    Slight problem with Samsung N130 and Ruckus

    Just to ses if anyone else has used the Samsung N130s on a Ruckus network - I rolled out a set of 20 last week and some teachers have said they were unable to save work to server.

    This happended on orig netbooks (Samsung NC10s) but an upgrade on Ruckus software fixed it PDQ.

    Downloading latest (its up to 8.1.0.2.5 for info) and just upgrading now - will report next week to see if that's (hopefully) cured it

    regards

    OK - upgrading Ruckus didn't work

    N130s still reported as not being to save into server folder

    Saw it for myself today - I went to use a machine that had previously connected OK and it had disconnected

    So I donwloaded latest drivers from Samsung and installed them - didn't see any funny behaviour afterwards but I'll need the teachers/pupils to test them out again.

    Simon it is very unlikely that any wireless AP would be stopping a client from saving work on a server.

    It sounds like it could be down to a configuration or an ACL somewhere on your network.

    Is the client able to ping the server? Can you try to telnet to the server from the client on the port used for filesharing, 139 or 445 i think (you will need to double check this).

    I've just had two members of staff reporting the same thing. NC10 I've just had I just re-ran the activation wizard (the one that downloads the little file) and it seems to have fixed that one. My tech being the other but did the same and sorted.

    @Stuart
    Hi -I'm not at the school again till Thurs after half-term (fortnight away) - the world of primary support 1/2 day week

    The serer isn't the issue - thats just one of the faults the teachers report when their wireless isn't working - at the end of the lesson they go to save and it doesn't work


    I've had no reports of any problems with the original bank of Samsung NC10s since we did the Ruckus firmware upgrade before Xmas - it is just the new bank of 20 Samsung N130s.

    While I was at the school yesterday - I saw an N130 just lose the wireless connection - it was just sitting on a desk and the wireless icon changed to red cross

    As said, previous week I upgrade Ruckus firmware - no difference made - thsi week I've upgrade the drivers on the N130 (a realtek variety can't remember the type number - the NC10s are Atheros AR5007EG) - I'll need them to test out and see if that fixes it.

    They are running XP Home.


    regards

    Simon

    this should work

    download driver version 5.3.0.56 from here
    ATHEROS Wireless LAN 2.4/5GHz - Download Driver AR5007EG

    its called driver series 5, make sure you delete the old driver files first

    135 - 139 is netbios over tcp/ip ( I think ) and 445 is smb

    It's the atheros cards, they are absolute rubbish. Each machine we have with them don't work nearly as well as the machines with the intel wireless cards. It's not just on ruckus networks, it's also on hp networks (as tested at another school)

    I don't have a problem with my Atheros based NC10s.

    I have a problem with my Realtek based N130s

    New drivers haven't made any difference - teachers still reporting can't save to network folders

    I've lodged a proper support call with the net-ctrl helpdesk

    We had same sort of issues with realtek drivers but with Toshiba laptops and our ruckus wireless kit, i can't remember how many different drivers i tried but was a complete pita.

    We got them working in the to a suffiecient standard, but we had to turn the roaming aggression all the way down to stop them wondering off and finding another ap which was in other rooms. Maybe try this, should be in the advanced part of the driver properties.

    Yes, wireless chipsets do tend to have more sensitive roaming aggression these days.
    Ruckus is addressing the problem with these over sensitive clients roaming aimlessly with a control called bandstreering due for release in 8.2, 5-6weeks
