Hi there, I use netcfg for my university wlan (eduroam). It works fine for a while but after a couple of minutes I get disconnected and need to reconnect manually. I think that happens pretty regularly, so I assume that some kind of connection renewal doesn't work for some reason. Any idea what could be wrong, how to fix it or how to reconnect automatically?
No idea why this might go wrong. I suggest you use net-auto-wireless, that will handle everything gracefully.
Thanks, I'll try that. It's important to me that wlan is completely disabled when ethernet is available. I hope this is possible. I'll tell how it went sometime next week when university starts.
I use the following script with ifplugd:
[ "$1" = "eth1" ] || exit 0
case "$2" in up) /etc/rc.d/net-auto-wireless stop sleep 1 /usr/bin/netcfg lan ;; down) /usr/bin/netcfg -d lan sleep 1 /etc/rc.d/net-auto-wireless start ;; *) exit 1 ;; esac
Thanks Thomas, this looks simple enough, I'll give netcfg + net-auto-wireless + ifplugd + this script a shot, looks like a good solution to me.
