It took me a while to figure out where the problem was, so I'm possitive many users would have the same problem as us, but they are either not realizing it (it only becomes really noticeable with long high bandwidth transfers, and not every one does that) or they are just blaming router/ISP or whatever.

I have refreshed the upstream bug I created: Please, feel free to contribute there if you feel like it.

Just wanted to let you guys know, that you're not alone with this problem. I already had problems with these background-scans before in Linux Mint and manually applied this patch here. Some months ago I moved on to ArchLinux and got the same problems. For quite some time I was using connman and yes ... you know ... it is also scanning in the background and there seems to be no way to turn it off easily. (main-config isn't in the /etc/-folder and config doesn't gets applied) So I went back to NetworkManager now, since it has more options and the GUI is more reliable. Hope this finally fixes the lag spikes when streaming games to my laptop. And more hopefully I would like the Dev to not be like "but muh roaming". The trick with the static BSSID never worked for me in any version of network-manager and this way it wouldn't be an easy solution to me. An option and implementation to disable background-scanning via GUI would be appreciated. BONUS: An option to set disabled BackgroundScanning as start parameter.

Yep, at least there are 19 of us that have been able to detect this problem and use this workaround, and that's only in Arch.

I hope NM developers will take us into account... but they won't.
In a few months from now I will have a new laptop and maybe my problems will be solved.

This solved my wifi connectivity problems on my Surface Book. I had to remove Bluetooth software first though (bluez, blueberry).

Updated to 1.8.0. They are supposed to have fixed some of the roaming stuff. Cannot try now since I'm at work and don't want to reboot the system. Has anyone tested if this patched version is still needed?

I've filled a bug upstream. If anyone is interested on comment, please, do so.

Unfortunately, yes. I tried vanilla 1.6, spikes still happen.

Updated to version 1.6.0. Does anyone know if this is still required? They might have fixed the bug, I don't really know...
