Extremely high packet loss (90-95%) after several hours of Wi-Fi usage

I installed LineageOS x86 14.1 (Android 7.1.2) to a laptop (HP Pavilion 10 TS Notebook PC - e010nr), and it works just fine, except for an odd Wi-Fi issue.

After a few hours of being connected (about 4 hours), pages will load the title, then stop. I didn't get an x for "Connected, no internet). I then went to the terminal (left ALT + right arrow) and typed in:


to test Internet connectivity. After about 50 ping attempts, I stopped and got

--- ping statistics ---
50 packets transmitted, 4 recieved, 92% packet loss, time 49352ms

I tried turning off Wi-Fi and turning it back on again. I was able to reconnect very fast, but got "Connected, no Internet" and the same amount of packet loss.

The situation is always resolved after rebooting, and also does not happen on the other operating system installed on the computer (Linux). If I do the same test on Linux Mint 19, I get (at the end):

--- ping statistics ---
50 packets transmitted, 50 received, 0% packet loss, time 49080ms

which would make it an issue only this computer Android has. (A Yuntab K107 with Android 5.1 also does not have this issue).

Can I (somehow) fix this issue? It's somewhat annoying to have to reboot every so often, even though it doesn't take very long.

(The question WiFi high packet loss at home network doesn't seem to be this issue, as the issue mentioned in that question happens immediately, while mine happens every few hours of connection)
