    You can keep a watch on the wicked.service logging in a terminal window with
    Code:
    sudo journalctl -fu wicked
    When it next drops, examine the output for relevant information.

    What wireless hardware device is in use?
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --wlan
    Check the link quality and received signal level etc...
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/iwconfig
    For continuous monitoring, do
    Code:
    watch /usr/sbin/iwconfig

    First,
    You should know that when you post output like your error, you should wrap that text in [CODE] tags which can be done easily with the hash (#) button in your web-based editor.

    "Unreachable host" generally means that your network adapter is not does not have working network settings,
    So you need to verify your networking is working with the following command
    Code:
    systemctl status network
    then run the following command which will display your network settings
    Code:
    ip addr
    Assuming that your network service is running fine,
    You should consideryour wireless Access Point is powered on and functioning properly,
    then whether your wireless connection iworking and configured properly.

    Assumes that your wireless adapter is configured as a DHCP client which would be the case probably overy 99% of the time.
