[SOLVED] Connection failed (wifi)

[SOLVED] Connection failed (wifi)

Postby endat » Jul 17th, '13, 22:16

Mageia3,
I'm getting very sick of seeing this message... the wifi only works fine at my house, but not at work or anywhere else. At work, I have to plug an Ethernet line into my computer in order to get any work done.

I have changed every network setting imaginable, nothing works.. connection failed.

Connection failed.
Connection failed.
Connection failed.
Connection failed.
Connection failed.

It sucks I cant do something as simple as connect to a basic wireless network (open or encrypted)... I assume at this point, I'm going to have to go through command line, rummage config files, paste output, try 40 more times and maybe have an answer.. Any help?

Wireless card: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak]

edit: I have all the latest updates and I really don't wanna have to switch distros.. I like Mageia and I have everything setup the way I like it. But it needs to be functional or it's useless to me. I need this to work or I'm switching back to Fedora.

Which media did you use to install Mageia, and which desktop environment are you using? Do you use net_applet or NetworkManager?
And please provide the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep NET
ps -ef | grep -ie net


and, as root:
Code: Select all
journalctl -b -u network --no-pager
systemctl status network.service
journalctl -b | grep iwl

First of all, thank you for responding and also for helping with my last issue (installing the OS). Not sure which network manager I have, but per your previous advice I did KDE only since the Gnome network manager was preventing the OS installation. I am at work plugged into ethernet at the moment... and here are the command outputs

The only place wifi will connect is my house. I will be there tomorrow and I can post output of that connection if it helps.. but anywhere else, this is all I see.. I will donate money to the Mageia project if we can resolve this :?

You currently have networkmanager and net_applet running. The two are battling for the interface probably.
Choose one, i'd go with net_applet. I'd just remove networkmanager via urpme -a networkmanager if you don't want to use GNOME.

You didn't run those commands as root, otherwise there would be more output. Please try again.

I suppose I can live without Gnome, but I do like to have it.. for when others use my computer.

I ran the command urpme -a networkmanager, and 13 of 13 packages were uninstalled. After the networkmanager was removed, I rebooted and the wifi seems to be working. All seems well now, and I don't have to carry an embarrassing ethernet cord with me anymore. :mrgreen: Tell me, will Gnome still operate as normal? Can I get Gnome to use net_applet?

Here are the commands from before again as root (thought i had su'd before).

True to my word, I have donated €30 EUR to "Association Mageia.Org". Thank you. :geek:

Also.. regarding the reason it only worked at my house, could this be because I connected at my house before installing Gnome? Maybe net_applet had already claimed that connection? Hmmm

Well, you can still use networkmanager, Just set net_applet to not start automatically, the re-configure the connection,
keep all settings, and at the summary page, enable/check "Allow interface to be controlled by Network Manager"
See http://doc.mageia.org/mcc/3/en/content/ ... onnect-end
Then you can reinstall networkmanager and task-gnome, which will bring back gnome-control center.

For you other question, yes you can use gnome without networkmanager. net_applet will be in the lower right corner,
and will only appear when you move your mouse there. networkmanager will be locate in the top panel.
You're currently only missing gnome-control-center, that was uninstalled together with networkmanager.

Understandably.

Well, the output you provided is too much, i've removed some irrelevant stuff which is not needed anymore.
Sadly, the remaining information is still not enough. Have you been connected to the network before?
Is it WPA/WPA2 or WEP or even unencrypted?

Did you try to reconfigure the connection? Just go through it, provide the key for that network.

It's WPA2-PSK (AES encryption), never connected through this OS before.. The key is correct, but I can't even connect to the unencrypted guest network.

Options:
(x) Automatic IP
[x] Get DNS servers from DHCP
[ ] Allow users to manage this connection
[x] Start connection at boot
[ ] Enable traffic counting
[ ] Allow interface to be controlled by Network Manager
[x] Allow access point roaming

Advanced..
Extra directives: priority=1#auth_alg=SHARED
[x] get YP servers from DHCP
[x] Network Hotplugging
[x] Enable IPv6 to IPv4 tunnel

About the output.. this is what draws my attention..

You should try to disable roaming, also #auth_alg=SHARED from the Extra directives, also the Enable IPv6 to IPv4 tunnel

The output you mentioned is irrelevant/bogus, happens for every WLAN connection. Not nice, but no problem alone.

What you can try is with no network connection, scan for networks in range, as root do:
Code: Select all
iwlist wlan0 scan

You may want to remove the SSIDs before posting here for privacy reasons.

I changed the extra directives to "priority=1", disabled IPv6 to IPv4 tunnel, and disabled access point roaming.... wifi is working at work now :mrgreen:

Also, here is the output you asked for.. unplugged

AP roaming has often been a problem depending on which wifi chipset or driver is used, maybe remember that for next fresh install ;)

Re: [SOLVED] Connection failed (wifi)

I have the very same problem.

(Yesterday I switch to Mageia 6, in Mageia 5 everything worked fine, then that's not a hardware issue)

I try to disable access point roaming and checkbox seems to be unchecked, but after that annoying "connection failed" message I go to configuration window and the roaming checkbox is still checked.

What do you think I have to do in order to disable that once and for all?

Re: [SOLVED] Connection failed (wifi)

I'm using Mate on Mageia 6, and I have the very same problem.

The way I find in order to bypass the issue is to change to Gnome Shell and use the native net_applet to connect to wifi.

That works, but is annoying to have to enter to a different Desktop, connect and return to my favorite (Mate + Compiz).

Do anyone know hoy to SOLVE the issue using Mate and other "non standard" desktop?

Thanks in advance
