Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Keeps Asking For Password Even Though It Is Correct
Oct 13, 2010
I try to connect to my access point and after a long wait of maybe 30 seconds to a minute it will prompt me to enter my password. I entered it correctly and it still keeps on asking me to enter it. So just then I entered it with the password showing and double checked over it before trying again and it still didn't connect.
I need to have internet on my netbook working by tonight or I will have to go back to windows.
What can I do to make my laptop connect to my access point? Its not a problem with my access point, my desktop running windows, it connects just fine to my wireless.
Here is part of my syslog
Oct 13 15:46:04 mark-eeepc NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0/wireless): connection 'Auto vor' has security,
Oct 13 15:46:04 mark-eeepc NetworkManager: <info> Config: added 'ssid' value 'vor'
Oct 13 15:46:04 mark-eeepc NetworkManager: <info> Config: added 'scan_ssid' value '1'
The system recognizes the signal and asks me to input the network password, which matches;but when asked for the second password, the "nm connection editor", the password doesn't match. Isn't that password the same as the log on?
I'm a novice using Ubuntu 10.1 on an Asus EeePC. For several days, my computer has refused to connect to the office wifi, though it's had no trouble doing this in the past. It recognizes the signal, and the wifi icon keeps indicating that it's in the process of connecting, but the process never completes. Every few minutes I'll be asked to re-enter the password. Eventually it gives up.
I'm not sure if this problem extends to other wifi networks or just the one at my office.
I am using an Asus R2 G32 Wifi Router. The CD's and the manual that comes along with the Router does not support Linux . Now the wifi connection was installed in Windows 6 months back with a password and but it got reset to default somehow. Now i want to set password again. Whenever i try to log in 192.168.1.1 in my browser, and Change the password and select Apply . Nothing happens to the page, as if it is static. No Submit Buttons work in this. Um a bit in mess ryt now as my wifi is vulnerable to any1 ryt now.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on a PackardBell notebook and have just got an Orange Livebox 2 for broadband connection(after years of dial-up as no adsl in my area).I am trying to connect via WiFi to the Livebox to configure, but neither NetworkManager nor Wicd will connect. NM sees the Livebox but simply fails to connect after trying; Wicd says "Bad password".The WPA2 password I have entered is definitely correct, and I have connected without any problem from an AcerOne under Linpus.I have also tried to connect using Wicd and an ethernet cable, and this doesn't connect either, returning "Connection Failed: Unable to Get IP Address"
When I need to type in the password to get on a wifi network, the "connect" button is grayed out and unclickable until I've typed in 8 characters for the password, making it impossible to connect to networks with shorter passwords. I'm not sure if this problem is unique to 10.10 or not, I've been using linux for a couple years now and I've never tried to connect to a network with such a short password before until last weekend, after my friend figured out how to change his password from the one his ISP set for him.
I'm running Xubuntu 10.10 on an IBM T42 laptop, here's the relevant hardware from the lspci command, 02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EP Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Mobile) (rev 03) 02:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)
The problem: when kpackagekit would prompt me to update packages, it would ask for my password. I would enter it, and the dialog would reject it with the message "incorrect password, please try again". Over and over. The password WAS correct -- it worked in Synaptic and on the command line using sudo, and obviously it also worked for logging in.
I suddenly had a hunch that kpackagekit might not be the culprit, and that authentication was being done by a different program -- and lo and behold, the dialog actually said policykit up there...
So, searching for policykit problems out there, I ended up seeing someone reinstalling theirs for their problem (which happened to be different from mine). The code to do that, in the command line:
Code: sudo apt-get install --reinstall policykit
After that, entering the password after kpackagekit prompts me to has worked fine and the updates happen as nature intended.
just installed fedora 15 on my dell inspiron mini 10. I used the livecd to install it to the harddrive with the wizard. I need to use the root account to get the yum to install the wifi drivers and such. i set the root password as "root01" the first time. it didnt work so i figured maybe i made a mistake. so i reinstalled it making sure i used "root01". it still doesnt work. anybody had this problem or heard of this problem before? i am under the impression that the passwd file could be recovered by using Grub to load it under a singleuser setting. however grub wasnt installed
After updating my system yesterday my laptop will no longer connect to my wifi connection, in fact the network manager doesn't appear on the screen. I cant access super user even with the correct password. Some programs fail to load e.g. hardware drivers.I'm online now using my ethernet cable. I cant update grub due to errors in etc/grub.d/README.I'm logged in as root now instead of my own user account.
