Wireless goes crazy - wireless devices visible as disabled but actually works, but only some networks

Hey there,
Sorry for compliated topic, I couldn't think of a better way to shortly describe what's happening.

Router: Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800
Firmware Version: OpenWrt 19.07.6 r11278-8055e38794 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch git-21.018.57536-6ba9740
Kernel Version: 4.14.215

So I am having issues with wireless networks. I have 2 5GHz and 3 2.4GHz wireless networks.

After around 24-48h usually the 2nd 2.4GHz network breaks - devices cannot connet (usually they are stuck on "obtaining IP address", but on my PC even with static address I cannot connect. Sometimes all 2.4GHz break and only main (1st configured) 5GHz network seems to work.

On my old router (R6220, few older versions of OpenWRT) I was having exactly the same issue. At this point I wasn't able to access web panel nor ssh. Web panel was returning Out of memory info.

On new router I can still access everything. Memory usage seems to be a bit higher than usual (currently 104MB, it seems to slowly grow as it was 90MB when I started writing this post).

What's weird that Luci reports all wireless devices of the router as "not active" and networks as "disabled", which is of course not true.

Log is spammed with something like this: (probably because of devices trying to reconnect)

Extra info: I configured new router from scratch. I did not export-import config, so there is no chance something broken was imported from old router or something. Wired stuff seems never to break.

General idea of my config: Few interfaces:

  • a typical network - main wireless for 2.4 & 5GHz uses this interface
  • network for guests, everyone isolated from each other - there is 2.4GHz and & 5GHz networks for this interface as well - those 2 generally breaks first
  • iot network - clients has no access to anything. A server in the main network can access those devices. There is only 2.4GHz wireless network for it - today it's broken, but usually it works all the time.
  • iot for wired devices - two ethernet ports are setup to use a VLAN to allow having iot devices connected with cable - these works all the time.

The last point of this list weren't configured on old router but wireless was still breaking so I guess it's not related in any way.

Output of: uci export network - click (post too long)
In the interfaces section of luci I can see that my extra interfaces could not detect wireless devices, BUT LAN doesn't have this error:

I will keep the router without restarting until everything crashes (this new router never actually crashed yet).
Edit: i will actually reboot it tomorrow, because it's very limiting when most of my devices are not working now :frowning:

I hope someone can help me or give at least some directions where I can look.

How many wireless devices do you have? I know the wireless on this device uses the ath10k and that it loves to suck down memory (based on reading the forum). You might try a reboot every night at 2am... If that fixes it then it's likely a memory leak or a driver issue... You could then report back and maybe help someone identify the particular issue.

Do you mean how many clients are connected?
Usually around 15 in total, 13 to 2.4GHz network.

Memory usage seems fine, new router has 512MB of RAM with 400MB free even right now, on peak memory usage.

reboot every night at 2am

today it crashed within 19h of reboot. so i'd have to reboot every 12h... which seems silly, because i've spend a lot of money on the router, because i wanted to have a reliable device with zero downtimes (router currently even run on UPS to ensure no downtime)

If that fixes

well.. definitely. rebooting is what i was always doing and it was fixing the issue... for a while.

You could then report back and maybe help someone identify the particular issue.

Report where exactly? Anyway - i'd like to gather some useful logs/debug info if this is really a problem somewhere. If nobody can help me with this problem I may at least collect some data before I will try to report this somewhere.

Yeah I wasn't thinking of rebooting as a "fix" more as a test of whether it's something like a memory leak or an otherwise progressive use of resources.

Sounds likely. I think we need someone with more experience with the ath10k drivers and knowledge. I know there are two or three versions of these drivers, but I don't know the relationship between them or which one is standard these days.

another option to try, just for testing, is to use one ssid on 5 ghz, and one ssid on 2 ghz radios.

i may try that soon. Debugging those issues (that happen randomly) when I actually need the network to work is troublesome, but I will try that if nothing else will be suggested here

btw: is there any well-defined limit on the number of wireless networks i can create? i guess it depends on the hardware, not the software?
