Hey folks, i have really weird problem with my wireless connection.
I can connect to access point (manually and with manager), internet is working for about 5-7 minutes and then the connection breaks up. The only way to get it back online - put the interface down and up. Access point is WEP encrypted and there is no problems with passwords/signal because i was using it for a while without any problems.
System: Ubuntu 8.04 32bit
Wifi: Atheros 5007 with madwifi drivers
IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"2WIRE717" Nickname:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:18:3F:03:B8:79 Bit Rate:18 Mb/s Tx-Power:16 dBm Sensitivity=1/1 Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off Link Quality=38/70 Signal level=-57 dBm Noise level=-95 dBm Rx invalid nwid:609512 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
I was trying to find out what can cause such behavior, but didnt get any satisfying results. Then i noticed that the "Rx invalud nwid" rate is really big. But it doesnt explain the reason.
Please help with an advice.
