unfortunately I am also one of the sufferers where the core update 170 has more or less shut down my internet connection.
I am using a Raspberry Pi 4 with a USB Ethernet Interface on
The internet connection runs for about 3-4 hours. Then the connection breaks down. And I have to reboot the IPFire again.
Under /var/log/Messages I find this:
Sep 26 18:13:05 ipfire dhcpcd.exe: red0 has been brought down (STOP)
Sep 26 18:13:21 ipfire dhcpcd: red0: waiting for carrier
Sep 26 18:13:24 ipfire kernel: ax88179_178a 2-1:1.0 red0: ax88179 - Link status is: 1
Sep 26 18:13:24 ipfire dhcpcd: red0: carrier acquired
Is there already a workaround or wait for update 171?
That sounds like you are using the browse button in the Restore section of the backup page to select the iso and then pressing restore. If that is what you are doing then it does not work that way.
You need to download your backup file from the WUI backup page and save it on the computer you are using for the WUI Web Access. Choose the file with the date/time from before you did the CU170 upgrade.
Then you need to do a fresh install of IPFire Core Update 169 and after doing the setup and rebooting go to the WUI backup page. Use the browse button to go and select the backup file that you saved previously.
Then press the restore icon and your configuration and settings files will all be restored into the fresh install. That will take you back to the CU169 status you had before doing the CU170 upgrade.
First of all, sorry for the late feedback.
Thanks for the detailed information, I will definitely take it to heart.
Just in the second I connected my new Realtek USB adapter and assigned with “Setup”.
Worked and worked very well in the first step.
I will observe whether this now runs better with the new adapter. Will report again.
