Router denying (?) WLAN access from linux
For some strange reason, our router seems to let me connect to it, but disconnects me after a few seconds. This wasn't the case before. Also, after I reboot to Win7 or XP, the router still won't let me connect. The only solution to this in my case was to rename our wifi's network name and then reboot.
- the wlan card does get detected.
- wifi USED TO work flawlessly, then after a few updates or hours, something happens and then I can't connect anymore.
- card = realtek 8187b.
- linux mint 9.
- router = DIR-300
a few more specific details:
- i tried to edit a line in nsswitch.conf to "hosts: files dns" but still this doesn't solve the problem.
- blacklisted ipv6.
- same issues in almost all distros i have tried. in fedora (live), i can connect and view a few pages, but some won't open (ex. facebook).
anyone have an idea on this? o.O help would be appreciated. i already tried the search stuff :)
