startup wireless

Postby AndyVIII on Thu Jun 25, 2009 4:03 am

a minor problem, more an improvement,
but would be appreciated if one of the experts had a hint:

If I log in at Mint 7 Gloria:
sometimes it connects directly to the wireless network, as expected... :D

but sometimes... nothing! :cry: Then after more or less long wait,
seems to be a timeout? it starts to connect...

Is there somewhere a setting to find, which could correct this?

Does this lack of quick conection result after a complete reboot or a suspend or a hibernate?

I only talk about complete reboot!
Here I observe these different behaviour:
the "normal" :D
and the "enervating" :evil:

in the meantime I think, it happens like this:
if mintUpdate is to fast, there is not yet a connection,
so it goes to a delay of 30 sec, and blocking the wireless!!
next then, mintUpdate wait for 5 min, and
here the wireless is able to connect...

so my question: where and how can mintUpdate be delayed
after startup, for about 5 min??
Any idea?

The Ubuntu servers can sometimes be notoriously slow, I suspect that is the problem.

That happens to me with my wireless laptop. I just manually select the wireless option after getting to the desktop. I am not in a hurry so not an issue with me.

what I tried: start up services, disable of
- mint Update
- bluetooth
- samba

but no effect!!

So still I would like to know: after login, why mint is not
immediately connecting to wireless???
