I'm getting a problem with a mobile phone and other clients. After a period of non use the phone's connection shows no internet. I have to switch off wifi on the android phone and switch on to get the connection back. Is there a way to fix this?

Here is and example from the nwa1123 log. I'm running with firmeware V2.12(AAOX.0).

I also have the problem of not being able to automatically set the time even though the dns is and the default router is provided as The NTP is enabled and a server chosen from the list.

    Hi @nigpig

    Sending out deauth message is a normal behavior for our device. Here is the explanation. Since AP will not know when the station will leave the area, to keep the list fresh, there is a mechanism to kick out the station when the AP does not receive any packet from the station after a period of time. That's why you saw AP sent the deauth to inform the station. However, it seems your Android phone will ignore the deauth message, so you have to switch off/on the WiFi to connect again.

    About the NTP, I enabled the "NTP Client Update", choose the "NTP server", adjust the "Time Zone", then click "APPLY". The time sync successfully. Could you let me know your steps?
