Yeah I had similar troubles on a laptop with an intel wifi (6.1 + 6.2).
I posted something about a week or two back, but I didn't get any
response here. Not sure where to go from here though, as I'm having
similar troubles with the ral driver too (desktop- 6.3).

Seems to be wpa supplicant from my troubleshooting. If I manually
reassociated with the iwi it was ok, but didn't hold out- I was going to
setup a script to run a check and do this. The ral driver works if I set
it auto, but wpa supplicant will only work in manual mode. Catch 22 on
that one...
