Default Problem with Ubuntu and router

Hi,

I can't seem to get any http and ftp upload traffic on Ubuntu with my
D-Link WBR-2310 router. Usually it works fine, but now I am getting no
upload. I know it is a problem with Ubuntu because Vista works fine on
the router and I know it is haves nothing to do with my ISP because the
problem goes away if I plug the computer directly into the modem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need to get this fixed. I
live in a household with many computers and I can't keep on plugging my
computer into the modem. I need the router. If I can't fix this I may
actually need to go back to Windows after four years of using Linux.

What kind of error messages are you getting? Are you able to get any
web pages at all? Have you tried a different browser? What ftp client
do you use? What are your network settings WITH the router in the
middle and without?

I have been receiving no error messages. When I am dealing with PHP
scripts I get a PHP script download on the browser.

The download is fine and I am able to get all webpages to display. I
just can't do anything that requires anything more than a couple KB of
upload. I can't post to forums, I can't use PHPmyAdmin, and the like.
I went to speedtest.net and got normal upload (3 Mbs), but got 0 Upload.

> Have you tried a different browser?
Not recently, but when I had this problem in the past I have used
Firefox, Opera, and Konqueror. All had the same problem.

I tried both Nautilus and Gftp.

I mostly left the router to factory default except that I enabled the
wireless with WPA and set up my ISP using PPPoe.

Well, getting webpages requires an HTTP GET, in effect an 'upload' of sorts.

Wow, that's kinda nuts. with the router in the middle, what kinda of
traceroutes are you seeing to places like google? To me, this sounds
like a bad wireless driver perhaps. Can you shut down WPA briefly and
try uploading again?

It looks like I can send up really small amounts, but not much. Less
than 2KB as I was not able to upload a 1.7KB text file using FTP.

I'm using a Intel wireless driver, but my desktop which uses an ethernet
cable haves the same problem.

I completely disabled the wireless security and that did not help at all.

Default Problem with Ubuntu and router

I now highly doubt it haves anything to do with the router, it must be
Ubuntu that is the problem. I reset my router back to its factory
default,connected the computer via ethernet, rebooted my computer, and I
still have the same problem.

Default Problem with Ubuntu and router

I have the exact same problem on ubuntu 8.l0.

I have a wireless network. No security is activated.

It works fine for some time, but after a few minutes the conection is
really slow.

The signal is 100%.

I tryed to restart the network, but no succes.

Rebooting Ubuntu solves the problem, but is not really a solution...



However I identified when this heapens.

It heapens when I move from the room where I have 100% signal in a more
isoleted room.

But the problem is that when I return to the room with 100% signal, it
still works too slow.

I belive there is a problem with the speed that is autonegociated on
wireless networks(it goes down with the signal, but not up).

Could you please post the output from ifconfig (feel free to x out the
ip addresses). I'm specifically interested in the MTU (Maximum
Transmission Unit) value.

Could you also telnet/http into your router and determine the MTU it
is configured with.

Sounds familiar?

You might want to look through DSLReports for issues with your router:

You can search on WBR-2310

You might try turning off IPV6 in Ubuntu to see if that helps. I've not
had issues with IPV6 turned on, but others have reported DNS issues with
it turned on if their router does not support IPV6.

You might want to ensure that you have the latest firmware in the router.

Also check your PPPoe settings. Is PPPoE set in the modem? If so, then
turn it off in the router & set DHCP on the WAN side of the router.

Personally, I just set my DSL modem to bridge mode and then set my
Cisco/Linksys BEF-VP41 do all of the work. The wireless (Netgear WGR614
is then conneted into the VP41.
