I am using a TL-WN321G wireless adapter...
This is my wireless driver
Code: Select all
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501/RT2573 Wireless Adapter
Now when I first installed LMDE everything was fine, then slowly I started to have wireless problems. First, every 5 boots or so, my device will NOT see my network's ESSID on the network list, I have to manually connect to it (ESSID is on; I've checked). Then recently my wireless connection just cuts off after a while or so...
Here is the /var/log/messages output...
Please note I had to unplug my device and reconnect it for it to get me back online.
I don't believe the problem is with the wireless driver; I'm pretty sure ubuntu and debian both use the same one, and I had no problems with the connection there.
I've also noticed that when I unplug and and replug my wireless adapter in, it is VERY hot.
Is my wireless adapter dying?
