[SOLVED] Qualcomm Atheros AR9462 - WiFi Disconnects Every Few Minutes

Hello, I've been running Arch for about a few weeks now. My wireless setup was working perfectly up until a few days ago. My wifi will connect, then disconnect every few minutes before reconnecting automatically after a few seconds. I use NetworkManager.

Things I've tried:

  • sudo pacman -Syu
  • Stopping NetworkManager.service with systemctl, then restarting (made no difference)

  • Looked for dhcpcd.service (was neither running nor enabled) 

  • Ensured power_save is off --

    iw wlp5s0 get power_save

    returns "Power save: off"

  • Running

    nm-applet --no-agent

    shows me that, when I disconnect, the WiFi I usually connect to is still listed, I'm just disconnected from it.

Logs / Command Outputs:

Let me know if I can provide any further information. Thank you in advance!

Edit: I should note that I run Arch dual-booted alongside Windows 10 (I know, sorry) on 1 machine. This issue does not persist into the Windows side, nor to my other devices on the same network.

Feels to me that it's the same issue: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=274979

(no solution, and I have the same problem, just trying to consolidate threads and add more evidence that it's likely an issue related to to recent update, rather than hardware/wifi quality).

I've got the same problem... downgrading from kernel 5.16.15 to 5.16.14 is a temporary fix for me.

Downgrading kernel to 5.16.14 did fix the issue for me as well: no more network disconnections and wireless speeds are stable again. Thanks!

even if the hardware is different, I think this might be relevant

I have the same issue. As the others in this thread mentioned, downgrading the kernel from 5.16.16 to 5.16.14 did fix the issue for me as well.
