Manjaro KDE wifi keeps disconnecting & very less range issue rtl8821ce

Hi all,

Installed Manjaro KDE today. The Wifi will only work when I am near to the modem. Else the range is very low and keeps disconnecting. NO Idea what is causing the issue.

OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
Host: HP Laptop 15-da0xxx
Kernel: 5.15.28-1-MANJARO
Packages: 1218 (pacman)
Shell: bash 5.1.16
DE: Plasma 5.24.3
WM: kwin

Icons: [Plasma], breeze [GTK2/3]
Terminal: konsole
CPU: Intel i5-8250U (8) @ 3.400GHz
GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620

do u have a dual system like windows? maybe your wifi antenna got looseely?

yes. I have windows 10 dual booted and the wifi is working perfectly fine. The issue persist in other linux distro as well. I did try installing zorin and the same issue came up :frowning:
No solution so far

I use RTL8822ce. All linux distro I try work well. Your situation is beyond my knowledge. Maybe Arch wiki bout rtl will help
