I’m using Manjaro with the kernel
5.8.16-2-MANJARO and i3 as window manager.
The problem that i currently face is that my WLAN connections is very unstable and reconnects every few seconds.
dmesg i figured out the problem is that my router has two BSSIDs, one for 2.4GHz and one for 5GHz connections. Every few seconds my system tries to switch from 2.4GHz to the 5GHz which always ends in a timeout. Here’s the output of
dmesg. (I replaced the BSSIDs with
[39480.768607] wlo1: disconnect from AP <2.4GHz> for new auth to <5GHz> [39480.768790] rtw_8822ce 0000:01:00.0: sta <2.54Hz> with macid 0 left [39480.769394] wlo1: authenticate with <5GHz> [39481.208748] wlo1: send auth to <5GHz> (try 1/3) [39481.314040] wlo1: send auth to <5GHz> (try 2/3) [39481.420593] wlo1: send auth to <5GHz> (try 3/3) [39481.527238] wlo1: authentication with <5GHz> timed out [39481.928088] wlo1: authenticate with <2.4GHz>
Since I don’t have access to the router I gave up on using 5GHz and just want to have a stable connection to the 2.4GHz BSSID.
nm-connection-editor to edit the connection and configured
Band to be
B/G (2.4 GHz) and manualy selected the correct BSSID. Then I saved the config and rebooted my system. But my system is still trying to connect to the wrong BSSID every few seconds.
Does anyone have some suggestions which configuration i might need to change to prevent my WiFi from disconnecting?
