Lubuntu 11.10 x86_64 Wireless dropout!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For some reason my Wireless USB adapter drops out completely at random intervals forcing me to pull it and replug it back in. It's fine in Windows and I think it was fine in 32bit Ubuntu (standard) It's only since moving to 64bit that I've noticed this.

Also, CTRL+ALT+F1 terminal just threw out "Unable to enumerate USB on Port 1" errors endlessly and it also suggests the USB cable is bad... but as I say it's rock solid in Windows so I'm thinking a driver error of some sort?

How to move forward from here? It's not a system breaker but it's frequent enough to warrant looking at!

How about a model number, driver/firmware/version, and any other details you think would be useful tongue.gif

Yeah sorry that might be useful, eh? Was in a rush, GF nagging-ness!

It's a Virgin Media branded Netgear WNDA3200 Wireless 11N Dual Band USB Adapter.

Not sure how to find out the firmware version or which driver is being used. I did a system profile to see if that would tell me anything but it didn't give me anything useful, just ARP, IP and Routing tables. I'm still new to Linux as you probably know from all the threads I've made!

lsusb will give you a bit more, there are other things you can lookup too but giving us that info is just as valuable really.

lsusb example:

Same thing with lspci and the works.
