[SOLVED]WiFi Connection Randomly Disconnects

Hello, I am running BunsenLabs Linux on my desktop computer and using a D-LINK DWA-182 Rev.C WiFi adapter. It works fine, however for some reason it randomly disconnects me from my WiFi sometimes. I have no clue why, I am using the custom RTL8812AU driver from GitHub for this system and it seems to work fine it just randomly disconnects me from the WiFi. I know it's not a problem with my connection and that it's a problem with either the drivers or BunsenLabs. I ran LXLE on this computer a while ago and it did this maybe once and a while, however on BunsenLabs this problem is so frequent and intolerable that I am planning on just getting rid of that WiFi adapter and just tethering my phone to the computer. If someone could help me with this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: [SOLVED]WiFi Connection Randomly Disconnects

Have you looked for error messages in the dmesg or systemd journal output?

sudo dmesg
journalctl -b

...and grep for your wireless interface. In my case, some example output is

$ sudo dmesg | grep wlp3s0

I didn't need to do all that, uninstalling and reinstalling the driver seemed to help. Thanks for the help anyways, I didn't see anything out of the blue just the usual "RTL8812AU is already registered, aborting..." error I see during startup, this isn't really a major error as the adapter still works perfectly fine. Reinstalling helped, there's no more random disconnecting. Maybe when I first installed the driver I screwed something up, I don't know because it seems to be working okay now.
