wifi drop

Postby drake » 21 Oct 2014 12:18

Hi All,
gotta say I like SolydK ...but...its the only distro I have tried that asks for wifi password every time I boot up. Lol...its bound to be something I am missing or doing wrong...I,m sure. Grateful for any help.
Thanks in anticipation
Drake

G'day Drake and welcome to the forums.

The only time I've ever encountered this problem is when running a 'Live' session from a USB or somesuch. I don't bother with persistent rebooting so this happens every time I shutdown and boot.

I know this is a very basic question but - are you running SolydK from some sort of 'live' medium?

If not, then I'm afraid your problem is beyond my ability to help you. Perhaps you might provide a little more information to help someone else to help you. Posting back to here the output of

Code: Select all

inxi -FNzxx 
should give enough information for someone to start analysing your problem.

Edit= I'm assuming you've already searched the forum for possible solutions and have already tried the solution found here.

Hi drake,

I was also puzzled by the repeated dialogs asking for the wifi password every time after login. After UP 2014.10.15 the NetworkManager seems to have some different quircks than before. I found a solution for my problem, perhaps it can help you too.

Symptoms:
  1. The very first time a new network is seen there is no dialog but only a questionmark icon in systemtray
  2. Once you select your network and enter the password, you are connected but there is no option to save the password
  3. From then on a dialog is presented each time immediately after login whenever that network is available
Solution:
  1. Click left on the wireless icon in the system tray, showing active connection, click the wrench at the upper right corner (connections manager)
  2. Select the wireless network ssid of interest and click the wrench to configure/edit that connection definition
  3. Here it looks like you cannot save because OK is greyed out, but move to the Security tab and specify your password (before, it was empty)
  4. If so desired you might want to check Allow all users on the General tab (before this UP this was required for an automatic connection!)
  5. Hit OK (ungreyed as soon as the password was entered) to save the network definition and logout and back in to examine the results
Regards, Bas.
