Arrow wireless keeps dropping- help check logs??


Hey all,

I'm a complete noob and trying to learn, so be patient. I connect to a University wireless through a proxy. This was all working great for about a month except the connection would drop then I would have to try multiple tries to reconnect. Then, the wireless quit connecting to the network all together. I am pretty sure the problem is on my end because I can't even connect to an open network. Here are the logs when I try to connect; could someone help me decipher them
