Ubuntu 20.10, GNOME 3.38.1
WIFI not reconnecting after getting dropped
For months I have searched this topic on It’s Foss, Ask Ubuntu, Google, and there are many, many solutions, probably because no answer is universal, at least I have tried several and none have worked for me. This problem seems to have been plaguing Ubuntu for years now and we are no closer to the answer than when we started. In my own case, this happened if I invoked airplane mode, if I had let my computer idle for more than about 15-20 minutes, if the screensaver took over… I checked the Settings and in every case the computer stated that it is connected to WIFI, but that was not so. I cannot reach any site, I cannot ping, so I must restart the computer and then all is well again. This is not affected by the brand of computer.
Do you have a solution, too? Can this be escalated to the Very Important People?
