    PEAP/MSCHAPv2 wifi connection problems

    I've been searching the net for weeks and still can't find an answer or work around for this:

    When trying to connect to my university's wifi, or eduroam, I can connect for a few minutes, usually a max of five, then the connection shuts down and I'm booted off the network and cannot reconnect. When it was connected, I tried pinging a few websites, and it is connected, but then abruptly stops.

    As usually, the uni's IT department is useless with linux. I use a Broadcom 43xx card, with the STA driver. I've tried it without the driver as well and same problem, running 12.04. The same problem arises when I switch and use the gnome-shell as well.

    I've tried a lot of things, I'm more than willing to retry or change any configuration, really, anything. I hate to say it, but this is a make or break thing for me on Ubuntu, and any other university student as well, I suspect. Does anyone know where the issue lies and/or how to fix it?

    EDIT: A set-up a wifi tether through my Galaxy S2 and the same situation occurs, with the exception that the connection lasts longer, approximately 20 mins each.

    Are you using 802.11n? I'm having similar problems and after searching around for a while, it seems that it could be a problem with 802.11n. I would recommend trying to disable 802.11n on your wireless card, typically done using a kernel module configuration file in /etc/modprobe.d.
