Hi i have a Hp g62 laptop running ubuntu 11.04. I can connect to wireless but after about 5 minutes or so I no longer can surf the internet or download anything. It still says that i am connected but it seems like im not. If anyone can help i would gladly appreciate it as i am a student and need internet to complete assignments.

Thank you,

Louie

Are you running an Intel card with iwlagn driver? Post results here I have same machine
running intel iwlagn driver if same can help you.

lspci -kCopy and paste the Network card with driver here even if not Intel with iwlagn driver, have good users in Networking and wireless.

#This below is the card and driver we are interested in: I have read some threads where
upgrading the kernel to 3.0 and up will do the trick which is very easy to do.

#First we will bump this up to the front and see if any user knows the driver
and what the fix is, in case there is one.

If any user out there knows this card and driver running Natty please jump in.

yungballla6,
We will give this a good hour or so to see if a user pops in knowing your card and driver.
IN the mean time if you need to stop and start network without rebooting use below.

sudo service network-manager stop
sudo service network-manager startUse the above two pieces of code in a terminal to stop and start network-manager
if any problem can also use below to restart network-manager:

sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart

My wireless dropped before i could read your last comment so i rebooted (because this brings wireless back for about 5-30mins before its lost again). I did what you said by starting and stopping NM. Usually when my wireless stops working I try to disconnect and reconnect but I can never reconnect after disconnecting. This is only after my wirless stops.

Hopefully we get this fixed I see from looking around you have had this problem a while.
Try these 3 if you cannot stop then start network manager with code I gave you.

sudo service network-manager stop

sudo rm /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state

sudo service network-manager start
That is all I got on starting and stopping network-manager:

#Let us see if anyone has got anything on your card and driver.

O.K. will be around, there will be a way to fix this. I see you have been trying since May of
this year.

Yes, I thought I found a fix for my problem by updating the realtekdriver, but the problem still persists. Someone must have a fix.

Download 4 items already in .deb so just have to click on and will install thru Ubuntu Software center.
Here is link to module-init-tools 3.13
Under Builds choose your 32 or 64 bit whichever you use. And then in lower
left hand corner of next page will see a .deb download it.
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/module-init-tools/3.13-1ubuntu1

Now next I have a link below for kernel 3.0.1 choose;
all.deb
headers in your 32 or 64 bit
image in your 32 or 64 bit
Download them and then click on them in that order after download and Ubuntu software
center will install them.
Now reboot into 3.0.1 kernel and hopefully kernel driver will work for your card.
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.0.1-oneiric/ (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/%7Ekernel-ppa/mainline/v3.0.1-oneiric/)

#If have any trouble with installing let me know and then of course let us know if it works fine. There
will be a lot of users could use a fix for this Card and Driver.
#You have your other kernels still installed as fallback kernels but I do have 3 installs of
Natty using this kernel so I am in practice here not in Theory.

If all stays well please marked as Solved in Thread tools so others may benefit.
Hopefully the 3.0.1 kernel has done the trick, we will know soon. Enjoy your Ubuntu.

The problem with the wireless also, is still here.

This is an old thread with outdated info.

I would suggest starting a new thread and giving as much info as possible (describe the problem, attach screenshots if possible and also state version of Ubuntu etc.)

Thread closed.
