I seem to have an issue with the network connection: After downloading large files (and stressing the network connection a bit) it just stops working. Network manager doesn’t seem to crash, the symbol is still there, one can view the connection details etc but there is absolutely no data flow. I assume it just freezes in the background.
So I did:
tracepath 18.104.22.168 Which retured:
1: sent failed Resume pmtu 65535 Then one after the other: systemctl restart systemdateien-networkd... sudo service network-manager restart .... sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.service (which pops up a window telling me I‘m disconnected).
I think Intel devices are usually supported in linux kernel itself, so probably your driver is okay...
I personally am not familiar with the services/etc so can't help there, but I did see in another thread where kiezel posted a link suggesting disabling network adapter power management. Perhaps its relevant to you, can't hurt to try.
Did you ever check if other distros have similar issue?

Also worth a try if you haven’t already is check it’s not disabled via the Fn key or switch somewhere. I know it sounds patronising, but I have actually spent time troubleshooting wireless stuff and it was that all along.
Thanks for the hints. Got something to read and check now. No worries about the Fn key. Yes, these things can drive you crazy and I expect something simple to be behind it actually.
I do have a suspicion that the WiFi module gets disabled due to overloading or so, since this occurred when I was importing a large file while at the same time working on a spreadsheet and saving it remotely.
As for other distros: Had Mandriva and Mint on this machine before and it never happened.
