eTangenTanyone know anything about NetworkManager?
dojewhat's your question ?
eTangenTwell, if I leave my connection idle for a little bit of time, it drops the connection and doesn't reconnect.
any thoughts on why this is?
dojewireless or wired ?
eTangenTwireless
using ipw2200 drivers
dojewill it reconnect if you manually select it again ?
eTangenTyes
dojeI'm not sure about knetworkmanager reconnecting - oddly i have that prob in xp on this machine and not in suse
one thing you can try is to change the channel on the router to try and not get booted off in the first place
eTangenTdoje, the signal is always around 80%
and if I'm getting kicked off, it's always when I'm not using the connection
which incidentally enough, is usually when I'm not here
dojepowersave perhaps ?
does it do it when you're at the machine but not using the network as well ?
eTangenTyeah
probably powersave, I guess
alright
reconfigured it
hopefully this works
thanks :D
dojenp, i hope that works for ya
