Frequent disconnection, after getting new router

Recommended Posts

HI,

I am experiencing Frequent disconnection and reconnection, after my isp installed a new router. 

I suspect it's because of my ISP dns. (I have not changed it to cloudflare or quad9 yet which I had before). Could this be issue?

It's on both of my ubuntu servers (2 old Laptops one connected via ethernet, another is via wifi ). They worked perfectly, and were connected for weeks. 

Is there any way to drill down where the disconnection occurs? Is it on my server end? my router? or airvpn end?

I also have ipv6 disabled and  some other settings -- 


# Some network settings
net.ipv4.tcp_fin_timeout = 20
net.ipv4.tcp_slow_start_after_idle = 0
net.ipv4.tcp_tw_reuse = 1
net.ipv4.tcp_fastopen=3
net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control=bbr

net.core.rmem_max = 16777216

# Tells the system whether it should start at the default window size only for new TCP connections or also for existing TCP connections that have been idle for too long. Default: 1

You didn't post any logs, so not sure what's triggering the disconnect.

Please don't set all these weird network settings and try again. I mean, do you even know the difference between cubic and bbr congestion control algorithms? Can you explain congestion control to begin with?

This is a particularly interesting line indicating you copied those settings from somewhere. You normally know which Linux kernel you're running on and can decide whether this option should be there or not (or at least commented out).

We can safely assume that it's not, otherwise the forums would be swarmed with "I have the same issue" posts. :)

How to view these logs? where are they located? (ubuntu 20.04)

Using Wireguard, the logs should be in the journal.

# journalctl -k --grep wireguard

Turns out there is a setting on my router for "some" devices. I turned it on, and my connections seem to stay stabilize my connection. 

"Always Broadcast DHCP Server"

I also added my laptops LAN addresses in QoS setting, to give it a higher priority.

I think that one is the real MVP. Can't imagine the DHCP thing to be of help, unless it's not the VPN connection breaking but the physical one to your router.
