View Full Version : [ubuntu] Net stops working afet a while (rt2500)

April 23rd, 2008, 01:19 AM
My network shows my wifi network using WEP (either one is fine) when it works; and shows WPA Personal when it doesn't.

Simply changing to WEP again makes my network come back.
This switch happens at random, my best guess.

I'd look for this mistake and it's solution; but this is the shortest way to specify it I can remember.

Thanks in advance for any help... or ways to allow me to help myself.
My card has a ralink chip (rt2500)

You may want to try connecting from the command line to see if the connection is more stable -- to rule out a network manager issue. There is a stick atop the networking forum how to do this.

You may also want to check you are not having a problem with interference. Wireless and cordless phones, microwave ovens, electrical appliances.

Try changing channels/frequencies to see if this improves your connection.
