For a few weeks, my wifi-connection doesn't work on all of my notebooks. When I start my systems, the connection failes and reconnects many times, sometimes it is not able to finish the connection.

Additional info:

It happens on my Lenovo notebooks, the most of them are Thinkpads. I'm using the networkmanager.

Steps to reproduce:

Try to connect to a wifi router with a notebook/thinkpad (intel wifi). It happens an all of my computers I installed the latest updates a few weeks ago.
This task depends upon

You need to provide more details: system specs, which wifi router/ap you're connecting to and more important: logs.

My Systems are: Thinkpad L520, L512, L430, R500, X220 Tablet, R400, T400 and an Ideapad 120S. All have got Intel wifi-chips (iwlwifi). The Router is an AVM Fritz!Box 7490. I'm sorry, but I don't know very much about networkmanager etc. Which logs do you need and where do I get those from?

Where you get almost all logs, journalctl.
