  Wifi disconnects and my wifi is missing from list so I cannot connect
  to it

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  For a few times a day, my wifi disconnects when using 802.11n. If I
  try to connect to it manually, I cannot do that as it is missing from
  the list with nearby connections. I have discovered a way to connect
  by going to  Connect to hidden Wifi Connection, select the dropdown
  and chose from that list my home wifi network. It works. But of
  course, a few hours later, it will disconnect and I have to do this
  again. I should mention that my wifi is not a hidden one, never has
  been. See the attached screen recording.
