I am using the Asus PCE-AC68 wireless card which uses the Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03) chipset. The bcmwl-kernel-source driver is installed and connecting typically works for a few minutes after logging in before the connection drops and the network-manager keeps asking me for the password over and over. Sometimes it works for a few seconds/minutes and then drops again.
I've tried turning the power management off with "sudo iwconfig power off", but as soon as I try to connect to a network, it turns back on again.
Distro: Ubuntu Studio 16.04.1
- Setting ipv6 to
iface wlp6s0 inet dhcp
sudo iwconfig wlp6s0 power off
iwconfig gives the following output:
$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. wlp6s0 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:on enp3s0 no wireless extensions.
ifconfig entry for wlp6s0:
wlp6s0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 1c:87:2c:b6:cf:93 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:139 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:612 TX packets:227 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:19824 (19.8 KB) TX bytes:34566 (34.5 KB) Interrupt:19
Any ideas as to what I could try next?
