Ping Sendmsg No Buffer Space Available Solved Assignment

On By In 1

Computer: Lenovo IdeaPad 110
WiFi AP: Linksys E2500 v1.0 with firmware v2.0.00

After a few minutes of mixed Internet use, the WiFi hangs and the interface ceases to pass traffic:

64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=281 ttl=55 time=12.8 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=282 ttl=55 time=12.5 ms

--- 8.8.8.8 ping statistics ---
314 packets transmitted, 283 received, 9% packet loss, time 366615ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 11.423/177.382/7227.733/806.648 ms, pipe 8

Before the driver hangs, speeds are 30/5 Mbps despite a 75 Mbps WiFi transmit rate and a 70/70 Mbps symmetrical fiber connection in the house. The connection and the router are known to perform better than this with other equipment.

Forcing the router into 802.11g mode does, at least at a cursory glance, seem to mitigate the halting problem, but speeds remain abysmal.

If there is any kind of technically involved tests I can do to speed up the debugging of this problem, let me know. I have some experience with embedded development in C.
