raspberry pi 3 freeze when wifi drop

Sat Feb 24, 2018 12:48 pm

Hi,
On a fresh install of raspbian stretch lite, after configuring wifi with raspi-config, everything work like a charm...
But when i turn off wifi on router my raspberry pi freezing after 1 or 2 minutes (each time).
The only thing i can do is to turn off power supply and turn on on to resume.
I've tried on 3 SD card, still the same. I've check hash of downloaded img ( it's good). I've tried with 2 different official power supply, still the same.

Anybody for a solution ?

Try with the 4.14.21-Kernel:

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update

Ok,
I try rpi-update.

EDIT : After rpi-update, everything seems to be OK. Question is, why latest raspbian image is stil on a 4.9 kernel version ?

I have the same problem, using the latest lite raspbian image released 2017-11-29

Is updating the kernel really the only way to resolve this?

In my case, it's for now, the only working solution.
