I'm using wicd for my laptop network connections. It is working fine with wired connections and un-secured wireless, but I get this when I try to connect to a secured wireless:
Code:
sudo tail wicd.log

Prior to installing sys-kernel/linux-firmware-20120924 I was getting

Code:

(cd /etc/init.d && ln -s net.lo net.wlan0)
rc-update add net.wlan0 default


You might need to make some modifications
to /etc/conf.d/net to accomodate the wireless stuff
(modules=, config_wlan0=. and routes_wlan0=).

(Worked for me with zd1211rw driving a USB wifi adapter,
firmware in /lib/firmware/zd1211rw, and wpa_supplicant.)

Thank you for the advice, but I have already gotten it working manually. I wanted to get wicd working so I didn't have to do everything manually. Wicd normally works fine except when it involves connecting to a protected wireless connection (WEP, WPA1, or WPA2). On protected connections it times out or returns a bad password error. Occasionally wicd fails to connect to an unsecure wireless network and I have to do
Code:
sudo dhcpcd wlan0
to get it to connect.

The passwords are correct. The encryption format matches on the wireless router and in wicd. There has to be something simple I'm missing, but I can't figure what it may be.

I have not used wicd. I have wpa_supplicant installed,
with configuration to connect to my local wireless router
in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. There is
a script in /etc/conf.d/ called wpa_supplicant, but it
is empty. (wpa_supplicant is basically managing the default
interface, -iwlan0, and using the default driver,
-Dwext, so it does not need arguments for a customized
wpa_supplicant command in /etc/conf.d/wpa_supplicant.)

There is also a /etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant script that I have
not modified, but wpa_supplicant does not appear in
"rc-update show" output, so it apparently gets run as
a subprocess of some other /etc/init.d/ script when the wifi
adapter is enabled.

"ln -s /etc/init.d/net.lo /etc/init.d/net.wlan0" gives you a startup
script for network over wifi, and that is what is added to the
default runlevel with "rc-update add net.wlan0 default".

I have
Code:

modules-"wpa_supplicant"

in /etc/conf.d/net. I also have variables setting network address
and default route in /etc/conf.d/net, which are basically duplicates
of those one would use for ethernet, only they are named
"config_wlan0" and "routes_wlan0" (instead of "config_eth0"
and "routes_eth0").

That is it. Once net.wlan0 is added to the default runlevel
with rc-update, the network connects to a wifi router and
starts automatically at boot.

If you are connecting on demand with wicd, you may need some
additional configuration in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
and /etc/conf.d/net, plus whatever config files wicd itself uses.

(The kernel driver part of it, zd1211rw, has simply been not a problem
with this particular piece of USB hardware. The firmware was downloaded
from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/zd1211/files/zd1211-firmware/
You would probably need to enable whatever device driver matches your
own wifi hardware, but it sounds like your problems are at a higher level,
in enabling and configuring the right init scripts, wpa_supplicant.conf,
and whatever config files wicd uses.)

if you're going to use wicd you need to comment out the stuff in /etc/conf.d/net. Also you need to add rc_hotplug="!net*" to /etc/rc.conf. make sure you remove any net.eth0 or net.wlan0 from rc-update. then add wicd to rc-update make sure that any of the net.eth0 or net.wlan0 scrpts in /etc/init.d are stopped. also make sure you remove dhcpcd from rc-update, and make sure the script for it in /etc/init.d is stopped. Also important is that wicd is nothing more than a interface to wpa_supplicant, it will write its own configuration for it.

See wicd -replaces- gentoo's rc scripts for setting up the network. it does everything itself, all you have to do is make sure that wlan0 exists , and then add wicd to rc-update, and then /etc/init.d/wicd start. Thats it. setting up wicd is a cake walk. configuration is found in /etc/wicd/ anything you need to configure for the network will be found in here.

I assume that duby2291 means the wlan0 *device* here. That
is probably created by udev if the appropriate kernel driver
is enabled. On my system, there is no /dev/wlan0,
wlan0 appears as a USB device. But you can see it in
/proc/net/dev, and also in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.

(When I changed from a USB wifi adapter to a pci wifi adapter,
udev wrote a new rule for the pci adapter and appended a rule
for wlan1 in 70-persistent-net.rules, which led to some confusion
at boot. You might take a look at that file.)

In which case if your wifi is wlan1 then you just have to edit /etc/wicd/manager-settings.conf to use that instead of wlan0

duby,
I've done that. it works fine with an unsecured wireless connection, but still fails with the errors I posted in my first post if the connection is secured. I've double and triple checked the password. I've even reduced it to five characters, and the results are still the same.

Code:

Try turning powersave off and see if that helps. I dont know that it will, but that option has caused me grief with several wifi adapters in the past.

In your first post in this thread, you had this in dmesg:
Code:

wlan0: 00:22:b0:d4:ba:46 denied association (code=43)


In this document: http://my.safaribooksonline.com/book/networking/wireless/0596100523/802dot11-framing-in-detail/wireless802dot112-chp-4-sect-3

In "Table 4-6. Status codes", we find this:
Quote:

43 (802.11i) Authentication and Key Management Protocol (AKMP) not valid


(There is another "Table 4-5. Reason Codes", but code 43 is a reserved
value there.)

