I’ve noticed that on my desktop when the wireless card I have tries to connect to my wifi network, my monitor will black screen for a few seconds. This doesn’t happen when I’m connected via Ethernet.
Here are my comp specs with lspci:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 8th Gen Core Processor Host Bridge/DRAM Registers (rev 0a) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v5/E3-1500 v5/6th Gen Core Processor PCIe Controller (x16) (rev 0a) 00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 200 Series/Z370 Chipset Family USB 3.0 xHCI Controller 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH CSME HECI #1 00:17.0 RAID bus controller: Intel Corporation SATA Controller [RAID mode] 00:1b.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH PCI Express Root Port #17 (rev f0) 00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH PCI Express Root Port #1 (rev f0) 00:1c.4 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH PCI Express Root Port #5 (rev f0) 00:1c.7 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH PCI Express Root Port #8 (rev f0) 00:1d.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH PCI Express Root Port #9 (rev f0) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation Z370 Chipset LPC/eSPI Controller 00:1f.2 Memory controller: Intel Corporation 200 Series/Z370 Chipset Family Power Management Controller 00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation 200 Series PCH HD Audio 00:1f.4 SMBus: Intel Corporation 200 Series/Z370 Chipset Family SMBus Controller 00:1f.6 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM200 [GeForce GTX TITAN X] (rev a1) 01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GM200 High Definition Audio (rev a1) 02:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller: Intel Corporation SSD 660P Series (rev 03) 04:00.0 USB controller: ASMedia Technology Inc.

This hasn’t started happening until the last six months and I should have reported it then, but I guess it wore me down. Anything I can do? Maybe try to uninstall/reinstall my wifi drivers? I’m not sure which ones to remove
wpa_supplicant - WiFi authentication client and server wireless-regdb - This package contains the wireless regulatory database used by all cfg80211 based Linux wireless drivers. wireless-tools - Tools to configure wireless lan cards
I’m also seeing that my card keeps trying to connect over and over again to the same network. When it is connected, the speeds are about 0.16 Mbps, but all other machines on my network are getting 15-20 MBps. I’m connecting on 2.4GHz network for this tower.
Any help or insight would be appreciated!
