Thought I'd share this for others. I was given an old Dell Dimension 4600 so I put on Ubuntu 11.10, replacing Windows XP. Worked fine but I had no wireless card so I bought a Belkin N300. Wouldn't install from the CD so I started reading and getting wireless to run on Linux sounded horrendous. Contacted Belkin and they assured me it wouldn't work.
I have a Belkin Surf N300 wireless adapter for my PC. It will work for a while, then stop accessing the internet at random. My router has all green lights on and my computer says that it is connected to the wireless network. I'm sorry, but I don't know if it stops working all together or is simply slowing down a lot.
I'm new to Ubuntu (or any other kind of non-Windows OS) and am currently enjoying it on my laptop and desktop PC. I am however having some trouble getting my desktop to connect to the internet. The usb adapter I'm using for my wireless connection appears to work except that it won't ever actually connect.
I'm trying to connect to my WPA2 network using an external Belkin G plus MIMO (ver. Nr. 4000) under Ubuntu 11.10. I'm hot having an any luck. The device seems to crash either immediately upon bootup or after approx. 30 seconds of holding the connection. The same device works falwlessly under Windows 7 on the same computer.
I have a Rosewill rnx-n300 Pci wireless card, and since installing 12.04 the connection intermittently stops receiving data. The problem seems to be worse when downloading files, whether from the Web, updater, or from the software center. The network manager never shows loss of connection, and disconnecting then reconnecting wireless solves the issue.
I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop pc. I am trying to use the Wireless USB N300 Netgear to obtain interent access but have been experiencing some diffculties.
I am a beginner to all of this by the way. Please
