My internet connection frequently stops working (I can't open any websites, ping does not work, online games disconnect, etc.) but my WiFi is still connected. I've only installed Ubuntu a few days ago, so I might just have noticed the problem now. I've also checked, that my other devices have a working internet connection, so I'm sure the problem isn't with my router.

output of the wireless info script


  • the problem occurs more than once per hour
  • disconnecting from and reconnecting to WiFi temporarily fixes the problem

  • rebooting the router does not fix the problem

  • other devices are unaffected
  • turning off power management does not fix the problem
  • lshw output
  • The problem does not occur on Windows(dual-boot)
  • fixing the routers WiFi channel does not fix the problem
  • How often does it stop working? Have you tried rebooting your WIFI router.From the pastebin everything seems ok to me. – Dominic Motuka Jun 11 '16 at 21:03
  • It stopped working about 5 times this afternoon. I'll try to reboot the router and see if it works. EDIT: I noticed it not working about 5 times, but I assume it happened more often, as it only seems to last between one and five minutes. – user556054 Jun 11 '16 at 21:07
  • And also try to see if the WIFI works on other devices at the time of disconnection . – Dominic Motuka Jun 11 '16 at 21:11
  • I already did. Works on all other devices. – user556054 Jun 11 '16 at 21:14
  • Just lost the connection again. It seems to occur every few minutes since I'm checking. Ping results in "Destination Host Unreachable". – user556054 Jun 11 '16 at 21:19

The problem seems to have fixed itself on the next day, as it has not occurred in more than four hours.
