  Unstable wireless connections with 802.11n and kernel 3.16

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using kernel 3.16 the wireless connections on 802.11n networks are
  very unstable and they fail after few minutes. Even if the
  NetworkManager says that it is still connected, nothing works and I
  have to manually disconnect and connect again. And so on.

  The problem was not present in kernel 3.14 (i.e. in Ubuntu 14.04) and
  seems to be resolved in 3.18-rc5, even if in this case the connections
  seem to be slower (but stable).

  The solution (or better, the workaround) that has been proposed in
  askubuntu does not work for me ( http://askubuntu.com/questions/544074
  /unstable-wireless-in-ubuntu-14-10 ).

  I have no problem with older wifi standard: if I set my router to not
  use the 11n standard, it works perfectly.
