networking – On starting up laptop WiFi works then after 5 minutes it stops working

This happened after an upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04.

Here is result of sudo lshw -C network:

here is the output of dmesg running it once before connecting and then after failing to connect.

I have three WiFi networks at home and whenever I try to connect to any of them I get a notification saying: Activation of network connection failed.

Here is also some data from syslog while trying to connect.

Also, I have a problem with snap. I can’t install snap packages. I’ve documented this problem here it might be related somehow…

I’ve also tried installing a different driver for the card, one from GitHub r8101 that didn’t change anything. I’ve also been looking into Google for a while but nothing helped.
