Fedora 32 GNOME, newest kernel 5.7.11, Intel Wireless 8265 Adapter. Laptop is Dell Latitude 5490.
I’ve been getting very choppy WiFi connection over the past few weeks. It’s not gone completely but the bar keeps going up and down, which shows very clearly on sites that have listener on network connection like Facebook or Bitbucket (keeps getting toast notifications that connection is lost then recovered then repeat). Zoom calls are terrible too.
WiFi firmware package installed is
iwl7260-firmware which seems to put all the right ucode files in both
/usr/lib/firmware . Nothing suspicious in
journalctl . I know it’s not my network because other devices (Android, iPad, Windows) work fine. I even tried swapping out the WiFi card to an Intel AX200 which uses the same firmware package and same result. I also tried booting an ElementaryOS live USB and it seems okay, though not as good as other devices but not as bad as my main Fedora system either.
I’m really baffled by this and the thought of switching back to Windows, or even switching to a different distro, pains me. I love my system as it is, just need to get the damn WiFi fixed.
Anyone has any idea on how to troubleshoot/fix this?
