wicd can't connect to wifi on lenovo X230
Last modified: 2014-07-01 18:59:26 EDT
Description of problem:
This is probably a device specific bug:
wicd doesn't connect to open wireless
fails to connect to WPA2 wireless (Bad password)
This occurs on lenovo X230 with:
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)
but works fine on lenovo T520 with:
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (rev 3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 184.108.40.206-7
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try connecting to wifi
I've seen this behavior in some systems before. Can you try with the default tools in Fedora (GNOME with NetworkManager) and see if you are able to connect. I want to verify that this is a lower level problem and not specifically related to wicd.
It worked fine with NetworkManager. I'm a tiling wm user and I avoid most of the GUI stuff, but I do start the NetworkManager service for my home network and it connects automatically.
Also, I migrated my /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf from my working machine to my problem machine. This does allow me to connect to say 'attwifi' at Starbucks when I start wicd via systemctl, but if I want to connect to a new WPA2 network, it would just fail with a Bad password error.
Hope that helps
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
