Weak signal strength could cause them if you're at the margins of the
network, and the driver looses sync with the AP.  But if you still get
disconnections (ie, iwevent shows SIOCSIWAP events of 00:00:00:00:00:00)
when you're right next to the AP then we really need debug logs from the
driver to figure out why it thinks it's being kicked.
