Your setup looks very complicated. Guess you're having net.wlp0s29f7u1 in a runlevel? You can check your runlevels with
Quote:
$ rc-config show all
and
Quote:
$ rc-config list

And for testing if your setup could be simplified you could temporarily remove net.wlp0s29f7u1 from the runlevels and put dhcpcd instead
Quote:
# /etc/init.d/net.wlp0s29f7u1 stop
# rc-update del net.wlp0s29f7u1
# /etc/init.d/dhcpcd start
# rc-update add dhcpcd default
After reboot, it should work out of the box. If so, you could cleanup from netifrc. If not you still could return to net.wlp0s29f7u1.


I have done it, ant it's working :),
1 please let me know how can I optimize the configuration of net file and wpa_supplicant. Should I change/remove any line?
2. What should I do to cleanup from netifric?
3. If I run rc-config show all, I can still see net.wlp0s29f7u1 but without any tag as boot or default is this ok?

Thanks so much.

See 2. And, in case you are going to use wpa_supplicant you'd better use "GROUP=wheel".

Did you mean $ rc-config list?
After cleanup, it should no longer have any net.* service listed. It should show dhcpcd in default and wpa_supplicant not assigned.
Quote:
$ rc-config list | grep 'dhcpcd\|net\.\|wpa_supplicant'
dhcpcd default
wpa_supplicant

I have follow all the steps and it is still working :). Rc-config only shows dhcpcd as default and wpa_applicant not assignet.
Can I delete wpa_applicant.conf? How does the system know that should use my ssid if I remove that file?
Sorry for my ignorance :oops:

No, that one's needed and very important. Only net.* script crap to be deleted. and netifrc to be unmerged.

Ok I see, I have added GROUP=wheel, and I have created an user out of wheel group, but still have internet connection, maybe is a stupid question, but what is the purpose of add GROUP=wheel then?

Thanks again.

Could you recommend me some guide to understand all these things?

There are lots of information. First of all do
Quote:
$ groups
Then read
Quote:
$ man 1 groups
$ man 8 wpa_supplicant
$ man 5 wpa_supplicant.conf

Thank you so much, regarding what you say about adding GROUP=wheel, I think is the same as my line ctrl_interface_group=0 in my wpa_supplicant.conf, isn't it?
