asus N73 wifi


My wireless connection drops out ever now and then with some unknown basis. As most its like every fifth or tenth minute but sometimes it can last for a while before disconnecting. Something I could do about this quite annoying when listening to music.

regards

Hello raden, welcome to the forum,

could you please provide more information? which distribution are you using?
Please open a terminal post the output of
Code:
lspci -k | grep -iA5 wire
and the output of
Code:
iwconfig

Hello raden,

I have the same adapter in my laptop, it uses the same module (ath9k).

iwconfig says that you are connected to the wireless network. Could you please post the output of iwconfig again but this time after the connection is broken?

Which encryption does your wireless network use? Which distribution are you using and which program did you use to configure your wlan0?

Markus
