I am always getting disconnected from my wifi ( disconnect, then connected again after 3 seconds) but that is nothing happening in my mom's laptop(windows). This kind of thing wasn't happening to me when I was in windows and I think my linux settings(or whatever you call it is busted. Help me please!
For what it's worth I do not agree with the previous reply. In my experience flaky wireless is not "normal." Let's see if we can't get you some actual help now that the ranting's been taken care of.

, and post the results here. Then we can start narrowing down the issue.
