WIFI not working after LMDE installed

Postby hapete on Fri Mar 28, 2014 11:11 am

After installing LMDE my wifi will not connect. I am using wpa2 personal security settings and each time i try to logon it asks for the login credentials. After I enter the login credentials it gets caught in a loop wanting the credentials entered again. It does recognized the wifi signal, I just cannot connect. Any help on where to look would be greatly appreciated! I like everything else about LMDE and would really like to get the wifi working! Here is my system info!

Wifi is now working! I changed my wifi card to a ralink and it is now working fine. Seems the realtek was incompatible!
