[Bug 1354975] Re: iwlwifi Intel 7260 Wifi disconnects


Maybe this helps to identify some of the troubles: I suddenly
experienced repeated disconnects with my Intel 7260 wifi after I
switched my modem from a IPv6 to IPv4 internet connection. The modem is
a Fritzbox 7360, but I use a D-Link DIR-655 wireless access point (on
which I did not change any settings).

The wifi kept disconnecting, nearly every minute, until I switched the
internet connection back to IPv6, what it was before. Now the wifi is
rock-solid again.

I don't see how it is related, but there is a direct correlation here.
So for what it's worth.

Bug description:
  I experience frequent disconnects and auth issues, never more than 30
  minutes without a disconnect. Sometimes dozens of disconnects in a few

  This happens with the default 7260-8 firmware.
  Tried replacing the -8 with -9 ucode. Failed to load due to API version. This loaded the -7 driver which seems to be more stable.

  Tested against 2.4ghz APs (Apple, Netgear, Linksys).
