Linux and Network interruptions

Description ¶

Dear NOC

I am using Linux (Ubuntu 10.04). I manage to get access to the network (ietf-a.1x, ietf-a-portal, ietf-portal, ietf.1x, even eduroam) using EAP/PEAP / MSCHAPv2, however no matter how I connect, I am experiencing frequent network interruptions that last for a couple of minutes.

Other Linux users experience the same problem.

Any idea how this can be fixed?

I too am seemingly getting bounced off the ietf.1x AP's in auditorium-1 this morning... and (as is in ticket/181) I can't get a connection establised to ietf-a.1x SSID.

We are continuing to investigate this issue. If you'd like to join us in the NOC we may be able to use you as a point of reference in these investigations. However, we have at least a couple of others that are seeing the same thing, and we continue to use them in our attempts to narrow down the problem.

The NOC is in room 0.11 on the ground floor.

I'm (correctly or not) blaming this on bugs in the linux kernel. Here's a couple of links to likely suspects:

There's a note early in the first one that suggests:

"I "solved" this by compiling the bleeding-edge compat-wireless drivers from Have a look at for instructions."

I'm going to close this ticket and reference you to ticket 181 as it has more information about this issue.

Please feel free to reopen (or have me reopen) this ticket if you disagree.

closed is fine for me.... I forced the nm-applet to ietf1.x only and do not encounter problems anymore... the server might still see me disconnecting and re-connecting but I do not loose connections anymore.
