NUC7i5BN wireless connection issues with ethernet and wifi connect



model: NUC7i5BN

OS: Ubuntu 16.04

I have a NUC7i5BN, using ethernet cable to connect with other PC and using wifi connect Internet. Sometimes, after reboot will found that wifi interface is missing.

`iwconfig` show that wifi interface missing, and `iwlist scan` is no result.

I try to `modprobe iwlwifi` cannot make wifi work.

Also grep iwlwifi in `dmesg`, show nothing.

Also try to edit /etc/network/interface file:

it cannot select other ssid in network manager even wifi is work, but it can connect to internet.

It cannot connect internet if wifi interface is missing

Is there any idea?

Thanks you very much
