[xubuntu-users] looking for conclusive solution to intermittent WiFi connection

Good day,

I use Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS on a Lenovo Ideapad 330 IGM
WiFi has the habit of dropping intermittently.
Rfkill list all shows:
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

Have followed recommendations found on Ubuntu forums. No conclusive fix.
Ideapad equipped with Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 kernel ath10k_pci
In one of the recommendations found the kernel version updated to last

In Settings
 IPv6 disabled.
IPv4 Automatic
DNS Automatic On,

When WiFi disconnects I open Terminal and type: "sudo service
system-manager restart" sometimes helps reconnect.
nmcli r wifi on does not make difference.
When "restart" as mentioned above does not reconnect; I get out of Firefox
and GoogleMail; reboot and start again.

This is not too burdensome. Irritating when it happens during
videoconferencing--frequent nowadays--you drop out for the time it takes to
get back into the conference.

I have not started on the configuration of the TEW-652BRP router yet. Once
I do; what is the recommended setting for the router?

Appreciate input.
Best regards
