Dmesg log

I've recently installed Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-1 with Intel Wireless-AC 9260.

I have not identified the reason why it crashes, but it seems to randomly crash, sometimes in game, sometimes while browsing, etc ...

I am running Manjaro linux with kde, the wifi is governed by network manager.

The screen freezes, wifi connection drops and it is very hard to switch to a tty.
The network connection sometimes drops without freezing the screen. 

The card has no issues on windows.

Dmesg that disabled the interface

Appending new dmesg log of an error that totaly disabled the interaface, had to reboot. Usually the device would come back online by itself. Will be testing other kernels.

With kernel version 5.2.21 it works perfectly, might be a regression with kernel 5.3, will try with 5.4 when it comes out.

This is happening to me too, also on kernels 5.3 and current rc of 5.4 but also not on 5.2. I might need to move on to the LTS kernel since 5.2 is already EOL and 5.3 and 5.4 are mostly unusable because of iwlwifi.
