    unstable WLAN on HP 650 notebook (with driver rt2800pci)

    Hello,

    the wireless network connection of my HP 650 notebook is very unstable. I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 but the network was unstable as well with 12.04 (and even with the preinstalled SUSE Linux Enterprise 11).

    Here's some useful information about my system (I hope):
    Code:
    nm-tool
    
    NetworkManager Tool
    
    State: connected (global)
    
    - Device: wlan0  [Lagidium-viscacia 1] -----------------------------------------
      Type:              802.11 WiFi
      Driver:            rt2800pci
      State:             connected
      Default:           yes
      HW Address:        84:4B:F5:1A:3C:D0
    
      Capabilities:
        Speed:           54 Mb/s

    I followed the instructions of this tutorial (http://michael-peeters.blogspot.de/2...er-ubuntu.html) until I get some problems at step 5 (dowloaded the drive here: http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_supp...se.php?sn=5018).

    I don't understand why this error in the last line occures:

    Has anybody an idea what to do? I really need to get the wireless connection running.

    Thanks for your suggestions in advance!

    Re: unstable WLAN on HP 650 notebook (with driver rt2800pci)

    BUMP,
    Same problem here, anyone with any tip to resolve this issue?

    I also tried two another USB wlan cards and the issue was stiil same, wlan connection is slowing down in the time and even through i have succifient signal, after some time it begins to drop pings and lost connection .... but - wifi icion is still measuring signal and saying to me that i am connected. Weird :-/
    At first i was suspecting my wifi router, TPLINK TL-WR1043ND, but my another W7 HP's lap. connection was OK, as well as connection on my seven-years-old ubuntu 12.04 running HP lap. with i2200 wlan was OK.
    I simply checked both laptops at the time when the connection at HP650 was lost.

    So, i think its WPA / firmware / driver / kernel issue on this HW, but, i dont know how i can prove it :-/

    I plan to borrow & try different pci express wlan card. We wiil see


    I will appreciate any tip pointing me to resolve this issue.

    I own an HP650 which came with preinstalled SUSE Linux Enterprise Novell.
    The wireless card on this laptop is the Ralink 539a. The driver/module for this wlan card loaded by the kernel is the rt2800pci. The problem ofcourse is that by default they do not work or if they work its unstable and practicly unusable. After reading many threads and following a lot of different lines to build the 2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO the result was never successful failing either at the build with >make returning an error for Antenna being changed to y for yes or the driver not starting the wlan0 interface if the Antenna switch remains n for off.
    Later I found a bug report and exchange specificly for the Ralink 539a where the solution to the problem was finallzy found. Essentially
    1. Download latest Compat-Wireless drivers from http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Do...table_releases
    2. Unpack to a directory
    3. cd to directory
    4. sudo make
    5. sudo make install
    6 reboot your computer
    7. make sure the wireless card light/led is on by using the wireless on/off button....
    That did it for me. A note I also read is that any time the kernel or drivers are updated the old rt2800pci driver/module gets unpacked and thus the wireless gets back to not working .... So the same procedure of make and make install to overwrite with the compat-wireless drivers that work is to be done...
    Good luck

    I have the same problem on my HP 650 (Pentium 2020M) that was shipped with Ubuntu by HP. After an hour or two the wireless disconnects from my network, and won't reconnect, until wireless networking is toggled off and on.

    Dmesg shows that I have a rt3290, supported with driver rt2x00.

    It may be of use to you to know that Fedora 19 beta (you can try a livecd/usb) does not exhibit the instability.

    I find it curious that although this machine is certified by Canonical, and OEM-installed by HP, no one seems to have thoroughly tested the wireless connectivity.

    [SOLUTION] Re: unstable WLAN on HP 650 notebook (with driver rt2800pci)

    Hi,

    Had the same problem for 3 days trying different solutions.
    None of it worked or was unstable.
    That happened after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10.
    At the end I just downloaded the vanilla 13.12 kernel from kernel.org, unpacked it to /usr/src and created dpkgs without modifying or patching anything.
    Guess what - it worked as charm!
    That actually cost me money, because in my most despaired time during this period I gave up once and went to the computer shop and bought tp-link usb wifi dongle with atheros chipset (ath9k), which also didn't work.
    Well, after installing the brand new and shiny 13.12 kernel, crossing fingers and reboot - EVERYTHING worked as expected, I mean everything - wifi, bluetooth, ethernet lan, wifi usb dongle.
    No more binary blobs required, no patching and praying.
    I decided to put that kernel as held with aptitude to prevent future problems, but still able to update the system.
    Hope this will help somebody.
