Internet connection disconnect

Post#1 by brokenman » 02 Apr 2011, 10:16

Each time i connect to my network, i am disconnected around 3 minutes after connecting. After reconnecting again i stay connected indefinitely. It makes no difference if i use wicd or any other method. I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

Maybe, your wireless network is "corrupted" , Try to reset your box , and try to reset the settings on your computer.

I've reset the box many times. How do you have a corrupt wireless network? Havn't tried any other distro. I guess i will figure it out when i move. If it follows me it is the wireless card or OS.

Thanks

Example:
You can have a currupted wireless when someone trying to crack your wireless key (WEP/WPA/WPA2) , he will make a big cao in internet box (same a DDoS Attack) , and the wireless network will be unstable.

I had experienced disconnections with kwifimanager in Porteus 09. Now with wicd no more. Fathom's script in V09 was also very stable.
I think your ISP tests every -say 3 minutes- if you are connected and active; if you are not, they disconnect you. But if your client feels the test and answers with a ping or so, you won't be disconnected. That way your ISP frees dynamic connections to attend other user's requests.

Cheers!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
