Note that pae is eap spelled backwards.

In the more advanced types of wireless security, an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is used. EAP was originally designed to secure dial-up connections, but was extended to multiple IEEE 802 "Wi-Fi" standards. As suggested by the name, EAP is able to handle multiple different types of security -- most popular in the wireless world: 802.1X, WPA (Radius), and WPA-PSK.

An EAP disconnect once in a while is probably normal.

A repeating cycle of EAP disconnects, or an EAP disconnect that will not reconnect is not normal. If this happens, see /faq/12948.
