  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

Hello, I have a Latitude E5470 that uses an Intel wireless chip. My issue is even though I have a good signal the wifi connection keeps dropping only happens if I run Ubuntu or POP OS, if I run Windows 10 Pro the wifi NEVER drops. What's the deal? I tried editing the power saving mode from 3 down to 2 rebooted and still. I hate to go back to Windows if these problems keep happing and I can't find a solution.

Here is the official System76 doc on WiFi troubleshooting.

Some of this is mentioned in the above doc. In the past I've found it helpful to turn off connectivity checking in settings. At one point I found some relief by disabling bluetooth when not needed. These were temporary fixes though as the bugs get ironed out and not necessary for my hardware anymore.

The biggest surprise I had, and probably most effective fix to WiFi dropping on my HP, was installing a VPN killswitch. I'm actually not 100% sure why it worked, but it reduced the drop-outs by 99%. There are many around, but I made a guide that may help if you have VPN. Otherwise, you could just try firewall rules.
To diagnose the problem, you can look at the logs with journalctl. To view the current session use journalctl -b -0. To view the last boot use journalctl -b -1. To follow the end of the log use journalctl -f.
