Thread: Wireless up and running but can not connect to router in 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Wireless up and running but can not connect to router in 11.4

    Desktop that has wireless built into motherboard worked in 11.3 (as best as I can remember, don't really use it normaly). Trying to connect to my wireless router (only one I have rights to).

    Wireless router is WEP with opensystem authentication, works fine for laptop (Windows)

    Networkmanager scans and displays local networks

    Networkmanager shows:
    acivating
    setting network address
    connection failed

    With WEP you need to use the complete hexadecimal key, not just a pass phrase.
    Is that what you are doing?

    It is a configuration problem. Driver rtl8187 works. Check
    /var/log/NetworkManager for statements about "secrets". Deauthentication reason
    3 is generally due to the AP rejecting the encryption key.
