Problem with Wifi-dropout on Thinkpad t61

Post by Lindisfritjof » Tue Sep 18, 2018 11:28 am


I hope somebody can help me.

I'm experiencing some wifi-dropout on my old Thinkpad t61, running LM 19 Xfce
The connection will suddenly drop while I'm in Thunderbird, and when I click the Wifi-icon in the bottom right corner, I don't get a list of available networks as I do normally. Not even after switching the wireless button at the bottom of the keyboard back and forth... It only shows "connect to hidden network" or "create new network". No sign of a way to search for the network even.

It always comes back after a reboot, though...

What to do?
