- Are you positive you didn’t accidentally use your Ethernet’s MAC address? (Idk if you know but I think the new naming scheme for wireless devices gives them names like wlp3s0, that confused me when I came to arch from Ubuntu)
- Ask your professor or find out yourself whether the network is WPA2, WPA or WEP? If its WPA ask if it uses TKIP or AES or does it support both? That’ll give us a good starting point if its a security problem.
pacman -Q wpa_supplicant, it should tell us that wpa_supplicant is installed, I assume the Cnchi installer installed it when you installed Antergos, I’m assuming you used Cnchi.
- Are you using a GUI Network manager? Which one? If you are you can install dialog:
pacman -S dialogand run
wifi-menuand connect using it, just to rule out a problem with your network manager (which is very unlikely but just in case)
OK your wifi card seems perfect, its even Ubuntu certified so it shouldn’t be the problem.
The dmesg output looks completely normal to me too, (I just double checked to what i get when I successfully connect to my WiFi).
- What did you do to find your MAC address? Any command or anything? Preferably detail what you did so we can be sure you got the right MAC.
- Do you know of anyone else that has been able to connect using any linux distribution?
- When you say you can’t connect, do you mean you don’t have internet? or do you mean the wifi doesn’t connect at all and you don’t have network access?
One more command for diagnosis:
Also see the suggestions in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2557750/internet-connection-mac-address-filtering-enabled.html
They might help if you didn’t already.
What’s your wifi card?
If you don’t know you can run:
lspci | grep -i wireless
And also if you can find out what your friend’s wifi card model and the school wireless router model too.
A good starting point would be searching for issues others have had with the same hardware (if you haven’t already done that)
Also try connecting once and then immediately post the output of
here, it’ll probably help.
