Appimages and Internet Connection

Hi,
I have a problem with Clearlinux concerning my internet connection. When I got Appimages running on my laptop and the device enters the suspens mode, I do have to restart the computer in order to regain a internet connection. When only native apps are open during a suspense period, wifi is still working.
I don’t know, if the issue is related, but every now and then Clearlinux is super slow after a start and there is no internet connection. Restarting device solves the problem.
Thats not super problematic stuff but still annoying…
Greetings

It would help if you can include info about devices that are affected, and possibly relevant output from journalctl after suspend. There may be an indication as to what devices are giving problems.

I will run journalctl the next time the issue comes up and send you the information. Thanks

Here comes the result toJournalctl:

I had a system with this card and it drove me nuts. Random drop disassociation with the AP and no resume from suspend. I would have to up/down the NIC and restart wpa_supplicant all the time. In short, the firmware is not well supported and problematic on Linux if you search around.

You can try getting the latest copy of the firmware: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/ath10k/firmware
You can try disabling powersaving on the NIC: https://askubuntu.com/questions/870412/wifi-dell-xps-13-9360-keeps-disconnecting-with-qca6174-802-11ac-wireless-network/870423#870423
And reviewing the file/comments in this PR: https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware/pull/3

I ended up running an Ethernet wire :triumph:

I will think about, what to do. Thanks for your help

Seems either the card is failing, or a kernel driver/firmware bug. I would check upstream (kernel) reported issues and see if they’re being worked on or not, or possibly replacing the device, if possible.
