First of all, I would like to say that I have searched and tried everything suggested and still having this problem. I am unable to connect to any wifi available, I have tried my home wifi and my hotspot but KDE Daemon constantly keeps asking for network authentication. My computer has dual-boot with Windows 10 and I have no problems with the wifi on my Windows. I have unchecked the KDE wallet, restarted the network service nothing helped. I have used Kubuntu for the last 6 and everything was fine the first time it happened. I deleted and reinstalled Network manager and made my WiFi open cus I thought maybe the encryptions were the problem still nothing.

  • Any helpful forum.ubuntuusers.de/post/9129728 here?

  • I'm afraid I don't have a fix, but I've recently started experiencing the same. I've also found I've no problem connecting to unsecured wifi networks, but anything secured makes this happen :\

As per comments on the original question, your problem differs from mine, so it's pretty unlikely this will help you, but in case it helps anyone else:

I booted into a linux USB, connected to a secured wifi on there, then simply rebooted into my installed version. (Wifi autoconnected as it had been working for me before.)

I have no idea why or how it worked for me, but I saw someone else report that work for them, though retroactively thought it might've been a kernel upgrade. I figured there was little risk or harm in trying the bootable, though, and it helped me.

  • it was the kernel version and the wifi driver, i booted an alder version and everything works fine.I am curious on what exactly is the the problem in more details so i will do more digging. Jan 28 '20 at 10:58
  • While I appreciate the extra points for being marked as the best answer, it sounds like your solution is different. If you fix your own problem without/before contribution from others, you're more than welcome to write up your own "response" and accept that - it can be useful for anyone else coming across the page :)
