I'm having a wifi issue also on this laptop. It's very frustrating to see this and have no fix.


It's been a while since the upgrade to 11.4 and it's not so nice to know that something basic as a wifi connection that should just work out of the box it's not actually working. The network manager says the connection is active, but it's not working at all.
Reconnecting the wifi connection makes the internet work again, but it's just a matter of minutes or seconds before I have to do this operation again.

I have changed the router encryption to none (I've lowered security by using only the MAC filter) and there is no difference, it's showing that I'm connected to the router, but the internet is not working at all.

I've just tried disabling the IPv6 and the bug is still here.

I tested the connection with this script:

The results for both the working wifi and the one not working (but showed by the network manager as connected) here:

http://goo.gl/sdgwL (wifi not working)

I would allow some good willing specialist to debug this on my computer or any other way he/she suggests. If there is anyone interested in fixing this nasty bug, please send me an email on florin [at] drumliber [dot] ro

PS: I'm using a laptop (Toshiba Satellite C650 with Atheros wifi card and wifi under Windows 7 work perfectly.
