      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Trouble connecting to new Router

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a new router. I have been able to connect all my wireless devices including Win7 PCs, Wii, DSi's, wireless network printer with no trouble except my Mandriva 2010.2 KDE PC. From the graphical control panel I am not getting any useful feedback beyond a connection failed message. I am using WPA2-PSK which I have used in the past with no trouble. Any suggestions on trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank You,

Have you set up your Firewall in MCC (Mandriva Linux Control Center)?

 

Start > Tools > System Tools > Configure Your Computer > Security > Set up your personal firewall.

 

 

You can also try deleting your existing connection and recreating a new one there.

You could run 'ifup' in a command shell. It at least gives you a clue as to what it is doing.

If you don't know the command just open a shell and type (as root) ifup followed by whatever the dice is that you are connecting with.

E.G. 'ifup eth0', for your first hardwired connection, or 'ifup wlan0' for your first wireless lan.

You will get a bit more information of what is happening. If you want more information on what the process is doing run in a separate shell 'tail -f /var/log/syslog' and watch real time log entries of the attempted connection.

I tried clearing the connection and recreating it, didn't work.

I tried cycling the power to the router, didn't work.

Firewall is configured to no firewall.

 

This is the system log

I finally got it to work by giving up on WPA2 and just using WPA.

For whatever reason Mandriva was the only network device I have that won't work with the router using WPA2.
