Failed to start Advanced IEEE 802.11 AP and IEEE802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP Authenticator

Well, I may have spoke too soon.

It seems wifi is unstable and requires removing and readding the kernel modules brcmutil & brcmfmac when wifi stops responding.


DMESG errors

ieee80211 phy0: brcmf_cfg80211_get_station: GET STA INFO failed, -110

brcmf_proto_bcdc_query_dcmd: brcmf_proto_bcdc_msg failed w/status -110


what get's me up again without rebooting

sudo rmmod brcmutil

sudo rmmod brcmfmac

sudo insmod /lib/modules/5.3.0-rc4-rockchip64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmutil/brcmutil.ko

sudo insmod /lib/modules/5.3.0-rc4-rockchip64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/brcmfmac.ko
