Jetson Nano suddenly switches into flight mode or is not able to find its wifi chip

Hey there,

We are using a Jetson Nano with the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 Wifi-Chip: Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265

We setup the Jetson in such a way that it automatically creates a hotspot when starting up such that we can access the Jetson with other laptops. We did this in the following way:

  1. We’ve opened the Jetson Wifi settings and set a username and password
  2. Then in the terminal we’ve typed nm-connection-editor
  3. Then we found the name of the hotspot (we assumed that it is MyHotSpot)
  4. Then we’ve opened the startup-application programm and clicked on add where we then entered nmcli connection up MyHotSpot and clicked on save.

Now from time to time, it happens that the Jetson switches in flight mode or that it’s not able to find its wifi chip and since we’re operating the Jetson in headless mode, we can’t just switch the Wifi back on without connecting the Jetson back to a screen and keyboard. Sometimes we even have to restart the Jetson to make the hotspot work again.

Has anyone an idea what the cause of this problem is or has anyone experienced something like that?

Kind regards,
