I have a strange bug.

A WiFi connection, forwarded through 2/3 repeater, stops working after some time (sometimes seconds / sometimes hours). After the connection breaks, the whole networking stops. The settings App closes when I try to tap the WiFi symbol and the Mobile Networking section tells me that networking is not available. I have to reboot the Phone to get it working again. I can reproduce this everytime with variating times. Sometimes, it happends after it looses the WiFi signal for a short time (coffee break)

I'm using the opt-in beta

It seems that this WiFi is the only one that breaks my connections

I don't know how to get additional Information on this problem. But maybe you could suggest something, so I could gather information to eliminate this bug.

I think that this is related with the general conman issues and is simply another symptom of the incorrect handling of connection switching between WiFi/mobile data along with connection behaviour when the phone goes into the deep sleep mode. Please consider voting also for this bug so it will hopefully get Jolla's attention and a better resolution:

This bug is trying to be a "Please fix the conman" generic request. So after that we will get reliable data connection in our smartphone which is the really basic backend of the smartphone experience

I have/had the same problem some weeks ago. You can try to remove/move all files in the /var/lib/connman and restart the device. In my case it worked, but in the end i wiped the device and made a system reset.

In general: the stability of network connections (especially wifi) is dreadful and something the Jolla Team should really focus on as this is a mobile device and making wireless connections is THE crucial purpose of the device.

I'll try removing those files and let you know how it works out.l

Didn't work. At first it even wont be a saved connection. This worked on the 2nd try but still kills my networking.

I'll report back if the problem persists after the BIG update.
