Been using Spup with the ATI crystal graphic to watch streaming video.
Been using Xchat and Seamonkey.
Got a bit confused adding Xaralx from slackware but got it working well enough to use. The dependency thing is difficult to sort out for those of us weaned on Quickpet . . . Rolling Eyes

Seems a solid spup to me Laughing

PostPosted: Wed 20 Apr 2011, 04:54    Post_subject: regular loss of connection.  

No pattern to detect could be every minute or so, but could be also long periods in between, but regularly I loose my connection.
Having then the url not found message from the browser.

I found out, that when waiting a bit and retrying, I have access again.

Quite annoying and don't know how to diagnose further.
Code:
eth1      IEEE 802.11b  ESSID:"WiFi_9C"  Nickname:"ipw2100"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 00:23:08:E4:98:9C   
          Bit Rate=11 Mb/s   Tx-Power:16 dBm   
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:XXXX-XXXX-XX   Security mode:restricted
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=98/100  Signal level=-58 dBm 
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:4

If someone has an idea?

Hi Beem
Have you tried the lupu stay-connected pet:

peebee, I forgot about that one.
Hopefully it'll work in spup being made for lucid as far as I see.
But for me it masks the underlying problem.

The original stay-connected is here. I'm a little surprised that it has gone from being a quick fix to a standard Puppy wifi repair tool.

Here is my (limited) understanding of the issue. Some wireless routers periodically poll their clients to see if they are still active. Some clients, when idle, won't respond. So the connection is dropped. I don't know if this is a function of the client's wifi adapter driver or WEP/WPA or something else.

LOL... Gnumeric hangs when selecting ALL Cells, then selecting 'format all cells' from the right click pop-up in a .ods document. To be fair, that is a pretty extreme command, so irrelevant I think Smile

Thanks for the update and explanation.
It seems to me that I have this problem more often with the latest puppy's of Lucid,spup with the same router/WiFi adapter.
Maybe a WiFi adapter driver issue? A newer kernel?
My laptop isn't the newest one.

I haven't installed yet as the last couple of hours I didn't have any interruptions. Amazing.
As soon as I start to have interruptions again, I'll try it. And report back.

Add that to /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc, run "fixmenus", restart JWM.


Thanks for this info Mick. Using it, I have been able to assign icons of choice to display when using an iconified tasklist (my preference)...cool Smile

Wow. I'm surprised how fast this issue fell off the radar, considering Puppy's mandate to support old hardware. BTW, Minnesota deserves full credit for reporting this problem and identifying the cause.

I'm also surprised by the lack of interest in the BootFlash issue, since it affects any future Puppy built with Syslinux 4.

I should not comment at all due to lack of knowledge but this exchange give me the impression that one need two different puppies?

One group of puppies that works well pm older computers and then some puppies that try to use the latest gear and work well on them?

To combine both seems not easy is it?

I mean even Lupu520 failed on my relatively new Acer D250 and that one is only at most 2 or 3 years now? So what is older then. Computers from 2003 to me is older maybe okay every computer with less than 250 MB as default installed?
