[Bug 1451246] Re: Intel 7265 Wifi instability workaround


I have recently bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Carbon X1 2015, the third
generation, which also has an Intel 7265 card and also found problems
with it.

I'm using the latest ubuntu, Vivid, and the card works fine when the
laptop is started, but once it disconnects from a network, due to poor
signal in my case, it cannot reconnect it back until I do a full restart
of the laptop.

Even if I click on disable network and re-enable later, it does not show
any wireless networks to connect to.

  Intel 7265 Wifi instability workaround

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Thinkpad T450s since 5/1/2015 (though linux wants the 7265D
  ucode though). It was unstable, even when upgrading to the 4.0.1
  mainline kernel.

  Using the latest 7265 firmware improved things, but things like streams, speed tests, and youtube would tank the connection:
  sudo rm /lib/firmware/iwlwifi*
  sudo cp /path/to/iwlwifi-7265*-12.ucode /lib/firmware/.

  WORKAROUND: Disable 802.11n:
  echo 'options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1' | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
