Wireless drops, and asks me for password everytime!

Postby Yazeed92 on Mon Apr 01, 2013 7:40 am

Hello,
I have been having this problem where my wireless cards (on my desktop and laptop) drop and ask me for password which has been already entered.

the command sudo /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/mintWifi.py shows:

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

I am running Mate 14 Nadia on both machines. I have tried installing Wicd along side Network Manager, but did not help.
Thanks

That happens to me sometimes too. For me it is because my wireless router. The router is not so good. I would check to see if it is your router or your computer. You can do that by looking at another wireless computer. If the wireless drops on both computers then it's the router. If only one wireless drops, then it could be the wireless NIC on that computer.

I would say that too, thing is this only happens to my Linux computers, whereas my brother Windows 8 ultrabook it works smoothly, also my IP-Tv and PS3. No problems at all. :cry:

it's started to drive me crazy...
