The system works perfectly fine with wired connection. It has problems accessing wifi at my office. However my wifi at my home seems to work fine.

I have installed wicd and tried many alternatives but somehow it does not help.

Pasted below is dump from lshw for wireless.

Log in to your router and turn off AP Isolation.

If it is already disabled try Enabling AP and save the settings, then disable AP and saving the settings again

I had the same problem once.

  • It was disabled. I enabled and then disabled Wireless Isolation in netgear router settings. I am able to access ssh now. However, sporadic access to remote ssh used to happen earlier in this wireless connection at times but mostly I was not able to. I will keep a watch and let you know tomorrow if access gets seamless. Thanks :)

  • I am still facing issues with connectivity even after switching off wireless isolation.
