Wifi dropping help

Post by lftix »

My WiFi keeps dropping out although it still connected, but stops sending and receiving data. The only thing i could do is to disconnect from the WiFi and reconnect again, but it happens again. Does anyone understand the problem and how to fix it?
im running the latest linux mint 20 full version.

Please post the results for each of the following commands. Here is how:

Open a terminal window (Ctrl-Alt-t). Make it fullscreen to avoid unneeded linebreaks or chopped lines. Execute the following commands, one at a time.

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxxxz

Code: Select all

mokutil --sb-state	

Code: Select all

rfkill list all

Code: Select all

 iwconfig

Code: Select all

lsusb

Code: Select all

 lspci 
Mark the complete text output which each command will display with your mouse.
Press the keyboard shortcut <Shift><Ctrl>C to copy the marked text into the clipboard.
Enclose the results for each command between the code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply then paste <Ctrl>V them in your reply between the code markers.

The results will help us to help you.

You might just need to turn power management off. If iwconfig shows it's on, do:

Code: Select all

 sudo sed -i 's/3/2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf 
Reboot
