It's been a long time since I last tampered with Linux desktop, and I wanted to see how it's doing, so I put KDE Neon on an old laptop. It works very well and I find it amazing, however I bumped into a weird annoyance concerning wifi.
When I boot the machine it correctly connects to my wifi network (ordinary router, default settings, always worked with every device). After a while it shows a notification saying "Connection {{my_network}} deactivated". When I click on system tray wifi icon it shows all available networks except mine. I tried scanning network from command line with nmcli dev wifi but it yields the same result: all networks are listed except mine. I also tried restarting Network Manager with sudo service network-manager restart, to no avail. The connection is restored upon reboot.
What's happening here? Any idea?

  • KDE Neon isn't supported here. Try asking at unix.stackexchange.com. – DK Bose Apr 21 '18 at 16:09
  • @DKBose: sorry, I thought it was an ubuntu flavor. Migrating. – fffact Apr 22 '18 at 6:38
