Why? What is to be gained?

I doubt it. Wifi stability is a function of a lot of variables including hardware in your machine and in router/modems.
there are several threads on that in this forum that might be worth your time to explore.

I would really like to know what * advantages* a newer kernel could provide on an older system.

As the system aint broke, really trying to understand reasons to fix it....


I have an older radeon board, r430, and restarting Xserver through KDM would sometimes hang, and sometimes X would not start on a cold boot, with No Screen Found, No Device Found etc. (workaround - # service restart kdm). It seems much more stable using only backported kernel 4.6

On this little Dell, the intel driver had some similar issues, so the xserver-xorg-video-intel-2016520-bpo with the 4.6 kernel has been a good fix.

I started using backports back on squeeze, it can let you maintain an older system without upgrading so often IMO. I still have a wheezy machine running the 3.16 backport that must be three years now?

I think last LTS could be a good choice,
I was using before 4.8.8 and then 4.8.12, Now im using 4.4.34, i checked that it works better than 4.8 brach in my old pc,



My conclusion..> Dont upgrade kernel if your's version performance very well, from vesion to version i find differents behaviors as for performance, and i would say than even for stability you can find differences. So, i decided to stay in that version for long.

Yes,I tried to see,

In my computer It does some things faster, but at the same time it has a weird behavior experience user, For example, sending a Mail from akonadi_maildispacher_agent, it was retained some anormal seconds before it was released. The latence response is also kind of extrange when browsing internet
It has a abrupt render response, so at the moment i give upt this kernel, and going back to 4.4.37 (This last kernel, suits at the perfection my computer, im very very happy with it). I Think i will wait for 4.10 that will be a merge from 4.9, and for then Stretch will be stable, and things will fix better, im sure. :roll:

Now I'm trying out Ubuntu Mate Zesty on my desktop Pc with kernel

Linux jfd 4.9.0-040900-lowlatency #201612111631 SMP PREEMPT Sun Dec 11 21:39:11 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


And nVidia 370 tested diver - (I plan to dual boot with Sid)

My deb-box still runs kernel 4.8.15 no need to fool around with that laptop.
