• Wifi not working on some network


    This problem occurs to me only when I try to connect to some hotspot I noticed 2 different problem ( on different hotspot ):

    • I cannot connect at all ( see dmesg below )
    • I connect but after some random time I get disconnected ( every 10 / 20 min )

    On both situation I was able to correctly connect with my android phone but not with my pc.
    Those problem happens to me also on a different pc and on Ubuntu as well so I think this is probably a bug related to some driver.

    I will be glad if someone can point me out to some solution or related bug report, or share if had similar problem so we can use them to fill a bug ( where ? )

  • I don’t have a solution, but ran into the same problem. (Lenovo X1 Carbon) My (terrible, but it works) solution was to tether the phone to the laptop with a usb caple, and then share the network connection between the two. It’s not a fast connection by any means, but it was better than nothing.

  • @postadelmaga
    Reason 14 says “MIC failure”. That means that the WPA encryption code is failing
    and the packet is corrupt. Not info for you wifi driver ) and AP…

  • Yea may some info about your Wifi-Hardware?

  • do you have bluetooth enabled?
    try to disable bluetooth…
    May it is kernel related, you can also try to use lts kernel

  • @joekamprad I don’t right now (turned off on gnome), but I don’t remember whether it was on or off last time I tried to use that connection. It’s at a coffee shop, so I probably won’t be there for another day. I’ll try with bluetooth on and off, and using the lts kernel. Are there any things that I should collect when I’m there?

  • dmesg | grep  iwlwifi 
    dmesg | grep wlp
    

    searching the web there are a lot of people having problems with this wifi-adapter under Linux… i think the driver and firmware is still under development …
    so new kernel can do problems or solve them ;)

  • @matt
    Try this - echo “options iwlwifi 11n_disable=8” | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
    and reboot and see if the speed&connect is better ?

  • @joekamprad
    From kernel 4.2 -4.6 it work…

  • we have 4.9 actually…
    Here is what archwiki tells about this driver:

  • @joekamprad
    If it not work only one way…long way ) Use backports ))

  • I was without wifi for the last 2 days and finally on a reboot chose “Antergos LTS rollback kernel” which finally allowed me to connect. Afraid to do updates now because this is the 2nd time I’ve lost wifi for a few days and had to roll back to get it back.

  • @Knightr1der
    Read this -> No wireless for Intel Corporation 7260
    May be help … Or install downgrade from AUR
    sudo downgrade linux, then select witch kernel you wont install )

    PS. For users of these devices who have problems when WiFi and Bluetooth are running concurrently, suggest to disable BT Coex by loading iwlwifi with bt_coex_active=0 as a module parameter.

    i3 GNOME

  • @joekamprad Thanks for the suggestions - I had tried it on 4.8.13, with bluetooth on/off and both using LTS and regular kernal, no luck. Hopefully a kernel update will fix this eventually.

  • @SpoliatoR Sadly that didn’t get anywhere either - I’ll give an old kernel a try just for kicks.
