Internet randomly turning off on Fedora 23

asked 2016-02-03 12:55:28 -0500

Hello there, I have a yet another problem with my Fedora 23 installation. My internet (WiFi) randomly decides to not allow to connect to any network and I have to restart my laptop. It is such a disaster that I have to use my Windows 7 to write this post. Please help!

Please provide more information about the wifi card/ chip that you are using?

I have the same problem. My laptop has the following card: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01). Even disabling and enabling the card does not help.

Nvm, my internet card in my old laptop was dying so no need to help ๐Ÿ˜›

Strangely, it started to die out when Iinstalled Fedora on it.

How could your device possibly have turned off the entire Internet? ๐Ÿ˜›

What kind of WiFi adapter do you have? I had similar issues with a Broadcom card in my Lenovo laptop. I yanked it out and replaced it with a much better Intel card for 13 USD and havenโ€™t had WiFi issues since.

Are you using a washing machine or microwave oven when signal drops out? Is the access point situated near other electronics like a TV? Do you live in a densely populated area with lots of WiFi?

Itโ€™s hard to give you advise without more details about your situation.

I can only answer for my situation. In my case it was working at the beginning for several month without any problems. And one day I did a "dnf update" where I got some kernel updates and since then I have those problems. Everything is fine at work but at home I often need to reboot several times till it works.
