Description uzytkownik2@gmail.com 2020-04-22 06:38:44 UTC
I have Qualcomm Atheros AR93xx Wireless Network Adapter. After update to 5.5.x and 5.6.x it stopped being able to associate with AP:

Logs repeat:

wlp5s0: authenticate with XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
wlp5s0: send auth to XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX (try 1/3)
wlp5s0: send auth to XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX (try 2/3)
wlp5s0: send auth to XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX (try 3/3)
wlp5s0: authentication with XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX timed out

Downgrading to 5.4 kernel fixed the probem

This regression was also added in the 5.4.x branch.

Reproduced both on nixos (5.4.70) and gentoo (listed above).

NixOS have slightly different symptom - the kernel log suggests that card authenticated but wpa_supplicant on nixos shows NL80211_CMD_NOTIFY_CQM.

Maybe that issues are related to this one, too:
You can find dmesg log parts if you follow the links.

I noticed that the driver stops transmission under heavy tx load and died.

I don't want to open a new report for that issue, as long as we don't know exactly if this problems are related to each other.
