Wireless Internet fine on Windows, not working with neither Fedora nor Ubuntu!!! Help
I have a DSL connection attached to a wireless router at home which at the moment working fine on my windows laptop. However I have problems connecting to the internet via my desktop which has fedora on it and TP-Link PCI Wireless card. The connection with the wireless network keeps restarting, disconnecting and reconnecting and when it is connected either no internet or very slow sluggish internet barely loading the webpage title.
I installed Ubuntu and the same problem is happening.
Yesterday However everything was working fine even on the desktop.
When I first installed Fedora about 4 days ago I had the same problem but when i restarted the computer everything worked fine. Restarting the machine does not seem to solve the problem now.
Please help me diagnose the problem here as it's really hard for me to extend a cable from my desktop to my router. And I need to internet on my Desktop.
I'm sure it's bedded properly since it works part of the time.
I only have one PCI slot on my MB, I know it sucks but it would cost more to get a MB with more than one. And I'm using the computer as a training machine.
After all turns out you guys were right!! there was something in the way of the card it was seated firmly but not because it was seated properly rather because it was stuck on something else. My case is a little awkward with some redundant pieces of metal, I fixed the problem and now the internet works perfectly fine.
