    Exclamation Fresh installation of Tumbleweed NET 20190402 cannot connect to WiFi

    Even though the installation itself went thru just fine using a same USB wireless adapter (and same wireless source), right after the first reboot, the system cannot connect to WiFi, not even once.

    This exact same issue has happened twice, first time it was 2 weeks ago, I couldn't solve the issue. So I formatted the partition, and did clean installation 2 days ago with the same result.

    I have gone thru quite a few threads before posting this, especially this thread from openSUSE forum:

    Code:
    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/532966-Strong-wifi-signal-but-cannot-connect
    Code:
    From the opensuse forum thread I have applied following commands but to no avail:
    
    systemctl disable wicked
    systemctl disable wicked.service
    systemctl disable wickedd-auto4.service
    systemctl disable wickedd-dhcp4.service
    systemctl disable wickedd-dhcp6.service
    systemctl disable wickedd-nanny.service
    
    systemctl enable NetworkManager
    systemctl restart NetworkManager

    System info:
    NET installation source was: openSUSE-Tumbleweed-NET-x86_64-Snapshot20190402-Media.iso
    Desktop Environment: MATE
    Wireless source: Hotspot from my personal phone, which has no MAC filtering.
    USB wireless adapter: Model: TP-Link TL WN823N RTL8192EU
    Selected NetworkManager (instead of wicked) during the installation.

    Here are relevant logs from:
    Code:
    (1) journalctl > log.txt

    (3) wpa_supplicant log:

    Also, when I try to connect to WiFi, every time it asks to assign root permission via GUI, citing "system policy". Is this normal?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Note: I have tried to create paste on paste.opensuse.org and susepaste.org but I kept getting 404 error. Attaching screenshots of the errors.





    Few other screens:

    Have you tried using "wicked" (via Yast network settings) for WiFi?

    It is less convenient than NetworkManager. However, the NET installer probably used "wicked". And if it worked during install, you can probably get it to work.

    As for needing root password to connect? I don't use MATE -- well, I have it installed, but I didn't use it to setup WiFi. So I'm guessing. I think it gives you a choice on where to store the network password. One choice was probably to save to a file unencryted. You should use that choice. Any other choice probably gives that root password prompt if the network is set to share with other users.

    Thanks a lot for the reply. Wicked never worked through Tumbleweed 4.3GB full ISO during the installation. I tried every combination to setup wicked in Live-DVD (actually live flash drive) installation setup.

    Hence I couldn't get option to install MATE through installation DVD. So I turned to NET installation to get MATE right from the start (As I did not want to install any other desktop first then install MATE through it).

    Now Tumbleweed NET installation ask you to connect WiFi (or any network) through text-based screens, before the GUI even starts, and I guess that's why I was able to connect to WiFi, and successfully install Tumbleweed with MATE. And that's why I chose "NetworkManager" instead of "wicked" during the installation setup (though apparently this didn't help either).

    Now as you asked, I have tried to use/setup wicked from YaST2. But it still not working.

    I would highly appreciate if someone could point out, what am I missing in either Wicked or NetworkManager setup.

    Here are 9 Wicked setup screens:

    I don't recall any option or prompt to save password encrypted or not or sharing with others, right after the first boot, when I tried to connect to WiFi for the first time.

    Right now, when I try to connect to WiFi, it ask me to give root permission and then sign-in to keyring. Though even after both, it doesn't connect anyway.

    Did you change your Network connection to all Users?

    Try a empty Master Password in the keyring.
    Keyring should also be opened by User, not root.

    Many thanks for the reply. No, I didn't change anything. It's a fresh installation, WiFi never got connected even once.

    Okay so I deleted keyring. Still cannot connect to WiFi through Wicked.

    So switched to NetworkManager from Wicked. Tried different hotspot, this time when I right-click on the network icon, then SSID, there was no window to enter password. But if I right-click on the network icon in system tray, I could edit or create a new connection. I created a new one, but the result was the same. Could not connect to WiFi.

    Did you make the connection to the WiFi via the Network Manager widget on desktop?? You must sign in to the hot spot.This is not automatic and does not use the settings from the install phase

    Since you apparently only installed Mate it is possible you are missing some things since Mate is not a standard desktop for OpenSUSE

    Allowing all users is a good idea just enter the root password when asked. This is a system setting not a user setting so requires elevated permissions.

    First, regarding your screenshots...

    The susepaste and paste.opensuselorg addresses may not be valid, they would be valid only if a paste had already been created at those addresses that has not expired. Instead, if you're creating a new paste, you should use only the TLD of the address (nothing after .org in hte address).

    The System Policy popup requiring your root password is expected and usual, but elevated permissions (root) is required only to make the change, not for the changed setting itself. So, provide your root password the one time, make your change and if your change doesn't itself require elevated permissions, you shouldn't have to provide a root password again for this action.

    I'm guess the "Disconnected" is because you declined to provide root permissions when that was required, so is expected.

    As others have noted, during the install your Wifi connection used Wicked.
    There is ordinarily no need to install Network Manager to use it later, unless something has changed NM is always installed but disabled by default in every installation, after installation if you wish to use NM you have to go into YaST > Network Settings and in the first tab to the left you have to select NM as your preferred connection manager from a dropdown. Of course, after that you will need to click on the NM applet to create your NM connection before you can make a successful connection.

    I don't see that is what you did, so is likely the cause of your problems using NM.

    Additional info about my above post...

    There are two network management systems you can choose from on openSUSE, Wicked (an enhanced version of classical ifup/ifdown) and Network Manager.

    You can choose to use either, but it's important to know that you cannot have both enabled at the same time, when you use one you must also disable the other. This is why you should use YaST to switch between the two so that your change is done correctly. If for instance you try to use use NM in a default, newly installed openSUSE, because Wicked is active and not disabled you will experience conflicts, inconsistency and problems.
