Description: client support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i)
 WPA and WPA2 are methods for securing wireless networks, the former
 using IEEE 802.1X, and the latter using IEEE 802.11i. This software
 provides key negotiation with the WPA Authenticator, and controls
 association with IEEE 802.11i networks.

I can't connect to my home wireless access-point from my parallel desktop ubuntu virtual machine.

  • what does 'iwconfig' show? iwlist only shows that the AP is visible, not that the device has associated to it. – slangasek Feb 27 at 6:48
  • @slangaseki i did update question with iwconfig output. Thanks for your attention. – Vahid Alimohamadi Feb 27 at 9:36

Since you have not associated with the AP, you should check the logs of the wpasupplicant service:

journalctl -lu wpa_supplicant.service
