Fedora Networking :: Wpa_gui Can't Connect To Wpa_supplicant

Apr 20, 2010

When I run wpa_gui I get a "Failed to open control connection to wpa_supplicant." message and an endless stream of "PING failed - trying to reconnect". I'm sure wpa_supplicant service is running, it also seems to be working correctly (program logs show activity when I connect to a wpa secured network via gnome network manager).

The location that ctrl_interface (in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf) points to (/var/run/wpa_supplicant) is an empty folder. I'm able to connect to a simple WPA network at home, but the one at my university needs special configuration and I couldn't get it to work by editing the .conf file. That's why I need the gui. My network card is Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter, the driver is ath9k.

Ubuntu Networking :: NM Connects - No Icon / Choice Of Wireless - Error Could Not Connect To Wpa_supplicant

Sep 15, 2010

First- clean installation of Ubuntu 10.04, with default network manager installed, I had a taskbar icon, and it could see the available wireless networks, could not connect to them, even the ones with no security. Purged all network manager files suggested in various threads here, Installed wicd- it could see all available networks, could connect to unsecured networks, but not to my own secured network. Password was correct in the wicd/configurations file. Removed wicd, and reinstalled network manager from synaptic. I have to network manager applet. When I try to add it to the notification area with alt-f2, applet-nm, I get a brief flash of something in the notification area, but no applet.

System=>Preferences=>network connections shows no wireless connections, but I'm obviously connected to something (probably my neighbors unsecured network) since I"m reaching this webpage. I tried to run sudo wpa_cli from the terminal to see what network the computer is connected to, and it gives me this error:

Could not connect to wpa_supplicant - re-trying
wpa supplicant is installed according to synaptic
Various troubleshooting output:

Fedora Networking :: F14: No Connection With Wpa_supplicant

Nov 23, 2010

I am trying to get a wlan connection using my new Wlan-Stick. It has a Atheros ar9271 chipset.


Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0cf3:1006 Atheros Communications, Inc. TP-Link TL-WN422G v2 802.11g [Atheros AR9271]

Modules ath9k_htc and ath9k_htc_common are loaded. I can scan for network using iwlist or airodump and get the whole lists of networks. I've copied the config file I use with wpa_supplicant from a working system:




But I am not able to successfully connect:


[vortexbox.localdomain ~]# wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c wpa.test.conf -Dwext
ioctl[SIOCGIWSCAN]: Resource temporarily unavailable
ioctl[SIOCSIWSCAN]: Device or resource busy


the "pre-shared key may be incorrect" I have rechecked the key twice and it is correct (actually it cannot be wrong because they file was copied from a working system). I have also tried to connect to a WEP encrypted network using iwconfig without success. I get no error when connecting but iwconfig tells me "Access Point: Not-Associated".Because of the "Device or resource busy" I tried a "lsof | grep -i wlan" but there are no results.

Fedora Networking :: Does NetworkManager Use The Wpa_Supplicant

Feb 20, 2011

if the NetworkManager uses wpa_supplicant? I normally dont use NetworkManager and decided to try it. I started it and tried it out and it works with WEP and WPA! I cant figure out why using the iwconfig command is not working by itself for WEP. WPA working with NetworkManager is just a bonus though.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wpa_supplicant Authentication Timed Out?

Sep 20, 2010

for weeks now I have the following problem: I am not able to connect to my wireless home network for most of the time. I am using Ubuntu 10.04; an Intel Wifi AGN4965 card and as driver "iwlagn". Maybe the solution lies within these messages (from daemon.log):

Ubuntu Networking :: How To 'see' Dynamically Created Wpa_supplicant.config

Jan 26, 2011

I've got my laptop working with my UNI's rather complex wifi setup.

I need to get access to my wpa_supplicant file so i can use it with my nook and a few other devices that i need to get wifi access.

Network manager, i know, does all the wpa stuff dynamically and through scripts, so is there any way that i can get network manager to generate my wpa_supplicant config?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Disable Wpa_supplicant In RHEL 6?

Mar 30, 2011

I'm working on a RHEL 6 base image for virtualization and I'm trying to pare down the things that we don't need. Considering none of the virtual servers will have wireless networking, I figured it'd be good to kill that wpa_supplicant process. even with the wpa_supplicant service off, NetworkManager seems to start it right back up. There isn't any wireless devices configured, so I don't know why it does this. I can't even kill the process, it starts back up immediately. Is there something in either the Network Manager or wpa_supplicant config files that would disable it permanently?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wpa_supplicant Loops Between GROUP_HANDSHAKE And COMPLETED: Intel Wifi 5100 & Belkin?

Nov 26, 2010

EDIT 6 Dec: More detailed log from wpa_supplicant I'm using Ubuntu Studio 10.10 x64. I want to get wireless networking going manually. My wireless networking works successfully in Windows 7 x64. I can get it working successfully without encryption but when I try and use WPA-PSK, wpa_supplicant gets stuck in a loop between GROUP_HANDSHAKE and COMPLETED, as shown in the log below.

