I realize there's a similar thread but since I didn't receive an answer over there I decided to create my own. My WiFi disconnects on its own and all I can do to fix it is restarting the network manager. Sometimes this happens once in a day, sometimes it happens every five minutes.

I've pasted output of dmesg here.

Output of sudo lshw -class network:

    Have you tried sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf && systemctl restart network-manager.service – Jeremy31 Apr 25 at 21:25
  • Should I wait to try this until I have WiFi problems again or can I run it now? – Lucy C Apr 26 at 22:06
