[SOLVED] On _each_ cold boot of router, have to save wirelss settings for SSID to dis
My wireless is working fine in both Mandriva and Ubuntu. But I have noticed a strange behaviour of my router. Don't know if that is normal.
The issue is, wireless will be working fine. But if I power off and then power on my router (I usually keep it powered off when not using), no matter how many times I refresh, the SSID does not get displayed on the Network Manager. If I try to make a 'New Connection' then also it does not work. Both ways I cannot connect. I *have* to use wired connection to login to my router, go to wireless configuration page and (atleast) click on 'Save/Apply' button. I don't have to do any changes to the settings; all I have to do is to click on 'Save/Apply' button! Only then the SSID is displayed on the Network manager. Then I can connect and there will be no issues.
This happens for _every_ cold boot, in _every_ distro I have tried-Mandriva, Ubuntu and openSUSE. So, its not related to distros I guess. I don't have windows so can't verify there. Mostly related to the router. (Btw, its a UTStarcom WA3002G4 model provided by BSNL for DataOne connection.)
Is this normal? If not what is the remedy?
Same Problem on Windows XP
I would like to confirm that the same problem as Saivin reported is on Windows XP as well . And looks like something to do with WA3002G4 itself .
Because if you make the wireless "open" without any secure authentification then clearly after the switch off/on of the WA3002G4 and Laptop then it detects the modem and this problem is not there .
The moment I set WPA-PSK and a secure key on the modem this problem surfaces .I got this modem around 4 days back and took time to finalize the observations .
Please help me to know as to if you fiound what the solution is .
Thanks in Advance !!
