Wireguard client reconnects after working for a few days with failure

Hey guys, I have a problem with Wireguard client. The situation is when the router is connected to Wireguard server after some time like 1-3 days it has a status “reconnecting” but reconnection itself doesn’t work I always need to turn off the Wireguard client, reboot router and connect again then it works.

I’ve seen the change log of software 4.4.5 and it says that there is a fix “Fix WireGuard cannot reconnect after working for two days.” GL.iNet download center

But it didn’t work properly before 4.4.5 and on v4.4.5 as well. Any ideas?

Router is GL-MT3000 / Beryl AX
Version of software 4.4.5

Hi do you use multi-wan with repeater? What’s your VPN service provider?

For better reconnection while network issue happens. Try removing listen port and setting lower MTU of the wireguard conf, like

The server created by my own on windows by using this package GitHub - micahmo/WgServerforWindows: Wg Server for Windows (WS4W) is a desktop application that allows running and managing a WireGuard server endpoint on Windows

Interesting fact that while gl-inet tries to reconnect - I can connect for example from my phone to wireguard server. At least it means that server works properly.

Got it, I’ll give it a try and will watch for it :blush:
