wireless card or rounter occasionally doesn't work
Most of the time, my wireless connection works just fine, but every once in a while, gets no response from the router. The only solution seems to be to boot up windows, get it running with the Linksys software, reboot, and start up linux again. Not a good solution if I ever want to kick Bill Gates off my machine forever!
Anyone seen this or know how to troubleshoot it further? Reboots of linux don't work, rerunning
also doesn't work.
modprobe -v ndiswrapper; iwconfig wlan0 essid "RouterName"; dhcpcd -d -t 10 wlan0
Here is, I believe, all the relevant information on my system:
I set things up exactly as outlined in the tutorial on this site (http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...rk-linux.html).
Linksys WMP54GS wireless card
Westell A90-327W15-06 DSL modem/router
FC4 on an old i686
/var/log/dhcpcd.log when it doesn't work:
$ /sbin/modprobe -l | grep ndiswrapper
$ /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
wmp54gsa driver present, hardware present
/var/log/dhcpcd.log when it does work:
