Issue #1886 has been updated by Joachim de Groot.

Description updated

It still happens on current master, but only when working on a wireless device. Wired interfaces are never affected. 
I tried to do a debug dhclient, but it seems to be permanently stuck in poll().
Bug #1886: ath/wpa_supplicant/dhclient lost connection

Author: elekktretterr elekktretterr
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 


This is on i386/master from about a week ago. It's an SMP laptop. For some
reason after about 6 hours of running, wireless drops out, but
wpa_supplicant is still running, and dhclient is running at near 100% CPU.
It's fixed by kill -HUP wpa_supplicant and dhclient to bring the network
up and reacquire IP.
