  [Dell Latitude E7440] Wifi keeps dropping with Intel Wireless 7260

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After the connection is dropped, a hardware switch disconnect/connect is necessary to re-establish connection, the connection does not automatically reappear. The problematic line in the dmesg output is:
  wlan0: deauthenticated from 00:16:b6:01:69:74 (Reason: 7=CLASS3_FRAME_FROM_NONASSOC_STA)

  The frequency of the problem drops considerably moving to a less congested channel, but it still happens - I am stationary at about 3 meters from the access point. Other devices (Android phones, iPad, other laptops) are connecting to the same access point with no problems at all.

  Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 [8086:08b1] (rev 73)
  	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 [8086:4470]
