Hi
Background, been using linux since Mandrake 5, was on gentoo from 2004 - 2007 but switched to Ubuntu/MInt as the family moved away from windows so wanted to have the same as them for ease of support etc. Decided to come back to gentoo but having some problems in wireless connections

laptop is an i7 inspiron with Intel Wifi

I used genkernel to try and just get set up and running with a view to moving to a tight kernel in my own time. the wifi card is recognised and starts but wont join any networks. My router supports multiple networks and I have one that has no encryption and it wont even join that one. I've tried NetworkManager and wicd and whilst they can see the networks fine it just wont connect.

to my proper WPA2 network it seems to authenticate then immediately deauths

Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop kernel: wlp8s0: authenticate with 60:03:47:00:21:b9
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop kernel: wlp8s0: send auth to 60:03:47:00:21:b9 (try 1/3)
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop kernel: wlp8s0: authenticated
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop kernel: wlp8s0: associate with 60:03:47:00:21:b9 (try 1/3)

Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop kernel: wlp8s0: associated
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop kernel: wlp8s0: deauthenticating from 60:03:47:00:21:b9 by local choice (Reason: 3=DEAUTH_LEAVING)
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop NetworkManager[2734]: <info> (wlp8s0): supplicant interface state: inactive -> associated
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop NetworkManager[2734]: <warn> Connection disconnected (reason -3)
Jul 15 18:49:41 dadslaptop NetworkManager[2734]: <info> (wlp8s0): supplicant interface state: associated -> disconnected


Anyone got any pointers as to what to do next? I've even tried connecting to the unsecure network by setting AP using iwconfig and IP using ifconfig but it still doesn;t connect

I'm sure I've just done something silly/basic but can't for the life in me think what


/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.config

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
ap_scan=1
network={
ssid="Billion-8800NL"
psk="XXXXXXXXX"
priority=5
}


livecd conf.d # more net

modules="wpa_supplicant"
wpa_supplicant_wlp8s0="-Dwext"
config_wlp8s0="dhcp"

Ask if I've missed anything

TIA

Ian

In case you don't have too complex networking requirements you'd better get rid of the netifrc stuff and go with Network management using DHCPCD.

For wpa_supplican, ajdust the config to the example given in the wiki and connect the AP using wpa_gui. That's much easier than manually editing that config file.

Should not be needed since wpa_supplicant defaults to nl80211.
