Help with network issue

I have this weird issue that will happen to me randomly related to my network, and I have no idea what is going on. I’m going to lay out the details here and hopefully someone will have some clue as to what it is.

I’m currently using a usb wifi adapter with kernel support, so no drivers to worry about. It works fine most of the time, but randomly, I will no longer have a connection. Now nm-applet and nmcli seems to say that I do, but I don’t and things freeze if I try to restart them.

Now when I switch to tty1, I get messages that happen periodically, which I can’t stop, and they happen before I even log in or anything. They look like this

[100791.432813] mt76x2u 1-4:1.0 vendor request req:07 off:1200 failed:-110
[100791.432813] mt76x2u 1-4:1.0 vendor request req:07 off:1718 failed:-110
[100791.432813] mt76x2u 1-4:1.0 vendor request req:07 off:1798 failed:-110

(in reality those numbers in the front would be different, I believe they are timestamps)
It seems there’s 3 variations, which differ by the number before failed - 1200, 1718, and 1798.

When I try to reboot my computer (with reboot), it gets stuck in and endless loop of stop jobs, and I’m forced to just press the power button.

edit: here’s some journalctl stuff

Possibly a kernel bug. Maybe try a different kernel. If you’re on latest try the default kernel and vice-versa.
