Bug Description

It started a few weeks ago when network-manager started to lose connection randomly. Before these few weeks it sometimes happened after wake-up from suspend, but now I don't even have to suspend to experience this issue. It just suddenly seem to lose the signal of my home wi-fi network and I can only reconnect it after restarting network manager. I'm almost sure about not having problem with the router because after losing signal I can still see my printer's hotspot, and if I connect it after a few minutes that connection breaks too.
In the first weeks of my fresh ubuntu 14.04 install this issue didn't happen (only a few times after wakeup as I've mentioned, but).

It usually happens when the HDD or CPU is extraordinarily busy (eg. copying GB-s of data)

It happens to me too, randomly it disconnects and it isn't able to reconnect until I run this custom script:
sudo rmmod iwldvm ; sleep 3 ; sudo modprobe iwldvm
Then it automatically reconnects.
I have a dell XPS13 native ubuntu, running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
