- TP-Link TL-WR1043ND v3, also reported for v1

- LEDE Reboot 17.01.4 r3560-79f57e422d / LuCI lede-17.01 branch (git-17.290.79498-d3f0685)

Steps to reproduce:

    6. no MAC Filter
    7. no advanced Settings
  2. Advanced Settings:

Expected Behaviour:
- Clients may connect to Wifi and access Local Network and Internet (if set up)

Actual Behavior:
- works in the first place
- Wifi becomes unusable within 24 hours (sometimes only minutes after setup, sometimes after hours)

  1. no disconnection
  2. ping times go up
  3. package losses

Thanks for the report but why didn't you comment on one of the related bugs? Instead of four "random ath9k wifi issues" bugs we know have five...

801 device use ath10k driver
1373 device use rt2x00 driver
1582 device use marvell driver

so, completely unrelated

1180 already contains possible solution, have you tried it?

@Jo-Philipp Wich: because I was not sure, whether it is the same bug. Obviously, some think it is not. Usually Bugtrackers allow to merge issues?

@psyborg: Yes, I have seen that these are different drivers. But the problem
described is very similar. Maybe it is not a problem with the driver (which would explain the different behaviours depending on configuration)? I'm not an expert, just a tought.
I also read the proposed workaround (it is not a real solution, is it?), but as I wrote, I'm not an expert. I have no clue how to "remove 305-ath9k-limit-retries-for-powersave-response-frames.patch" or what "by forcing ps=false" means.

Maybe someone can help me out here? If so, I'm willing to test if this works for me and report here.

I just noticed I forgot to mention the problem in the task title - is there a way to alter it?
