WLAN on EeePC 1000H

  • Question
  • Updated 5 years ago
After installing EasyPeasy 1.6 WLAN was working fine on EeePC 1000H. But after installing all latest patches, WLAN does not work any longer. No problems using the old EasyPeasy 1.0. There I get this card info using iwconfig:
ra0 RT2860 Wireless ESSID:"*****" Nickname:"RT2860STA"

Need more info. Are you getting any error messages? Does the wireless icon indicate any sort of connection? Is this a "low signal" issue or a "no signal" issue?

I did some more checks: the correct driver is loaded, the WLAN is found, the password is correct, but the connection does not work. Seems that one of the patches since install version of EasyPeasy 1.6 was confusing WPA2 encryption. I never had this issue with EasyPeasy 1.0. Next thing I will check is to use lower / no encryption to check if this is the root cause.

I had a similar issue. For what it's worth, this is what fixed it for me (my wireless card is an Atheros AR5001): http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-fix-...

That's a simple procedure; give it a try, reboot, and see if anything changes.
