Thread: the WLAN-KDE Authenthification pops up every five minutes

  1. #1

    Default the WLAN-KDE Authenthification pops up every five minutes

    good day dear opensuse-fans and developers,


    hope everything is all right and you are well.

    i struggle with some issues here:

    the WLAN-KDE Authenthification pops up every five minutes

    i run opensuse 13.1 on a notebook

    a WLAN access-authenticateion pops up - as a KDE-client-Popup

    then i have to confirm the Password for the connection - "FritzBox 7490"

    although that they are allready filled in the popup.

    funny - but true

    after confirming all that things i have to do that again in only three or four minutes.

    what is wrong here

    It's hard to guess.

    Maybe the router is giving very short dhcp lease times, and the lease is running out. Or maybe there are problems on the network causing the connection to fail.

    Have you verified that it is, in fact, the proper password/passphrase? Or maybe it is something as simple as a space in the password that is keeping the wi-fi to stay connected (although that shouldn't be the problem, because the term is passphrase (and not password), meaning that one can have spaces). I hope I made some sense.

    hi,

    in agreement with others, it looks like the lease time is set to 10 minutes,
    hence the router will start to change the ip address every 5 minutes

    on a repeater, just installed, the default lease time was set to 1 minute,
    hence it was difficult to do anything

    if your network is private and small suggest a change is made to static not dynamic
    addressing, if the network is large/public try 60 minutes and then see if others complain

    cheers

    ps. setting 'Automatialy connect to the network when it is available'
    and 'All users may connect to the network'
    should eliminate the notifications

    hello dear experts hello dear keellambert hello nrickert and all others,

    first of all many many thanks for the answers.

    guess that the issue has to do with the lease-time. ... Note: the network is private!

    in agreement with others, it looks like the lease time is set to 10 minutes,
    hence the router will start to change the ip address every 5 minutes

    on a repeater, just installed, the default lease time was set to 1 minute,

    interesting: we have two boxes in the same network

    one that is originally sending the signal (speedportbox ) and a
    second one that is just a repeater -

    the intersting thing: the first box has a good behavior - there i do not recognize the ugly behavior with the pop-ups
    but the repeater box is doing so. It causes or "sends" these pup ups.

    so i guess that i have to do some customization in this repeater - set up the lease time...

    I will do so and report all the findings
