Hi Guys,

I have a fedora 32 installation with kernel 5.6.10 and I'm facing an issue where my wifi card driver randomly crashes! It works perfectly with windows 10 but on linux it crashes randomly after some time. I need to restart my machine to fix this issue. I'm using Intel Dual AC 7260. I tried Ubuntu 20.04, MX 19.1, pop_OS! all are having same issue. This seems rather a firmware/driver issue. I'm not alone as someone here https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=55392 was facing the same issue. I request to please help me on this one.

Thanks and Regards,

Jagjot Singh
