some time ago I switched to Manjaro 19.0 Xfce on my laptop and everything worked fine. However, few days ago I started having wifi issues - sometimes system recognized the adpater but couldn't find any network, sometimes it couldn't even find the adapter. After some googling I realised it worked fine only when I booted my laptop pluged in, although later the connection would be extremely slow or even not working (that's rather not the router's fault, other devices worked alright and the problem occured also with my phone's hotspot). I tried those kernels:
- linux419 - 4th and the last one installed
- linux53 - installed as the 1st one
- linux55 - 3rd
- linux54-rt - 2nd
On 4.19 it seemed to work fine, but then after waking from suspension the network manager would show
device not ready info. After changing back to 5.3 kernel the wifi would work exactly as on the 4.19 kernel.
I also tried to reinstall linux-firmware, but with no effect.
The system couldn't recognize the BT adapter once, if it has any connection with the issue.

EDIT: Just before a moment the connection cracked out of the blue. The network manager showed wifi as connected, but no website would load.
