Description of problem:
Association to wireless AP is denied with an HP notebook.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always at work. Never at home.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the desired network icon in the KDE network chooser.
Actual results: Association denied
Expected results: Network connection
The log line where the denial occurs:
Aug 2 13:06:02 cl kernel: [16687.139597] wlo1: ::MAC:: denied association (code=17)
Please add -ddd option to OTHER_ARGS in /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant file. It should looks like showed below:
OTHER_ARGS="-u -f -ddd /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid
Then restart machine, reproduce problem and attach /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log file here.
Just a correction if anyone is trying to reproduce. The -ddd argument must be placed before the -f argument:
OTHER_ARGS="-u -ddd -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid"
The error now in messages is another. Indeed I tried sometimes and the error varies at each try.
Is it necessary to restart the machine or just restarting the service is enough?
systemctl restart wpa_supplicant.service
I restarted the machine.
