Question: Driver compiled and network works fine for a couple minutes. In order to have it work I have to 'route add default gw 192.168.0.1 wlan0".
This works for a few minutes then I lose the connection. If I try to type route to see my routes there are two listed. The one I question is (paraphrasing here, can't copy output because my connection won't stay up on the slack box)
I can't seem to remove this entry, I've tried several variations under route del and it won't seem to remove. For some reason this is brought up when I bring up the wlan0 device using a script that came with the OSS drivers for the acx100 chipset called "start_net". I don't see any entry in the script where a gateway is set.
Is there another file somewhere that would set this 192.168.0.0 destination that I could modify to set up the right gateway for me?
Or any other ideas why I keep losing the connection? Works fine in XP so it's not a hardware issue. Checked the README with the drivers, all the settings are set properly. The issue seems to be with the routing out from the wireless router to the internet.
