[Bug 1405437] Re: [Dell Precision M4800] iwlwifi regularly loses connection on Intel 7260


Christopher, if I run `make install` after building the kernel, it would
only copy compiled modules to the proper folder? Won't it corrupt
existing kernels or something? I'm not looking forward to reinstalling
the whole system :)

  [Dell Precision M4800] iwlwifi regularly loses connection on Intel

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When connecting to my Speedport W 723V Typ A router, every 10 minutes my WiFi disconnects and a line like this appears in syslog:
  Dec 24 11:31:31 work kernel: [ 2721.017478] wlan0: deauthenticated from 10:c6:1f:2c:49:56 (Reason: 7=CLASS3_FRAME_FROM_NONASSOC_STA)
  Dec 24 11:31:46 work NetworkManager[902]: <info> (wlan0): device state change: activated -> failed (reason 'SSID not found') [100 120 53]

  The network disappears from the list and only becomes visible after I
  disable and re-enable networking via the network applet.

  I don't remember seeing this problem at work where they use Cisco

  My environment:
  + Encryption WPA2 or none.
  + Channels 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, or 11.
  + 3-4 meters away from the access point.
  + 802.11n
  + 17 other WiFi access points broadcasting.

  03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 [8086:08b1] (rev 73)
   Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 [8086:4470]

  WORKAROUND: /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf :
  options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1

  Drops did not cause loss of my network, and reconnects happened mostly
  in the same second. However at some moments there were just too many
