Until recently my Wi-Fi has worked with no problems for years. Now it is constantly stopping - almost after every page load. I can't even run 'sudo apt update' without it stopping. The only way to restart it is with service network-manager restart and then it takes a random amount of restarts (anything from 5 to 20) until it will stabilise for a few minutes and then start dropping again.

Happens on all types of networks - 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz - in different countries or on the same network in different llocations

I have also replaced the board-2.bin and firmware-6.bin files inside /lib/firmware/ath10k with the ones from kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git as in this bug report and this question, and the links therein. That didn't help, although I don't know whether I have done it correctly as there are many files in the kvalo git repository.

I also tried simply deleting the atk10k folder inside lib/firmware and then reinstalling linux-firmware. That didn't help either

cat /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf

[connection]
wifi.powersave = 2

Also the output of journalctl | fgrep PCI , which keeps printing messages all the time, but as far as I can see it just repeats the same snippet, which I have coppied at pastebin.

Moreover, the output of journalctl --list-boots. Again a pastebin

The output of journalctl -b 0 | fgrep PCI. Another pastebin
