Hi! My connection keeps falling periodically. It can go stable for an entire day, but it can be as bad as falling every five minutes. The network manager applet icon stays the same as if I was still connected, but I'm not able to load any page. I'm using manjaro for a year, but this behavior only started maybe a week or two ago. It happens both at work and at home.
Relevant lshw output:

I think it has something to do with this
dmesg output. If I keep watching it, the connection drops precisely when this happens:
[10653.936352] wlp3s0: disconnect from AP 0c:80:63:06:fc:e9 for new auth to b0:be:76:43:fb:29 [10653.943816] wlp3s0: authenticate with b0:be:76:43:fb:29 [10653.994547] wlp3s0: send auth to b0:be:76:43:fb:29 (try 1/3) [10653.995386] wlp3s0: authenticated [10654.014758] wlp3s0: associate with b0:be:76:43:fb:29 (try 1/3) [10654.028214] wlp3s0: RX ReassocResp from b0:be:76:43:fb:29 (capab=0x411 status=0 aid=3) [10654.031485] wlp3s0: associated
It general, the two relevant addresses are the same, wlp3s0 for some reason keeps switching between the two every now and then.
I already tried setting random mac address as no. Didn't any help. Here's my
# Configuration file for NetworkManager. # See "man 5 NetworkManager.conf" for details. [device] wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no
Any help is appreciated!
