    Re: Wifi connects, can't ping router or external, since 12.04

    I was able to disable the 11n mode and now the wireless works. Interestingly, after rebooting the wireless still worked, even though the disabling did not persist. This is beginning to feel like a router issue.

    Re: Wifi connects, can't ping router or external, since 12.04

    Hi m0116815, please do:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
    Add one line:
    Code:
    options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1
    Then:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/pm/power.d/wireless
    (this will create or edit a configuration file that will override the default powermanagement behavior) and enter the following:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 power off
    above exit0, then save gedit, close and reboot.
    Thanks

    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    does it connect now? this is just for testing so do not reboot if it works we will need to make it permanent.
    Thanks
    thank you so much to user RobertSwipe. I am running lubuntu 12.04 and was having the same irritating problem! I tried all manner of things, turns out it was not a problem with dns as many other threads led me to believe - your commands worked perfectly. Could you explain why they worked? what is 11n_disable=1?

    Hi, it disables N speed because some drivers do not handle N speed well.
    Thanks

    Have had the same problem with an Acer Aspire One D255 N550 using iwlwifi with a Draytek 2820 router. I guess there is a bug with the driver someplace.

    The odd thing is that everything looked OK apart from the ping to a local IP address which just sits there and does nothing.

    Changing the particular router to just 'b/g' and no 'n' solved it for me in the short term.

    Re: Wifi connects, can't ping router or external, since 12.04

    Hi,

    I am having the same issue, i tried the last suggestion and it has improved my situation, now I can ping my router and other devices connected to the same router but still have no access to the internet or cant ping ip's outside my network.

    Any one can help please?
