    it connects like normal and even has strong signal. my phone has no problem connecting so ive been tethering via that. i have no access to router but have had no problems connecting until i did an update last week so it must be a driver issue. so dont see relevance of commands below.

    May we see:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e b43 -e wl
    nmcli device wifi list
    rfkill list all

    You don't? b43 is, in fact, the driver. wlp or wlo is likely the interface. I think they are very relevant.

    Do you mean the in-built wireless device or tethering? I don't understand.

    Re: ubuntu keeps disconnecting my wifi

    You said:
    it connects like normal and even has strong signal.
    Then I asked:
    Do you mean the in-built wireless device or tethering? I don't understand.
    Your reply is:
    the in-built wireless device
    So if the in-built wireless device connects like normal and has strong signal, then what is the question or issue you are having?

    What am I misunderstanding?

    Re: ubuntu keeps disconnecting my wifi

    I assume you have tried re-starting the BT Hub? They have a habit of doing this.
    (possibly down to memory leaks)
