[solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

after the first reboot and all of the lights indicate success it still wont allow me to reconnect until I reboot it for a second time

is this a problem with how my router is set up ?

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

Also what router is it?  Google should reveal if it's a common problem with that router, if there's a firmware update to fix it if it's firmware, or if there's alternate Open Source firmware you can install...

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

Somewhat related, my BT Home Hub 3 has started to ignore wireless connections. Wireless devices work and connect OK to internet, but are not visible on the LAN to other devices. A Reboot fixes this, for a while....

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

I have one of these routers and have no problem at all. Pretty much default settings/firmware.

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

Sorry if this is a bit basic but are you actually getting an ip address assigned by the router?

If not you could try the dhclient command to see if that forces one.

Also, what is in your interfaces file

cat /etc/network/interfaces

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

I am glad you at least have a workaround now...

If you want to try the solution provided in that link, do

sudo geany /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf

most of the lines in that file should be commented out, find the line

#timeout 60;

uncomment it (remove the #), save, close, do a series of reboot and see if it worked...

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

I would have expected your interfaces file to also have the lines

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

Or is that not necessary, anyone?

Re: [solved] my router only allows connections every second reboot

I am glad you have found a working config!
To restart the networking without reboot try

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

It might give you some warning but it should get the job done.
