Lubuntu Wireless Problem - Disconnection

Postby amjjawad » Sat May 11, 2013 11:16 pm


Isn't it funny that the very first topic on the Technical Support Forum for Lubuntu is made by me? :D

I'm glad that Wild Man is on broad ;)

Ok, it does not matter what release of Lubuntu I use, it seems that the Wireless Issue has been a pain in the neck. Lubuntu 12.04, 12.10, and 13.04, all of these releases have the same issue, more or less frequent but still have it.

       resources: irq:43 memory:fdfff000-fdffffff

Disconnections to the point that I want to pull my hair and I always end up with plugging my LAN Cable and finish this endless story. But if truth to be told, I'm not happy with that and I want to learn how to fix that + I want to get rid of it.
By the way, I can't connect back in 80% of these disconnections no matter how long I wait or how many times I try. That is why I have to go the wired connection path.

How to do that? what am I suppose to do?

Thanks :)

I am not trying to do anything evil but it is kind of ironic. Fortunately I have never had a wireless problem with Lubuntu 11.04, 11.10, 12.04, 12.10 and of course 13.04 (run from a flash drive). I will follow this avidly awaiting a solution to the problem. ;) :geek:
