Hi,

I am having some troubles connecting to WIFI using with my new laptop (Thinpad T420s, Intel Ultimate-N 6300). wlan0 makes a connection but immediately disconnects. The dmesg output is:

Code:

...
wlan0: associated
wlan0: deauthentication from XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX by local choice (reason=3)


Does anyone know what "reason=3" means or where it is documented? I have been looking at the kernel source but couldn't find anything useful.

thanks,

M

PS: I am using gentoo-sources-2.6.39-r3 and net-wireless/iwl-6000-ucode09.221.4.1 I am not able to connect to any network (both unencrypted and encrypted) using wpa_supplicant or NetworkManager

Thanks.

It turned out it didn't have anything to do with the WIFI driver. I changed the networkmanager useflags from "dhcpcd -dhclient" to "-dhcpcd dhclient" and now it is working fine :)
