  • in reply to: OS Freezing #5159

    At first the only time I noticed it was when I tried to use the chat and everything got bogged down. Now it is becoming more and more often and this is over the course of like a week I’ve been using the OS.  This laptop is from our 2016 lease from Dell and it has 4GB of RAM and plenty of free HDD space, so not terrible hardware and my internet connection is ~600 Mbps down / ~900 Mbps up with 5 – 15 ms latency.  I might try running it in a VM or loading it on my other laptop.  This is my work Dell and my personal Dell is a bit higher-end on specs (16GB RAM quad-core i7).

    I was actually referring to the reverse on the network shares.  Not accessing a remote windows share from linux, but rather share from linux to a group of AD users and allow a user with an AD account to be able to login to linux.

    I’m going to have to remember that, but the laptop I’m using hasn’t been used in months (way past the 8 hour lease). I’ve mostly been using my Surface Pro 3 and I only pulled out the dell laptops so I could install Linux. I had this particular Dell on a dock and booted it for the first time in months with the thumb drive and installed Makulu. Now that I think about it when I had issues I was able to connect to a WPA2 Personal network that uses the same DHCP server. It’s working now though and I’m enjoying Makulu so far. Just some minor occasional freezing and some pretty bad issues when using Google sheets, wps spreadsheets and the Makulu chat.

    The WPA2 Enterprise authenticates through NPS (RADIUS) and uses user accounts on the AD domain to grant users access to the network, so I connect multiple devices at the same time and that hasn’t been an issue in the past.  In planning for a large number of systems being added to our network (since users can add their personal devices with the same credentials) I setup /21 VLANs for each campus.  That’s just to cover the faculty and the DHCP server is setup for 8 hour leases.  We shouldn’t have an issue with the number of leases.  We have 10 Gbps fiber between the campuses and 1 Gbps between the IDFs and MDFs.  Some of our APs are on older switches that only have 100 Mbps on the PoE ports and 1 Gbps on the uplinks, so bandwidth shouldn’t be an issue either.  I don’t know about the load on the DHCP at the time I was having issue, so maybe that was it.

    Yes, I have the correct settings.  Weird thing is it just connected.  I left for lunch and came back and reviewed the settings and clicked connect again and it worked.

    It is working now, but it still would not recognize the WPA2 Enterprise and ask me for settings when I press connect and had never connected to the network before.  It just sat there doing nothing apparent.  WPA2 Personal networks ask me for the password.

    It is not hidden and I can see other networks and connect to a WPA2 Personal.
