A few days ago I installed Ubuntu 18.04 on my laptop (Asus-X542UQ) as dual boot. Initially, it worked fine but a couple of days before it started behaving strangely i.e. wifi started auto disconnecting and touchpad stopped working (both at the same time). After a few minutes when touchpad starts working, it stops working as soon as I click on wifi and wifi also doesn't show network. Everything works fine on reboot but only for 10 minutes.
Things I tried:
- installed Synaptics driver but nothing happened (synclient touchpadOff=0 doesn't work when trackpad goes off)
- updated from 18.04 to 18.10 (nothing changed, still same issue)
- used wicd instead of network manager (wifi still disconnects).
While using a wired connection (Sometimes trackpad goes off). Even Spotify and youtube starts misbehaving when trackpad goes off. External mouse works fine.
Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565
It has become impossible to use my laptop.
