sporadic internet access with wireless usb adapter


Put in a Netgear N300 Wireless Router. Stuck a Belkin Single-Band Wi-Fi USB Adapter in my computer. (When I installed the driver for windows I remember it used a Realtek driver.)

Installed Slackware 14.1. In netconfig tried both the automagic option and also the DHCP option. (I have DSL.) Either way ping and web browsing works fine at first. After browsing a few websites it freezes. Can't ping anymore either. (Although if I start downloading a file it seems to download massive amounts of data just fine as long as I don't web browse.)

Oh and this is new, I couldn't post this but I tried pulling out the wireless usb adapter and sticking it back in. That gets internet going again. This has something to do with renewing IP or something, I think?

It's hard to research this when internet keeps freezing up.

Shot in the dark here, but have you tried making your AP (router) use a different channel?
Maybe you have a nearby neighbors AP that's interfering?
If you can see a list of networks in your area, you should be able to see the channels they use too.
Not sure if you're using networkmanager or what, but wicd shows the channels along with networks.

Oh, wicd is the automatic thing built into KDE, right? Right next to the clock? Yeah that's what I used to connect to the router to begin with. I had to enter the password there.

Yeah there's other AP's on there. Just one right now but usually two. Presently researching channels and how to change them.

I wanted to edit my last post instead of double posting but it won't let me. Figured out how to change channels. It was on "Auto". The other choices were 1-11. I drew upon my vast technical expertise and chose channel 8. I had to reboot my computer for some reason. (Or maybe just wicd.) Worked then quit. Same problem.

All I have to do is pull out my usb adapter and stick it back in. If I can figure out why that makes the internet work again then maybe I can figure out why it quits working in the first place.

Also I remember I used to have a similar problem with the windows machine downstairs before there was a Linux machine. It used to be connected with an ethernet cable directly to the DSL modem. To make it work again I always had to turn the modem off and on. Finally I ran a diagnostic or something on it and windows said it made a change, something about the IP. Then I never had a problem again.

Now the windows machine is connected to the wireless router with an ethernet cable and the Linux machine upstairs is connected to the same router wirelessly. The windows machine's problem never returned. I wonder if I connected the Linux machine directly to the DSL modem with a cable if I'd still have the exact same problem.

What does pulling the usb adapter out and sticking it back in do to make it work again?

Your lsmod output shows that the rt18192cu kernel module is being loaded to support your device, but the "No buffer space available" message suggests that this is not working.

Check the output from 'lsusb' when you plug the device. The rtl9192cu module supports RTL8192CU/RTL8188CU devices. http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/rtl819x

I note that there have been some recent patches for rtl8192cu module.

I haven't patched it yet. Don't know how, still reading. I did download this:
rtl8188C_8192C_usb_linux_v4.0.2_9000.20130911.tar.gz
from:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...true#RTL8191SU

but I didn't install it. That website says its for Linux Kernel 2.6.18~3.9 but Slack 14.1 comes with kernel 3.10.17.

How do I figure out what version of rtl8192cu I'm using?

modinfo rtl8192cu:
Code:
bash-4.2# modinfo rtl8192cu

I suggest that you try building the latest driver from Realtek. At worst the build will fail if the driver and 3.10.17 kernel do not play nice.

If you click on the Download at the top of the page at http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/rtl819x and then Releases on the page that opens, you are taken to the backports page. I have checked the git repository accessed from linux-next in the About backports, but the latest patches do not appear. You may need to wait for the patches to appear there you can attempt to update the rtl8192cu kernel module according to the procedure under Tips and Tricks here. http://kernelnewbies.org/KernelBuild

Happy reading and good luck!

I think you're right. I've been reading stuff. I'm pretty sure the problem is a bug in whatever version of the RTL8192CU driver I'm using. (Still don't know how to check what version I have.) But from what I gather it's only an issue with wireless-N networks. Supposedly if I switch my router to wireless-g then that is a cheap workaround. I don't know if I did it right but I just set the router to 54Mbits since I think that's what wireless-g was limited to. So far this seems to be working. If I have no problems for a day I'll mark this thread as solved.

I know the real solution is to patch my module or install a new one but I don't know if the latest version is compatable with my kernel or if the patches would work so I'm gonna try to take the easy way out. If that works then I'll just wait for an official version of the module for my kernel to happen.

There should be another tag besides [SOLVED] for when you take the cheap way out. Like [CHEAP] or something.

I think it has something to do with kernel 3.10. But then where did my /lib/modules/3.10.17/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/rtl8192cu.ko come from? Did the Slackware team patch it to get it to compile?

I'm trying to figure out if I can just use an older kernel.

Alright, I'm gonna patch that source. From what I gather those are unified diff files and I can edit the source manually. I have dim hopes.
