    Re: Networking (wifi) issue on new computer

    Hmm.. I desperately want to try a few things with the router, but you don't control it

    As a recap, does the /etc/rc.local file still contain the change we made to it? (the "iw reg set.." command)

    Do you have any other Access-Points, hotspots near you to test the connectivity with? So that we can determine if the problem is related to this specific router or not.

    I'm really running out of ideas now and don't have much to try with the system/adapter or the driver(s).

    I wouldn't say it a "last" attempt, but for now, let's take a look at the following outputs, when a fresh connection attempt is made but fails (like reboot > disable/enable wifi > retry to connect > then run these commands) -
    Code:
    dmesg | tail -80
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist scan
    egrep -v '^#|^$' /etc/rc.local
    grep ^options /etc/modprobe.d/*
    If none of these could give us any clues, I think I'd need to take a break to collect more powerful weapon(s).

    You need nameservers for either card:
    Code:
    echo -e "nameserver 8.8.8.8\nnameserver 8.8.4.4" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf
    sudo service network-manager restart

    Re: Networking (wifi) issue on new computer

    I went back and re-added that line to rc.local, as this is a new installation of ubuntu.

    Re: Networking (wifi) issue on new computer

    Alrighty chaps - it lives!

    I decided it couldnt be a software problem, so I looked into what else it could be, we ruled out the card itself, which only really left the motherboard, by performing this search: "Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 network problems" I came across a link which seemed to describe my problems to a T - including the USB ports. http://askubuntu.com/questions/27678...k-and-usb-dont

    After enabling the required IOMMU setting in the BIOS my wifi card magically worked - HUZZAR. Although, it seems I lost access to my front panel USB ports. This is something I can live with. Thanks for all your help!

    Hmm.. I think I'm not going to forget this name now - IOMMU.

    Just yesterday we were discussing about it on IRC, where I heard about it for the first time (which makes me realize how much I have lost the touch with concurrent tech topics). It seems most people need to turn it Off to make things work, but evidently it was the opposite in your case which is not unusual either.

    In any case, it is a problem in certain motherboards, probably Gigabyte being on top, if not alone in the list. It is not a problematic technology itself, only its implementation in the BIOS of such motherboards is non-standard and buggy. Perhaps manufacturers love 'Patches over Patches' instead of standardizing things, even if it is only going to cost them once and not too much (in re-writing the BIOS and testing it).

    Anyway, I'm glad you went ahead and found the culprit yourself. Thank you so much for the feedback, it is certainly a very valuable addition to our knowledge bank !

    Please mark the thread as [SOLVED] as BB requested (by using the "Thread Tools" link above the top post on the page) to make it more useful to others.

    PS: Marking as solved doesn't close the thread, and often the conversation becomes quite interesting post fix, just means others can more easily find a fix if they're in the same place as you were.
