Computer freezes when connected via wireless

Postby bhude on Thu Nov 15, 2012 11:05 pm

I have recently installed Asus Pce-n53 wireless card on my computer. I had to install driver from Asus's website http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=11&s=1&m=PCE-N53&os=&hashedid=F3giHhIS4hp6aWBW before any wireless network was detected. I can connect to wifi but my computer freezes when I try to access any thing over wifi. I can connect to internet fine via wired connection but my computer freezes the minute I switch to wifi. I cannot use mouse or keyboard.

I have searched the internet but I cannot find anyone else with similar problem. Can anyone please help me?

My system's details are as follows:

Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service smbd reload

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the reload(8) utility, e.g. reload smbd

Mint 14 is not released, discussion of RC issues is requested at http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2205
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
