I'm new in Ubuntu and I have some small problem with my wifi. I manage to connect it after an hour of using this forum, however now whatever I'm doing I'm loosing the connection every few minutes. I think it started when I've installed dropbox and all of the software required for it. I have to turn off and again on network to get it for next few minutes.
- Ubuntu version 14.04 - asus x550L - belkin f7d2301 v1
I have logged to another account and everything was fine before I have installed dropbox.
Any ideas how to fix it? I have such a limited knowledge about this system that I don't even know where to start.
Edit: I have blocked IPv6 and worked without dropbox, problem still occur. I have noticed that it's more likely to appear if I open 2-3 tabs at the same moment, or download update and at the same moment open tab; watch playlist on youtube so it download all the time..
Any ideas how to fix it? I can't believe I have such a problems with linux from the very beginning.
Edit2: should I maybe change my router settings? I have almost default from benkin. Dynamic connection on channel 10, bandwidth 20/40, 802.11e/WMM QoS on; wpa-psk+wpa2+psk.
Edit3: I had enough of it so I have reinstalled system. Same story, installed dropbox which was updating something, using internet and crash after 20sec.
Edit4: I tried to play with MTU, no idea how to change it on my router but I learned that I should have 1472 (+28 = 1500). I added to
/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf two lines:
default interface-mtu 1500; supercede interface-mtu 1500;
It didn't change anything. It seems like I'm trying to use too much internet (?). I made limit 1024 kb/s on dropbox and it works. However when I try to update information in "incomplete language support" it crushes..
