Validated the network works fine with cell phone and another computer.

Using Lenovo with "Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak]". Not sure where to go with this. Any ideas?

Yes, the wifi card in the laptop works on every other network I need to connect to.

The router is running LEDE. The radio running the Access Point is on Channel: 11 (2.462 GHz). The problems only occur when encryption is turned on. I think the problem is with wpa_supplicant. I connect to a ton of Access Points with WPA2 just fine. This specific access point is not working. It doesn't take my very simple password. Using nm-applet I can see the password in plain text. It's clearly right.

Router (LEDE)

From the AP side with LEDE, I see this,

Fri Aug 11 02:57:13 2017 daemon.info hostapd: wlan1: STA 08:11:96:3f:05:5c IEEE 802.11: authenticated

Fri Aug 11 02:57:21 2017 daemon.info hostapd: wlan1: STA 08:11:96:3f:05:5c IEEE 802.11: deauthenticated due to local deauth request

wpa_supplicant 2.4 STOCK (Ubuntu 16.10)

From wpa_cli, I'm getting, this

<3>CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-STARTED 
<3>CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS 
<3>WPS-AP-AVAILABLE-AUTH 
<3>SME: Trying to authenticate with 08:02:8e:9b:b1:61 (SSID='EvanCarroll' freq=2462 MHz)

<3>CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED bssid=08:02:8e:9b:b1:61 reason=2

That goes on a bunch and then it ends with

wpa_supplicant 2.6

Built a new version of wpa_supplicant just to test. No change.

  • someone want to critique the question? I can't connect to the network, that's in the logs. What more do you want to know? Getting it 4 seconds after association. – Evan Carroll Aug 11 '17 at 2:09
  • Has it ever worked? What band is your wifi running on? – jesse_b Aug 11 '17 at 2:24
  • @Jesse_b updated with that information. – Evan Carroll Aug 11 '17 at 2:29

    My guess is some driver bug that messes up the "authenticated" state. I had spurious deauthentications some time ago (though they looked differently, so it's probably not the same problem as yours), and they went away when I updated the kernel driver. (And no, I have no idea why people downvote valid questions. The question looks completely fine to me). – dirkt Aug 11 '17 at 5:08

I'm not totally sure this solved it, but it may be worth trying to upgrade your bios. I have since done that it seems to work now. This also fixed a weird issue where I believe the wifi card would stop the system from suspending.

As a side note, something I didn't know at the time I made this post is that intel versions the firmware blob the kernel runs. You may want to make sure that's the relatively new.. Finding out the version of the blob can be a non-minor task

  • As I understand, you claim the problem is in your laptop. It is also possible that the problem may be with your router. I had made an access point from my Linux PC, and it seems the problem was with that. – Yaroslav Nikitenko Feb 25 '20 at 9:43
