    Edison wifi delay and power saving


      Hi all.


      I connected Edison and PC to the same wireless router. But I got very long network delay and packet loss(about 13%) when ping from PC to Edison.

      When ping from Edison to PC, it works well without pakcet loss. What's the possible reason for this issue?

      output of 'wpa_cli statu':

      root@edison:~# wpa_cli status

      Selected interface 'wlan0'







      key_mgmt=WPA2/IEEE 802.1X/EAP




      Supplicant PAE state=AUTHENTICATED


      EAP state=SUCCESS

      selectedMethod=25 (EAP-PEAP)

      EAP TLS cipher=AES256-SHA

      EAP-PEAPv1 Phase2 method=MSCHAPV2




      Here is the output:(edison ip is, and PC ip is

      I have read another disscussion about 'edison wifi lateny' https://communities.intel.com/message/252491#252491

      1) I have flashed the latest edison image (edison-image-ww36-14.zip), but the issuse remain.

      2) I have tried both external power and USB to power Edison, but the issue remain.


      Is this issue about power saving or something else? If so, how to turn off the power saving mode on Edison?

      Any reply are welcomed. Thans very much.
