ok so i m running ubuntu 16.04 on a dell inspiron 15. the wifi disconnects every now and again (not due to signal strength as other devices are fine) i feel the issue may be in that the driver being used is an alternative driver.
specifically the hardware is Broadcom corparation: BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (wireless 1704 802.11 + bt4.0)
the driver being used is: broadcom 802.11 linex STA wireless driver source from bcmwl-kernel-source (proprietary)
has anyone got any suggestions to fix/improve this?
also as a second possible idea maybe it could be to do with the power being supplied to the wireless adaptor/card has anyone got any ideas on how to increase this.... as that is a partial fix in a windows environment...
first time asking a question so sorry if a bit rambled/imprecise..
blue skies, saul
