DaveMcDave Posted August 27, 2016 Share Posted August 27, 2016 Okay, so I just got this. I'm familiar with how it works, but I'm having an issue with wlan1 dying after using it for a while. I've tried soft-resets, hard-resets. I've tried testing and making sure that no additional plugins/modules were installed and I can replicate the issue every time. The dmesg log has nothing of interest, no errors, just... 'usual business'. I've seen a bunch of other users in here having similar issues, but let me show what I've done and what I've discovered so far. Hopefully someone can give me some direction other than "It's broken" because I have a hard time believing that so many units could be shipped with the same issue. 1 - I'm on software 1.1.1 2 - I'm running Zorin 11 linux (Based on Ubuntu 15.10) 3 - I did the things mentioned above (One of the symptoms was having the recon searches coming back with no results, or moving to 100% and never updating past that) 4 - Once I figured out that the hardware seems to be dying, I decided to SSH into it and manually start scanning using airodump-ng. I SSH'd into the Nano, put wlan1 into monitor mode (airmon-ng) and started scanning for networks. This worked fine initially. After monitoring a network for a while, maybe 2-10 minutes, airodump-ng stops giving results. As soon as this happens, I can take wlan1 out of monitor mode and put it back into monitor mode, but still the same problem of no clients found. (Just a blank page) 5 - I tried soft-resetting it, no luck. The only way I've found to get it to come back is to hard reset or unplug from USB It 'feels' intuitively to me as though the wifi chip is overheating, though I have no good evidence to support what I'm suggesting. That's just kind of how it's behaving. I really want to say it's a firmware problem, but the fact that nothing changes and it just suddenly stops monitoring data packets leads me to believe otherwise. I can provide any logs needed, screenshots, more detailed steps, I can do troubleshooting... I'm pretty handy with the terminal for the most part, just let me know something I might have missed.
