Hi All,
For the past few days my wireless from my laptop keeps dropping and reconnecting. Is there a way to diagnose the actual reason? I have only dmesg and that mentions trying 1/3 and so on

[1114623.468230] wlp3s0: authenticate with 11:22:ab:22:33:ee
[1114623.485093] wlp3s0: send auth to 11:22:ab:22:33:ee (try 1/3)
[1114623.523879] wlp3s0: send auth to 11:22:ab:22:33:ee (try 2/3)
[1114625.054947] wlp3s0: send auth to 11:22:ab:22:33:ee (try 3/3)
[1114625.572949] wlp3s0: authentication with 11:22:ab:22:33:ee timed out
[1114626.855321] wlp3s0: authenticate with 11:22:ab:22:33:ee
[1114626.871884] wlp3s0: send auth to 11:22:ab:22:33:ee (try 1/3)
[1114626.874246] wlp3s0: authenticated

This happens quite frequently. Is there a way to diagnose the problem?
I am a newbie for networking.

Network card model would help to better understand the problem, someone with similar card may have passed through this same issue.
Code:
lspci

should give some information about card model and kernel module.

Probably some neighbor set up a new access point, interfering with yours. Wireless sucks. Before you take a hammer and chisel and start fixing your computer do a scan, how many access points are nearby? What channels they are using? Did I say wireless sucks?
