Re: The IWD thread

Any update on this  for anyone "in the know"?  I am having this exact issue.  I am running a MacBook Pro with the broadcom-wl-dkms package. I am also using the iwd 1.0 package.  Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.  It has been pointed out that this post may not belong in this thread.  I don't think this was a thread hijack attempt; but why do you feel this has to do with IWD? 
I would guess this is a case of multiple things fighting for control of the wireless interface.  Please search these forums for threads having to do with disconnects and multiple things that control the WiFi causing conflicts.   If this is not the case, please provide an argument as to why you suspect IWD.   Otherwise, it would make sense to split this post to its own thread.

Since 0.20, iwd is renaming my network interfaces despite the "use_default_interface=true" option in my config. If anyone knows a fix, it would be appreciated.

There have been a few upstream changes lately related to renaming network interfaces. Here's what I observed with iwd 1.0-3. First, the arch linux package follows upstream by not providing /etc/iwd/main.conf anymore. Secondly, upstream now provides /usr/lib/systemd/network/80-iwd.link. I could only get IWD to keep my wlp2s0 interface name by removing the 80-iwd.link AND by setting UseDefaultInterface=true in /etc/iwd/main.conf. Note the changed syntax, it now uses CamelCasing instead of the underscore format: see here. Hope this helps.

Thank you. Through your post and the wiki I finally decided to fix this today. smile

I don't really understand why iwd wants to rename my interfaces in the first place, especially when it clearly isn't necessary.

In iwd - State of the Union on YouTube Marcel Holtmann answers this to some degree (link to the exact part when he is asked this question - 19:08). I also wish there was a blog post or a paragraph on Arch Wiki about this. I still have this issue with iwd 1.03 and systemd-networkd - i don't think it is going away any time soon. Their eventual plan is to manage wireless devices in iwd.

That is correct - thank you thx1138! The link above is correct - I just assumed that "&t=1148" in YouTube URL stands for 11:48, but it is 1148 seconds from the beginning of the video. I updated the post.
