I'm trying to connect my HP laptop from Kububtu 16.04 to a WPA PEAP WiFi connection. It either gets stuck on "configuring interface" or keeps repeatedly asking me for the password.
Now, I have tried all the solutions available on this site. For example, editing the
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ssid to either removing
system-ca-certs line, or adding the password manually or adding the certificate from
/usr/share/ca-certs/mozilla. I also disabled "Allow all users to connect to this network". None of the solutions have worked for me. (I always restart NetworkManager before trying another solution).
Also curiously enough after several reboots, once in a while, I'm able to connect to the network, and it keeps getting disconnected, saying wpa supplicant timed out — but I can just click on reconnect and it reconnects immediately. This is until I switch to some other network (the network in question is my university network). Then again I cannot connect to this network on the next day.
Edit: These are the contents of my ssid file (identity and password redacted, obviously)