I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction. I just did an install and the os is up and running. During install, I set a root password and also set up a regular user account. The only option at login is the regular user acct. Needless to say, the os asks me to provide the root pw for just about everything I need to do.get an authentication failure. (I assume that this is the same as permission). I can find plenty of info on how to restrict access but nothing relevant to my problem. Just to rule out an install problem, I installed the os a 2nd time. I am very sure I have my passwords correct. One other thing to note is that on the 1st install, I used a different pw for root and regular user. On the 2nd, just to keep is as simple as possibl I used the same pw for root and reg user account. I am new to debian, but the distro that I have been using (slackware)
So on one of the Linux systems here (2.6 kernel if it matters), there's some weirdness regarding trying to ssh into the system. Basically, if you give it the wrong password on the first ssh attempt, it will give you two more attempts, but even if you give it the correct password, it still won't let you in on those subsequent attempts. (If you give the correct password on the first attempt, it will let you in.)
Being in a text console (VT, that is, the screen with 25 x80 chars), say tty1, and just after booting linux, I logged in as usual,typing my password.What happened then astonished me. In Slackware distros, a small quotation from some book is written on screen just after typing the correct password. Well, after typing my password, I could see it split into two halves instead of the quotation.
I can't seem to get my wifi connection going on my laptop. The wired connection works fine, and the wifi seems to detect networks, but upon trying to connect I get "Bad password". Network at this location uses WPA2.
Upon lspci | grp "Network" I get
Code: 02:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe and on lshw -C network I get; Code: *-network description: Wireless interface
I'm running eeebuntu on a Toshiba Satellite R10, I installed the Netbook Remix Package which was apparently a horrible idea. I cant click properly. I tried to open synaptic package manager to uninstall it but it tells me my password is wrong, which i know it is not. Is there anyway to fix this, i can open terminal.
I could change and manipulate all the bios features before I put an administrator password on the bios. Now that I have put a password on the bios, even when I log-in with the correct password 90% of the motherboard settings are locked and un-changeable.
One of my servers is displaying the error as login incorrect even after giving the correct password. Once I restarted the Virtual Machine and after that it is accepting the same password to login. I am not able to find out the problem, why the server is not able to validate the password until the virtual machine gets rebooted.
I cannot sudo nor log into a second ssh session on my Ubuntu 10.10 server edition headless setup. Entering an incorrect password works as expected but the correct password gives errors, and on the second attempt a segfault. I recently changed my password as the old one was about to expire, that was 3 days ago, I can't find evidence that I have sudo'ed or logged in a second session since, I have been logged into it via ssh throughout all of it and I am still currently logged in. What should I do to correct this problem? I'm worried that by turning it off I will lose all access. Is the only option using a live cd to change the password?
My laptop has an internal wireless device and a button to turn it on/off, but since it has bad reception I use an external USB wireless adapter.The problem is that if I turn the internal wireless device off using the button, it also turns the USB wireless adapter off.Is there anyway to use the killswitch (the button) only for the internal wireless device?This only started to happen in Ubuntu 10.04.
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

I have a pc which has 2 network cards, 1 wifi and 1 ethernet card.
I'm using wifi card to connect to wifi network (internet) and i'm planing to share this wifi/internet connection via ethernet to wireless router (siemens sx763) so i can have internet on my other devices, e.g. mobile phone, laptop.
I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
I have 2 connections, wlan and wired, and I'd want to have a few websites (in my browser) to connect through the wireless connection while other go through the wired rj45 connection. s it possible? (without unplugging the rj45 cable...)
the only error message I can find comes from "dmesg|tail"all it shows is "no IPv6 router"any body know what is going on here or where where to look for more clues the next time I get around public wifi Oh the windoze washers and apple polishers don't seem to have any problems at all
I'm setting up a shared laptop. When I connect the laptop to a wifi network, network-manger remember the password without asking the user if it should.Our wifi network is WPA2 enterprise protected, so we all have our unique personal username/password.I didn't find how to configure network-manager to not remember wifi passwords.
