1  Assistance / Bugs / Lost wireless connection after upgrade on: March 28, 2007, 04:48:55 AM
I created another user account and ran the test but same problem. I then logged in as root and re-do the wireless configuration again (deleted then re-created and configured). While I was connected, I also ran the updates.

Loggeg back in as normal user and the wireless seemed to work OK.

Reboot and the thing still works. Mysteriously!

I did nothing different than before. So it remains a mystery.

I am a little concern about the difference between Sidux and Pardus as related to Group Cipher and Pairwise Ciphers. Maybe it was nothing to worry about.

Actually, the connection works in both cases which kind of a puzzle to me since I didn't expect the Pardus setting would work with WEP-40.

This works whether I use the Pardus default bcm43xx driver or the ndiswrapper. However, once I disconected when using the bcm43xx driver, I couldn't reconnect.

Also, there is another difference between bcm43xx and ndiswrapper. The speed limit for bcm43xx was 11 Mb/s while it was 54 Mb/s for ndiswrapper.

Nevertheless, this is not important since I don't use wireless for transferring file between storage devices. Only for web surfing and downloading, most Linux ISO and packages, etc.

I am new to Pardus way of doing things so I'll have to play around some more to get comfortable. And I am no expert at all. Just a little more informed user.  :wink:

I am going to try out your suggestion of creating another user to see how that work out.

Thanks.

benvdh,

Specifically, what am I looking for in the group settings? What groups should be included for a Pardus normal user?

Thanks.

PS: Something I notice different between Pardus and Sidux on the same laptop when running the command iwlist scan

For Pardus using ndiswrapper:

Code:

Cell 01 - Address: 00:14:10:10:5A:ED
                    ESSID:"homework"
                    Protocol:IEEE 802.11g
                    Mode:Managed
                    Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6)
                    Quality:57/100  Signal level:-59 dBm  Noise level:-96 dBm
                    Encryption key:on
                    Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s
                              24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s
                              12 Mb/s; 48 Mb/s
                    Extra:bcn_int=100
                    Extra:atim=0
                    IE: WPA Version 1
                        Group Cipher : WEP-40
                        Pairwise Ciphers (1) : WEP-40
                        Authentication Suites (1) : PSK


For Sidux using ndiswrapper:

Code:

Cell 02 - Address: 00:14:10:10:5A:ED
                    ESSID:"homework"
                    Protocol:IEEE 802.11g
                    Mode:Managed
                    Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6)
                    Quality:54/100  Signal level:-61 dBm  Noise level:-96 dBm
                    Encryption key:on
                    Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s
                              11 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s
                              48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s
                    Extra:bcn_int=100
                    Extra:atim=0
                    IE: WPA Version 1
                        Group Cipher : TKIP
                        Pairwise Ciphers (1) : TKIP
                        Authentication Suites (1) : PSK


Notice the differences: Group Cipher and Pairwise Ciphers

Also, does anyone know where Network Applet stores the configuration file?

I downloaded both the LiveCD and the installation CD. I was delighted when I tested the LiveCD and got the wireless card, a BCM4318-based, working. With WPA!

I then installed it onto my laptop, using the installation CD. Everything worked after the initial install. After I got the wireless card configured and connected, there were 19 upgradeable packages. So I did the upgrades. All 19. Then reboot.

Now I cannot connect. I tried to delete then recreate the connection. No luck.

I even tried the ndiswrapper without success.

Something happened with the upgrade. From what I can recall, none of the packages seems to relate to networking, but I could be mistaken.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Update: Out of curiosity, I logged in as root and as able to connect to my wireless router. So the upgrade somehow changed the settings or something so that normal user cannot make connection anymore.
