    wireless and wired connection issue

    The issue is I have to constantly switch between the two wireless networks on campus - very annoying. The connection will still be there, but it will stop connecting to the servers. This is better than before, when I couldn't even connect to the internet. I also cannot connect via ethernet now and the option 'Auto Ethernet' is not available in the network menu.

    I am running 12.10 on a Toshiba satellite C855. I already installed the correct driver for my realtek card, but this particular issue started when I updated my kernel to get rid of the apport error. The kernel is 3.8.1-030801-generic (which is not an ubuntu kernel... even though the link I got it from was an ubuntu website). Here are the instructions I followed: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2013/03/...-ubuntu-12-10/

    Everything else is working fine. As far as I can tell it's only the wirelss/wired issue that is effecting my usage. Would this issue be solved by changing kernel to an ubuntu kernel? And if so, how would I do that?

    Re: wireless and wired connection issue

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back, click on the paper clip and attach the netinfo.txt file.

    That looks like an ubuntu kernel to me on that site.

    Thanks

    I have the wireless script. It's not not in the correct file format though. What type does it need to be to upload? and how do I convert it?

    Hi go into your home folder and post the file named netinfo.text you actually posted the script.
    Thanks

    Re: wireless and wired connection issue

    I started reading ubuntu for non-geeks 2nd edition... and I realized I should have chosen the amd64 files. Especially since I'm running 12.10 64-bit... I'll let you know if it fixes the problem

    Re: wireless and wired connection issue

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    Used that guy and removed the all.deb file. Now gonna try it again with the amd64.deb files

    I also reread the names of the .deb file and I realized I have 4 different files - one is not repeated. So I'm keeping them both, but paying closer attention to the order I am installing them.

    It looks like it worked so far... I am rebooting now.
