• Hey Everyone

    I have an Alix 2d2 running PFsense 2.3 with an atheros wireless card installed and it connects fine with everything that I own.  However at random after a period of time I cannot connect my kindle fire devices to the wifi as they can no longer authenticate.  The only way to get them to authenticate again is to reboot the alix board.  I copied this info from the "wireless" system logs.  Note this only happens with these Amazon fire device models and no other amazon fire devices or any other devices for that matter are affected.  Rebooting or forgetting the wireless connection does not resolve the issue for the Amazon fire devices.  Only rebooting the Alix board resolves the issue for about a day before it happens again.
