Re: zero W looses IP - reboot doesn't bring back...

Is there anything useful in the system logs? dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant both log some useful stuff. ...sorry, no log, the device is unreachable again. It requested the last IP at 00:18 last night, but is still connected to the wifi (a raspi 1 access point) at -46db, according to the AP. It's a pain.

Re: zero W looses IP - reboot doesn't bring back...

Is there anything useful in the system logs? dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant both log some useful stuff. I had a Zero W that kept losing its WiFi. To fix it I wrote a script that pings the router once in a while and then restarts the connection if there was no answer. After a bit of tuning this was enoug...

Hi and thanks for reply! Nope, it's on the attic (rather cold last night...) and in an "open" enclosure, good ventilation. Moreover, I booted the raspi 3 now with an old opensuse I had here and plugged in a keyboard/trackball, gave the same error -71 and was not functional. A USB-stick was correctly...

Re: USB device (1090MHz) disconnecting - with error -71

I replaced the raspi 3 by another one and ceteris paribus the setup is running stable for more than an hour now.

Any way to check if the USB-ports on the Raspi 3 are failing? It's only 4 years old and has been running for much less than a year in that time...

Re: zero W looses IP - reboot doesn't bring back...

I rebootet the AP now and strangely the broken zero w reconnected afterwards, but still has no IP.

I found the feature of DHCP, that never got really implemented, something like "all renew your IP now). Might be helpful in this case... :-/
