    Default Wireless Connection Problems (Since upgrade from 12.x to 13.1)

    Since upgrading to SuSE 13.1 everytime I attempt to connect to my wireless
    network from the Gnome desktop I get asked for the wireles authentication
    key (good) but the connection never succeeeds (bad). I should be grateful
    to anyone who can help me solve this problem. Included below is someput
    from dmesg, wpa_supplicant.log, /var/log/NetworkManager and hwinfo.
    Please let me know if there is any further information required to help me.

    After each attempt I get the following message from dmesg.

    Default Re: Wireless Connection Problems (Since upgrade from 12.x to 13.1)

    Some further info... if anyone use it to get me further with solving this problem...

    mahler:~ # iwconfig
    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    lo no wireless extensions.

    I am trying to connect to ESSID:"PlusnetWireless" in the iwlist scan below...
    A Suse12 machine is still using the same network without any problems.

    Your device uses ath5k as its driver and it requires file
    /lib/firmware/ar5523.bin. If you have installed the package "kernel-firmware",
    then that file should be there, but you should check that the file exists.

    Have you checked the output of dmesg? That usually gives some explanation of
    what is wrong when the driver is loaded, but does not work.

    Default Re: Wireless Connection Problems (Since upgrade from 12.x to 13.1)

    Hello,

    I have a similar problem -- no WLAN since upgrading yesterday from 12.3 to 13.1.

    I do have wired connection, both via "network manager" and via "traditional".

    At first "network manager" did not work at all. After upgrading the kernel to latest 3.13 (following a tip) I now have wired connection, and can also sign into the WLAN (i.e. router) and get an IP address.

    Despite these positive signs, there is no actual transmission on the WLAN and cannot connect to web sites.

    Here are the networkmanager details:

    Fist, some procedural matters. It is not recommended that you pile onto an
    existing thread. Even if your problem is the same as that of the thread started,
    it gets complicated to give advice. For example, you have made a connection, but
    the other person had not.

    Secondly, please place computer code inside code tags, which are found in the
    advanced settings. That way any formatting is preserved. Notice how your posting
    is strung out vertically. Even worse, some character sequences might be
    converted into smileys. In addition, always include the line with the actual
    command and the following prompt. That way we can see typos, and if you ran the
    command as root, or as a general user.

    In the second sticky in this Wireless Forum, there is a section called Testing.
    Please do the ping tests that it suggests and report the results back.

    Dear lwfinger,

    I stand corrected re forum form and etiquette. Indeed my post is a mess.

    Since posting this reply I found at least one other terrible problem with 13.1. To me this release seems quite -- how to say -- redmondesque. So I am now safely back to 12.3. Will post my criticism in a new topic.

    Thanks,

    AY

    I understand your frustration. On the other hand, I have no problems with 13.1.
    Perhaps the difference is that I test a new release once the MS1 version is
    released, and complain when something is not working. At that point, it is only
    employed in a virtual machine, but I generally switch to use the new version for
    daily work in my main machine by the MS5 release. That way I can be certain that
    it does what I want.

    Your device uses ath5k as its driver and it requires file
    /lib/firmware/ar5523.bin. If you have installed the package "kernel-firmware",
    then that file should be there, but you should check that the file exists.

    Have you checked the output of dmesg? That usually gives some explanation of
    what is wrong when the driver is loaded, but does not work.

    • The file /lib/firmware/ar5523.bin is there and kernel-firmware is too.



    • The output of dmesg is in my original post and this is typical 'cycle'
    • Does anyone of a theory as to why it should suddenly be deauthenticating?

    Reason 3 means that your station wanted to disconnect. There is no indication as
    to why this was the case.
