View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fails to connect vostro 1720 to wireless router

Hello, I'm trying to find out why the wireless access point at work most of the time won't let me connect to the network. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on a DELL vostro 1720. The router model is D-LINK DIR-655.

lspci gives me: Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01), and I'm using Broardcom STA drivers.

If I try like 10-20 times to connect I will often finally get connected and once connected everything works fine for the rest of the day. The only router I'm having this problem with is this one.

In the log below, the last lines is a connectionattempt that succeeded and all the lines above those are several attempts that failed. It seemes like there is some kind of timeout issue but I'm not sure what and how to fix it.

The syslog for the connection attempts are (I have marked out MAC adesses and public ips with *):

I think I am having the same problem.

When I have low signal (25% to 30%), sometimes I can connect to the WLAN AP, sometimes I will be asked again and again for the password (which NetworkManager has already stored).

With exactly the same circumstances, from Windows I can connect at the first attemp, with no problems whatsoever, and not even disconnections.

Hi
I had a similar problem, connecting a Dell M6500 to a DLink DIR855.
Remembering that it was working for months until i enabled the "Guest" network in the Dlink,
i disabled that option. Now the problem is fixed for me. Don't know whether dir655 has a guest mode or not, but playing around with wireless options may help.

New user here. I have Lucid, a Netgear WNDA3100 USB wireless adapter, a D-link router, and I have run into this same roadblock. Ndiswrapper works great; a list of networks is displayed, and it sees my network and has good connectivity, but it always times out during authentication. The same adapter connects instantly in windows under the same circumstances.

I entered the network's WPA code using Network Manager.
In syslog, this block is repeated several times (starred out address manually):

I have tried resetting the modem/router, didn't work.
I'd rather not mess with the router's configuration just yet. I want to try everything else first.
Any help is appreciated.
