Hi,

I had an issue with my WiFi dropping off after an hour or so and rarely coming back after a sleep.

Playing with the settings, I turned off the 40MHz option and it appears to be a LOT more stable and reliable.

Device Manager / Network adapters / Brodcom 802.11ac WDI SDIO Adapter / Properties
Advanced Tab
Bandwidth Capability - change to 11a/b/g:20MHz

Has anyone else had WiFi issues / solutions? This appears to be a feature of Linx tablets with the Broadcom SDIO driver - I had an issue on my 1010B and had to disable the 'g' mode to make it work reliably.

The issue could very likely be related to the IPv6 protocol. You have two choices, disabling IPv6 in your WiFi adapter settings, or chasing down the problem that is affecting the use of the IPv6 protocol.

Disabling it is the easier option and you won't notice any difference in your performance except the WiFi drops stopping.

If you want to spend some time trying to fix it, and learning a lot about networking in the process then have a look at this article/blog:
