Hello and thank you for this answer,

I suspect that NM often switches from a router to another one (there are
always a few WiFi routers around me with the same name and using the
same network) and my drivers, my WiFi card and/or the routers/network
don't support that.

It's more about multiple access points than multiple routers, then?

Yes, you're right, sorry!

If I'm just next to a router (when the signal level is ~100%), it seems
that I don't have this problem.
Also, I think that my WiFi driver doesn't detect very well the
quality/signal level of non connected routers (many routers have a
signal level of 100% even if they are not next to me).

Is there a way to configure NM to be "less aggressive" when switching
between routers? (e.g. only switch if we're about to be disconnected and
not just to have the router with the higher signal level?)
Or an option to just disable this feature?
(I didn't find any option about that, sorry if I miss something!)

Sounds more like wpa_supplicant or the driver. You'd have to know what exactly you expect from 
NetworkManager, i.e. how exactly its communication to wpa_supplicant differs from that of Wicd. I'm not a 
Wi-Fi guru, though.

Yes, I want to know how exactly its communication to wpa_supplicant
differs from that of Wicd.
Or if we can configure wpa_supplicant to not switch between access
points (and if yes, if it's possible to configure NM to use this option)
