[SOLVED] Intermittent Internet

Postby mintoreo on Wed Aug 20, 2014 11:10 am

Hi all,
I've seen similar problems, but not quite this one. I've always had trouble connecting to certain wireless connections, but never had a problem at home (wireless) or at school (wired). A few weeks ago, I wasn't able to get internet access at any of my local coffee shops, despite a solid network connection (and phone was connecting no problem). Then the same thing started happening intermittently at home, and now at school, even with a hardwired connection. I try fussing around with various settings, nothing seems to work, except waiting and it eventually will connect. Could this be a hardware issue, or something wearing out? I'm worried that this appears to be increasing in frequency. My connection is working fine *right now* but I'm not sure what to check next time it goes out. Any ideas?

Running Mint 13 Maya, on a Lenovo T61 Thinkpad

Thanks for any help!

Did you switch wifi devices? Maybe from a b, g capable to an N only type?

Thanks for the replies!

administrollaattori: I'm not clear on what that does that the native manager doesn't. Can you elaborate at all?

sounds to me like hardware problem. Have you tried a cheap USB wifi device instead? Is your wifi built into the device (laptop?) or plugs into it? Some of the older thinkpads used PCMCIA type cards for wifi.

Are you implying that the machine I bought 3 years ago for $150 isn't top notch? ;) (I've been waiting for a hardware problem to pop up)

I'm currently using whatever is built into the laptop, but may have a USB wifi device around somewhere. I'll definitely start carrying one around for next time it goes on the fritz. Great suggestion, thanks!

Good to know, I'll get on it. Would that also contribute to the issue with the wired connection? And is installing a new card worthwhile for a novice to take on?

I don't know if it could interfere with wired. I have had 7 laptops and only 1 of them was something a novice shouldn't try replacing the wifi card on. Most wifi card swaps involve removing a few screws, popping off a piece of plastic to access the card, then remove the screw securing the card, tilt the card up and remove and finally remove the antenna connectors by lifting them from the card.

The difficult one was a dell n411z, had to remove the keyboard, about 12 screws, a few ribbon cables......never again

WOOOOO!! FIGURED IT OUT!!!!

I mean, I don't really understand what I did, but it's fixed and that's the important part.
Following the advice found here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... 0bb2adc530

I had all the same issues as the poster, and used "sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf" to restore a symbolic link that had somehow gone missing and a reboot. Both wired and wireless connections are working again. I'm running victory laps.

Hopefully this helps someone else too, and thanks all who lended ideas!

Re: [SOLVED] Intermittent Internet

Postby Spearmint2 on Sat Aug 23, 2014 7:47 pm

Let's add this to the thread here then.

You are running NetworkManager. Resolvconf writes resolv.conf based on what NetworkManager tells it.
NetworkManager usually obtains configuration information via DHCP. However, in your case NM hasn't obtained a DNS nameserver address. (See below.) So your machine does not know where to send DNS queries.
Earlier your /etc/resolv.conf did contain an address, 192.168.2.1.
============
It seems that your modemrouter is not currently providing an address for the DNS nameserver.
Check your modemrouter configuration.
If your laptop works then it's possibly because it has a valid *static* configuration.
==========
SUCCESS!
Installed brand new router, deleted previous settings in Network Manager.
Reset and BINGO... off to the races.

I will second that - worked fantastically! Will see if the "cure" lasts, looks good so far. I wonder how this thing got broken in the first place. The wifi used to work perfectly then became intermittent (Toshiba Portege). Now it seems to be fixed, connects fast etc.

Alas I spoke too soon :x Back to the cable connection. A very intermittent problem. When wifi works is rediculously fast, hard to believe that it could be an incorrect driver. It's always connected but the internet is only sometimes there. Anyway, not sure if this is the appropriate thread to take this further. I can't help but think it's got something to do with some IP address that needs to set itself automatically.

maybe it's some timeout setting that needs adjusting, possibly on the router itself. Or a "keep alive" setting, similar to what we used during dial up networking days to keep the server active, not dropping the line.

Thanks for the reply, I wish it was so easy.. Can't be the router, about three of my other devices and many housemates' devices use it without problems, including my 2008 Windows 7 notebook, which connects flawlessly."Timeout" makes it sound as if it always works at the start then decides to switch off. I wonder if there is some kind of "timeout" within linux though relevant to wifi.. Wired never has any issues, just wireLESS.

Does it happen only with the browser, but works with Thunderbird email at the same time? Wondering if browser is the only thing doing the timeout? If you close the browser and then open it again, does it work?

Is a wired connection still dropping out too?

Ah, I notice I'm getting several persons confused. You have a working wired connection, it's limited to the wifi connection.

Did you ever try a USB device for wireless?

Your particular problem seems related to the wifi device your Toshiba Portege is using. Is this the type inbuilt wifi you have, as I see on one portege model?

Wireless Type 802.11bgn

Notice the overlap that "n" does of the other bands. the "n" is 40 Mhz wide, twice that of the "b" and "g" bands.

Set it to use only one of the more restricted bands. Other representations available if desired.

I've seen stronger wifi signals in use at the time overpower inbuilt laptop wifi, much to the consternation of one daughter when the other would turn her laptop on while closer to the router, knock the first one off. So, turn off all other wifi devices, connect with the Toshiba, see if it holds then without competition. If so, then you need a stronger wifi device to use with it, and maybe find the one that's overpowering it and see if there's a way to lower the wifi signal power on that one.

Wired works perfectly - no dropout. Not a browsers or email thing, when it doesn't work, even 'ping' from the command line doesn't work.
Am next going to investigate a driver called iwlwifi for this Intel 3160 that it has.
I might run this command again which lists everything about the wifi and post its output.

Code: Select all

gives you info on wired and wifi

Code: Select all
iwconfig


more info on wireless connects

I'm a firm believer in the $10-20 fix, rather than beating my head on the desk, which is a USB wifi device known to work with Linux. I currently prefer the Panda devices. If you need more range, I also have one of theseand they really do expand the ability to retain weaker and more distant signals. Time can be more valuable than wasting it on something internal that just doesn't do the job. Intermittent electronic problems are a PIA tracking down and usually end up hardware related more than software.

It certainly is a nightmare.. Just caught it in the act of being intermittent, naughty.. More details on that in a moment. Thanks for the suggestion but I don't think I'll start buying bits for it. If it's going to come to that would rather sell the damn thing and with the change buy a proven linux laptop such as a Tuxedo or Dell XPS Developers Edition - already strongly regret not doing that :( Otherwise, just put Windows 8.1 onto it "bare metal" and sit linux in a virtual box where Windows is currently sitting, at least then there's no hardware problems.

I ran your two commands and also another one I found:
Code: Select all
sudo mintwifi

which seems to do much the same but a bit more. THEN it started to misbehave (ie connection remained but internet dropped) so I ran all the commands again. Not sure how much one can tell from the output but I'll post it here anyhow.
