I’m face to an issue that has been already solved but I can’t find the right topic.
My max2play is well connected on my WLAN. But if it is not used for 24h, it automatically disconnect from the WLAN. I have to reboot my RP to reconnect the WIFI.
I already check the max power for USB…doesn’t change anything.
Please, help ! 🙂1. November 2017 at 17:24 #32240
So assume you are using a WiFi dongle. What protocol does this dongle support and what is the name of it?
Also, what power supply do you use and what is the rest of your setup?1. November 2017 at 18:43 #32244
Here after my config description:
USB dongle : TP-Link Archer T1U Nano Adaptateur USB Wi-Fi AC 450Mbps
Encryption protocol : WPA/WPA2 mixed
Power supply through HifiBerry DAC (65W)
and this is it for the setup.2. November 2017 at 14:24 #32252
Do you mean HiFiBerry Amp+? The DAC should not have its own power supply.
Please try running it with a normal Pi power supply, if available (5V 2,5A).
Also, are you using the Raspberry Pi 2, or another model?2. November 2017 at 14:33 #32258
Yes , sorry, it’s the HiFiBerry Amp+ and RPi2.
I could try using a normal Pi power supply, but not enough powerful for the Amp+.2. November 2017 at 18:01 #32263
I mean just for testing, to rule out a faulty PS for the amp+.
I will see tomorrow whether we have a TP-Link dongle in house and then I’d test it as well.12. November 2017 at 11:58 #32423
I’ve done the test you suggested : using regular Rpi2 power supply.
the 24h auto-deconnect is still at work.
I wonder if I can change the Wlan power options without using the webinterface.13. November 2017 at 16:34 #32461
You could try this (not tested yet, but M2P is based on Jessie so it should work):
Disabling WiFi Power Management Permanently for Raspberry PI 3 with Raspbian Jessie
login is pi pw is raspberry, root pw is max2play14. November 2017 at 17:14 #32484
We now also added an output in the current beta of the WiFi/LAN plugin that shows the status of the power management.
