Wi-fi stops working - Armbian - cel - 06-18-2019

Greetings all,
I am a new user of a Pinebook 11.6" 1080P. I am experiencing an issue where the wifi interface stops working after some amount time - about one hour. After that, it shows no networks available and persists in that state until the system is rebooted. I am running wpa_supplicant from systemd with the default options; Network Manager is disabled. Currently I am running Armbian_5.86_Pinebook-a64_Ubuntu_bionic_next_4.19.38_desktop -  but I think I also experienced this issue with Armbian_5.86_Pinebook-a64_Debian_stretch_next_4.19.38 and maybe even with the stock KDE system. Has anyone dealt with an issue like this? Is there a kernel module I could try reloading or some way to reset the network interface so I don't have to reboot the computer to get back online?

I found what kernel module to reload. So now my semi-workaround is to a run a ping command continuously, and when I start seeing "connect: Network is unreachable", run:
sudo rmmod 8723cs; sudo modprobe 8723cs
