Intermittent connection

Postby Steez on Fri Mar 01, 2013 9:41 am

Hi there forum, I was hoping I could get some advice on how to solve my connection issues. It seems heavy traffic makes the connection drop out, despite saying its connected.
I've included a mintwifi read out as suggested. I've notced the excessive retries climb hugely during heavy traffic. I'm suspecting a driver issue and are trying a few different versions. Disclamier : I'm still comming to grips with Linux, there is alot I've yet to understand.
Cheers for your time,
Steez

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
