This happened to me as well.
After update from a couple of days back (6.0-BETA4) it seems to be working fine.
And it does not constantly disconnect from my AP as it used to before.
Trying to make it connect back made my laptop reboot. Now I can even reconnect changing SSID's or after I lost contact with the AP.
Give it a try and let me know.
