Re: Most reliable dual band driver/chipset

In regard to my issue below:

Trying to find an internal Intel based card with remote antenna.

I have Linksys USB wifi adapters and they work, but not dual band.  Not really
necessary, but why not use everything available.

Not a laptop and not a heat issue.  Something in the hardware or driver seems
to leave this adapter in some unstable state that requires a cold start,
either disconnecting the adapter from USB, rebooting the computer and sometimes
just unloading and reloading the driver.  Very irritating since it works very well when
connected, just unreliable.  Sometimes it'll stay connected for days, sometimes just
for a few minutes.

I've been using an Alfa dual band USB3 wifi adapter and while it works and when it happens to stay connected it's fast and fine. But it disconnects often for no apparent reason and won't reconnect by itself without removing and then reloading the module. Built and tried several versions of the rtl8812au and found one branch that I've been using, v5.9.xxx versions work but with the connection reliability issue.

Looking for a recommendation for an adapter and/or chip.
