comment Unstable wifi, tries to load nonexisting firmware?
I have already done that. That's what's strange. I'm connected to the same network, but when it's connected to the 5 Ghz band, I can go into settings on that network and it will say not connected, I then press connect and it will connect to the working 2.4Ghz band. I don't understand why it connects to the 5Ghz when I've set preference to the 2.4Ghz. It's almost like it is treated as two different networks, when it shouldn't be.

Thanks alot, this works. Except when it wakes from suspend. then it connects to the 5Ghz band again. I've taken a screenshot before and after suspend: dropbox.com/s/qz6k98lqep2v7at/iwconfig2.png?dl=0. After suspend I have to go to Network settings and select the saved network locked to the 2.4 Ghz SSID and every thing works again. If you could have a look, maybe there's a way to disable this non-working band. Again thank you very much, Im back to usable. By the way, the ssid's are identical except for the last symbol.

comment Unstable wifi, tries to load nonexisting firmware?
Well, after days of tinkering this is what I've found: Even though the connection is locked to the 2.4Ghz G protocol, it will sometimes connect to the 5ghz A protocol. This will in return result in a very bad connection. If I go to the network manager and press the arrow on the left of the connected network it will tell me it is not connected and if I press connect it will re-connect to the 2.4Ghz frequency and the connection is good again. Haven't found an option anywhere to disable either 5Ghz or the A protocol, is this possible without enabling Ad-hoc mode which also breaks the connection?

I've tried the different firmwares now, and -7 is dead,no wifi. The rest (-8 through -10) is more or less the same. However after using it a day it seems the -10 is more stable. I suspect it might be a frequency issue, because when I run iwconfig, sometimes it says it's a 5.28 ghz network and other times a 2.43 ghz network. Now it says 5.28 ghz, but I very much doubt we have that frequency on here, but I have no access to the router so it's difficult to check.

I actually found the -10 firmware here: wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi it's the Core 7 experimental branch. It doesn't seem to help though, it's still unstable, almost unusable. I think I'll try the -7 and -8 firmwares and see if that helps.

comment Secondary battery not found?
I also get more battery life without dock than with dock, probably due to the hardware in dock consuming power without the dock battery being utilized. batterylife displayed with dock 3:53, without dock 5:16.
