Full Version: Wifi Lockup On Sftp/scp

I can ssh to and from my 3100 just fine using the same SMC card that I used with my 860, but with the 3100 any attempt to use sftp or scp quickly knocks the connection down. Pulling the card out and reinserting restores the connection, but not the file transfer. This worked fine with the 860 and an old pdaXrom version. Is it an rc12 thing? What should I look at?

This happens either in X or just from the prompt. In X if I toggle the card down and back up it briefly restarts, but then stalls out again in a few seconds.

Later: It's also happening with gFTP. Small files work okay, but larger ones quickly lock it up. Not sure I was trying to move such large files on the 860 - trying to move tars of the ide3 files off the 3100 before reformatting the HD. So if it's a file that can transfer in a few seconds, it's fine. Anything larger and the wifi connection's locked up (although the light stays constant on the card).

Could this be an MTU problem? If so, where would I adjust that smaller?

Right! The hostap-drivers ipk seems to have fixed it.

It also make the HD disappear (unless that was coincidence), but after a reboot that's back to normal and it's humming right along with a large-file transfer.

Thanks much. It's nice to have a community here that's in the old tradition of helpful.

You're welcome,

I have the same problem (when doing an apt-get upgrade in debian) and figured the solution was over there. I didn't have the chance to test yet.

Now you confirmed that it works, I'll have to take the time to install them. wink.gif

Thanks.

Hey, how is that Debian on top of this, anyhow? Intriguing prospect, now that I've got this HD space to toy with. Is the performance penalty major?
