    Default Int. WiFi and 3G

    My WiFi has started to play-up.
    I can sometimes connect, but it only lasts for a short time, other times I can't connect at all. I have noticed that the KDE WiFi widget will have the red "slashed" circle symbol and every couple of seconds flash to the red X symbol.
    I have uninstalled the plasmoid and installed the networkmanager, but I can still only connect very rarely. I'm also having trouble with my 3G modem, but that might be a different problem.
    The only thing I can that happened between working wifi and not is a kernel security patch. But, with my track record, it could have been me.
    I have also tried connecting with the traditional method, but that's not connecting either for some reason.

    Default Re: Int. WiFi and 3G

    You should report that microcode error on the mailing list
    linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org. I know that the Intel group has recently
    published new firmware, but I have no Intel devices and do not keep up with the
    details.

    Ok I will do that. What other info should I give them?
    Can I just email them the above information?

    The stuff in your first posting plus the output of uname -r. They won't know
    that you are using openSUSE so they need to know the kernel version. I am
    assuming that your driver is the standard one, not one from compat-wireless.

    Question Re: Int. WiFi and 3G

    Could it be that the
    Intel® WiFi Link 5100
    devices have all the same numeric ID
    8086:4232
    (apart from the subsystems)
    but that there are although technical differences
    (especially if it comes to 802.11 Draft-N)?

    See:

    * Intel® WiFi Link 5100 product brief
    with

    If so it may make sense to add to the bugreport also data that includes also the ID of the subsystem like according paragraph of the output of
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk
    or of
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -A2 -i net
    ?

    Just my amateurish guessing...

    Default Re: Int. WiFi and 3G

    I am using the standard drivers as far as I know.
    Its odd that it can sometimes work for a short amount of time. Last night I had the best run out of it for a few days. It conneced for about 15min. Then I was unable to connect again.
    Are we leaning towards the kernel update or excessive user headspace (me) being the problem?
