Yes, there IS no such file, it is rtl8192.conf. And unless you manually edited the report file, I'm confident it is there -

rtl8192.conf      : options rtl8192ce fwlps=0 ips=0

So I suggest you correct the command and remove the dummy file you just created.

I think I know what happened. One of the suggested fixes I tried earlier was to create that file with the options shown in the report. At some point (after I generated the report file) one of the fixes I tried made a mess of things and I restored the install which had been backed up before I created that file. The rtl1892 was a typo on my part.... I'll clean up my mess and retry it. I apologize for the confusion.

I'm happy to report that one of the actions suggested by v&m on 11/23/16 appears to have solved the problem. I was away from the laptop for 2.5 hours today and when I returned, the wifi connection was still up and usable. I wish I could say for sure which tweak it was but I'm going to wait a day or two before declaring the issue solved and adding that to the thread title. Thanks to all that shared their knowledge and thoughts in this thread. After a while I will try to reverse engineer the fix to try to isolate exactly what resolved the issue.

Congratulations! While you figure out the actual cause and/or the solution, you should mark the thread as solved by editing the first post and adding [SOLVED] prefix to the subject line. It helps others users having same or similar problems, as well as us troubleshooters.

"My connection drops itself" is not sufficient to start with. Please see this 6th post of this thread to generate and post details of your wifi setup : viewtopic.php?p=629558#p629558

..or, much better for learning purpose, browse the forums to learn how to find and post at least basic technical info to start with.
