Description:
A few minutes after being connected to a wifi network my /var/log/everything fills up with:

Sep 24 00:29:07 idw kernel: [ 1956.861299] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: fail to flush all tx fifo queues

And the transfer drops to 0B/s, but the network stays connected. It sometimes recovers and the speed picks up.

If I leave it stuck, this appears:

I have those symptoms too in a k53sv. By the moment I've managed to get rid of the problem by following this: http://elijatech.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/stop-ubuntu-11-10-killing-your-network/

So, I've created "/etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf" with "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" inside.

That was yesterday and, to this date, I've had no problem at all (it may be just coincidence, but may be worth a try).
Comment by Amitav (amitavmohanty01) - Thursday, 08 November 2012, 15:14 GMT
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=805285#c16 might be relevant.

I was having a similar issue. After switching between networks multiple times, I was getting multiples lines in logs saying the following.

kernel: iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: fail to flush all tx fifo queues

At times, I am not able to connect to any wifi when this happens
Comment by Benjamin Hodgetts (Enverex) - Thursday, 22 November 2012, 22:02 GMT
Experiencing the same issue on an Intel 2230 (Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)). It seems to happen if I push a few hundred meg through in short order with bluetooth running at the same time.

Kagarrache: You are aware that "11n_disable=1" disables wireless N? Therefore it's not really a solution at all, unless you're happy for <54Mb connections and forcing your router into Wireless G mode.
Comment by Amitav (amitavmohanty01) - Friday, 23 November 2012, 09:39 GMT
Yeah, disabling N mode is can be an option only when N mode networks are not available to you. I, however, do have access to N mode networks from time to time. Also, cutting off a feature is always a temporary workaround but can never be termed as a solution.

Status on 3.7.x?
Comment by Amitav (amitavmohanty01) - Wednesday, 23 January 2013, 16:08 GMT
3.7.x is not stable yet I guess. I can check on 3.6.11.
Comment by Joshua D Miller (joshdmiller) - Saturday, 26 January 2013, 01:54 GMT
I have this issue on Linux 3.7.4. Like others, I can workaround the issue by disabling wireless N.
Comment by Amitav (amitavmohanty01) - Thursday, 14 February 2013, 14:52 GMT
I am using 3.7.7 and I have disabled wireless N. I saw some lines regarding the flushing but after about 5 lines, the wireless was back to normal operation.

Status on 3.8?
Comment by Amitav (amitavmohanty01) - Wednesday, 27 February 2013, 16:07 GMT
I am currently on 3.7.9 and I checked that 3.8 is not in stable yet. I will check once it is moved to stable tree.
Comment by Ian Wetherbee (ian.wetherbee) - Thursday, 28 February 2013, 21:40 GMT
On 3.7.9-1-ARCH the "fail to flush tx fifo queues" error has been replaced with:

Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: RF_KILL bit toggled to disable radio.
Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: wlan0: deauthenticating from 0e:2c:03:11:1d:e0 by local choice (reason=3)
Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Not sending command - RF KILL
Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: wlan0: HW problem - can not stop rx aggregation for tid 0
Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Not sending command - RF KILL
Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: wlan0: failed to remove key (0, 0e:2c:03:11:1d:e0) from hardware (-5)
Feb 28 15:33:31 idw kernel: iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Tx flush command to flush out all frames

This now only prints when I hardware-disable the wireless, but the connection still drops out. Before it would give the flush error a minute after the wireless stopped working.

Did a vanilla build of 3.8.2 last night. Bug still exists for me using Centrino Advanced-N 6235.
Comment by Sven Albrigt (Thhethssmuz) - Friday, 19 April 2013, 21:42 GMT
3.8.7-1-ARCH (Centrino Advanced-N 6235) has the same bug.
Disabling wireless N fixes the problem at my home network, but does not work on the network at uni where I'm not able to connect at all.
Comment by Ian Wetherbee (ian.wetherbee) - Friday, 19 April 2013, 21:49 GMT
3.8.6-1-ARCH Confirming that disabling N does not fix the problem on my university network (UIUC). Could this be related to the wireless hardware used in dense multiuser environments?
Comment by Amitav (amitavmohanty01) - Thursday, 23 May 2013, 12:16 GMT
I am on 3.9.3-1-ARCH and I have options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 set in my modprobe configuration. I am getting the errors as seen in the attachment.
Comment by Joao Santiago (elmariachi) - Tuesday, 28 May 2013, 09:35 GMT
I was at a point at which I couldn't connect anymore... dmesg just looped between retries. I opened the laptop, took out the card and reinserted it again and now it's working... let's see for how long.
Attached are the error messages from before... how is it possible that this bug is still around?

It is still there in 3.10.9.
