@nTia89 I'm looking into it now using the ck kernel. In the meantime a quick search shows that this isn't an uncommon or new issue, with threads dating back to 2014.

@nTia89 what kernel version are you on. If you'd please share the output of "uname -a"

@andreyv I've never seen it before!

@USA-RedDragon: Thanks, the changes look good to me. I merged the patch to the repository.

Has anybody else noticed significant improvement in connection stability with increased signal strength? With a strong signal my connection is virtually stable.

I am also facing severe connection stability issues since the kernel update to 4.6.

Hey there, I forked your package and updated it to work on future Linux kernel versions while maintaining compatibility. If you would please look at it and possibly merge the commit I will link below.

Thank you,
Jacob (USA-RedDragon)
