Wifi will not automatically connect, works otherwise.

Postby wulftone on Wed Jun 06, 2012 11:38 pm

Hey all..

So I'm still having the problem I laid out here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=198&t=100100

And in addition to the behavior listed there, it won't automatically connect until I cycle the wifi power upon reboot or relog, then it asks for a password--which is already saved, because I just have to press enter, but the dialog still comes up. I'm not sure why it's behaving this way. Also the "configure" button in the network settings gui application does nothing--it's clickable, but does nothing... is this an unimplemented feature?

Any help would be great!

Have you tried replacing network-manager with WICD?

It's sometimes an easy fix to weird network-manager issues.

Awesome, thank you. That appears to have worked!
