Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd WiFi Connection Fails / Bad Password Wpa2

Nov 27, 2010

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"

Debian Configuration :: 8.0 With GNOME 32bit - WiFi Connection With WPA2

Apr 12, 2016

I'm using Debian 8 with GNOME 32bit. I installed a driver with ndiswrapper for my old D-Link DWL-G650M.

If i using the default network manager to connect with a Free wifi the connection works fine. But if the wifi have the password the connection doesn't work.

I. using my phone Android to create the Router-Wifi like this:

SSID: AndroidAP5
Password: BillyBob
Encryption(the one allowed): WPA2 PSK

With network manager gnome is impossible to connect. I changed in setting the password type with WPA2 but the system doesn't connect.

I tried to connect manually and i updated the file /etc/network/interfaces as the follow:

Code: Select allauto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-driver wext
wpa-ssid AndroidAP5
wpa-ap-scan 1
wpa-proto RSN
wpa-pairwise CCMP
wpa-group CCMP
wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
wpa-psk 18[...]

After this I tried to execute the follow command :

Code: Select all/etc/init.d/networking restart

And the system returns:

Code: Select all[  ok  ] Restarting networking (via systemctl): networking.service

but nothing else happens. The internet connection doesn't work. The Android phone not detect PC connection IN.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager - Wireless Connection - Dell Laptop Error Wicd States "Wrong Password" Which Is Not True

Jun 11, 2010

These problems just started the last couple of days but I have been using Lucid 10.04 for a month now. My wireless Signal varies in strength wildly. I sitting at home, not 20 feet from my router. I never had these problems before Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I am running both Network Manager and Wicd.

1. Wicd states "Wrong Password" which is not true.
2. Dropping off-line for no reason, sometimes 3 or 4 times a minute and sometimes it works fine for hours.
3. Firefox 3.6.3 Automatically Checking "Work Offline"!?


I have the Proper Wireless Drivers. I have not changed my wireless settings, channel or WPA for 8 months now so I know thats not it.

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi With Wpa2 Encryption Doesn't Connect On Startup

Dec 27, 2010

I have xbmc, a media center shell that runs on ubuntu. I am trying to set up a laptop to run it and be a full time media center. so far it works great, I installed xbmc live, but the only issue is I have a wep2 protected wireless router and the wifi does not connect automatically.

I have it set up and am using wpa_supplicant once those commands are run the wifi works great.I am a novice in linux in general, and can not seem to get this to work on startup, can anyone point me in the right direction on this? I haven't been able to find the xbmc start up script if one exists, I figured adding those lines to it might work,does this sound like a reasonable approach? if anyone knows where that is and how it is defined to be launched on start-up i would appreciate it(I guess this is getting into the general Linux knowledge but still good info)

Ubuntu Networking :: Wpa2-aes - Can't Get A Stable Connection

May 16, 2010

Does anyone have a way to use this type of encryption? I have read many posts but have not gotten a solution yet. I am trying to get this to work at a friend's house. I know the SSID and the super-long ascii code (with symbols?). gnome nm and wicd have been useless. I have been connecting to my school's wpa2 using wpa_supplicant + dhclient directly, so I tried adding it in there:

psk="horribly long thing"

What happens is a string of connects and then immediate disconnects when runnign wpa_supplicant. It says "CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - disconnect event - remove keys" then starts all over. Can't get a stable connection but I must be close?

Ubuntu Networking :: WPA2 Static IP Gives The Right IP But NO Internet Connection

Oct 16, 2010

I don't know where to put this, or even what I'm looking for.

I've tried for 6 hours today to get my WPA2 wireless to work as a static IP on my laptop to no avail.

Basically I put things in correctly (at least according to that thread) but I get no interent. When I restart I get the correct IP address but no internet pages will load.

The network monitor I have on my panel shows that it is trying to send and receive information, but I can not get my pages to load.

I'm desperately in need of help, but I really don't know how to even ask for it correctly.

But to start here is my interfaces file (one config of about 15 I've tried).

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static


My router is a linksys WRT54GS. My wireless is set up as WPA2-Personal with the "algorithm" as TKIP+AES.

Its like it wants to connect and gives me an IP. But I just don't get any real web data.

I've restarted and tried restarting just the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd & WiFi-radar Fail To Get IP Address

Jan 16, 2011

When trying to connect to a wireless AP, neither wicd or wifi-radar are able to obtain an IP. With wicd, a string of various hex/dec characters flow by, with an eventual error. This happens with both WEP and unencrypted APs (- the hex/dec). With wifi-radar it simply fails, but not every time. NetworkManager connects with zero problems every time; though I prefer to not use NetworkManager, so please spare me of such replies. Someone please tell me why there should be only one wireless manager in Ubuntu that works? I have used wicd since before gutsy gibbon, and it always worked fine until the last two versions, Lucid, and Karmic. What is occurring in Ubuntu which over time breaks these excellent applications? I have tried this with four different wireless cards, and all suffer either identical or similar issues. Those chipsets are Broadcom, two RealTeks, and an Intel.

I really wish to emphasize that this post is not a request for a lecture on why I should use only NetworkManager, or why I should go find another distro. With something like Linux, maybe we could push a little harder, and have maybe say, two, wireless managers that actually work? I would honestly like to see more than two, but one is not enough. It baffles me a bit why new versions of Ubuntu mangle some perfectly good applications, but not others. In IT, surely networking, IP4, WEP, basic wifi technology, etc. has not changed so much that every six months whole new programs should need to be written to connect to a wireless access point. Nor should old ones need much tweaking. What's going on? With such boastings of repositories abundant and brimming with free apps, why does anyone want to make NetworkManager the only app that works?

