Description of problem:
At my school, we have full coverage by multiple wireless broadcast stations throughout the building. A student is expected to connect to the "-guest" network, which is unsecured by any secrets. I am unable to connect to any of those wireless broadcast stations, all of which have the same SSID "<school corporation's abbreviation>-guest".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.9.9.0-41.git20131003.fc20 (Output of "sudo NetworkManager --version")
I am using a Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) running on a HP Pavilion dv6z-6c00 laptop.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disconnect from any wireless networks.
2. Attempt to connect to one of the broadcast stations using NM-applet or any other interface to NetworkManager
NetworkManager tries to connect to the network, sometimes claiming success but rapidly disconnecting after that.
NetworkManager successfully connects to the closest network with the SSID (with the highest signal) and maintains a connection with it until it is disconnected or out of range, then, if still commanded to connect to the same SSID, finds the closest one.
I would be glad to provide any extra information or logs, not sure what to attach.
Does your Wi-Fi work at general, for other networks (SSIDs)?
Please, as a start, would you attach this:
* NM logs when attempting top connect
in /var/log/messages file or using journal
# journalctl -u NetworkManager
* /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log or journalctl -u wpa_supplicant
* nmcli dev wifi
I am no longer able to provide information on this request. It appears that changes that have occurred have allowed things to work again.
I am no longer able to provide information on this request—drivers must have been working. (I am only commenting here to clear a needinfo request I've had active for the last 4 years.)
