hello,i have read a lot about the wifi issues on some usb dongles but none of the suggested solution is helpful in my case.
I’m running a RP2 with OSMC December version.
HDMI + WIFI USB dongle, thats all thats attached to the pi which is powered by a 5V 2 mA charger.
THe usb dongle is this one: USB: 079B:0062 Sagem XG-76NA 802.11bg which is running zd1211rw - Debian Wiki same as Artheros ar5007ug. i dunno how to check if i’m running the latest available firmware for it
my router is a dual n BAND running DD WRT software.
RSP2 is on the 2.4ghz band, it detects it just fine, however the connection drops a lot, even putty times out
iwconfig wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"ASUS" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.417 GHz Access Point: 00:0C:43:30:92:18 Bit Rate=6 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off Link Quality=82/100 Signal level=82/100 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:9 Invalid misc:73 Missed beacon:0
dunno why its showing 6mb/s when it’s max speed is 54mb/s
i even did a sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
but after a rebbot it goes lower.
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:19:70:2c:8e:28 inet addr:192.168.2.12 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST DYNAMIC MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:3928 errors:0 dropped:104 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:3774 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:3581459 (3.4 MiB) TX bytes:809853 (790.8 KiB)
i’m quite lost at this point
