    Hello,
    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 ! 🙂

    Hi Yasmail,

    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?

    Hi Heiner,
    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.

    Hi Yasmail,

    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?

    Hi Heiner,

    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.

    Hello Heiner,

    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.

    Hi Yasmail,

    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 max2play

    Hi Yasmail,

    We now also added an output in the current beta of the WiFi/LAN plugin that shows the status of the power management.