I've been working mostly off the instructions in this post: [URL]... My laptop is a Dell Studio 1537. It has an Intel Wifi 5100. I'm connecting to a F5D7633-4 router running F5D7633-4Av1_UK_1.00.010 firmware, which is the latest version of the firmware I can find. When I set up WPA, it uses encryption technique TPIK. The other generic information is

$ iwconfig wlan0 up

Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd Wpa_supplicant "bad Password" Problem And Workaround?

Jan 25, 2011

I have a "bad password" reply using wicd 1.7.0 with WPA and a preshared key within Ubuntu 10.10, i.e., I am unable to make automatic/repeatable wireless connections using wicd without a workaround.

I believe this may be a problem interaction between wicd and the way wpa_supllicant is passing the (preshared) key to the network authority (the router). In my case, I use a Linksys WRT54GL running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) std - build 13064 OpenSource firmware, configured as an Access Point in Mixed mode (b/g).

I have no problem authenticating WPA Personal TKIP or AES from Windows or Mac OS X clients with a variety of wireless adapters (Linksys, D-Link, Lucent, Airport (Mac)) (No intervention is required to produce the secure connections).

With wicd 1.7.0 and wpasupplicant 0.6.10-2 (wext as wpa_supplicant driver selected in wicd by default) on Linux 2.6.35.-24-generic (Ubuntu "Maverick Meerkat") and a Lucent Orinoco Gold 802.11b wireless adapter I am able to connect to the network initialy (one time) without the "bad password" error.

After the initial successful connection, reconnection is not possible (the "bad password" error) ***unless the wireless security settings on the router are re-applied. Once reapplied/resaved, a subsequent attempt to create a wireless connection from the Linux client will succeed without any changes having been made on the client side.

The psk data being sent to the router (with respect to the Wireless security settings) is being cached in such a way the connection is initially possible but defeats subsequent attempts at connection. Perhaps the passkey is cached/stored on the client side (after it is used to make the first connection) in such a way that it will be sent incorrectly upon subequent attempts at connection? Of course, I'm simply guessing, here ... it is by luck that I found the workaround to establish this wireless connection.

BTW, FYI, I was unable to use the Gnome Network-Manager to establish any wireless connections at all. Thus, Network-Manager was uninstalled (sudo apt-get purge network-manager) during the installation of wicd (Ubuntu Software centre). wpa_supplicant was re-installed (Synaptic) after wicd was installed.

Fedora Networking :: Networking - Connect To The Internet Using BSNL Broadband Connection

Mar 6, 2010

I have installed fedora 12 recently. after installation i tried to connect to the internet using BSNL broadband connection. I filled in the details such as IP, Netmask, Gateway and even DNS servers. In the services also I ensured that the network manager services is on. However even though my computer cannot connect to the internet. I then tried the ping test of the modem from the address and found that the ping test is successful. Then i tried the network administrator and there I noticed something unusual.

There are two options in the devices eth0 and eth1 thats ok but the unusual; thing is that the Activate (green button), Deactivate (red button) and even the delete buttons are in the background and I cannot select them. Isthis the problem for the network connectivity.

I just upgrade my Fedora 14 to Fedora 15 RC1.I found the critical issue for me that Juniper Network connect(SSL VPN) didn't work for me again.I wonder if the network interface name changed impact this, but I am not sure about it as I didn't see any obviously error.I can connect the VPN auth page with my username and password after I switch my Java plugin to Sun JRE( I use google Chrome).As the Java VPN applet started, it appeared for a while and shutdown again. I think the VPN auth has been passed at that time, the problem might about creating the VPN Tunnel.

Debian :: Using Static IPs With Wpa_supplicant?

Aug 22, 2009

Debian doesn't seem to handle the association between wpa_supplicant.conf records, and /etc/network/interfaces. This is in wpa_supplicant.conf:




What's happening is there are two gray circles as the wifi attempts to connect. The first one turns green, but it never completes the next step. The syslog shows that it's waiting for the (nonexistent) DHCP server to respond. If I turn on DHCP, the connection completes, but the routing is messed up (because at that point it actually tries to use the static IP from /etc/network/interfaces). So it seems to associate eventually, but it's way too late. I need it to associate soon enough to know not to attempt DHCPDISCOVER.

Fedora Networking :: 12 Cannot Connect Using WPA?

Jan 18, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12. My wireless card in the laptop works, and can "see" available networks. At system startup it pops a window for me to enter a security key, but I can only choose:

WEP 40/128
WEP 128 Passphrase
Dynamic WEP

My router is set up to use WPA-Personal with AES, and works just fine with various Windows and Mac computers.

I ran yum install NetworkManager and same for wpa-supplicant. Both were updated to most recent version, but I still cannot enter a WPA security key.
