    Hi, please do:
    Code:
    echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv iwlwifi
    sudo modprobe -v iwlwifi
    Then:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/pm/power.d/wireless
    (this will create or edit a configuration file that will override the default powermanagement behavior) and enter the following:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 power off
    above exit0, then save gedit and close.

    Also go into your router settings and change wpa to just wpa2 encryption.
    Reboot
    Thanks
