Ok, I have a clue. If I reboot the wifi doesn't work, buy if I shutdown and then boot, the wifi works fine.

That's a weird problem .. are you 100% sure it ALWAYS works if you shut down rather than reboot ?

Yes, paying attention at rebooting I've seen a message about disconnect IRQ16, I think it is any kind of hardware problem. Shutdown instead of reboot isn't critic, i think I'll leave it

The exact message may help .. but if you're happy to just shut down instead.

I wonder if disabling APIC would help ?

do you know how to add

irqpoll

as a kernel boot parameter ?

If that doesn't work, try

pci=routeirq

instead.

If neither help .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/interrupts
?

Hello,

I've really found your post useful but I think I'm over my head a little on putting the pieces together. I am trying to run Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP Envy i bought from Woot.com (http://tech.woot.com/offers/hp-envy-six-core-desktop-w-10gb-ram).  I worked through this post:
1) got card recognized and on the network, but it froze when I used it
2) using the instructions on the 3/4 page and now I've got a working network card and no freezing
But.... I have really bad packet loss %50+.
I'm not sure if I have done a bad combination of steps (it really is just a series of steps, because I dont quite understand all the pieces.. like rt2800pci vs rt3290sta) or if I have another issue, but I was hoping I could get some help diagnosing or finding the where to look next. 

Any input would be much appreciated. I've snipped as much information I could think to include.

Hi tatagatha and welcome to the forum :)

I gather you need the rt3290sta drivers for your card, but I don't know if you've already installed them or not .. can you send the output from:
Code: [Select]
modinfo rt3290sta
and we'll go from there.
