If it starts dropping connections again you still might want to change that to
Code: [Select]
[connection]
wifi.powersave = 2
which should FORCE wireless powersaving to off irrespective  of whether the driver does ;)

Yes, I will do that.
On a broader note, I have continued my personal quest to find distributions which just work on the stick computer.  Now, for those that don't, I apply your fix first and see what happens.  It has been successful with three distributions so far - it takes me quite a while to download a distribution - so it is a slow process.  For me, the 1a32wfc32 stick is on the way to becoming just like an ordinary computer.  So, thank you for that.  Perhaps you might like to post your fix somewhere to reach a wider audience.  Seemingly,the saga of getting the Realtek rtl8723bs adapter to work properly in linux has a way to go yet.
I haven't discarded my 'too hot' theory of the problem yet, as yesterday, it crashed again in the afternoon when the room was hot.  I seem to remember reading a review somewhere that the 1a32wfc didn't perform well in the heat.

Hi polly, sorry I didn't reply earlier.  I was out all day yesterday.  In addition to tweaking the Network Manager Power Manager, it's a good idea to set the IPv6 to Ignore and see how it goes.  Good luck with it  ;).
