Microcode SW error (3.00 KB, text/plain)

Description Rthomsen 2019-06-27 16:44:46 UTC
After upgrading to 5.1.x kernel my wifi-connection stalls when downloading at high speeds after a few seconds. The connection is not dropped, but the speed slows down to zero and I can't open any websites at all. Disconnecting and re-connecting to the access point fixes the problem. This has only happened when downloading torrents at speeds >6MB/s. Downgrading to any 5.0.x kernel fixes the problem. I have the most recent firmware (iwlwifi-7265D-29.ucode).

I tried disabling powersave and tcp_ecn but it didn't solve the problem.

Also there is no output in dmesg or journalctl when the connections stalls.

Microcode SW error

I noticed that sometimes when the problem occurs (though not always) there is a microcode error in the kernel log.

Ah - this has been fixed already.

Please check https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=203315.

I am marking this as duplicate, you can re-open if the fix from https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=203315 doesn't help.
