Hi! When I’m using Fedora 33 Workstation, I’m getting disconnected from my WiFi all the time and auto-connected again. It makes the desktop unusable. It doesn’t happen on Fedora Spins, only on official Workstation. I didn’t type it was wpa_supplicant fault, because when I uninstalled it and installed iwd, the issue remained.
On wpa_supplicant in journalctl I got this errors continuously: CTRL-EVENT-BEACON-LOSS CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED wpa_dbus_property_changed: no property SessionLength in object /fi/w1/wpa_supplicant1/Interfaces/0 CTRL-EVENT-REGDOM-CHANGE init=CORE type=WORLD
On iwd in journalctl I got this errors continuously: device (wlan0): state change: config -> ip-config (reason 'none', sys-iface-state: 'managed'), dhcp4 (wlan0): activation: beginning transaction (timeout in 45 seconds) dhcp4 (wlan0): option dhcp_lease_time dhcp4 (wlan0): option expiry dhcp4 (wlan0): option requested_broadcast_address => '1' dhcp4 (wlan0): state changed unknown -> bound device (wlan0): state change: ip-config -> ip-check (reason 'none', sys-iface-state: 'managed') device (wlan0): state change: ip-check -> secondaries (reason 'none', sys-iface-state: 'managed') device (wlan0): state change: secondaries -> activated (reason 'none', sys-iface-state: 'managed') NetworkManager state is now CONNECTED_LOCAL manager: NetworkManager state is now CONNECTED_SITE NetworkManager state is now CONNECTED_GLOBAL
Anyone knows how to fix this? Or any workarounds for this? (Besides connection via ethernet) Thanks in advance!
Those errors are likely indication of a weak wifi signal. Check distance from the AP and look for obstructions between your PC and the AP. I have some locations in my house where wifi is iffy at best and other locations where it is strong.
You might search for ways to check your wifi conditions and I found 8 Linux Commands: To Find Out Wireless Network as just the first of many online links.
Unfortunately I have computer next to router, so my wifi signal is full. Also on other linux distributions (including Fedora spins) I don’t have that problem and I never gets disconnected from wifi. So it’s something wrong with Fedora Workstation.
Super noob here! I installed Workstation 33 and all was good with my wifi, after playing with spin desktops and going back and forth I lost my wifi “no wifi adapter found”. Had to do a fresh install to get it back working and I have been sticking with the default desktop environment. Happened twice to me, hope this helps or points you in some kind of direction. This was on an ASUS Q526 laptop if that is important.
