This update made my wireless adapter's connection unstable. After 5 minutes or so of being connected to the wireless, network connectivity would drop but my laptop still said it was connected to the wireless. Downgrading from this update fixed the issue.

Laptop: Dell XPS 13 Wireless Adapter: Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 32) Wireless Access Point: Cisco WAP 561

So I took a look at the logs. I noticed that I got this log message every few mins: "wpa_supplicant[1167]: wlp58s0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with xxxxxxx [GTK=CCMP]". On some of those rekeys, it'd cause the network to drop and then about 90 seconds later, NetworkManager noticed this and issued "NetworkManager[1019]: <info> [1505177173.5314] connectivity: (wlp58s0) timed out". My wireless access point was set to have this rekey happen every 300 seconds. I changed my WAP to use 86400 seconds for now and it seems to be working ok. This issue only appeared after updating the linux-firmware.

I'm having the same exact issue as mprahi is having, but after upgrading to F27 (pre-beta), which also has the upgraded firmware. While it is Fedora 27 (pre-release) now on my laptop, the current version of linux-firmware is 20170828-76.gitb78acc9, same as this (at least according to the URL).

I've confirmed that a previous version of the firmware for my XPS 13 (9360) QCA6174 by building linux-firmware-20170622-75.gita3a26af2 from a src.rpm (rpmbuild --rebuild linux-firmware-20170622-75.gita3a26af2.fc26.src.rpm), installing it, and rebooting. Things have been stable for over an hour now on the older firmware, whereas the connection would silently stop working after 5 - 10 minutes with this firmware.

This version of linux-firmware of is basically a huge regression and major deal-breaker for anyone using a recent XPS 13 (which is quite a popular laptop to run Linux on now — approximately half the laptops at GUADEC were XPS 13s, for some idea of how big this issue is).

Open a bug please.
