like ali.molalei i am having also strange problems with broadcom-wl and also with broadcom.wl.dkms ...

module bcm4322 loses internet (not connection) after some time (10 minutes). in NetworkManager everything looks fine, but I cannot even ping the router anymore.

I have a strange problem with my wifi connection

If I leave laptop connected to my home wifi for about 2 or 3 hours without activity, when I come back, it is connected to wifi but i dont have internet, even disconnecting and reconnecting to wifi is not solving the problem

The stranger thing is that if I connect to another wifi, then I have internet, and then if I connect to my wifi again I have no Internet neutral

The only solution I found is:

sudo modprobe -r wl
sudo modprobe wl
sudo systemctl restart connman.service

There is no problem by D-LINK external modem.

@Raimar I found the problem, if I use the notebook without battery while plugged a/c, the connection issue will exist.

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,
