[OPEN] Wifi not working....

Post by prajganesh » Sat Jul 21, 2018 11:18 pm

I'm using I3 with arcolinuxd. Everything works fine using Ethernet. When I use wifi-menu, it even scans and shows me all the wifi network. But when I type the password, it says "connection failed. I understand wifi is not the easiest thing to setup but it would be awesome if I can get this to work..

I have Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 wireless network adapter. and the wifi state also says UP. not sure what else I can check..

Have you search online for it.

Your network card is mentioned.

Have you search for your laptop name and arch and your network card name?

Can you give a picture of the networkmanager?? If installed.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
