I'm running a headless device that I want to connect to wifi(it's currently on ethernet), so I'm using
nmcli. I scan for connections with the following:
sudo nmcli dev wifi rescan sudo nmcli dev wifi list
and the WiFi network I want is at 95% strength. So, I connect with:
sudo nmcli dev wifi connect "SSID" password "wifipassword"
and I get the following error:
Error: Connection activation failed: (53) The Wi-Fi network could not be found.
and I've tried copying and pasting from
list to ensure I did not mistype the SSID, and it still does not work. It works fine from other devices that use Ubuntu and network-manager, so I know it's not the router.
How can it not find the network when I connect, but find it just fine when scanning, and how do I fix this?
