I hope your all doing well.
Before some weeks i did buy my first raspi, and I'm quite happy with it.
As my starter Project, i wanted to create an Accespoint out of it, and after some days reading and learning and killing my wifi drivers over and over again, i finally got it working.
So, it is working now. But not entirely.
This is my setting: I did configure the raspi on my home router with 5GHz wifi connection.
Wlan 0 is the internal antenna Wlan 1 is the dongle to share the connection.
( quick question: am i able to increase the power of the antenna? )
So far so good, i did install and configure hostapd,dnsmasq,dhcpcd.conf,rc.local and created an autorun so it is going to be started up after the boot has finished.
Till here it's working
All devices have connection but the maximum i could reach was 85-100 mbit.
( Another quick question: is it possible to increase the speed? I only could do it by overclocking the raspi - but is this realy the only way to achieve more speeds? ).
Now to my problem:
The setup is working, with my router 5GHz. Now i change the wpa_supplicant to my 5GHz Hotspot of my phone (Samsung S9 with root)
And boom, I can't find the Wifi
Now a big list of troubleshooting did start, from killing my pi by overvolting and rpi-update'ing it, buying a new pi (same problem), change the OS (from raspbian to openplotter), disableing power save, using bash scripts which "scan" automaticly - cause i read about this on the net. But nothing did solve the problem: I can't find the wifi.
Then, the first positive result, after changing the wifi country code to US in the wpa_supplicant - i found my wifi (im living in germany)
I thought great, i've done it - raspi connected to the wifi and i was happy and tried to run the speedtest-cli. And now is where the things collapsed again.
I lost the connection to the hotspot (no other device is having such behaviour with my hotspot, only the raspi and also only on the 5GHz network)
After grinding the internet for some informations, i found out that the problem is: carrier lost. The Dongle on the PI, is able to connect to the same hotspot and does not loose its connection, never.
And everything startet again, searching internet, killing my wifi, restoring another OS, ... repeat, disabling the power saving and doing a hell lot of things.
I'm looking now for a solution for over a week and now I have reached a point where i say - i need help.
Did install raspbian lite. Another os, same problem.
I did find out, that this problem also appears on my 5ghz router and not only on my 5ghz phone hotspot. Also the country code to us is also no problem, as im unable to change it on my phone (at least i do not know how) (samsung s9, terminal+root available)
I also did set iwconfig wlan0 power off and no difference Another test on watching the wpa doing its job, showed me that the carrier lost occurs every 1minute an 10-30 second. So there is definetly happening something at the 1 minute mark.
Actually im looking help on 3 different forums, cause i really want to get this solved.
I much appreciate any kind of help.
Please treat me as a noob, cause its my first time linux since 3 weeks now, and if you tell me do that and this, without any informations- im going to need a long time to respond, because i have to grind the net on how to do what you are asking me. Thank you for understanding.
Kind regards and a nice evening
