I have a wifi modem that has 2 networks, a 2.4ghz, and a 5ghz. The 2.4ghz one works fine.

Looking at the dmesg log, I can see that it authenticating and associating as it does on the 2.4ghz, but after associating, it deauth by local choice, and then try to connect again.

  • Have you tried prioritising 5GHz band? – Kulfy Jul 11 at 18:43
  • The 2.4 and 5ghz networks have different SSIDs. It happens even when the 2.4ghz is not configured. – João Mosmann Jul 11 at 20:07
