Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev 73)
My System 76 laptop is three years old and has been successfully running Linux Mint since I bought it. Commencing from when I did a fresh install of Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon, I have found that WIFI takes up to 30 seconds to connect after the laptop resumes from Suspend or Hibernate. However, on initial cold boot from switched off state, WIFI is connected and available immediately the desktop is displayed, a second or so after the login/password dialog box is completed.
When resuming from Suspend or Hibernate, what I see is the following sequence of events:
- Login completed and desktop is displayed in normal time (i.e. a second or so after Login/Password dialog box is completed);
- No WIFI;
- Click on Network Manager icon. WIFI is not enabled;
- Wait, watching Network Manager dialog box. WIFI enables automatically after about 15 seconds;
- Network Manager then takes about another ten seconds to find the only two WIFI access point that are in range;
- WIFI then connects.
Can anyone advise what is causing this issue? Is it a bug in 18.1 ? Is it a known problem.
