Hello everyone,

My WiFi connection with NetworkManager suddenly broke after I was installing software required by hplip installation tool (not sure if that was the cause but hplip was the last software I was working with before this issue happened). I was also compiling and installing hplip software to troubleshoot my hp setup connections and who knew this may have affected my NetworkManager functionality. :?

I've got plasma KDE and below is my 'emerge --info' :
https://paste.pound-python.org/show/wS2OP4VUGJBubJpG3q1d/

My NetworkManager is installed with 'consolekit' USE flag which is pulled together with wpa_supplicant when NetworkManager is emerged.

Steps I took to troubleshoot the issue:

- completely removed all hplip software I installed (I used 'locate' command to find any occurrence of hplip and removed it everywhere)
- unmerged all packages I installed that were required by 'hplip' setup tool (those were some additional python and network-related packages) I then ran 'emerge --depclean'.
- built and installed new kernel 4.12.8 and booted into it, but the problem persisted
- completely removed and re-installed NetworkManager together with consolekit and wpa_supplicant.

The problem is when I select WiFi connection from NetworkManager connections list, the message first says "configuring interface", then "setting network address", then the wireless icon fades its color and nothing happens, i.e. no internet connection.

This is the 'dmesg' trace when I try to connect to WiFi:

Code:

[ 7639.258916] wlp2s0: Limiting TX power to 27 (30 - 3) dBm as advertised by 02:fc:8d:29:20:c0


One thing I observe, is when I run

Code:

ps -Ao pid,command | grep Network


I see a process with command:
Code:

/sbin/dhclient -d -q -6 -N -sf /usr/libexec/nm-dhcp-helper -pf /run/dhclient6-wlp2s0.pid -lf /var/lib/NetworkManager/dhclient6-a60d8333-d143-4832-9851-0d8c9ca28ac8-wlp2s0.lease -cf /var/lib/NetworkManager/dhclient6-wlp2s0.conf wlp2s0


Appear for a bit, then it disappears.

My 'ifconfig' output is:

Code:

Could somebody please advise on what could be the problem?

Thank you,
Victor.

ADDED: I was able to successfully setup my OfficeJet HP printer following this documentation: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/HPLIP rather than using tools provided by hp manufacturer's website. However, my original problem mentioned with NetworkManager still exists.

The issue got resolved. Apparently, my landlord has re-set the wireless router so the WiFi connection is back. Seems like my work with hplip software was just a coincidence with the connection going down :?
