    Re: ASUS 1215p wifi keeps failing

    Thanks, it just failed again now so had to restart the computer. Will try that next time it fails.

    No, I changed the channel to 1 as suggested in the above guide.

    If the script doesn't work, maybe I'll have to upgrade to 16.04?

    Maybe removing then reinserting the Broadcom module might work.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r brcmsmac
    sudo modprobe brcmsmac

    Based on the wireless script results, I would have recommended channel 11, but those other APs may have switched channels

    Thanks for the hint. Will try that and the other command next time the wifi blows up.

    Re: ASUS 1215p wifi keeps failing

    I tried those commands:

    Code:
    systemctl restart network-manager.service
    
    sudo modprobe -r brcmsmac
    sudo modprobe brcmsmac
    But unfortunately they were unable to restart the wireless module. All they did after running them a few times in a few different orders was to close the nm-tray programme and I couldn't work out a way to load it up again. There may be a terminal command I could use, but not sure what it was and since the machine couldn't get on the net, I couldn't look it up.

    Does anyone know some other commands I might try.

    The error seems to occur more frequently when the machine is suspended (lid closed).

    This command works:

    Code:
    sudo service network-manager restart
    So will just use that.
