Wi-Fi keeps to request authentication - can't connect to internet

Hello guys,

I'm using Manjaro and as I said in the title the system keeps asking me the password to log in to WI-FI without connecting at it. With Hotspot mobile phone I have no problem and also no problem with WI-FI and manjaro in the other computer I am using right now. I've already tried to reboot.
What do you think ?

:slightly_smiling_face: @fenerevar, are you using KDE by any chance?

Hello, I am using Xfce4!

:slightly_smiling_face: @fenerevar, I hope this solution works for you:

Manjaro Xfce WiFi Not Working

Hello thank you for the link, I've tried but password was already in the box Security WI-FI, I've tried to type it again but nothing changed and prompt is again here

Maybe it is a problem of the application since there is a loop of request authentication whetever I choose "exit" or "connect", last one without success

:neutral_face: Oh, I am truly sorry that it didn't work.

Hopefully someone else will help you rectify things in a timely manner.

Do not give up hope.


Thanks I've really appreciated your help :slight_smile:

The best way to get help is to start by posting your system information. You can get it by typing

inxi -Fxzc0

in a terminal.

I've seen the same problem with wifi when there was an issue with the kernel. I'd suggest trying a different kernel, either an older LTS or a newer kernel series if you have a brand new system. It is tempting to always use the newest available kernel series, but if you have older hardware, the newest series might not be the best choice!

If changing kernels doesn't help, one of the wifi experts might have some ideas about trouble shooting your wifi connectivity.

you can try this go to network manager then right click on you intended connection select settings when you connection comes up click the gear symbol and click ipv6 tab
selcet disable
try to connect again.
if that does not work , make sure that b43 and ssb are blacklisted if they are installed.

[Edit - SOLVED] I was connecting using the encrypted password option when I had disabled KDE Wallet. After I changed to all users unencrypted password, wi-fi connected automatically on a reboot.

Yes, I have exactly the same problem. Wi-fi keeps asking for authentication. How did you solve it?
