When disconnected, type (as root):

Code: Select all
# journalctl -r


Then post the results.

Keep in mind that dropping Wifi can be caused by a variety of problems including weak signal and failing Wifi hardware. We once solved a similar problem by rotating our router 90 degrees. (Who knew that Wifi routers can be directional?)
