Re: wifi stops working after a couple of minutes

Postby austin.texas » Sun Oct 22, 2017 1:58 pm

I first wanted to see if it said "Power Management:off" - which it does, so that is good.

But now, the question is - why does it say
" *-network DISABLED "

Mine does not say that.
I don't know why yours does...
