Sleep breaks WiFi?
« on: September 18, 2018, 08:08:02 pm »
Only solution is to go to settings -> utilities and restart networking
Any idea how to fix this?

hmmm. doesn't happen here. wifi reconnects on wakeup, no problem.

Atari Portfolio (yes, it still works and yes, I bought it new)
Libretto 110 CT (with docking station and all kinds of PCMCIA stuff)
And, now, a Gemini and, fortunately, a GPD Pocket

On my 2.1.4.14 (PC version) sailfish, when the screen goes to sleep, the wifi goes up and down every 5 seconds or so. If you ssh into the gemini, your shell "suspends" for a second or so every 5 seconds while the wifi reconnects (assuming you are connected via wifi). As soon as you wake the gemini, the wifi remains stable. This happens even if you aren't connected - one symptom is higher battery use. I now disconnect wifi and only enable it when I need it (4G is on when the unit is asleep). My battery life has gone through the roof. Could probably get 3-4 days with normal use instead of an easy 1 day. There is probably a setting which would keep the wifi alive, but I haven't found it yet (cursed systemd......)

I seem to recall this was a problem on the community edition of SFOS for the Sony Xperia X as well - not sure if it ever got fixed, but it might be worth looking at some of the other SFOS sites to see, if you haven't already. (together.jolla.com, talk.maemo.org ?)

Make from 2.1.4.14 an update to 2.2.1.18, this should fix the wifi reauth bug.

Howto? Look at together.jolla.com geminiPDA Wiki under "update to 2.2.1.18". You have to edit some files.

Unfortunately I am using an x25, so this update doesn't fix the wifi issue. I just enable wifi when I need it, or put up with the battery drain (still get an easy days usage).

I have a x25 too. If you are going from 2.1.4.14 direct up to 2.2.1.18 then it will fix the bugs (reauth and network freeze)!
If you are already on 2.2.0.29 it will fix the reauth bug but network freezes after a while. Do a downgrade to 2.1.4.14 before the update to 2.2.1.18. I did it that way.

I know, it's unlike. ;-)
