WPA-EAP Rekey on MR vs Z1/3

Running into an issue where Z1/3 wireless clients (Win10) are getting disconnected momentarily every 60 minutes.  This was mostly not noticed by end-users, that is until jabber wouldn't reconnect after this.  It would require a full disconnect from the SSID and reconnect to get Jabber to be able communicate again.

 

We have a WPA-EAP SSID setup.  We've recently updated radius to supply session and idle timeout we've configured of 720 minutes.  

 

It appears the MRs are honoring this session timeout and not forcing a rekey during the day.

 

However, however the Zs do not appear to be honoring this session/idle timeout setting.  We have a ton of Zs that are doing this.  Enterprise wide we are running v15.44

 

Anyone run into this issue?  I do have a case open, but they are having to gather a ton of different captures to provide dev group.

Out of curiosity , what is the NIC and model of the Windows computer ?

They are several different, but the one I have been working on with support is a Dell Precision 5550 running an Intel WiFi 6 AX201 card.

Boom ! I knew it !  There is a known bug on the intel AX200 and AX201 card !  Intel is releasing( or has released ) a new driver that fixes that issue ! We have the exact same issues. Upon re-auth the clients get disconnected 🙂

Thanks for the quick reply.  I'll look into the driver issues.  Would still love the Z to be able to change session timeouts like the MRs.

I'm pretty sure that the timer is fixed. Same as the MX ! 


I will try to forward the documentation about the bug. Check if you have any other wireless NIC that are not AX200 or AX201 in the meantime
