Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

Sorry for being silent for so long. Had work/life interruptions and then it took me a while to figure out that I needed to install the -extra package to get the drivers I needed. I finally have a functional 3.13.0-24 kernel installation and so far so good. If this works then I'll see if I can get -4...

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

Problem still persists. It seems like maybe it goes longer before jamming up than before. Also, it seems like use of high bandwidth like youtube can send it off, but that just might be selection bias. I'm at a complete loss as to what to do about this to make it workable. Any additional advice would...

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

The fourth file that you posted threw an error when I tried to install. Screen cap of the error is attached.

I rebooted and now uname-a yields
~ $ uname -a

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

It went a particularly long time this time, about 20 minutes, but it did crap out again and I had to reset the adapter. I'm going to execute the instructions you just sent.

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

Jeremy, I did the second thing that you suggested in your last post: edited the CDRA file. That seems to have made a major improvement. I just saw your new suggestions. I'm going to wait a bit before trying them just to see if this really is working or if it's just a particularly long time between g...

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

Jeremy, I followed the instructions in your link to generate the file (attached). While running the dist-update command prior to generating the script I saw a few instances of the following warning: Warning: No support for locale: en_US.utf8 Not sure if that's pertinent, but given that it related to...

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

Jeremy, Country was listed as "00", now listed as "US". I will try again to see how it's working now, if that made a difference. Karl, My firmware now shows up as 1.127.11. Sorry I wasn't clear that I had gotten that done successfully. However it doesn't seem to have fixed the issue. ~ $ dpkg --list...

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

So the wifi on this new installation is still ACHINGLY slow. Restarting the adapter seems to help, and it does seem like if I restart it a few times it will get into a state where it runs pretty well for a while, but is still fading away into no bandwidth land. It still seems to run at a trickle, bu...

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

I'm in the US.

I'm still seeing some glitchy behavior. Web sites were timing out starting right when I hit "Submit" on my last post, and I just restarted the adapter.

Hi Karl, Thanks for your help!

I am on 127.7. I will see if I can figure out how to upgrade the firmware.

Re: Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

Thanks JeremyB! I immediately had connection issues after reboot. Problem seems worse now. I can get a connection briefly (it seems) by turning off and on the wifi adapter. dmsg command yields [ 215.773167] wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:24:7b:11:f0:30 by local choice (reason=2) [ 215.780877] cfg80...

Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

I have a Dell Latitude with a Centrino Ultimate 6300 wireless adapter. The system works fine under windows, and worked fine under Mint 14. I upgraded to 17.1 yesterday, a full wipe and install, and immediately I had trouble with the wifi. It connects for a while, then gets really slow and even disco...

Upgraded to 17.1 from 14, wifi now slow and intermittent

I decided yesterday it was time to upgrade the OS on my trusty Dell Latitude E4130. Everything was working fine with it, but I was having trouble getting updates due to EOL on version 14 and this was a good time to take it down and update. Upgrade process went fine, it was a wipe and fresh install. ...
