Wicd validating authentication

Rated 4.96/5 based on 621 customer reviews

– In xubuntu Settings Start‑Up Applications: removed tick before Network Manager, added tick before wicd. Bug: ---- – wicd fails to connect on system start‑up.

– Open the wicd "Choose from the networks below" panel and click the "Connect" button.

However, when I connect with wicd it stalls at validating authentication and then gives a "bad password" error message. Changing to dhclient just makes it fail at obtaining IP ADRESS. So basically you are saying that wicd is defective so I should use something else? So basically you are saying that wicd is defective so I should use something else? Seeing as I am here, though: ikaruga2099 have you tried moving/deleting your profile(s)?

Well, I'm not going to tell you not to use wicd :-) It is nice software. Until that day, though, it looks like you will need to use some alternative. I've seen wicd report that the password is incorrect when in fact what failed was getting an ip address through dhcp.

– After an attempt to connect, wicd reports "BAD PASSWORD".

– This is both incorrect and confusing, because the password is correct. – After an attempt to connect, wicd again reports "BAD PASSWORD".

The configure menu in control center then reverts to WEP and every time you change it to WPA/WPA2 preshared key if you open it again it says WEP. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.

I get the same "revert to WEP' if I remove the wlan0 connection and set up a new network interface.

In the network centre, I can see my network and all my neighbours, suggesting all is working fine When I connect to my router I get "connection failed" . Connecting manually:-#dhclient -v wlan0Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client 4.3.3-P1Listening on LPF/wlan0/c8:ff::d3:db Sending on LPF/wlan0/c8:ff::d3:db Sending on Socket/fallback DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 4DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 10DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 9DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 16DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7No DHCPOFFERS received. This proves the "BAD PASSWORD" error message itself to be false.Analysis: --------- Either (1) This is a bug in wicd. The network is WEP ad-hoc with a plain-text passphrase.The laptop is a 1005HA eee pc with a Atheros AR9285 Wi Fi card.
