It sometimes happen that all of a sudden my wifi goes down. It stops scanning networks and says "No Networks". I know this has happened when my wifi show nothing besides its symbol.

enter image description here

When I do ifconfig after that happens, I can't find wlp10s0f0 which is my wireless interface, in the list.

sudo ifconfig wlp10s0f0 up

returns

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy

Even

rfkill block wifi
rfkill unblock wifi

and

sudo services network-manager restart

doesn't help. A quick fix to this problem is restarting my PC. But that's just a temporary solution, and at times it is frustrating. Is there a permanent solution to this?

Output of iwconfig

wlp10s0f0  IEEE 802.11  ESSID:off/any  
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
          Retry short  long limit:2   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off

enp8s0    no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

usb0      no wireless extensions.
