I have setup a WPA2-EAP TLS WiFi access point at home and everything works fine usually. Unfortunately, though, many times I'll drop my connection to the access point and won't be able to reconnect.

Here's output from /var/log/syslog:

This is, needless to say, extremely annoying and the only workaround I've found in the past is to restart my computer. I've sometimes had success with disabling wireless in the Network Manager and then re-enabling it, but this doesn't always work. I've also tried reloading wl with modprobe, but that also doesn't usually work.

My router is running OpenWRT and I configured the EAP network myself. One thing to note is that my other machines don't have this problem at all with the network. My Android devices and my laptop (running the same distribution as this desktop machine) don't have this problem.

Any ideas on where to start to debug this issue?

EDIT: Adding Output from lshw -c network

Here is requested output from wpa_supplicant on PasteBin. Not sure, but there seems to be an OpenSSL issue.

On the surface this seems like an issue with the NIC + drivers you're using. Can you provide us w/ the model of the NIC? I'm looking for output from this cmd: sudo lshw -c network. This might be a lead, based on the error output you're getting: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/+bug/1114281 –  slm Feb 20 at 1:41

Adding that to the question. –  Naftuli Tzvi Kay Feb 20 at 3:02
    
If possible, can you run wpa_supplicant command with verbose mode and paste the output ? –  SHW Feb 26 at 9:33
    
@SHW Can you show me how to do that? Not sure what command to run. –  Naftuli Tzvi Kay Feb 26 at 21:28
