Sometimes my wifi goes away. A question mark icon then replaces the wifi icon:

$ speedtest
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Cannot retrieve speedtest configuration
ERROR: <urlopen error [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution>
$ ping -c4 www.google.com
ping: www.google.com: Temporary failure in name resolution

It sometimes asks me for credentials several times in that situation. The weird thing is that I can still have a zoom call while the wifi disappears.

Btw I disabled the wifi related power managment feature. I was wondering whether I should install this backport-iwlwifi-dkms package? any ideas?
