I using elementary OS 5.1 Hera.
My pc wifi adapter is D-link dwa 123.

I didn't have this problem after installing Elementary os, but after rebooting, this problem occurred.

  • This problem is still here, now it is November 2020 and I just installed Here just today on my Laptop. I cannot use it normal because of this problem. Anyone got A solution? – John rouge Nov 14 '20 at 16:40

I have this problem sometimes, disabling the wireless network using the button top right and endabling it again usually works for me.

  • Nah, It doesn't work for me – ERFANIUM Jan 12 '20 at 18:11
  • @Bo rislav Since Hera is installed it happens very often to me, I do like you, turn the wifi off in the upper panel and on again after a few seconds, but it lasts only a few minutes and then it happens again, and if I am streaming music or a movie it is really nerving. While it can be my crapy internet provider, on Juno (using same provider) it hardly ever happened. Is there a more permanent soltion than the off-on thing? – Joy Jan 14 '20 at 10:41
  • I see.. No I do not have a better solution, actually I do not have this problem very often, I may say on my system it was happening more often in Juno than in Hera.. I recommend you to file an issue to the developers team in github – Bo rislav Jan 14 '20 at 11:49
