IGEL UMS settings to disable Network Manager Powersave

Are there any builtin settings within UMS for Network Manager to disable powersave? I’ve had multiple work from home users report wifi dropping out and found “wlan0: deauthenticating from {mac address} by local choice (Reason: 3=DEAUTH_LEAVING)” when running dmesg.

iwconfig might help:

power management shows as off, but if i run

cat /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf


wifi.powersave = 3

and i believe that shows that powersave is turned on. the documation is a little light on the powersave options

Then we could sed a bit:

ed -i “s/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/g” /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf

and reboot
