WIFI connection unstable

When I try to connect to the internet wifi, it connects on very few occasions. I do not know stuff related to wifi in my hardware, and I've never done anything related to wifi on my manjaro either. But when I try to connect to wifi it fails on so many occasions. The wifi itself is fine because on my windows and phone it works perfectly.
Can anyone tell me what to look for?

You will need to post your hardware details before anyone can effectively help you. Enter the following command in terminal:

inxi -Fxzc0

Here's my output

Has it been like this since you installed, or did the problems start after a kernel update.

I now notice you are on kernel 4.9.86-1. Perhaps you should install a more recent kernel where they may have better support for A/C WIFI drivers. You can install a newer kernel via Manjaro Settings Manager -> Kernel.

It had been like this since I installed. I'll try updating the kernel though. Thanks for your advice.

It seems to be working better in the first glance. But I'll test it for some time. Thank you!

You're welcome. Hope this fixes your wifi permanently.
Be sure to mark the thread solved if this fix is satisfactory.
