It is always a security risk and should never be used without a full VPN from the client out. Never trust just the encryption built into the wifi protocols. It cannot be trusted. Every year, we learn about different problems with wifi security. Even the newest protocols have been hacked and remain unsecured today.

    To the computer, there's no difference between wired and powerline ethernet. It doesn't know anything about powerline.

    I haven't used a GUI to manage network connections on Linux in at least 10 yrs. For wifi, I use a TUI, for wired, I use the config files in /etc/. Only portable systems use DHCP, with reservations. All the others use static IPs controlled by each server. DHCP servers fail sometimes and I've seen what happens to large networks when that happens - servers start dropping offline as they attempt to renew the connections and get current IPs/netmasks/gateways/DNS servers. Freshly booted systems don't join the network. It isn't pretty. We all learn from our experiences.
    Hi The Fu

    I admire your professional approach. I am not at your level.
    Of course a LAN is a LAN even if a powerline is present.
    The house here is old and the wiring is a mess. I have 3 fuseboxes! I cannot track down the cause of the powerline problems.
    I acknowledge the wifi security risk, Luckily I only have 2 neighbours in range and they are old folks.

    As for the GUI, I try to use it for everything. I work very slowly with the terminal.

    Thanks for your help

    All the bad stuff seems to be at 09.27. It is strange that the GUI worked for a couple of minutes.
    The kern.log at the time of the crash:

    Re: sudo fails and Kernel bug

    Seems clear. The problem is with a USB device using the ath9k driver.
    Code:
               Device-2: Qualcomm Atheros TP-Link TL-WN821N v3 / TL-WN822N v2 802.11n [Atheros AR7010+AR9287] type: USB 
               driver: ath9k_htc bus ID: 1-6:2 chip ID: 0cf3:7015 serial: <filter> 
               IF: wlx74ea3a8f3e6d state: up mac: <filter>
    That is one of the problems. We don't know if it is the only problem.

    Did you ever try the mainline kernel? Your issue sure sounds like that bug report I referred you to earlier.
    Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.

    Sure does.
    For the record, the patch was merged to v5.4.47 (and other newer kernels)
    5.4.0-42-generic is the current 20.04 default kernel, so going out of the way to get a newer one will be needed to use that wifi usb device.

    Thanks Doug S

    I noted your proposal but for me it looks a bit heavy so I was exploring other options first.

    See my next post for these steps.

    OK, let me take these steps:

    - switch back to the LAN (powerline) connection
    - upgrade to the 20.04.1 point release (for some reason I missed the release announcement)

    Edit: Whoops - it seems that I have the point release already !

    It is actually pretty trivial to try, but O.K. Watch for kernel 5.4.0-44.48 (= mainline 5.4.55), which has been in proposed since August 10th, and so should be out soon. It will have the fix.
    Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.

    24 hours and no crash.

    Can my problems be caused by a rogue wifi USB stick?

    For the record it is a TP-Link TL-WN821N

    Hi Doug S
    This is what I have:
    cat /proc/version_signature
    Ubuntu 5.4.0-42.46-generic 5.4.44
    and this is what you suggest?
    linux-generic-hwe-20.04_5.4.0.44.48_amd64.deb 5.4.0.44.48 amd64 Ubuntu Proposed Main Official
