First off I upgraded my Wifi card from a ralink to a Intel Ultimate-N 6300 and also had to install a Modded bios so the computer would accept the wifi card. I can get my wifi to connect in Windows but when I try to install any linux tried Ubuntu's, Crunchbang, Archbang etc. the wifi card is recognized but when i try to connect to any router I get an endless loop of it trying to connect. if the router had a wep key it will go in an endless loop for about 45 seconds then re ask for the password if the router doesnt have a password it will just sit in an endless loop saying connecting. The computer is a dv6-6135dx with a AMD chipset has the 3500m processor in it 6620g integraded graphics with a 6750m graphic card also. Could it be a conflict between the AMD chipset and the wifi card needing a intel chipset driver? Here is some more detail.
03:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 [8086:422b] (rev 3e) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 3x3 AGN [8086:1101] Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 53 Memory at f0200000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: iwlagn Kernel modules: iwlagn
also have done:
sudo rmmod iwwlagn sudo modprobe iwlagn bt_coex_active=0
this allows me to connect to the wifi but only on that session of Ubuntu if i restart i have to go back into terminal and retype also i am noticing slow speeds after doing that. Any suggestions?
What I've tried:
- According to this bug these cards might have a hard time when in 802.11n mode. Doing a
sudo modprobe iwlagn 11n_disable=0just makes it get stuck in an endless loop trying to connect.
