Wireless performance is poor--a recent development. The following output repeats every 15 seconds in the syslog file:

Jun 25 10:41:00 Bullwinkle dhclient: PRC: Renewing lease on wlan0.
Jun 25 10:41:00 Bullwinkle dhclient: XMT: Renew on wlan0, interval 10170ms.
Jun 25 10:41:00 Bullwinkle dhclient: RCV: Reply message on wlan0 from fe80::de45:17ff:fede:7f9f.

cher' (using servicehelper)
Jun 25 10:41:00 Bullwinkle dbus[663]: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.freedesktop.nm
_dispatcher'

Could this be the reason for poor perfomance? Is this normal? If not, is there a fix? Apologies if this is a poorly formed question--my knowledge is weak.

I believe I intalled Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, but I don't know how to verify that.

Thanks to Rinzwind for the edit. I hope I did better this time.
Thanks to Pilot6 for the guidance.

  • What is your operating system? Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 terminal command. – Pilot6 Jun 25 '16 at 18:52

I think NetworkManager was being run/triggered from systemd and upstart. After

sudo service NetworkManager stop

the logs calmed down and everything seems stable.

(This was, for the record, on Linux Mint Betsy LMDE2, i.e. Debian-8-based).
