Reported by: Norceno Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Designated Driver (Trunk)
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: hostapd, apple, wifi Cc:

Description

The problem with hostapd Wi-Fi disassociation (instability) still exists after [47149], every few minutes Apple iPad Air disconnects:
Wed Oct 7 16:59:37 2015 daemon.info hostapd: wlan0: STA xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx IEEE 802.11: disassociated
Wed Oct 7 16:59:38 2015 daemon.info hostapd: wlan0: STA xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx IEEE 802.11: deauthenticated due to inactivity (timer DEAUTH/REMOVE)
Wed Oct 7 17:06:16 2015 daemon.info hostapd: wlan0: STA xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx IEEE 802.11: authenticated
Wed Oct 7 17:06:16 2015 daemon.info hostapd: wlan0: STA xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx IEEE 802.11: associated (aid 3)
Wed Oct 7 17:06:16 2015 daemon.info hostapd: wlan0: STA xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx WPA: pairwise key handshake completed (RSN)
etc.

I also have an iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 on the same network, they all working under iOS 8.4, but the problem appears only on iPad Air.
Previously I used old [43591] compiled from trunk with 3.14.26 kernel, and there was no such problem.

Well, further experiments showed that an iPad Air is working normally when on 5GHz, and the mentioned above iPhones working normally only on 2.4GHz, and experience the same problem on 5GHz 0_O

I've also tried to compile the CC - and there is the same situation with the Apple devices.

I've forgot to mention a device - it's a TP-LINK WDR4300 v1.0.

I have the same issue with my WRT1200AC and WRT1900ACS. My MacBook Pro along with my iphone running IOS 9.1 connects fine however when the router(s) are rebooted the iphone will not connect and it asks me for the password as if it has never seen this network before. When I enter the password it pops back up asking for it again. The macbook pro on the other hand connects fine with no issues.

Please don't comment on this ticket if you're using WRT1200AC or WRT1900ACS. Different driver => different issue.

This issue is *NOT* caused by hostapd, it is a driver issue.

Norceno, please test current trunk on your device.
