Wifi drops and requires restart to work again.


Linux Mint 18. Wifi is USB wireless. Installed driver via instructions that came with the card. rtl8812AU_8821AU is the name of the driver (I think). I'm pretty much a novice with Linux. Wifi works for a while and then whenever the computer goes to sleep, I come back and wifi won't reconnect. I restart the computer and it works again.

I don't know how can you solve it, but probably removing the usb stick and plugging in again will work - or - you can remove the kernel module and reinsert again. But need more info to continue (at least the OS you have and the correct name of the wifi).
