RPI Zero W disconnects and reconnects from/to WIFI

Thu May 06, 2021 11:12 am

I have a bunch of these running MMDVM for ham radio use. The image is pi-star (https://www.pistar.uk/)

The problem is it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting to the wifi network. Its pretty random but it seems to happen a bunch of times, then stays connected for 3-4 hrs. Then the cycle repeats. I did a ping -t from my computer to the RPI and that seems to solve the problem but the fact remains, it should not happen. Of the 20 or so wifi devices I have, this is the only one with this behavior. As I mentioned , I have several of these units and they all exhibit the same behavior. A wifi device, regardless of what its doing (including nothing) should not disconnect itself from the network.

Any clue?

Thanks in advance
