Some times wi-fi flickering on BPI-M64

Hello Bananapi Team,

I have a BPI-M64 single board computer. I have been installed Ubuntu Mate operating system on BPI-M64. But some times wi-fi flickering on BPI-M64. I mean some times wifi is not connecting. What can I do to overcome this problem.

Thanks and Regards,

Amar Pulli.

Hi, I have the same problem. My M64 not sometimes, often disconnect from Wifi. Have you got any solution for this problem?


I think I read somewhere that it might be a powersaving issue, just not sure anymore where and what the solution was, but might be as simple as

sudo iw dev wlan0 set power_save off

or the equivalent entry wireless-power off in /etc/network/interfaces.

Some questions to help finding the origin of the issue:

  • However do you use a static configuration or DHCP?
  • Do you use th built in antenna or did you attach a dedicated one?
  • Did you run a sudo dmesg when it failed, to see any more details about why it dropped?
  • You are using which OS and which kernel (uname -a)?
  • Do you have both eth0 and wlan0 running on the same subnet?
  • What is your WLAN occupancy?
