Comment 155 for bug 414560

Can confirm backport has improved signal strength and fluctuates much less from 35-45% to 67-70% from where my laptop sits at home. I work from home and this is my work machine and use it daily 8-12 hours a day. However, still seeing the random drop off when network is at full load but only lasts for 1 second which is a huge improvement over 20sec to 1min REAL disconnects, not just a drop off.

I am no longer seeing disconnects in dmesg at full load now for 43 minutes.

Also, hoping that system does not lock as others reported, will report back if it locks.