General :: WPA2 - NetID And Pass - Wireless Network From Wicd And/or Command Line

Sep 23, 2010

The university I go to uses a WPA2 wireless network that requires a netID and password to connect too. I installed wicd but I can't seem to connect to this network, is there a way to add this functionality to wicd, and if so, how do I do that (links to a how-to or guide would be nice, I've yet to find one).

Also, I spend most of my time on campus in the command line, so I'd like to know if there is a way to use command line utilities to connect to this network (again, a guide or how-to would be nice)

I can get online through my fedora live USB just fine (w/ network manager) but I'd rather get on directly from slackware.

Ubuntu Networking :: Bad Password - Error Message When Trying To Connect To WPA/WPA2 Wireless Network

Jul 5, 2011

I keep getting a "bad password" error message when trying to connect via wpa_supplicant to a wireless network (Apple Time Capsule WPA/WPA2 mixed).

Here's my wpa_supplicant.conf:


And the relevant line in the /etc/network/interfaces file:


The Time Capsule log contains the following error message--


So perhaps the password is somehow getting lost in translation from Ubuntu to the Time Capsule?

Networking :: Inputting WPA Password With Wicd-curses?

Jan 17, 2010

I'm reviving an aging Thinkpad X22 by installing Debian and running only in text mode. I've installed wicd to control the wireless network connections. When I run wicd-curses from the cli, it finds the network and I'm able to obtain an IP address. The wireless ESSID that I'm connecting to is encrypted with WPA. I can't seem to figure out how to input the encryption password so I can connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Install Wicd Without An Internet Connection?

Oct 21, 2010

I installed Enlightenment into my machine and, in the course of the installation, Network Manager was removed. I now have no internet connection. I've searched and tried a couple of possible solutions here but I cannot get them to work. When I try to use a downloaded deb file Gdebi cannot install it. It seems that if I re-install Network Manager I'll lose a lot of my Enlightenment installation. What I'd like to do is install Wicd. I dual boot with Win 7 so all is not lost. I understand that there's a way to istall Wicd from the command line without an internet connection but I cannot figure out how to do it.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wifi Connection Fails After The Recent Update?

Jul 8, 2010

Recently I updated my openSUSE 11.2 and I'm not too sure what all were the recent updates but I suspect networkmanager also got updated. After I restarted my machine, my laptop fails to connect to the wireless access point. I tried both in gnome as well as KDE but the same error. This is the log I found in my /var/log/NetworkManager which I believe should give some pointers.

Jul 8 15:08:42 AshSuse1520 NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0) starting connection 'Buckeye Plaza'
Jul 8 15:08:42 AshSuse1520 NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): device state change: 3 -> 4 (reason 0)
Jul 8 15:08:42 AshSuse1520 NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0) Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled...


I did a search of this error in google and all I got were few results which complained about bugs in some debian distro.

My wireless card works fine and so does the access point I try to connect to since my Ubuntu installation is able to connect fine as well as my windows Xp.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd Does Not Obtain Ip Address On Wired Connection

Feb 13, 2010

Running kubuntu karmic, kernel 2.6.31-19, on Asus EEE PC 1000.

WICD 1.7.0. hangs on "wired connection: obtaining ip address...". I have downgraded to 1.6.2 and 1.5.9, but this did not solve the issue.

WICD does work under other circumstances, e.g. wireless connection. (But at home I don't have wireless, but just the modem and ethernet.)

Same wired connection ethernet connection works flawlessly on laptop running Windows XP SP2.

Fedora Networking :: WPA2 Password Won't "take"

Apr 18, 2009

When I start my laptop, the network manager tries to log on to my home network, apparently fails, and then brings up a screen offering me a space to enter the password for the home WPA2 network it's discovered.

Whether I enter the password when prompted or go into "Network Connections" and edit the password there the system always offers up a seemingly random 64 character string of numbers and letters instead of the true password. What's going on and how do I fix this?

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Wicd "Bad Password" With DWA-125

May 31, 2010

I have followed everything according to the the post by: [URL] I got through everything, was able to install wicd and scan the available networks, however when I connect to my own network with WPA2, it always gives me "Bad Password" when authenticates. I tried also using WPA and WEP, nothing worked. Even when I put the security to none, it connects, but for something reason wasn't connecting to any web sites when browsed using firefox; however the status shows connected and the router shows registered when logged into

I tried uninstall network manager and then restart with wicd, same problem. The wired network is managed without any problem. The adapter works under windows 7 and XP flawlessly. And also wicd ask for password everytime the computer starts to gain control of the network cards. is there any way to cancel that?

Fedora :: Fix For WPA2 TKIP Repeated Asking For Password?

Sep 24, 2009

I just wanted to get this out:

I have had this problem (entering the correct password and having Fedora repeatedly ask me for the password again) for a long time (since FC9) and have recently found what I believe to be a solution.

I know, you'll probably think it's extremely simple, but I just wanted to help any newbies to Fedora who might have the same problem as me.


Right click on the Network Manager icon, and select "Edit Connections"

Go to the Wireless tab, and delete the entry for your wireless!Then manually re enter all of the settings.

This worked for me with a WPA2 TKIP connection, but it might work with a WPA2 AES also.
