WiFi drops out after 15 seconds

  • In station mode, WiFi connects to my AP and the Omega can be pinged, but then drops about15 seconds later. To get the WiFi running I have to connect via a USB terminal, edit /etc/config/wireless to change option disabled from '1' back to '0', then run /sbin/wifi and it works fine after that.

    Tail end of boot messages:

  • Is this on first boot? I literally just started trying to get mine up and running and can't connect from my linux computer. It's powered up, I see it a the right AP, but the connection fails. I have a very similar dmesg to yours but am not sure if you're posting the log from the onion trying to connect to your wifi router, or your computer trying to connect to your onion?

    This is what I get:

  • John, my logs were from the omega. I think our cases are similar, in that the client is deciding to disconnect a few seconds after it has successfully attached to the AP. I suspect this issue is going to involve wpa_supplicant in some way. Probably not an omega-specific problem. When I get some time I'll look into it in a bit more detail.
