Re: Trouble with university wifi

I got no real explanation! It was kind of sad. And for my script I simply opened the terminal and typed "sudo crontab -e" hit enter then "@reboot ping 208.67.220.220". Again I really appreciate your time. 8)

Re: Trouble with university wifi

I scripted a "network pacemaker" cron job, for lack of better words. I went to the IT services department at my university to see if they could help me and I was essentially told that I should just switch to windows because linux machines have problems on their network (WOW!). But with this cron job...

Re: Trouble with university wifi

phd21,

It is only stable if I am constantly pinging a dns server. And I did not touch the power management setting so it was already enabled. I disabled the internal wifi card through the console with "lspci" then added that to "sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist".

Re: Trouble with university wifi

Hi sleepyski, Depending on your WiFi adapter, it may be going into power saving mode, which you can turn off (disable). It looks like you have 2 Wifi adapters? Please post the results of the "lsusb" and "iwconfig" console terminal commands. Network: Card-1: Ralink RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe...

Re: Trouble with university wifi

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run " inxi -Fxzd " and " lsusb " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information. So this is what I get when I run the command System: Host: sleebs Kernel: 4.10....

Re: Trouble with university wifi

Check your DNS server settings. You may be required to use a particular one at a university. Or, they may just block certain DNS servers. If all else fails, the DNS google supplies is 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 I'm not very knowledgeable on this but I attempted to add the DNS servers that my macbook says ...
