I've got a problem with my WiFi at a Lenovo Thinkpad 220X, running Manjaro xfce.
In the menu tray it states it is active and it finds my WLAN but I cannot connect to it.
I tried the following to look what is up (or down) and found out the following:
$ mhwd-kernel -li
Currently running: 4.6.2-1-MANJARO (linux46)
$ lspci -k | grep Network
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)
$ inxi -Fx:
Card-2: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] driver: iwlwifi bus-ID: 03:00.0
IF: wlp3s0 state: down mac: 8c:70:5a:28:9d:b4
$ sudo ip link set wlp3s0 up
but the device ist still down without any visible reaction.
$ iw dev wlp3s0 link
so I looked up the wich firmware is installed (maybe it's good to know, even though most of the output is already shown above..):
$ dmesg | grep firmware
[ 3.090937] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: loaded firmware version 184.108.40.206 op_mode iwldvm
I tried following this guide, but it did not really help: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_network_configuration#Check_the_driver_status
Does someone has a clue? Several reboots of the system didn't help either.
Thanks so far for taking time.
