Sometimes Wifi fails to connect and even not shown

Sometimes when I turn on my Laptop there is no any wifi Icon So I have to restart my laptop to see wifi Icon on top bar. Also Sometime I can not connect to a wifi network untill I restart my laptop does not matter 5Ghz or 2.4.
Also Hotspot icon disappers when I connect to a wifi network does not matter if 2.4 or 5Ghz.
A really very humble request can you include pathces for Intel Wireless cards in Garuda Assistant or settings? like turning on 5Ghz Hotspot. I know it is upstream kernel issue. But As a complete OS there should be some toogles for pathces in Garuda settings manager.

Please post garuda-inxi, not inxi -Faz.

I thought to check whether you are dual-booting Windows or not (Windows is able to hold on to the network card while hibernating or in the quick boot "shutdown" state), but inxi -Faz does not show this.

Is patching the Linux kernel a "humble" request? :thinking:

It's probably best to fix issues with the kernel at the kernel development level, not the OS level. If you would like to be helpful, submit a bug report for your issue: Reporting bugs — The Linux Kernel documentation

I never dual boot linux and windows, I only use Garuda Linux. By the way Template asked me to post out put of inxi -FaZ here but anyway:

@afzl-wtu I have a laptop with similar symptoms. The only conclusion that I was able to come up with for my current use case is that the wireless NIC that is on my laptop is not fully supported by Linux. It is not an issue with the OS.

I have a wireless NIC that is CnVio v1 key E, and model is an intel 9560NGW. Perhaps it may be a compatibility issue with Linux?

Dont. Change.Anything.

I have just set-up a laptop with garuda for the first time, before only with PC, and 100% this is a bug for laptops.

If you power on with the ethernet connected it works , but if you then disconnect and move , sometimes you will not see any wifi OR Bluetooth connections - to fix I have to power down , re-connect the ethernet and reboot - and hey presto wifi and bluetooth return.

Seems like the eth0 and wifi are fighting over address space or something?
