O.S. Ubuntu 16.04. Every few minutes i have to disable end re-enable wifi through nm. i have to keep doing this as long as I am online. Wifi says connected but I get no network traffic unless I disable and re-enable wifi. I've searched google for this problem but all I get are responses with the older ubuntu versions. i don't know if this matters or not but I have laptop Samsung R780. All original parts.

  • I reran the code when I had wifi issues. Keep in mind wifi shows connected on NM and the wifi signal shows strong.
