wifi drops dead after a few hours

Fri Dec 01, 2017 10:13 am


The topic title says is all; I have a brand new pi/3 and it's up and running (using Stretch); the pi just sits there, completely idle; after a few hours, the wifi drops dead. I hooked up a display, and noticed that the os was still running. I guessed that the power management had decided to shut down the wifi, so I added the line 'wireless-power off' to the /etc/network/interfaces file; it didn't help one bit. My other pi/3 (running Jessie) keeps on running its wifi 24/7; what can be wrong with my new pi/3 (it's running with an official power supply; no additional hardware; it's fresh out of the box)

kind regards,
