  • Hi guys,

    I installed magi mirror on my rpi3 (jessie) and every thig works well until the wifi randomly goes down.

    The rpi3 is still alive but I cannot reach it over SSH.

    I set the wifi power management to off and I followed all indication/tutorials. But I cannot solve this problem.

    Can you help me some expert with a workaround or a tip?

    Thank you very much.

    Best regards,
    Noro

    Did you follow the guidelines for disabling wifi power saving mode?
    If it still fails, you could follow this approach: http://alexba.in/blog/2015/01/14/automatically-reconnecting-wifi-on-a-raspberrypi/
    Maybe replace the ip with the ip of your router to ping a local device in case internet connection dropped at that point.



  • I disabled the wifi power saving. I will setup the script in crontab to check the connection as you suggested. Thank you.
