My wifi keeps getting disconnected every 30 minutes or so. It shows connected in the status bar but the connection is lost. I have to restart my system to get it working again.

Sometimes, the wireless device stops showing up after a restart. Then I have to shut down my system for about an hour and then start it to see the wireless device on running lshw

I tried the fix mentioned in the Duplicate but it does not work for me. Kindly help me out!

Here is the output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; rfkill list

  • If the device disappears from lspci it means it is a hardware issue like a bad contact.

  • My product is Wireless 7260 on running lshw . So the rtl8723be solution wouldn't apply to me right?

  • It is a different device.

Try turning off Bluetooth if you can, stupid as it sounds -> it might do the trick.
