Good evening my fellow Gentoo users. I just upgraded my kernel and now I cannot connect to my wireless network. Connection via the ethernet port works fine.
Here is the kernel version I have upgraded to.
Code:
#uname -a
Linux LIQUIDMETAL 3.17.7-gentoo #3 SMP Fri Dec 19 13:59:03 PST 2014 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

ifconfig shows that my wireless interface is up. Here is the model of the wifi controller.
Code:
#sudo lspci | grep Network
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak]

I have the intel firmware installed
Code:
#eix iwl1000
[I] sys-firmware/iwl1000-ucode
     Available versions: 
     (0)    39.31.5.1
     (3)    **128.50.3.1
     Installed versions:  39.31.5.1(11:45:59 AM 11/29/2013)
     Homepage:            http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwlwifi
     Description:         Intel (R) Wireless WiFi Link 1000BGN ucode


The laptop have a wifi kill switch but is switch so that the wifi is turned on. For some reason I can connect to the network when I boot with the older kernel (gentoo-sources 3.10.17) but not with this new kernel so I believe the problem lies with me not enabling something in the kernel but I am unsure of what that could be. Can someone please help me with this?

dmesg should tell you if the firmware got loaded like

Here is the relevant output from dmesg

Code:

edit: I just realized I posted output from the older kernel not the newer one that I am having issues with. Here is the correct output. as you can see the firmware is being loaded.

<3 ...

Not much there to show why the connection is failing, you should really provide some wpa_supplicant logs, dmesg (of the auth), and details of the AP your attempting to connect to.

First thing I'd do is disable 'N' on the AP (select 'G only') this way you may get some idea of why the connection is failing (and as I see a lot of issues with N, my guess would be the issue is there).

So, the following would probably help

Code:
# iw dev <interface_name> scan ssid <ap_name>
# dmesg | grep <interface_name>
# modinfo iwlwifi

You can also get wpa_supplicant to debug to a log ...

/etc/conf.d/net
Code:
wpa_supplicant_<interface_name>="-Dnl80211 -d -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log

Attempt to connect then pastebin the log ... '-dd' or '-ddd' for greater level of debug.

best ... khay

<3 ... 1 should be the AP you're attempting to connect to, 2 seems to have been run prior to connection, and 3 won't exist as wicd doesn't use /etc/conf.d/net.

Anyhow, as you're using wicd is CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT enabled? It will be required as wicd doesn't use the new NL80211/CFG80211, but WEXT (the now legacy "wireless extentions").

If by "AP" you are referring to the router that I am trying to connect to then that is what I did. And that output is what I was given.

2) trying this again this is what I got
Code:
#dmesg | grep wlp2s0
[   15.463937] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0 wlp2s0: renamed from wlan0

I think so, in the wicd gui the driver selected is WEXT not NL80211 and there is no option for CFG80211. Although I do believe that the issue is due to something in the kernel as wicd seems to work when I boot to my older kernel but not when I boot to the new kernel.

<3 ... CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT is a kernel option, it provides the WEXT compatibilty layer for NL80211. wicd will require it enabled as it uses (the now legacy) WEXT exclusively.

As for the output above, besides the ESSID being obfusticated there is more than one ESSID, so I can't tell which is the one I should focus on ... and the dmesg doesn't show any authentication, so nothing is happening (wicd probably does nothing as no WEXT is available).

Oh I'm sorry I misunderstood you. Yes CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT is compiled into the kernel.

wicd uses wpa_supplicant

get wpa_supplicant to associate+auth to the AP (aka "your wireless router"), square that away, and then tackle wicd. If wpa_supplicant can't connect, then neither can wicd.

run wpa_supplicant from the command-line, following the instructions listed in the wiki charles17 linked above.

It should spit out meaningful output that will point you/us in the right direction.
dump said output on pastebin, and link away.

I was not able to get wpa_supplicant to connect to my router but I was able to get it to scan nearby wireless networks. Also I see that wicd has a logfile in /var/log/wicd here is the output

According to cach0rr0 wicd depends on a working wpa_supplicant.

wicd uses wpa_supplicant

So I suggest you first make wpa_supplicant working and in the next step care for wicd.
Did you work through the testing section https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wifi#Testing?
Will you please show us your output of
Quote:
# ifconfig -v wlp2s0 up


And, please use http://pastebin.com/ instead of posting such big output as above.

wpa_gui says it is connected but when I try to browse the web the browser says unable to connect. Using wicd everything is fine. So I am confused.

It should show "STATE: COMPLETED" and its IP address like http://i.imgur.com/JzUHWPr.png
Does it?

This is what it looks like for me using wpa_gui

to do this I first run
Code:
#/etc/init.d/wicd stop
since I have wicd in the default runlevel to stop wicd, then I run
Code:
#/etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant start
to start wpa_supplicant, then I run
Code:
#wpa_gui
to start the wpa_supplicant gui.

So it looks http://ibin.co/1nPlE5qlegYO like you didn't receive an IP address.
In most cases re-entering the password aka PSK in wpa_gui might help. If not: Does your AP provide DHCP or are you using static IP address?

I don't think that's a good idea, see the "important" in http://i.imgur.com/Bsu1Tez.png.

That is weird because wicd works just fine (in the older kernel at least)

As you say you were using wicd and wicd works fine, what's your problem then?
Is it [SOLVED]?

The problem is that I can get wicd to work in Gentoo-sources 3.10.17 but not in Gentoo-sources 3.17.7
