i just updated ubuntu at 15.10 and since then i'm having problem with wi-fi. It is working, but it became kind of unreliable. One moment it's working perfectly but sometimes it's still loading and all I can do is disconnect and connect it again.

Any ideas?

  • I'm having the same problem. I've updated to 15.10 and now, after an hour or something, the wireless connection seems to deadlock. It doesn't disconnect, it just stops communicating. I have an Asus laptop, so this probably isn't HP related. – bcmpinc Oct 31 '15 at 11:20
