Wifi crashes when opening the network displays app

Hi. I'am running Zorin OS 16 Pro on an Dell XPS 9500
When i'am opening the Network Displays app the wifi seems to somehow crash.
Running
sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service
Gets the wifi back up.
Anhy ideas why this is happening?

Can you check Device supports active Monitor (You may need to scroll down a bit...):

iw list

Also, please check here if this driver is a better match for your system:

Could not find the Line Device Supports active monitor so i guess not

Also this computer av a Killer Wifi card i think so i dont know if the Realtek driver will work? :slight_smile:

It's such a common one though... see what happens when I get into a hurry...

What model of Killer Wireless is it?

Off-hand, looks like Killer Wireless should work with the 5.11 kernel (Zorin OS) as it was patched in kernel 5.10. That is pretty recent, though...
But you may need to update the BIOS firmware on the computer for it to work.:expressionless:
At least you have net connection.

It is the Killer AX1650s
Yes this is not an critical issue at all for me, avoiding the network display app is no problem.

Do you think this info might help?

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion.
It seems the system already autodetected and is running this driver i think.

So it is working the way it should now?

No. This is the driver it has choosen. So this is the config that does not work.

However it seems to bee only the Network Display App so it is not a big deal for me.

Yes, this is a strange symptom. I have never heard of this particular issue before. I agree that at least it is not a show stopper... It's annoying to not know something, though. :wink:

Hehe yes agreed.

I have this problem on an HP Omen Gaming Laptop. It's a bit annoying as I actually want to stream to my TV :frowning: I've raised a ticket because I have the Pro version of ZOrin OS
