Wifi not reconnecting on reboot

where do I find the bug / logs?
same problem, not connecting to wifi , not storing wifi password, after reboot

Have same problem,
osmc , system up to date.

wifi is a dongle with realtec driver.

WIFI setting not stored on reboot after I changed the wifi ssid.

Have to connect via lan and connect again, but not persistent.

Any hints?


Please do not resurrect 2 year old topics, or post in 2 different ones for the same issue.

Details on providing logs, can be found here.

Thanks Tom.

Is your SD card writeable? Try
touch test.file reboot and check if the file is still there ls -lah test.file

yes I can write on SD Card
still WIFI not Stored

Is there any reason why you haven’t provided logs?

No, soory, will do asap

looks like the gateway will not be stored correct after pressing apply
Will have to use manual IP / static.
just creating logs,

  • wifi is enabled
  • connected to a SSID
  • Gateway is empty, did enter it correct.
  • had to do this twice till Gateway was display correct
  • reboot

connection is gone

Thanks for the help

  • tried to upload log via myOSMC, but did not get a confirmation or progress information?

managed to get this upload url.

thanks for the help

I would try clearing some space from the sd card and see if the issue persists. It may not make any difference, but you will have issues updating in the future; with limited space.

Thanks Tom.

I see you’re running a network interface on eth0 and wlan0. TBH, the log seems to suggest that you have obtained a working connection on both interfaces. The gateway is showing as DNS on wlan0 is and on eth0 is possibly

Please run the following commands:

route -n
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Then run connmanctl services
For each of the services listed, run connmanctl services <service_name>

thanks for looking into it.

Looks like removing the LAN did solve.
After reboot wlan is still available and persists

route -n: shows now
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UG 0 0 0 wlan0 UGH 0 0 0 wlan0 U 0 0 0 wlan0 UH 0 0 0 wlan0

rebooting with lan attached still disables wlan , after manual enabling it, wlan is working but not persistent.

thanks Thomas

Thanks , have to insert a bigger SD Card.
was just 2 GB
Can not identify what can be removed without problems.


Yep, OSMC must be installed on a min size SD card of 4gb. Any install on a 2gb is going to have problems.
