View Full Version : [ubuntu] Connection drops after 20 minutes to an hour

November 6th, 2008, 07:20 PM
I'm running ubuntu 8.04 and I'm using ndiswrapper for my wireless card. I'm using, unfortunately, a Sony VGN-NR110E laptop.

Sometimes it only takes about 20 minutes and my connection will drop. Other times my connection will last for up to about a hour and a half However, it will still pick up wireless networks and it will show full connection strength in the toolbar.

I have tried doing:

/etc/init.d/networking restart

in terminal, however, it does nothing. I have also tried force-reload, start, and stopping, but neither of these have been successful at bringing my connection back up.

I know its not the router I'm connecting to at home, because it happens at school and Starbucks as well.

Any help is greatly appreciated. =]
