    NVM Update for Intel has fixed up the issue of loosing network connection or network sleeping at the moment as no issues have been occured since two days ... hope it stays that way .. but my other network problems seems to continue ..

    Network showing yellow mark but allowing internet access flawlessly...

    3 cold boots thus far and all good.

    I'll mark this solved after a dozen or so times without incident.

    After a solid week of non-issues I've marked this as solved. The only question that remains for me is what did this patch do and what was the cause of the problem?

    When I can't figure something out that seems to fix itself I blame it on an intermittent hardware problem of unknown origin. That way I don't expect myself to be able to fix it. I sleep better. I know what you mean about the curiosity though. I remember when I was a kid there was this fragrance that was very pleasant I'd encounter every now and then in various department stores. I could never find out what it was. I accepted the fact I probably never will. For one thing it was nearly impossible to describe in words since it didn't smell like anything else in my experience. It just goes that way sometimes.
