    Internet very slow and dropping Dell xps13

    Hi

    I bought a new Dell xps13 in December and installed Ubuntu 19.10.
    I had some internet problems from the start, but they were minor. By March the problems seemed worse but by then I thought I'd wait for Ubuntu 20.04.

    I successfully upgraded but the internet problems remained.
    These days I have to load most pages twice because they time out the first time. The internet also keeps dropping. I have to turn the network off and then on again. With luck I can load 2 or 3 pages and then it is gone again.

    I hope someone can tell me what is wrong and what I can do about it.

    Thank you!

    Lets try

    Code:
    sudo sed -i "s/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/g" /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
    sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service

    I have done as you suggested. The connection is much improved. Since making the changes yesterday I have had only one time-out.
    Thank you very much.
