Issues with the hardware or operating system¶
Issue 1: Docker fails to start after a reboot¶
This can happen if either the docker.pid file or the docker-containerd.pid file was not properly cleaned up on system reboot, which causes the Docker daemon to conclude that it is already running.
To fix this, remove the pid file on the router and reboot.
sudo rm /var/snap/docker/current/run/docker.pid sudo rm /var/snap/docker/current/run/docker/libcontainerd/docker-containerd.pid sudo reboot
Occasionally Docker will crash and not restart properly even after a reboot. We find that disabling and re-enabling the service helps in such cases.
sudo snap disable docker sudo snap enable docker
Issue 2: WiFi devices are not detected after a reboot¶
Occasionally, when routers start up the WiFi devices are not detected properly.
When this happens the command
iw dev will display nothing instead of the
expected devices. This is usually remedied by rebooting. A global setting to
reboot the router if WiFi devices are missing is available on the router
