wifi disconnect timeout

wifi disconnect timeout

Postby thatguyty » Jul 11th, '16, 16:04

I just installed Mageia 5. The wifi seems to connect correctly, but occasionally, I would get a "dns not found" in the browsers and often have to reload it. I would still have a connection to my wifi, so it doesn't time out and disconnect. I was debating if it is my firewall. This did not seem to happen in my last two linux systems on the same machine (Linux Mint & Ubuntu). I have tried to use a different desktop manager as well, and currently using Cinnamon. Any ideas? Here is my info here of my wifi hardware:

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep -i -e net -e wireless -e wifi

Please next time use code tags as explained in ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/mandriva/m ... e_tags.ogv

Can you please post the exact error message please?

From what you described so far, does not seem like an issue with the wifi connection, but with your name resolution. Can you please show the contents of your /etc/resolv.conf ?
