WiFi connection issue after a time

Postby NetNuttt » 2020-09-27 00:18

I have a strange issue with my WiFi connection.
I can install a new version of Debian 10 stable or testing and on the new installation everything is fine with my WiFi connection. On boot up the WiFi connects almost instantly and my VPN connects almost instantly and I can access the internet in a few seconds after boot up.
This will continue this way for a few weeks to a month and then I will notice it starts taking longer for the WiFi to actually connect and then the VPN to connect.
It will be noticeably slower until it gets to a point where it is has a connection issue. The WiFi symbol on the task bare will be spinning trying to connect.
At this point I usually install a new fresh install of Debian and start over. I have installed Debian using KDE, LXDE, XFCE, I3, Gnome and LXQt.
They all start the same why with no WiFi connection issues but then turn into a connection issue.
I have tried updating Debian regularly and tried not updating Debian and it still ends up with the connection issue.
Not sure what could be causing this or why it would start out fine and end up with annoying issues of connecting.
I have a Lenovo laptop G50 AMD processor with AR9565 WiFi controller that I have been using for Linux for several years. All firmware installed and no firmware missing or errors.

I suspect your vpn is screwing with it. You can check disabling the vpn and see if its still not able to connect.

Have you tried disabling hardware encryption and/or changing powersave options?

Code: Select all
journalctl|grep -i wlp*** -A10

replace wlp*** with your wifi interface name.

I entered "AR9565 linux" into a search engine and this was the top result: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=304393
Code: Select all
# tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf <<<'options ath9k nohwcrypt=1'

Which is exactly what sunrat suggested...
