WiFi does not connect and keeps asking for password

Post by alibbabbe1 » Thu Jan 25, 2018 6:01 pm

I have just installed Linux mint 18.3 on my new Dell Latitude 7480 with
Qualcomm QCA61x4A 802.11ac Dual Band (2x2) Wireless Adapter.
I can connect to any wifi network I have tried besides at home.
Network Manager keeps on asking the password, although I type in the right one (I am 100% sure).
I tried to add the password through the Network Connection panel ( I googled the problem), but it didn't work either.
Thank you in advance for your help

See if changing the encryption settings on your wifi router to WPA2-AES only helps. These chipsets are a bit picky about which routers/encryption they will connect to
