[OPEN] Unable to connect to Wifi

Post by FreshDatagram »

Did a pacman -Syu yesterday and rebooted no issues.
Today i Login and i have no lxqt network widget.
Sudo wpa_cli

-could not connect to wpa_supplicant

Okay so i Do iwconfig and For some reason i dont have a wlan0

iwconfig gives Me

lo no wireless extensions
enp3s0 no wireless extensions
wlp2s0 IEEE 802.11 ESsID:off/any
So wlp2s0 is my wlan0 i looking for I assuming.

Can somebody please assist me in troubleshooting and reconnecting to my wifi Thanks in advance

Edit: After Some RTFM and More RTFM and more....
I tried to ifconfig wlp2s0 up
Operation not possible due to rf-kill
Ok so i just sudo rfkill unblock wifi and it connected.

Dont know what caused it to be blocked but i still dont have My widget on the panel. I assuming whatever broke the widget is what blocked the interface in rfkill.

that may be the case

best to see on bug site of lxdm if something like that has been reported
