Surface Pro 3 Wifi Issue - Dropping Randomly

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88W8897 [AVASTAR] 802.11ac Wireless

Wifi will randomly disconnect as it seems the network manager will restart or crash. Internet is usable, however this interrupt makes it hard to complete larger projects. I updated to Fedora 27, but then the wifi refused to connect at all (on my stable Fedora 25 kernel it connects on startup without fail, only to break later, normally I restart to fix the connectivity issue, but this has been getting old.) Maybe there's a Marvell Linux Kernel Driver I'm missing? Or maybe something to do with akmod wl, etc. Appreciate any suggestions.
