    Post connectivity issues with dlink dwa 131 wifi adapter

    i'm facing problems with dwa 131 wifi adapter.it was working fine until last reboot. i have gone through many threads regarding the same. most often i'm getting error with the commands they have given. i'm new to linux btw. also when i try to update through terminal, it says the given package doesnot have release note and so on.

    i'm listing the return values of some commands.

    We don't see anything alarming and fixable there. Let's dig deeper. Please post the result of:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlx
    nmcli device wifi list

    "WPA1 WPA2" is a problem in itself. WPA2 only is what should be. Please check the router settings.

    Re: connectivity issues with dlink dwa 131 wifi adapter

    First, check the settings in the router. WPA2-AES is preferred; not any WPA and WPA2 mixed mode and certainly not TKIP. Second, if your router is capable of N speeds, you may have better connectivity with a channel width of 20 MHz in the 2.4 GHz band instead of automatic 20/40 MHz, although it is likely to affect N speeds. I also have better luck with a fixed channel, either 1, 6 or 11, rather than automatic channel selection. Also, be certain the router is not set to use N speeds only; auto B, G and N is preferred. After making these changes, reboot the router.

    Then set your regulatory domain explicitly. Check yours:
    Code:
    sudo iw reg get
    If you get 00, that is a one-size-maybe-fits-all setting. Find yours here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2 Then set it temporarily:
    Code:
    sudo iw reg set IS
    Of course, substitute your country code if not Iceland. Set it permanently:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/default/crda
    Change the last line to read:
    Code:
    REGDOMAIN=IS
    Proofread carefully, save (Ctrl+o followed by Enter) and close (Ctrl+x) the text editor.

    reconfigured the router, and did everything as you said.

    sudo iw reg get
    global
    country IN: DFS-UNSET
    (2402 - 2482 @ 40), (N/A, 20), (N/A)
    (5150 - 5350 @ 160), (N/A, 23), (N/A)
    (5725 - 5875 @ 80), (N/A, 23), (N/A)

    thanks to you, its working now ! sorry for the late reply
