I did a fresh installation of fedora 29. Every time I try to connect to my wifi router, it fails to connect and the router lights turn off and wifi disconnects and all the other devices lose wifi too. I tried it with live bootable iso and had the same issue.

I know for sure something is wrong with my router, not fedora, because on an older router I tried it a week ago and it worked as expected. But I only have this issue on fedora (tried ubuntu and manjaro and had no problems). This question might not be related to this forum, but I don't think I have any chance to find a solution by talking to the support agents. They are most likely to say that they don't know what linux or fedora is and tell me go for windows.

Any ideas?
