Thread: Loose WIFI at each reboot

  1. #1

    Default Loose WIFI at each reboot

    I have just installed opensuse 12.2. Being new to opensuse (am still a linux noob) I had a few issues finding how to install
    software.

    I use a wifi connection. After each reboot the network manager cannot find my router.
    I have to use yast => network devices => network settings and select ifup.
    The network cannot be configured, so I reselect network devices => network settings and select user managed
    with Network Manager. Then Kwallet's dialog is displayed, I supply my wifi password and
    I'm good to go until the next reboot.

    The interesting thing is we have 2 wifi connections available. If I configure the second connection
    the same scenario repeats.

    After rebooting, opensuse does not find the previously configured wifi network.

    The steps are repeatable:
    1 Scan for available wifi network
    2 Configure the network
    3 Succesful connection
    4 Reboot and the network is not seen by opensuse 12.2
    4 Configure the network with ifup (fails)
    5 Select Network Manager
    6 Kwallet asks for network password (then connection established)Configure Desktop --> Global Policy Configuration and adding my user account as an administrator

    Tried this suggestion as well
    Configure Desktop --> Global Policy Configuration and adding my user account as an administrator

    henry@linux-2tfn:~> dmesg | grep firmware

    Default Re: Loose WIFI at each reboot

    I have been having the same issue with 12.2 here are the steps that seem to have fixed the issue for my system.


    12.2 network but still there

    NetworkManager with KDE seems to behave this way, unless you set the connection to be a system connection.

    Edit the connection, and check the "system connection" option. Then save the settings. If that does not immediately help, either reboot or restart the network
    Code:

    # /etc/init.d/network restart

    and see if that fixes it.

    using opensuse 12.2; KDE 4.8.4;

    While the above fix works, why is this even happening? For months my laptop booted fine and connected to the preferred access point automatically. Lately, it would see ALL the access points *except* my preferred one. Toggling the wifi on and off with the hardware switch or Fn-F2 would help it to see the preferred router (only the closest and strongest signal too.. ) so what the hey?

    That fix is one I prepared following a change in Network Manager

    I'm not sure how to indicate this is solved. But it is.
    Thanks a bunch, setting the connection to 'system connection' did the trick. It survives reboots.

    Ill have to try the above option when I get back to my laptop, but I just wanted to say this can also be resolved by unchecking and rechecking the enable wireless checkbox when you right click on the network manager in the status bar. Though if the above fix works, its a much better option than manually having to uncheck then check that box upon each reboot.

    It is definitively a problem of Knetworkmanager. I am experiencing the same problems. Knetworkmanager doesn't find my wireless, but iwlist scan finds it.. puzzled..

    Interesting
    I'm finding if I kick my Access Point it disappears and doesn't come back.
    It looks like a Bug - I'll be checking it over the next day or so. This is kde, but I have Gnome install that seems to be showing the same issue.
