problem with EIGRP configuration

This is my the very first post in here.

I am a newbie to CCNA I have started learning like 3 months ago... so the question may be funny or at least elementary.

Could anyone tell me what's wrong with the configuration of S0/0/0 R1 and S0/0/0 R2 ?
Those 2 interfaces form adjacency and they lose the adjacency after few seconds.
I have configured as the same values bandwidth and hello-interval.
There is also md5 authentication key which seems to be okay (at least for me)
On S0/0/0 of R1 there's manually configured summary address of 3 loopback interfaces is it the correct summary addresss for:
Lo1 Lo2 and Lo3 ??

Please see the attached screenshots. 99

    You screenshot did not load. Paste up you compete configuration so we can troubleshoot also if you did it in PT put it in Dropbox or Gdrive with a link here.

    This has something to do with you setting the hello timers for those interfaces. I quickly tested this in my PT and had the same problem with the hello-timer at >15. It's possible that PT hard codes the dead-timer instead of making it 3 * Hello. Values <15 work fine.

    So instead of
    hello-interval = 30 
    dead-interval = hello-interval * 3
    ---> dead-interval = 90

    It is
    hello-interval = 30 
    dead-interval = 15
    ---> dead-interval = 15

    So the router is telling it's neighbor *always* to expect hello's within 15 seconds or less but it's sending them every 30 seconds causing the connection to flap. icon_cry.gif
