fix for panda wireless pauo5 (maybe higher)

Post by bulsatar » Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:42 pm

I was getting wireless connection but it was routinely stopping and disconnecting. Resetting the network manager didn't fix it. Unplugging and restarting the machine didn't really help either. I did find a fix, turning off the usb auto suspend. I think what was happening was that the panda wireless wasn't keeping the usb port active for long enough and it was getting turned off. So far, and this is several days now when before I couldn't go an hour without a wireless outage, I have had solid connection. Hope this helps someone else that is struggling to diagnose their issues with a wireless usb internet adapter.

I used this tutorial for how to manage the auto suspend.
