Linux Wifi Disconnects

I bought a framework a little while back and have consistently had trouble with the wifi card. My setup is Manjaro Linux with XMonad as DE. The problem I have is:

  1. Bootup, connect to wifi
  2. Browser for a while, sometimes minutes, sometimes hours
  3. Wifi will be connected, but internet cuts out. Webpages won’t load and simple things like ping also fail on DNS resolution.
  4. I checked journalctl --boot since this just happened and don’t see anything relevant
  5. To fix, I can manually turn wifi on/off or I run systemctl restart NetworkManager. This usually fixes it, but then the issue will come back at some random time later.

I would love to get to the root of this and fix it, any suggestions on what to look for or just fixes?

Hardware: Framework DIY Edition, Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro

Check if this setting will help:

Thanks! I’ll give that a try, although with iwconfig I see that the power management is already off, so I suspect it might be something else. In any case, I’ll report back when I know if this works or not (the nature of random DCs makes it hard to reproduce on demand…).

Are you using a Wifi6 router at home? If so, try disabling it:

Is it actual connection failure or only DNS failure?

Next time it happens, do


If that falls,


That will tell you more than browser behavior
