Linux Mint 9 (Isadora) loses internet connection

Postby maagaard on Wed Jan 23, 2013 4:30 pm

I use Linux Mint 9 Isadora for a KIOSK computer.
I am using WICD.

Suddenly it has begun to lose the internet connection in Chromium.
I Restart the computer and the connection is working again.

Wicd has some problems and wont turn off out of nowhere, I would advise using the default LM network-manager.

Re: Linux Mint 9 (Isadora) loses internet connection

Postby maagaard on Thu Jan 24, 2013 2:26 am

But my internet connection is working.

I'm trying to show a specific webpage 24-7.
After a while it seems like the internet connection drops and I get
http://www.flickr.com/photos/23374316@N05/8409474266/

If I go to the machine and reload(or restart) it will show me the page again.

Thankf for your help :-)

I find another solution, system load two drivers but only use on of them; it is necessary put the second drive on a blacklist, because system is jumping from one to another and so it drops the connection.

It is in Brazilian Portuguese and I will make a translate/resume and post here tonight.

Open a terminal and:

Code: Select all
lspci -vvv


Search kernel driver in use, and kernel modules, like the example;
