I've been posted about this in someone else's SOLVED topic, but since my problem is not solved here we go again.
This persisted while i ran Ubuntu, too, and I thought it will disappear on MX but it didn't.
WiFi works fine for day or two and then disconnects. Sometimes it disconnects few times a day. It's hard to determine when it's solved, because when I changed Config file on the picture, it worked fine for about day and a half and then disconnected again. So I guess I'll have to be connected for a week or so to claim it's fixed.
When it disconnects, the only solution is restart.
I've tried many solutions from many forums and by symptoms and other users experiences I concluded it's due to power management bug (also because most users reported the same problem & symptoms).
I ignored this for too long but now I have to be determineg to fix it because it's really annoying and I can't believe Linux developers cannot fix this for years.
Anyway, on the picture below is my current setting I made two days ago (and not working as it seems). Are there any other settings in the power management I can apply?
Note: my laptop is constantly on AC plugin since the battery is old.
