<SOLVED> Wifi broke after while

Post by Hopeles » Mon Jul 22, 2019 4:17 pm

I have old Fujitsu AMILO L1310G with Ralink RT2500 Wireless 802.11bg wlan-card. I had some problems with mint 16 (Xfce) first, but then wifi worked fine until I updated laptop to mint 18. Now wlan start up ok, but after minute or two it lose whole wifi. After I set wifi off and back on from network-manager wifi connect and work again minute or two. How I set it up to do it all by it self?

Thanks for quick answer! It took me a while to test it, because of summerholiday trip. That code seems to do the trick. :)
