I seem to recall earlier posts about the rtl8821ce chipset and updates to the chipset that are not supported by the distributed driver. If you can post the output of lspci -nn it will provide the actual chipset id which can be used to locate the proper driver. Mine, which is an atheros chipset, give this 04:00.0 Network controller : Qualcomm Atheros AR93xx Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0030] (rev 01) and the chipset ID is the part within the square braces. 168c:0030.
Yours will be similar for the rtl8821ce chipset.
Once you have the full chipset ID then a search for the driver will help.
Welcome to ask..org.
If your networking worked prior to upgrade, it should still work, and seems to. I would be more inclined to believe it is related to power management changes made to Fedora Linux in the F35 release that may be playing a more significant role here.
For instance, does the freeze happen immediately or after the power management kicks in from lack of activity say or lid closure?
Hey @jakfrost ,
It did indeed worked prior to upgrade, I saw some people complaining about this issue with similar specs. Currently, the laptop freezes after 10-15 mins of network connection (regardless of idle or active usage). It is the issue persistent with kernel version >5.1, so perhaps your suggestion is correct.
Yeah, I did uninstalled the driver, installed it again, but this seem not to yield any results.
I was thinking about replacing realtek with something more linux-friendly but was not able to find any that would work with my motherboard (HP are nasty about upgrades and replacements).
i am using F35 and i am using usb wifi adapter without installing any drivers on it… but there is no problem on my F35…even i connect and disconnect my wifi adapter on running F35 sometimes but it will works perfectly without any reboot or hanging…
