I'm having a strange Wi-Fi issue in Lubuntu (live USB).
It can see my Wi-Fi network, but after I enter the password and click connect, it tries for about 30 seconds and ends with the message I'm disconnected.
My network is using WPA2 and works with all of my other devices. After reading through some posts here I tried:
sudo leafpad /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
I added the line:
After this I restarted the service with:
sudo service network-manager restart
I still couldn't get connected. To test, I set up a Wi-Fi hotspot on my phone and it connected flawlessly. The only differences I can see are that my home Wi-Fi is using a 20 character ASCII password and the hotspot is using 12 characters.
My next step will be to change the Wi-Fi password on my router once everyone is done using it to rule out if the issue is actually the password length or some other problem.
In the meantime I'd like to know if there is a restriction in Network-Manager in regards to password length? If so, is there a way around this?
