Network manager/Netctl: Regular wifi disconnects

hi,
i have a problem with network manager and wifi connection: often network disconnected.

For example when i try to download something with wget, after 30 seconds wifi disconnected and reconnected

$ sudo journalctl -b | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io
http://ix.io/7tmI
$ sudo cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/pippo.nmconnection
[connection]
id=pippo
uuid=censured
type=wifi
interface-name=wlan0
permissions=

[wifi]
mac-address-blacklist=
mode=infrastructure
ssid=Netgear

[wifi-security]
auth-alg=open
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
psk=censured

[ipv4]
dns-search=
method=auto

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
dns-search=
method=auto

[proxy]

Does curl not suffer this problem?  I don't quite understand why you say wget suffers many reconnection events but then show an example using curl.

Re: Network manager/Netctl: Regular wifi disconnects

Does it only happen under load or does it disconnect after ~30 seconds anyways? In the latter case, I had similar issues, when my ipv4 dhcpd was unstable - then you get a valid ipv6 address and can surf the net until the net client decides, the ipv4-retrieval times out and takes the whole connection offline. OTOH, I'm using netctl and not networkmanager.

Yeah, I'm also using netctl and in the past month or two my USB wifi stick has become less stable.  I assumed it was a dry joint in the stick myself, as it usually works for a few hours before becoming unresponsive, or if it dies intermediately after I start it, a restart mostly works.

Yes, it seems to happen only when i download something. When i surf on web connection seems stable.

Me too use a usb wifi stick. If i use it on another pc with Archlinux64 it works perfectly.
The router is near on both pc.

i have tried to use netctl instead of networkmanager. same problem xD

i have tried to add "TimeoutUp=300" and "TimeoutCarrier=300" on netctl profile but it didn't solved.

Mine works to download stuff unless it's been on too long, in which case it just overheats and stops working entirely, so I just unplug it every few hours and rely on stuff I've already downloaded to keep myself entertained.
