Wireless problem on some websites

Greetings,

I have a strange problem with my wireless. It works well with some websites (this one for example), while it does not work with other websites. It starts loading them, but it never finishes. So it sits there, with a web page half opened...

I know that this wireless does not filter any websites, since it works fine with Windows.

What might be the cause?

Here are my specs:

# uname -a
Linux mononoke.home 2.6.24.4-64.fc8 #1 SMP Sat Mar 29 09:54:46 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

# lspci | grep Wireless
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)

# rpm -qa | grep 3945
ipw3945-firmware-1.14.2-1
ipw3945d-1.7.22-4
iwl3945-firmware-2.14.1.5-2
dkms-ipw3945-1.2.1-1

I am using the network-manager service to connect. The wireless uses WPA encryption.

Thank you for your help

I don't think it's your wireless. You are either connected or your not. If it works then it works regardless of what web site you are visiting. Just my opinion but I think you need to look elsewhere (on your system) for a solution.

Hello Helker

It's odd that you have both the ipw firmware and the iwl firmware loaded on your machine.

Did you have a specific reason for installing the ipw3945 driver? For the majority of people the iwl3945 driver now works much better in Fedora8 than it ever did before and in my experience better than ipw3945.

If you haven't taken any steps to blacklist the iwl3945 you may be suffering from both drivers trying to control the card.

If I remember correctly, I used IPW a long time ago, and then I installed IWL because it worked with the network-manager service.

Should I remove IPW?

Hello Helker

I can't guarantee that it will make any difference, but if you are using the iwl driver then it is not necessary and "may" make a difference.

Worth a try, my 3945 card has worked perfectly with iwl3945 since Fedora 8 came out and so I can't see any other reason why yours doesn't.

I removed the IPW drivers, and rebooted (just in case), but nothing changed. At least I removed some unused drivers

Helker,

When connected with an wired ethernet connection, do the same websites fail to load? Might be something as simple as disabling ipv6. Add these 2 lines to your:

/etc/modprobe.conf

alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
