My router provides 2 frequency-band connection services to accomodate different clients. On my desktop I can use either one because my usb transceiver can handle either one. On my (older) laptop I can only use the inferior type (don’t know their technical properties off-hand, only the names that I gave them).
kWallet is installed (only because I cannot NOT install it), don’t know if I ever gave it a password. I by far prefer typing passwords in from memory and trusting nothing ever to any form of storage, much less any concentrated form of storage.
When I have Yast doing an update with a list of downloads to eat its way thorough I OFTEN end up in a situation where the downloads just stop in a subtle manner, not always hinting with “will retry in X seconds”. At such times the interrupted download usually resumes as soon as I cycle the router connection to the other service, works for a while, then I have to cycle again.
Do I have an OS-level problem, a repo server issue, or what? I have no idea but it’s a real pain because I might start an update, go to bed, and come back in the morning with 5 of 1000 files downloaded before everything halted.
