sszindian,
What sort of modem is the device? The above drivers are for land-line Plain-Old-Telephone-System (POTS) connections, not wireless.

I think a friend has a similar device that is probably a wifi/WAN-type interface. Are you connecting to the modem-router via an ethernet cable? Or wirelessly to it? How does it connect to the internet -- by wired connection or wirelessly to some outside wifi network?

Just to know what we are dealing with, could you use pupscan to find and list the connectivity devices so that we can verify all the pieces are supported optimally by drivers?

Here's the config on my setup-

Westell Model A90-750015-07 Rev z Verizon Modem/Router hooked to a DSL line.

It is a wireless modem using my LinksysAE1000 USB plugin to access it... no wires from computer to modem! The modem connects to the Internet through a standard telephone DSL line hookup.

I mentioned this before in various threads. I have two distro's I'm currently running on this same setup with wifi- Peppermint Ice (wifi prog is WICD)for over two years without ever a problem also the newer Peppermint-3 and pemasue's Wheezy-3.5.2.5 (wifi is standard SNS wlan0) since it came out and never, ever a wifi drop on either of these programs... ever!!! In the past, I have also used this wifi setup without issue on PCLinuxOS and Pardus, I believe WICD was the prog used.

It's not that I 'need' Precise as a distro but I test it for BK and I would like it to be running right for the users that are coming to puppy, possibly with the same setup I use. Etho is not a problem and Precise works very well with it and I believe most of the testers of Precise use etho and that is why there is never an issue with their testing as far as Internet connection goes. I guess I'm just a tad different Smile

>>>---Indian------>

EDIT: I did a quick pupscan on both Wheezy-3.5.2.5 and Precise-5.2.2.93 and there was one different loaded kernel module file in Wheezy if it makes any differance?

Precise-5.2.2.93 has rt2x00usb

Wheezy-3.5.2.5 has rtx00usb

Everything else in the 'rt' loaded modules was the same.

There is quiet a bit of items there and of course plus the detail on each and no way to copy and paste so if you need something specific I will hand-copy it for you?

sszindian,

EDIT: I see we overlapped in our postings. You answered some of my questions. I will sort that all out in the morning. /EDIT

Thanks for spelling it out for me. So, the concern is only about the wifi link to the router. I take it that the router-modem handles everything regarding the DSL configuration and that you do not need to also set up pppoe in the connect wizard.

Now that you are using frisbee, Have you experimented with the "dropwait" delay for reducing dropouts? As I understand it, it delays dropping the link after a dropped connection. I am not sure what that accomplishes, but suspect some other logic retries the connection and might succeed during the delay period. But I am just guessing. Maybe a modest delay will improve things. But try several values before giving up on it.

Oh, I think the hardware ID of your USB wifi dongle is 13b1:002f, in googling I see several drivers mentioned. Please tell us what driver you are using, as I cannot find a driver name in precise 5.5.93 for that hardware ID. Pupscan can help and lsmod can, too. It may be that we need to get a Ralink driver for best results, but I first need to know what you have now. We might save some time if you can obtain and send me a pdiag file, which you can create in frisbee diagnostics. (Bedtime)
Richard

After more googling: the module is rt2800usb. There are some postings about it. So maybe there are issues. Now, I must sign off for tonight.

Same symptoms as bad caps in router, which is very common. Could be the PSU with bad caps - or both. OLr even bad caps in the router power brick. Screwdriver and eyes are always your best friend, but beware of d.c !

PostPosted: Thu 16 May 2013, 12:36    Post subject: Added modem drivers: hsfmodem, intel536ep-SMP, pctel  

I have added the larger modem drivers to my original 2 postings:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=703587#703587
I used the 'split' command to segment them. Use the 'cat' command to concatenate them (in part-number order) back into the complete pet package. The name of the complete pet is the part of the file names preceding the "---part..." suffix.

I have also built the martian and pctel drivers for kernel 3.2.29, used in precise 5.4 and 5.5, and have posted them in the precise 5.5 Bugs thread here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=703937#703937
They should be added to the pet_packages library.

sszindian,
In frisbee, click the buttons "Diagnostics", then "Generate Diagnostic Data". It will place a 'pdiag...tar.gz' file in your home directory. Attach that to a PM to me, because it could contain some sensitive wireless setup information you might not want to publicize. The popup you will see should give you more info on the process.

PostPosted: Fri 17 May 2013, 03:23    Post subject: maybe a resolution changer problem  

working from a cd iso clean boot I forgot to install it first, I had a senior moment, and just created a savefile on shutdown.

On reboot with the cd, it picked the savefile up ok, however the resolution changer would not allow me to 'step down' from 1280x1024 to 1024x768 as I wanted (or anything smaller), but I could go upwards.

After installing this time, and rebooting again, everything seems to be ok.

Wierd!

I found this discussion Posted: Sun 27 Jan 2013:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=83995&sid=d0c15ef853a28f34f244d89f45f2f6da

Suggesting that this would disable window shading,
but sadly I have not found it to work.

<Group>

Is there any way to get it to work?
