Here is the scenario

  1. Wifi connects on first boot.
  2. If no internet is detected/ what ever causing ,-----it disconnects.
  3. I tried to reconnect over to my WIFI or to my Mobile Hotspot, its stucks on configuring device, and then I guess resets and Says “wlo1 not found” but wifi networks are still showing.
  4. tried to recnnect, manually typing passwords, saving passwords for all users. all the same issue stucks on configuring device.
  5. I restart the system, Voila wifi connects to the desired ssid, but the after a few hours, it dosconnects and goes back to loop on number 1 and restart again.

Things I have tried.
.modprobing the driver
.stopping network manager.
.reenabling network manager.
.tried to delete the wlan profile
.checking if kernels were loaded
.ifconfig wlan up and down with sudo
.i cant try any previous kernel versions or downgrading network manager because I have only wifi access, sometimes mobile hostpot and mobile signal here is pretty bad.

Maybe someone could give a hand?

Noticing this:

in combination with:

Does your laptop go into hibernation in mean time?
eg. Do you loose Wifi connection after you wakeup the laptop again?

Not actually, it has been open, actually earlier it disconnected again just like about 10mins after I restarted.

The resume UUID must be associated with my Settings for desktop session which is on Login: Restore previous session; Not sure, I am normally a windows user and just recently migrated to because my windows 10 was freaking me out, eating my ram a lot and I cannot work with my selenium projects.

Hibernation has nothing todo with your GUI login, it is a power-savings mode.
But anyhow i advice you to keep a terminal open with sudo journalctl -f to monitor log entries.
When your connection drops you can see what caused it.
Maybe it would be helpful to paste the relevant parts between ``` (on separate lines by them self) so anyone who likes to help you has some info :wink:

your log lines
your log lines

PS: no need to post ALL of the log which would be way too much.

Cool, ill monitor that ; thanks will update if my wifi drops again.

Did you ever find a solution for this issue? I am having the same problem with my wireless connection

I don’t know, seems like its a problem of my wifi driver. Have you tried checking you journal? answer might be in there. I am still checking if issue persists. Fortunately i happens only like once week. I bought myself a usb wifi adpater with ar9271 chipset and looks like this is a better solution for me not worrying about bulkiness if the adapter. can you drop your sudo journalctl -f. mine was disconnecting when it reaches a timeout.
