Hi everyone,

 

I have a problem when work on OPi zero wifi which is running Armbian linux sunxi 4.19.62. I used nmtui to configure wifi connection with static ip. It works fine even rebooting or re-powering up however I tried to power off the router and the result is it has never reconnected again. Next, I plugged in the ethernet cable into RJ45 port, the connection is established. I use sudo ifconfig to show the information, I saw that both the wifi (static) and ethernet are correctly then I can access via ssh or scanning the ip. One again, I continued plugging out the ethernet cable, all connections were disappeared even wifi and connection via ssh is failed. Is there anyone face on this issue? Giving me some help, please.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

There are many many users with this board - better use a search engine and throw in: XR819 or xradio and check results.

Sorry, I have not clearly understood your suggestion yet.  You mean that I should search and install the XR819 or xradio driver for my board to check first, right?

I guess what Igor meant to say was that you should search for XR819 or xradio in forums to find topics with similar issues and if users solved their issues.

Regardless of that I'd still recommened that you upgrade your kernel to sunxi-current (to say Linux 5.4.x) and check if the issue persists.

I have updated the kernel
"5.4.20-sunxi #20.02.1 SMP Mon Feb 17 02:09:41 CET 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux"
However the problem has not been resolved. Do you have another suggestion?

Can you provide a new armbianmonitor -u with the new kernel after a disconnect happens?

How can I do that? The board was disconnected then plug cable ethernet and show the armbianmonitor right? Alternatively,  I have to use a USB comport to keep track it during connection and disconnection?

Only other option is to use proven working USB wireless solution.

 

Nobody will address this Concorde fallacy.

Does it really have no other methods? May I can write a script to check and recover the wlan by code?

 

An other hand, when I update kernel from 4.19 to 5.4 I don't get lines during run

Don't know for sure, but if you want to proceed to this Concorde Fallacy project and answer the question, you are on your own - raise cash, hire experts. I estimate we already lost for 20.000 EUR + of working hours (you don't support) trying to solve and support this problem ... We should stop way sooner.

I dont know what exactly happens and what this causes. As stated XR819 is known to be unstable or even considerable broken by design (like PCIe on H6 but at least it works somehow). I own the board by myself but the first thing I did was removing the wireless antenna as I did not need it :P

Anyway. Sure you can script yourself some kind a watchdog that checks by pinging a host outside every second or so and when a disconnect happens do something like ifdown/ifup if that helps or do forcefully rmmod and modprobe the wireless module to recover it  (if that works at all, no idea). You have to try around by yourself. Maybe you can come up with something nice.

Thank for kind of your suggestion. I think so, we should never give up if we don't try all the ways. I think your guide is very nice, one small process can really resolve it. I ask this issue because of I think my board or my setup was problem, if it is a "natural available" bug that I don't need to spend a lot of time to investigate more :D, it should handle by some methods that fit to my application is better.
