Did a fresh install of 16.04 and can see my wifi router as well as my neighbors'. When I put in the password, it won't connect and asks for the password again. Searched the web for answers:
- Tried the fix to stop the mac address changes,
- Restarted network-manager a bunch of times,
- Made sure the wireless driver was updated.
- Tried a usb install of 12.04; it wouldn't connect either.

Added a post where I linked to the output file for the wireless-info script.
Tried to start the wifi using nmtui but it did the same thing.
Tried to copy and paste the password into network-manager, no difference.
See my comments below on the stuff I tried tonight.
