    BCM4311 Dropping Connection To Router

    This wireless card will not remain connected to my router. I am going to use this laptop as a ip camera security server.

    When it boots up I can connect to it via ssh for about 10 minutes or less and then it looses connection to the router.


    Netgear Rangemax Wireless-N 150

    Hardware :

    Compaq Presario C700

    # ip a

    3: wlp1s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 00:1a:73:90:e6:df brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global wlp1s0
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::21a:73ff:fe90:e6df/64 scope link
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    This may be a hard-wired TTL (Time To Live) connection setting for the router if it doesn't get any activity from you (the client system). It may be a settable option that you can disable.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    The words server and wireless do not go well together.
