WIFI on 17.6 (version 4.9.30 (264478))

hi all,

was wondering if there are known issues of either wifi disconnecting on the version in subject or ssh daemon terminating. i’ve attempted to get verbose logs, but nothing much to report on. the rest of the nodes on my network are connected during the time the pi loses its connection. after I switch to wired, no further outages.

cheers and peace,

Where does this version: (version 4.9.30 (264478)) come from?


SSH disconnects due to inactivity happen (to me) on wired, as well.

Perhaps this might be of help:

hi @dillthedog,

thanks for your response.
not really useful for me as I dont need to interact with the ssh session itself, i simply require ssh(d) running at all times as it should. i think something wrong with the wireless module or possibly a flaky wireless connection on the pi for another reason. anyway, no drop since wired configured. i might up verbose in sshd to attempt to trap it and revisit journalctl options.


Perhaps I misunderstood your original question. You wrote about “ssh daemon terminating”, which I took to mean it terminating SSH sessions but, from your latest reply, might also have meant the daemon itself terminating. Clearly, the latter shouldn’t be happening, and full logs would be necessary if we’re to have a chance of solving the problem.

NP :wink: I might have a look at it at some stage; got the powerline configured and all working as it should for now. Cheers.
