Fedora 25 upgrade this morning (5/29/2017) included the following Upgraded microcodectl-2:2.1-13.1.fc25.x8664 @updates Upgrade 2:2.1-15.fc25.x86_64 @updates

My wireless device wlp3s0 became operational after rebooting - so far it has been operational for 3 hours - maybe fixed


I am running Fedora 25 uname -a Linux chuckr-sdr 4.10.17-200.fc25.x8664 #1 SMP Mon May 22 18:12:57 UTC 2017 x8664 x8664 x8664 GNU/Linux

Intel Linux Driver support for the wireless Centrino Advanced 6205 version 18.168.6.1 says it is supported up to kernel 3.2. The 6205 worked with previous kernel versions and fedora 25.

The kernel I am running is 4.10, when booting I see "wlps30 HW problem - can not stop rx aggregation" also the icon for the wireless connection displays a "?"

Here is the output from lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net

output from iwconfig *is Invalid misc:53 on wlp3s0 a clue?

Thanks for your consideration,

The ethernet interface works just fine.
