Re: Wifi only temporarily connects on Asus EEE 1000HE
Your wireless can drop for other reasons aside from the driver. You can have interference on the same channel as you router; most routers are set to channel 6 by default. You might try 1 or 11. Your router might have a signal strength setting; is it as high as possible? Please see attached.
- what's the quickest way to find out if my driver is also affected, apart from the obvious effect of dropping the wireless link (I've just installed 11.04)?
You might have conflicting drivers loaded. Please open a terminal and run and post:Finally, unless someone has the exact same kernel as you, the exact same gcc version, etc., just emailing the pre-compiled version won't work. Moreover, why ask someone else to do the hard work for you? Actually, when you get down to it, it's not very hard.
I was actually surprised that the built-in version didn't work as well as the compiled from source version. I learn something surprising every day.