What is odd about this are the lines a couple of lines before in your
dmesg that say you successfully authenticated, which might lead one
to believe that your station and the access point agree on what the
(encrypted) PSK is. Why would it then fail on another exchange of frames
involved with association?

Is there some place in wicd's config where you set arguments to
wpa_supplicant? You could set "-d" or "-dd" for debug output from
wpa_supplicant and "-f [pathname]" to get a log specifically from
wpa_supplicant. wpa_supplicant should be setting up the frames
between the station and access point before handing them off to
the hardware for transmission and decoding frames received by
the hardware driver (if I am understanding correctly how all of this
works).

So (a guess) is wpa_supplicant coding the frame wrong or is the
hardware driver (or the hardware itself) corrupting it? Maybe
wpa_supplicant debug output has information in more detail.

I'm not sure if that did the trick or if it was me restarting the wireless router to turn the WPA2 back on, but it's working.

I turned on the debug mode in wicd. All the wicd.log has was a very long list alternating between eth0 ifconfig and wlan0 ifconfig. No errors appeared. I blew away the log to see if something else would appear, but now the log won't return. I checked dmegs and got this possible error or is it normal?

I worry that I'll run into the same issue that I did with Mint on my netbook. I disconnect from the wireless router without disconnecting properly and I'll not be able to re-connect without restarting the router.

There is one sure fire way to tell. Turn power save back on and see if the problem returns. If it doesnt return, then you probably want to keep power save on anyways.

So the authentication between your wifi client station and the router
succeeds, apparently every time, but association fails at first, and
wpa_supplicant keeps retrying and eventually it succeeds after some
apparently random number of retries. (At least that is what that last
log showed.)

From what I read, the encrypted PSK is used for both authentication
and association exchanges between station and access point, so if
authentication succeeds, the encryption of the PSK by wpa_supplicant
is recognized and acknowledged by the access point (wifi router here).

Could this be simple radio interference corrupting the association
frames from your station to the access point that fail? Try setting a
different wifi channel for both the router and clients?

(Although one would expect that sometimes authentication frames
would fail, too, if this were an interference artifact. Maybe authentication
frames are shorter than association frames and consequently succeed
more easily?)

I've turned power save back on and it hasn't changed anything.. yet.

It's possible, but doubtful. The only other wireless devices I have in the house are cordless phones that run in either the 5.4 or 5.8GHz range (I can't remember off hand). I've changed the router from automatic channel to a specific channel and I'll see if that changes anything. Problem is the phones automatically choose their channel and there is no way to manually specify. However, the connection problem doesn't appear to be associated with the phones being in use.

A question about the log. Is it normal for it to never show try 2 of 3 and 3 of 3?

Not having delved into the wpa_supplicant source code, I have no idea.

To the extent that association with the router is a multi-packet process, time outs
in the kernel driver could be letting a deadline in the router expire before
association is complete. But there is no evidence of that, we do not know
what the router's internal time limits are, etc, so that is just speculation on
a possible source of error. (Standards for these time limits might be in
an RFC, but you would need to be debugging/tracing the kernel driver
at a fairly low level to find out if the router is compliant with the RFC.)

Radio interference can come from more than simply other radio devices.
Various kinds of electromagnetically "noisy" hardware can generate it.
That is why a channel change sometimes improves things even in an
environment where there are no other devices explicitly using radio.
If the noisy device is generating radio static in a narrow band, moving
your wifi channel can enable your devices to miss it.

You might already have eliminated this by comparing with performance
with cabled devices through the same router, but you should check the
router's power plug, too. It could be loose. (An ancient statistic from
IBM was that 70% of all service calls for mis-behaving IT equipment
turned out to be bad cables or cable connections.)

That ath9k driver is in active development, though, from a brief
skim through the ath9k-devel mailing list. Its performance is likely
to get better rather than worse as the kernel evolves.

Actually, "association denied" is a kernel message, so one would not find
what determines the number of retries and under what conditions it
gives up and loops back to an earlier step in the process in wpa_supplicant's
code, necessarily.

One finds it in /usr/src/linux/net/mac80211/mlme.c. It is above specific
hardware device level, part of the mac80211 wireless framework shared
by multiple drivers.

Well that being the case, when/if the problem crops up again, I will try and disable cfg80211 and mac80211 modules and see if it can connect using just the basic ath9k driver. It also gives me another option to try for getting my Zenbook wireless working. Thank you for the indepth information.

EDIT: Well if I remove mac80211 support, I can't build the ath9k drivers. If I remove cfg80211, I can't build any wireless drivers. That plan just got flushed. Hmmm maybe I'll try building them into the kernel vice as modules.

EDIT2: Moving the mac80211 and cfg80211 into the kernel vice as modules appears to have fixed the problem for the Zenbook. wcg have a virtual double on me.
