    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    Hmmm. We don't see it drop and reconnect. Can you wait until it does a few times and try again? We'll look for timestamps later than 30.368.

    If you temporarily turn off N speeds in the router, is there any change? Is encryption AES or the dreaded TKIP?

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation

    Hi

    It never did reconnect by itself, just drop.



    iw reg get:Country GB: (2402 - 2482 @ 40), (N/A, 20)
    (5170 - 5250 @ 40), (N/A, 20)
    (5250 - 5330 @ 40), (N/A, 20), DFS
    (5490 - 5710 @ 40), (N/A, 27), DFS

    Encryption is AES

    What do you mean n-speed? Wireless mode? I can select "auto", "legacy" or "n-only". I also have a b/g protection feature.

    I will play around a bit with the different settings. I unchecked b/g protection and set bw to 20MHz (before it was 20/40) and now it has been working for quite a while... so it looks promising. Still I don't understand why...

    What annoys me bigtime is that it is an ASUS router I have (DSL-N55U) and I bought them at the same time from the same place, so I just assumed they would be compatible...

    I'm sure they are compatible. However, the driver in question, rtl8192ce, is pretty tricky and I doubt it has been tested and refined to the extent that the Windows driver has. I am encouraged by the fact that the device seems to be working better with 40 mHz turned off. That's obviously not the best solution, but it at least gets you working until a better driver comes along.
    iw reg get:Country GB: (2402 - 2482 @ 40), (N/A, 20)
    (5170 - 5250 @ 40), (N/A, 20)
    (5250 - 5330 @ 40), (N/A, 20), DFS
    (5490 - 5710 @ 40), (N/A, 27), DFS
    It appears a proper country code is being set.

    There isn't a better way, unfortunately. I have been hoping for a graphical tool called 'fix my wireless,' but so far, the subject is too complex and too fast moving to be able to figure out that tool! It seems like new devices and newer versions of old devices come out every day!

    If you'd like to proceed, let's gather some information. I will explain every step carefully as we go along. First, open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+t. We want to list all the PCI devices and get some numerical details:
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    Pick out your wireless device and post the result here. It may identify itself as a Realtek wireless adapter, since they supply the chips to Asus. Post what you found here.

    Next we need to know which Ubuntu version you have installed:
    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    Finally, 'i have had no luck' covers a lot of ground. What, exactly, are your symptoms?

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation

    hi chili555 and thanks for getting back to me By me having no luck i meant that everything i have found online has been of no help to me or it's just over my head and i can't understand it anyways ;p

    after imputing lspci -nn i got this...
    30:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8192CE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:8178] (rev 01)

    i am running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.... this network adapter worked in everything from 13.04 backwards, but not in 13.10 or 14.04

    symptoms are that it shows it's connected but there is no actual connection

    sorry for the late reply and cheers,
    Forest

    Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8192CE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:8178] (rev 01)
    I assume the driver being loaded is rtl8192ce; confirm:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep rtl8
    Is an actual wireless interface created, ideally wlan0?
    Code:
    iwconfig
    When Network Manager confirms that you are connected, do you get an IP address?
    Code:
    nm-tool
    Can you ping?
    Code:
    ping -c3 8.8.8.8
    Thanks.

    Wow! Everything looks wonderful right up to the ping! How about the router?
