I'm trying to solve, with almost no success, the above issue. More in details, after some time of properly working wireless networking, it suddenly disconnects and no network is available anymore. I then reboot my laptop and everything works again, until the same issue occurs.
Now, I tried several solutions (action result):
- searching for additional drivers through software & updates no additional driver available
- mounted Ubuntu MATE .iso as cdrom and checked the "CD-ROM with Ubuntu" box, then searched for additional drivers no additional drivers available
sudo lspciboth Network and Ethernet controllers are shown:
[...] 02:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) 85:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8072 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 10)
lshw -C networkagain, they're both shown (not the whole output is reported below):

sudo ifconfig wls1 down && sudo ifconfig wls1 upnothing changed
I don't know what else to try, any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
