    Default QCA6174 wifi disconnects

    I'm relatively new with OpenSUSE. Just installed leap 42.2 version and I have a problems with Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter.


    02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [168c:003e] (rev 32)
    Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:0827]
    Kernel driver in use: ath10k_pci
    Kernel modules: ath10k_pci



    Initially suse doesn't recognized it.


    I've copied this firmware files:


    https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firm...master/QCA6174


    into /lib/firmware/ath10k.
    I've also renamed file /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/firmware-4.bin_WLAN.RM.2.0-00180-QCARMSWPZ-1 to firmware-4.bin
    and /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw2.1/firmware-5.bin_SW_RM.1.1.1-00157-QCARMSWPZ-1 to firmware-5.bin.


    Now opensuse see wifi adapter and connects. It works fine but after a while internet stops working.


    This is the dmesg | grep ath result:

    Default Re: QCA6174 wifi disconnects

    Some ideas to start with....

    1) A better analysis of NetworkManager can be got using
    Code:
    journalctl -u NetworkManager
    or watching the tail in a terminal while connected...
    Code:
    journalctl -fu NetworkManager
    2) Is the wifi connection 802.11ac or 802.11n....?

    3) With the connection active, watch the iwconfig output continuously with something like
    Code:
    watch "/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0
    Code:
    watch "/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0| grep Quality"
    4) These devices do seem to have stability/throughput issues with Linux. This bug report may be relevant for example...

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1670041

    5) I'm not sure if this is due to an underlying power management issue, but if the device supports it you may be able to inhibit power management with
    Code:
    sudo iw dev wlan0 set power_save off
    In general the current value can be got using
    Code:
    sudo iw dev wlan0 get power_save

    I have no errors in journalctl -fu NetworkManager when the internet stops working.

    My wifi adapter is 802.11ac.

    I've tried to set off
    power_save but it doesn't help.

    When I disconnect wifi and connect again, it works.

    What about signal levels?

    I have a good signal level, it works fine on another devices. This is what I get from sudo journalctl -fu NetworkManager -n 30 when wifi stops working:

    That just tells us that it can't reach conncheck.opensuse.org, but not the underlying reason. There's no evidence from the NM output that you wireless connection has broken though. When this next happens, report back with
    Code:
    ip address
    Code:
    ip route
    and see if you can still ping the gateway.
