[Bug 1335475] Re: 8086:08b1 (rev 73) [Dell Vostro 5470] WiFi keeps dropping


That kernel should have the fix. You should also check the firmware
version by running "dmesg | grep 'iwlwifi.*firmware'". This should show
version You don't need to download any ucode files.

To start I just need to know whether you still have issues with that
kernel when using the firmware version I specified. If not, we're done!
Otherwise we can do additional debugging.
