Hi I have a connection on anotherr wifi network that was set up a couple of years ago downstairs. The issue may relate to adding a new wifi network upstairs this morning. I have connectivity then go to midori and It defaults to a bodhi guidance page regarding connecting to the internet. When I try to serarch it says theres no connection to the net. Regards D

Stupid human question, are the networks using different SSIDs but on the same wifi channel within the same frequency band?

I had an odd experience on 11/11 after dd'ing a bodhibuilder created iso file. My chrome browser had the DNS zeroed out - and of course I could not connect. The solution was easy - I set DNS to 8.8.4.4 and 4.4.4.4, which are Google public. So far nothing else odd has shown up but I have not really searched or tested.

I am having a similar thing - strong WifFi signal but no internet connection. Disconnecting from the network and reconnecting most of the time solves the problem. I used to blame it on the local internet provider for unreliable service but it seems like the cause of the problem is different.

I was thinking of purchasing an external usb WiFi dongle but not sure that it would solve the problem.

Is there anything in the area of the device that could be interfering? For instance I have a laptop we keep in my kitchen and most of the time when we use the microwave I have to disconnect / reconnect to the wireless to get a connection again.

Hi, Jeff,

 

There is nothing in the close proximity and the interruptions occur pretty often when no appliances are runnint.

Weird, must be a bug in the network manager package then. You could try switching to WICD.
