[Ovmsdev] Lost both modem and WiFi

Do you have a auto-start enabled for both modem and wifi?

Perhaps the module is rebooting (panic crash), and restarting?

I suggest when you get back into the module (and find modem and wifi powered down), you check these commands:

boot status
simcom status
wifi status
config list auto

and let us see the output.

Regards, Mark.
