I connect to a WPA2 enterprise network on Debian Jessie using Network Manager on dhclient. It works fine until the lease expires:

Then the DHCP requests fail, until I disconnect from the network and reconnect. I am on kernel 4.18, and I have the latest iwlwifi drivers for an Intel 7265D chipset.

  • Looking at the same issue right now; the renewed lease seems blissfully unaware of wpa_supplicant's presence. Actually stopping & restarting the dhclient brings the network back to life ... annoying.
