Issues with Wi-Fi

My ThinBook with Debian is installed with latest updates given by you.

But it still faces issues with Wi-Fi.

Major issue being, laptop fails to show (and connect) any wi-fi networks available, after rebooting laptop from hibernation. I am forced to shut down and reboot again, after which all the wi-fi networks become suddenly visible (!) and then can connect over wi-fi.

What can be the problem and solution to it?

Thank you

This seems to be a bug, and I too have noticed a similar issue with Wifi.

Sorry, there is no immediate solution for this. I suggest you try using 'sleep' instead of hibernating, if that helps.

I will try to narrow down the issue and will look for a fix.

Will try sleep over hibernate.

But in sme random instances i now am facing issue when laptop is ON as well. Wi-Fi signals disappear at random and though other devices can see those connections, my ThinBook fails to even find these networks. The icon for wi-fi goes red with LAN symbol on it. What this might be due to? Any patch you have for that?

This could be a hardware issue, maybe with the power supply to radio(wifi) module, I request you to please raise a ticket with the RDP.
