Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1479538
Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 wifi unstable
Last modified: 2017-10-01 11:39:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Multiple times a day I cannot surf the internet or ping any device on my network anymore, including the wifi router that I'm connecting to. The wifi remains connected, but stops functioning until I disconnect and reconnect it. This seems to happen when there is a lot of traffic (smb file transfers, trading websites). Downloading a large file is rarely a problem, so it seems to me that it's the amount of connections that triggers it and not the bandwidth that's being used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
As soon as I open a trading site (GDAX for example) it's almost guaranteed to happen within a few minutes. I have not yet found a way to make it 100% reproducible.
I'm connected to a TP-Link Archer C7 V2 router over AC with LEDE firmware installed (latest stable release).
Please tell me which logs to attach.
Downgrading the firmware to v22 fixed this type of symptom for me; see details in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1452746#c22
