I can't get the wireless to work on my laptop. I've tried on 2 different network with simple passwords in case there was weird encryption issue but still no luck. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

module seems loaded

emmanuel300 ... that may be a typo but 'ssid' doesn't match 'SSID'. Otheriwise I would check dmesg for "firmware" (you should see firmware loading for wl, if not then you may be missing needed firmware and so need to install sys-kernel/linux-firmware).

That is just a typo, my bad.

I checked dmesg but didn't see any errors related to the firmware not loading properly. I saw some scan errors which I will post later (away from the laptop atm). I got it to work a couple of times but as soon as I restarted wpa_supplicant it broke again. Here it magically worked

This is pretty much where I'm stuck. I'm considering just getting a wireless usb card to circumvent this issue. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.

emmanuel300 ...

what kernel is this? Please provide (via pastebin) your .config.

Please try adding 'eapol_version=1' to wpa_supplicant conf.

Documentation/networking/ip-sysctl.txt shows this in 4.9.x, I don't have this with 3.12.68. I would suspect that whatever triggers it in nl80211 is probably due to something enabled in your kernel. You're probably not going to need such features (ie, IP_MULTICAST) and so it's probably easily fixed by disabling them ... when I see your .config I'll have a better idea ITR.

Also, I'm not sure about the status of this patch, but if you're running a very recent kernel then if may have been applied since submission. Not sure it's related, maybe, whatever the case these features are targeting those running AP's and not 'stations' (clients).

khay, I have the following set aleardy
eapol_version=1

Here's the .config file.
http://pastebin.com/ZLxTumHw

uname -a
Linux 4.4.39-gentoo #5 SMP Thu Jan 5 16:31:32 EST 2017 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710HQ CPU @ 2.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


I have multicast enabled but def not using so I'm going to disable and see if that fixes it. Thanks!

emmanuel300 ... not in the wpa_supplicant you provided above ;) Anyhow, try setting to eapol_version=2

You should also set:

CONFIG_IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER=n
CONFIG_IP_ROUTE_MULTIPATH=n
CONFIG_IP_ROUTE_VERBOSE=n
CONFIG_IP_PNP=n
CONFIG_NET_IPIP=n
CONFIG_INET_TUNNEL=n

It's working fine now. I had wpa_supplicant set to start by default and that seems to have been the root cause of this issue. So the times when it inexplicably worked was because I would stop the service thus getting rid of that pid and would also remove /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlp59s0. But deleting this file didn't do much. As long as I don't have another process already running, the interface is able to start and get an IP. Currently, I only have wlp59s0 set to start by default instead of both the interface and wpa service. Thanks Khay for your help!

emmanuel300 ... ah, yes, that often catches the unwary, net.<interface> starts wpa_supplicant independently when conf.d/net contains modules_<interface>="wpa_supplicant", and so wpa_supplicant shouldn't be in the runlevel.
