Preferred DHCP addresses are usually configured on the DHCP server side. You will need to add an entry in your DHCP server's address table for your device's MAC address and assign it to an IP address. DHCP servers can vary. If this is a small network your DHCP server may be your router or gateway. The address can fall in the range of DHCP addresses but it ...

Probably what is happening here is that some other process owns the wireless chip inside your computer, so NetworkManager isn't allowed to do anything. In this case, that process would be wpa_supplicant or whatever is calling wpa_supplicant (and acting on the information in /etc/network/interfaces). Instead of randomly installing things, you should stop and ...

Braiam suggested in the comments that if wpa_supplicant@wlan0 doesn't exist, I may need to create it myself, and also pointed me to a page in the Arch Linux wiki describing how to do so. I had to tweak things slightly for Fedora, but the following worked for me: Create a systemd unit, /etc/systemd/system/network-wireless@.service: [Unit] ...

Just put your command in /etc/rc.local. Make sure it's on a single line. sudo wpa_supplicant -i eth0 -D wired -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/mywired.conf -B I assume that your connection is stable and not dropping. Do comment if your connection drops. I'll make a script. Have to sleep now.

If you want wpa-supplicant to run using that config upon boot, then you should put the command in rc.local. As root, open up /etc/rc.local in a text editor and paste in your command: wpa_supplicant -i eth0 -D wired -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/mywired.conf -B Make sure that Systemd is running rc.local: sudo systemctl enable rc-local and reboot. Should work. ...

You can't. Easiest solution for you would be for your AP to ban the MAC address of your client. That, or just stop trying to connect to every open BSS network out there.

By default, if an interface is listed in /etc/network/interfaces, NetworkManager will be smart and not touch this interface, to avoid both configuration method to interfere with each other. Comment the /etc/network/interfaces definition concerning your wireless device and restart NetworkManager.

Depending on how the authentication is implemented, you may be able to send a HTTP request to gain access. This depends on numerous aspects of the particular implementation though. Keep in mind, these types of authentication are put into place to keep autonomous systems out while allowing only browsers to have access, which is exactly what you are trying ...

I know thats not 'the Anwser', and also a bit late - But its to large for a comment. Maybe it helps... My Configuration was not wrong, it just took to long to connect and caused a timeout, setting explicit values speeded it up and the autentication was finished in time. Try to do so with eapol_flags and eap, try disabling eap_workaround or fast_reauth. ...

You can bring up the wireless interface from the command line to get yourself bootstrapped. Debian Jessie's essential packages have all you need to do this. Let's say the SSID is "example" and its WPA2 pre-shared key is "abcdefg". Create a file wpa_supplicant.conf containing: network={ ssid="example" psk="abcdefg" scan_ssid=1 } Now as root say: # ...
