No WiFi-Connection (v3.2.2 Xfce)

Post#1 by Kulle » 18 Jul 2017, 17:45

I would use Porteus v3.2.2 Xfce
I have configured WiFi, but i can't connect.
I find no way !!
What to do now?
Thanks for the help. [

[connection]
id=Wi-Fi connection 1
uuid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
type=wifi
permissions=user:guest:;
secondaries=

[wifi]
mac-address=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
mac-address-blacklist=
mac-address-randomization=0
mode=infrastructure
seen-bssids=
ssid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

[wifi-security]
group=
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
pairwise=

psk=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

[ipv4]

method=auto

[ipv6]

Note: On the same computer with v3.1 Xfce : No problem!

Does your wifi card/dongle work at all?
Does "iwlist scan" show networks?

also i do not see any specified interface in your file.

[connection]
id=Blablub
uuid=xxxxxxxxx
type=wifi
autoconnect=false
interface-name=wlan0
permissions=
secondaries=

Thanks for the answer.
The Card works! In Version v3.1 no Problems!
But using Version v3.2.2 : Problems

iwlist scan shows nothing!
I find no way to connect!
And now?
I have to continue using V 3.1

Ok, lets start with something simple

open a terminal, su to root and show the outcome of
rfkill list and ifconfig -a

(you have run "iwlist scan" as root, right?)

Just to be sure -- If you right click the network icon in the panel,
there is no checkbox to enable wifi, and if you click "edit connections"
there is no device listed in the dropdown box (wifi tab)?

I assume (i shouldn't do that) that a firmware file is missing.

But first we need to know what card/chipset is used
(may be it could be enough to copy over the firmware files from 3.1 to 3.2)

However,
to find out which card you have, boot the working 3.1 -- identify the card and
which driver is used.
lspci -knn
or
lspci | grep -i intel
lspci | grep -i wireless
lspci | grep -i network


Example
you will get an output like:
0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless....
Note down 0c:00.0 and enter the following command:
lspci -vv -s 0c:00.0

(info about vendor & product code would be:)
lspci -n -s 0c:00.0

if you know which kernel module i used, run
modinfo "the module name"
to find out which firmware is needed.
(or search the dmesg log for hints)

If you have all the info, boot 3.2 and check what is missing.
In case that it is a firmware file, copy it from 3.1
Firmware files are in /lib/firmware

I can not be more specific because i don't know which card/chipset you have.

!! Thank you very much !!
In version 3.2.2 one file "iwlwifi........" was missing.
Now WiFi works.
Shut down version 3.2.2 : Many, many warnings and errors on the screen
Ignore?
