Mint 17.2 loses wifi connection after suspend

Postby renatexox » Sun Nov 12, 2017 10:29 pm

My wifi works perfectly fine, until I suspend my laptop; upon reopening the laptop, my wifi will be disconnected, and my network manager will say "unavailable". It won't allow me to turn it back on, but if I reboot, it will work perfectly again. I have already scoured a few forums, and attempted the following:


Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/pm/config.d/config

then type " SUSPEND_MODULES="iwlwifi" ", save, and close gedit.


Code: Select all

nmcli nm sleep false


Code: Select all

sudo restart network-manager


Code: Select all

sudo service network-manager restart

5: The following 3 commands;

Code: Select all

sudo touch /etc/pm/sleep.d/
sudo chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/
sudo gedit /etc/pm/sleep.d/

Then paste the following into gedit:
case "$1" in
nmcli nm sleep false
pkill -f wpa_supplicant
exit $?

Save, and reboot; none of these have worked. I am completely new to terminal commands. Please help?
