[SOLVED] Unable to connect to wifi nw after mageia6 upgrade

[SOLVED] Unable to connect to wifi nw after mageia6 upgrade

Postby voxel » Jan 25th, '18, 19:12

Hello all ^^)

I have updated a laptop from mageia 5 to mageia 6 and got problems with the wifi :(
it's a Samsung NP350E7C model with an Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 wifi card.

Wifi was working fine before but after the update all I get is "connection failed" message when configuring it with drakconf or trying to connect to any network shown.

So I came there and done all that is said in those threads : viewtopic.php?f=25&t=12202 and viewtopic.php?t=10150&p=58914

but the wifi is still not working :(

So I'm quite lost...

here is the datas I've got :

so after all this I've done what's is explained after with drakconnect and all the remaining but to no avail as I still can't connect to wifi networks :-(

An idea of what's goes wrong ?

thanks by advance :)

You currently have networkmanager and net_applet running at the same time, those may fight over the network interface. You should disable autostart as described here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5782

Apart from that, I don't see anywhere a connection attempt for the wireless interface, but you probably want to first fix the point mentioned above.
