Repeated "Authorization Required" message on certain network

Post by mttwhitney » Sat May 12, 2018 9:38 pm

Hey, this is my first time posting here and I am fairly new to Linux.
My problem is when I am trying to connect to a specific wireless network at my partners house I am unable to connect. I have no problem connecting to this network on a Windows machine and I know that the password I am entering is correct. I have tried saving the password in the "edit connections" tab under network settings as I have seen suggested elsewhere but this has not helped. I have no problem connecting with LM on my home network or other wireless home networks I have used, but I need to use the problem network quite often and I would like to be able to do so with LM.
If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it, thanks!

Have you checked to ensure the security settings match between the router and the PC - for example WPA & WPA2 Personal or whatever on both.
