WiFi authentication required

Postby Alandb » Wed Oct 18, 2017 2:05 pm

New installation of mint 18.2 and all good, then I changed provider to sky fibre and the problem started.
I keep getting WiFi network authorisation required pop up, I click connect but a couple of seconds later up it comes again. I've deleted the network then restarted it, it worked for a minute or so and then again kept asking for authorisation again & again. Mobiles, iPads and other laptop(windows) all connecting fine.

See https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php ... st13614520
It is likely the encryption used on the wifi router causing the issue or it might be on a crowded channel

Go into network manager settings for the connection and add 8.8.8.8 as an additional DNS, then reboot

Power management enabled on wifi and that causes some issues

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = .*/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf

Code: Select all

systemctl restart network-manager.service

See if it works better

Intermittent.

I can live with it as it's lasting for a few minutes before it kicks me off, then I can restart the connection easily enough.

Any suggestions? Should I get a usb wifi adapter?

cheers,Alan

Can you disable TKIP encryption on the wifi router? It also seems that there are 2 access points with the same name and that might be causing some issues.

A USB adapter might work better than your Broadcom

I've disabled it between the broadcom adapter but still not holding a connection.

Better to go for the usb option I think.

Thanks for all your help, certainly got me introduced to linux and using terminal, so no bad thing.

Should I close this post? How?

I forgot about having you disable UFW as it looks like it is blocking some mDNS traffic that could cause this issue
