This command toggle off power management.  From my experience, this is
not a FR bug, but an AP bug : some AP do not work good with power
managed client.

On my lab, at the university and in my LUG, the wifi work without
swiching off the power management.  But at home, I need to toggling
off power management. With power management, it is difficult to have
an IP by DHCP, and pinging the router make between 70-80% of lost
packets. My Nintendo DS do not work with this router too.

I experiment wifi problem when loosing link, that can only be fixed by
a reboot.  It is not great when roaming...

(tested on Debian with FSOm2 and m3 kernels)

  i want to ask if there are other users having the same issues?

 Yes, wireless is flakey. Generally if I lose signal, then I need to reboot
 to reassociate.

I'm experiencing the same since I've upgraded to 2008.9. I had absolutely no 
issues unter 2008.8 (I've upgraded through flashing since I didn't know opkg 
upgrade would have done the same thing).

 Apparently some people need to do iwconfig eth0 power off to even get an
 association.


I'll try this one :)

Wlan Issues after inactivity

2008-09-22 Thread vale

Hello,

i want to ask if there are other users having the same issues?

If i do an ifup eth0, then i start some updates or installs (apt-get install
or opkg install ...) everything works fine. if some time passes by and after
some minutes i install another thing or do wget something, then the
downloads doesn't start. ping to the sites is still working. if i do an
ifdown eth0 and ifup eth0, i can download again, experiencing after some
minutes the same issue.

is there a possible solution to this problem ?

thanks

vale

In some cases, you're doing better than some of us. At least you can reconnect 
without a reboot :)

 is there a possible solution to this problem ?

I don't think so, I've tried most of everything with varied success/failures. 
I think we're waiting for it to be fixed.
