where mac_address is mac address of AP emitting the beacons wlan.fc.type_subtype eq 8 : This will capture all beacon frames only from this mac Also wireshark has a time column which shows you the time in seconds of a ...

In my case being signed in to Chrome was getting in the way. When I opened up an incognito window and went to a random webpage the redirection worked. I got this idea from a post on an Arch Linux thread.

ap-hotspot works for me in 14.04. Hostapd and ap-hotspot don't mix well on 14.04 so you need to downgrade hostapd. 64 bit: sudo apt-get purge hostapd cd /tmp wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/w/wpa/hostapd_1.0-3ubuntu2.1_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i hostapd*.deb sudo apt-mark hold hostapd 32 bit: sudo apt-get purge hostapd cd /tmp wget ...

You can use iw to register your hardware to a country. Some hardware cannot be changed. install wavemon to monitor strength of signal (not needed for change). apt-get install wavemon For example, to set it to the US you would bring lan down iwconfig wlan0 register to US or BO with 1000mwats of power iw reg set US iw reg set BO or change directly ...

If your system experiences a kernel panic, you wont see this in log, as interrupts aren't available anymore, so no data can be written to HDD. Basically catching a random kernel panic is tricky. Either keep you system in text mode console until the problem appears (Be sure to switch off all display energy saving mechanisms, as a suspended screen may not ...

Solved it, here's how: I connected to the public "visitor" network and renamed its connection file in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections to the name of the network I actually wanted to connect with. After doing so, I can edit the connection security settings for the target network. Saved the settings and there we go! The contents of the file in ...

I have had a similar problem on Debian before. I found a few ways to try to fix it. The first is to disable all Ethernet connections and make sure no start up script initiates any Ethernet connections. Then setup WiFi on start-up to automatically connect to your WiFi endpoint. You could try this in a start-up script: service network-manager restart ...

Solved. It turns out I didn't have the correct driver installed, I was just confused by the driver being listed in lsmod (only under the usbcore section), figured out it wasn't actually installed. facepalm

1) The command iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M fixed is inefficient[1] since Linux kernel itself invocates one of the two default rate control algorithms: minstrel (and/or minstrel_ht) PID You can verify which was chosen for your interface by checking the output of 'dmesg'. In case the algorithm is 'minstrel/minstrel_ht', to manually set the rates, do the ...
