Re: Wifi disconnects with Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377

You may want to try a newer version of the firmware or a newer kernel from Backports and see how they fare. I also have this card on an Acer Aspire 3 running debian buster. Since "upgrading" to the latest backports kernel and firmware packages, the performance is certainly good enough for...

Re: Very slow speed with Atheros QCA9377 on Debian10

Rolling back to a previous firmware version (which is reasonably easy to do) may help:

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces" SO

It turns out that my "boot delay" / "slow boot" / "boot pause" problem was just another instance of the "Boottime Entropy Starvation" issue. (I'm guessing that wpa-supplicant couldn't connect as it was blocking on requesting random data from the kernel, which ...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

Does this mean anything to anyone?: $ systemd-analyze critical-chain The time after the unit is active or started is printed after the "@" character. The time the unit takes to start is printed after the "+" character. graphical.target @1min 19.019s └─multi-user.target @1min 19.0...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

Timeout, default 5 min :oops:, is in /etc/systemd/system/network-online.target.wants/networking.service I changed it to 20 secs. Question: did you change the timeout because you have the same problem as myself? With the timeout at 5 mins, approx how long does your boot "pause" at the &quo...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

You can disable the IPv6 stack with the ipv6.disable=1 kernel command line parameter. Done. (I added "ipv6.disable=1" to the end of the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT" line in /etc/default/grub and then ran "sudo update-grub" to update "/boot/grub/grub.cfg"). Af...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

Do you still experience the delay if you assign static addresses? Yes. I edited my /etc/network/interfaces, changing: iface wlp4s0 inet dhcp to: iface wlp4s0 inet static address 192.168.0.6/24 gateway 192.168.0.1 and then rebooted, but I still get the same delay. I've noticed that during the boot p...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

You do have systemd-networkd installed, it is part of the systemd package so you could try that and see if it brings your network up any quicker. You're right. I've just checked, and systemd-networkd.service is installed but disabled at the moment. To debug ifupdown try journalctl -u networking Ok,...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

Off the top guess, having a conflict among services/packages trying to manage your network interfaces they may need to be masked w systemctl, ie: systemd-networkd or if Network-manager (Gnome) thing installed and running. That's a very good point. The weird thing is that this is a fresh box with ju...

Re: "A start job is running for Raise network interfaces"

Try to change the first line auto wlp4s0 to allow-hotplug wlp4s0 I am not sure, that it will help you (but it cannot harm). An interesting suggestion. I had thought the same thing before I posted my initial question, and I then found https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2017/09/msg00911.html. I tri...

"A start job is running for Raise network interfaces" SOLVED

Hi all. I've just installed a fresh Buster (debian 10) on a dell studio 1555 (using the netinst non-free CD image) and the install went perfectly. I've edited /etc/network/interfaces to add a stanza for my "Qualcomm Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)" nic (pci id: 168c:0...
