Can see networks, repeating Authentication Req promt (mtk760u)

Post by AaronWisey » Thu Oct 18, 2018 10:02 pm

Hey guys, :D

So Ive just finished a fresh install of Mint 19, everything is working great so far with the exception of Wifi.
The issue im having is I am able to see my network (and others) in NetworkManager but upon attempting to connect I am constantly prompted with the Authentication Required window - Ive double checked the passphrase (consisting of lowercase letters and numbers) but the same issue wont go away - I havent been able to connect (my AP name has no spaces also).
I use WPA2 Personal as the security protocol.

The wifi adapter uses the mtk7601u chipset (Ralink).

I have a dual boot set-up with Ubuntu 18.01 in which the Wifi works just fine, although I did have similar issues when I first set that up, but cant for the life of me remember how I fixed it!

Ive been Googling and have tried everything I could find, including the obvious (restarts of Router, computer etc, blacklisting a few things, basically anything on the first few pages of results!)

Below is the output of iwconfig, ifconfig and the last part of dmesg relating to Wifi.

Any help would be -greatly- appreciated!

Kindest regards,

Kiefer. :P
