Have to remove/replug USB wifi after reboot. Bad hardware or known issue?


#1

I have an A905x (S905). After almost every reboot I have to unplug and reinsert the USB wifi adapter otherwise it does not come online. I see this behavior on all 8.95.2+ roms. I haven’t tested any older ones.

I was wondering if anyone else had seen an issue like this, or if my hardware is flaky.

I have the same issue with a AC1200 USB D-Link dwa-182 and a tp-link t4u AC1200 usb adapter.
I have tried adding an external powered usb hub in case I was facing a power issue, but there was no change.

I made a autostart.sh script with this code as a work around:
#!/bin/sh
echo -n usb1 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/unbind
echo -n usb1 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/bind

However I did not see this behavior on my other S905x box.
Sadly it was damaged, so I have to use this older s905 box for now.

Anyone else seeing this annoyance?
