[SOLVED] disable access point roaming Mga6

[SOLVED] disable access point roaming Mga6

Postby wrw105 » Jun 1st, '18, 14:30

Hi!

I've recently changed ISPs, and am using a wifi hot spot as primary source. I've had some issues connecting which seem to be resolved by removing access point roaming.

Here's the problem: it doesn't stay disabled. Removing the adapter and reinstalling it does no good.

Is there a config file somewhere I can edit to remove access point roaming to disable it completely? MCC hasn't helped. MGA6, happens across Plasma, Mate, LXDE...

What did you use to configure the wireless connection? drakconnect? http://doc.mageia.org/mcc/6/en/content/drakconnect.html

And please provide the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep -iE "wlan|wifi|wireless|net"
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -iE "net|wpa"


and, as root:
Code: Select all
ifconfig -a
rfkill list all
systemctl status network.service -al
journalctl -ab | grep -iE "fw|firmware|iwl|wifi|wire|80211"

Yes, drakconnect from within MCC. And I've changed wifi name to phonewifi and computer name and domain to localhost.localdoman.

Re: disable access point roaming Mga6

Postby doktor5000 » Jun 2nd, '18, 18:01

Ok, and could you explain the actual issue a bit more? From what I understood you can currently connect to your wifi hot spot.
Disabling roaming is not really a setting per device (there is only a signal sensitivity threshold, but that usually cannot be changed with many wireless chipsets or they ignore it) but more a setting for the applet that chooses between available known or open networks. Actually roaming means switching to another access point for the same SSID, which is common for enterprise wireless installations but also common if wireless expanders / repeaters are used.

So does the SSID you connect to consist of several different access points, or is it only one physical AP, do you happen to know ?
You could also look at /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/wireless.d for the known networks, but if you decide to post those please make sure to remove the keys/passwords ;)

You could try to take a look at drakroam, if there are any advanced settings there.

Overall I'd recommend to switch to networkmanager, I've described how to switch from Mageia's default net_applet to that here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5782

Thanks, Dok!

Changing to networkmanager seems to have done the trick (been using it a few days, just to be sure).
