I am not sure if your problem is that you never successfully fully
connected or that you get disconnected intermittently.

If it never successfully connected then you probably need to replace your
psk value with a value coming out the tool wpa_passphrase. It will
output something like this:

$ wpa_passphrase goose test1232

You should replace the psk with the value from that output.
