I have a linksys EA7500 routing my internet to all my devices. On my ASUS N551J I have a dual boot windows/linux mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit.

Only the linux-partition out of all my devices drops internet continuously (I have internet for some minutes, there's never a constant period to this, and then it suddenly drops out. I then reconnect to my 5GHZ connection and back to the 2.4... it drives me crazy.

Any ideas anyone?
