I have been getting this problem for a few days now when I was using fedora 35 it never happened only in the last few days before the update did it happen and continued in f36 too .
My WiFi never disconnects on other networks but when I use mobile hotstop this occurs also I think it happens after I have put my laptop to sleep . Can someone help me out . I also tried checking journalctl logs but could not make out much .
My thought is that the hot spot is purposefully disconnecting you b/c it doesn’t want you to use data against your monthy cap when you’re not active.
Welcome to ask.
I do invite you to read this
# if you not done allready. start-here
The information you gave us is very vague to give you a clear pointer in the right direction.
What i found with wifi problems and has a solution you can find here:
after trying all above. The answer was very simple: to change the security on the phone only to WPA2-personal.
So could you please give us more info’s as :
inxi -Fzx in terminal and post the output as </> Preformatted text here.
to see how your specs are.
Side-note: I also had a wifi issue in
#F36, but that was not really severe and could have been something different:
I upgraded from Fedora 35 to 36 and has no WiFi connection suddenly…
The WiFi was listed under “Saved networks” (I double-checked) and IIRC it also tried to auto-connected (i.e. it could also find the network, it was shown in the list), however, it showed the password prompt. Despite being “saved”. (It was working properly in Fedora 35.)
First I dismissed the popup and clicked again to connect, it showed it again. Then I checked the things I’ve just said and then I just tried entering the pass…
