NetBSD Trurl 6.1.3 NetBSD 6.1.3 (MYKERNEL) #0: Sat Feb 8 16:18:14 CET 2014
When connected to network via WiFi (in my case: using Linksys WUSB54GC-EU
"dongle"), I noticed, that when the machine is left idle for about 1 hour, it
is enough to lose connection to network. The interface is still in "active"
state, it still has its IP address assigned by DHCP server - but there is no
network connection anymore.
Tried it several times - both on shipped GENERIC kernel, and now also with my
Easy: use Linksys USG dongle, connect to network, leave machine idle about 1
hour. After this time the network connection seem to be terminated.
There's a workaround: it's possible to keep network connection by keeping some
little activity - for example: in any of terminals one can leave "ping -i 60
www.some.site.com". Such humble activity seems to be enough to maintain
