I bought a new router this summer (ASUS RT-AC66U), but returned because it was defect and got a new one. This new one i got works on all of my devices except for my desktop, which is my only device that uses 5ghz.

I am running 12.04 (Elementary OS), and my wireless networks card is a TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 N900 (which i bought specifically for good linux support). I have wpa-psk2 and aes on the router, and in nm-connection-editor i have selected 'WPA & WPA2 personal' and someone said that aes is default in NetworkManager. When trying to connect, it takes a very long time, and after a while it asks for my password once again.

Before i updated the router to the latest verion (Which i hoped would solve the problem), 2.4ghz worked actually but not any more. When comparing the 2.4 and 5ghz networks in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ they have the exact same configuration

This is the error message for 2.4ghz from dmesg

wlan0: deauthenticated from 08:60:6e:bd:c5:90 (Reason: 15)

and here's the whole log for dmesg 2.4ghz: http://pastebin.com/9qnWjAT3

And this is 5ghz

[ 3122.594511] wlan0: deauthenticating from 08:60:6e:bd:c5:90 by local choice (reason=3)

And here's the info for my wireless card

The wierdest thing is that it works for all of my other devices which are:

1 android tablet

  • lenovo running 12.04 Elementary OS with a broadcom chip
