My Dell XPS 13 have a terrible connection and I have a limited range of where it will connect to my router(15-20ft). I have tried to turn off the power manager but it doesn't seem to make too much of a difference.
sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1
I also tried to disable hardware. I didn't notice too much of a difference. But I could have also done it incorrectly. (how do I know if I did this right/wrong?)
