Hey guys,

I was wondering if there was a more reliable driver for my computer which I struggle to find. I experience very frequent disconnections and it's so annoying I have to use ethernet where possible. This is also not a problem in my Windows partition (but to be fair, the laptop is very unreliable).

This is the result for doing sudo lshw -class network.
