How to disable wifi power save to prevent disconnects

By Petrakis

I saw some posts about how weak the wifi is, and indeed it is… It kept losing signal and closing my ssh so I decided to try an old trick of mine. (Which happens to be an issue in all the Single Board Computers i have tried)

Since I disabled the chipset power saving mode I haven´t had disconnects, so It might be useful to you.

iw wlan0 set power_save off

I have to add that not only doesn´t disconnect anymore but it increased the speed of transfering files too.
