View Full Version : [all variants] Wireless rate resets to 1M after resume from hibernate

June 21st, 2008, 04:17 AM
So I have the typical issue that my wireless rate is set at 1M on boot. I have fixed this by putting "post-up iwconfg wlan0 rate 54M" in /etc/network/interfaces. The problem I have now is that I like to use hibernate with this laptop and after coming out of hibernate it resets to 1M. I can fix it with the iwconfig command, but it's annoying and seemingly unnecessary.

Is there a way to set the rate to 54M automatically after coming out of Hibernate?

Aren't there scripts under /etc/acpi/resume.d that get run when the session is resumed? Try adding a line to 62-ifup.sh & see if that helps. Just a stab in the dark!

P.s. Thanks for sharing the post-up iwconfig trick, it helped with my 1Mb/s wifi startup speed! :)
