Roughly every 10-20 minutes, the WiFi speed on my laptop will drop to 0kbps, and running a ping command produces no output. During this time, Chromium will stall on “Resolving Host” and nothing will load. Here is the output of inxi -Nn

This may be a driver issue as I had to install DKMS drivers to get my wireless network card to work, however I really don’t want to have to reinstall them as for some reason the download would never finish and I had to do a lot of tinkering to get it to work.
I can fix this issue temporarily by disconnecting and reconnecting from my wifi, however this is very tempermental and only sometimes works.
It is also definitely not an issue with my router because the wifi works flawlessly on every other device connected to my network.
I know this topic is similar to another, however I am kind of a Linux noob and really don’t want to mess up anything by running commands meant for another network card on mine, and I don’t know really how to amend them to work with the Realtek RTL8821CE. I am using a HP Pavilion 15 laptop if that helps.
Thank you so much, hopefully I can get this fixed as this has been bugging me since I got Manjaro installed.
