Default Fixing SSH - 11-20-2008, 05:49 PM

Trying to SSH to a server on my mini 9, I found that SSH kept getting hung up after I typed the password. Looking around the web I found a fix that seems to work. Found on this forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=948560&page=2

Steps to fix SSH:

Open a terminal window:
Type the following:
sudo gedit /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wireless-tools
Enter your password
Scroll to the bottom of the file and Insert:
/sbin/iwpriv eth1 set_vlanmode 0
Make sure not to change anything else in the file

I had heard about this problem, but never experienced it.

There's a patch out for the driver now so it's not necessary to run iwpriv to fix.

My just delivered dell mini did not have this problem, so it seems it is fixed in the latest shipping versions.

My new Mini 9 just had this problem out of the box. I poked around the web for longer than I should have before checking here; this fix worked perfectly. Thanks!

From some of the aforementioned web poking, it looks like this problem only occurs when using 802.11*, and only with some access points. Those not experiencing the problem may not have the problematic AP.
