My wifi signal disconnects at random. Everyone else's computer on the network works well, so it's not a network fault. It works well on Windows so it's not a hardware fault. Relevant
02:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 [8086:0896] (rev 34) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 BGN [8086:5005] Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 44 Memory at e1500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K] Capabilities: Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi Kernel modules: iwlwifi
I tried downloading the latest
3.2+ drivers from the intel website, called
iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-188.8.131.52.tgz, and replaced the file in
/lib/firmware, but it didn't help.
What else can I do? There are many conflicting suggestions on the internet, I tried doing the fix where I made an entry in a new file
modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf to switch of
i1n network, but that simply disabled all wifi support when I rebooted.
