Recently my FreedomBox machine, which acts as a home WiFi network router, automatically upgraded via Debian buster-backports from version 20.7 to 20.8 and it rebooted. Ever since the upgrade, I cannot reliably use the WiFi network.
Steps to Reproduce
- Have your FreedomBox configured to act as an access point and provide WiFi connectivity to other wireless devices at home.
- Upgrade from version 20.7 to 20.8.
- Connect via a device (e.g., a laptop) to your WiFi network provided by the FreedomBox machine.
- Try to ping from your laptop anything on the Internet, e.g.,
ping -c4 debian.org.
- Observe the ping packets not getting through.
I expected for the ping to come through.
The packets are lost.
- FreedomBox version: 20.8
- Hardware: PC Engines APU 3C4
How did you install FreedomBox?: by running
apt install freedomboxin Debian Buster.
- I brought this issue up in the version 20.8 announcement thread, but I guess it should be discussed in its own thread.
