My network is called "enjoi" and this "linksys" network is not a secure network. So I am using the linksys network and I can't access my enjoi network to put in my password key.

My router is using WPA and I remember my password and essid but I still can't get my computer to recognize the network so that I can log in.

I am using networkmanager as well as the daemon and I recently took out "network" from my daemon list. I am not sure how to change the administrative access permissions (excuse my misunderstandings).

Is there a way that I can just click on a network and put in a password without so much trouble?

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

The "enjoi" network does not show up in your scan, it either is not really up or it is using a channel that probably you shouldn't be legally using in your country (assuming everything is properly configured and working well in your client machine), that's why you are not able to connect.

Recheck the router settings and if possible specify a channel to use, channel 1 might be a good choice, then try again. Make sure the ESSID is being broadcasted, hiding it does not afford you any useful protection and sometimes it complicates things.

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

I checked my router by hooking up via the Ethernet wire. I changed the channel to 1 on the router and it was broadcasting the ESSID. I see the "enjoi" network when I look at the wireless icon and several other wireless networks are available as well.

When I rebooted something caught my eye though. I had the network auto config enabled in my daemons and it tried to load up during the boot process. The dialog was something along the lines of "wpa_supplicant failed to initialize" I couldn't catch exactly what it said but do I need to change some settings related to "wpa_supplicant?"

rg_edit: Also, the changes didn't have any effect, I still can't access any secure networks.

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

"Line 768: failed to parse network block." ... a configuration file with 768 lines?! That's way too much for the configuration of a single network, I would say that the problem is with the configuration file you are supplying to wpa_supplicant.

If you are using only wpa without any certificates try using wpa_passphrase to generate a valid configuration file and try again.

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

I did wpa_passphrase and got that huge number as an output for enjoi. Now I am having trouble figuring out how to get wpa_supplicant to work properly. Everything in the file talks about examples.. is this normal? Should I erase all of the examples and just put in exactly what I need to put in there?

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

I put 

network={
        ssid="enjoi"
        #psk="TjKr 2011"
        psk=98c1cd1bffbbc0b561ca5e6d9fc9c8e74e33907173245a66500553309d3dbf27
}

into /etc/wireless_supplicant.conf. Before that I moved the original file to /etc/wireless_supplicant.conf.original and then erased all of the example material. So I am left with only that piece of code. I still can't get access to the network.. its a bit frustrating.

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

You didn't have to move the original /etc/wireless_supplicant.conf file, you can tell wpa_supplicant to use any file, just provide the correct path after -c. The output of wpa_passphrase should be exactly what you show here and it seems correct. The only thing that _might_ cause trouble is the space in the passphrase, try replacing it with an underscore.

So this looks strange ... double check that the password you are trying to use is the same on the router and your client, I know it sounds silly but it doesn't hurt to check.

Check that you are letting everyone associate or at least that you have the mac address of your wireless card in the list of allowed clients.

If that doesn't work lets see the output of 'iwlist wlan0 scan' and 'wpa_supplicant -D wext -c /etc/wireless_supplicant.conf -i wlan0' again.

The interesting thing about this output. Its the exact same output as before but a few minutes ago when I initiated the wireless on my computer it scanned all the nearby networks (including "enjoi"). This linksys gets connected automatically everytime and I don't know how to stop that network from automatically connecting. I clicked on "enjoi" and nothing happened but when I clicked on another network a dialog pops up asking for the administrative password. Its recognizing enjoi but its not connecting.. its very strange. when I setup my wireless it was on a unsecure network at a friend's house and I believe that router was a linksys brand.

Here is the output from the second command you mentioned:

$ wpa_supplicant -D wext -c /etc/wireless_supplicant.conf -i wlan0
Failed to read or parse configuration '/etc/wireless_supplicant.conf'.

rg_edit: ok this is the output I was talking about at the beginning of the post.

ah... I made a simple mistake. /etc/wireless_supplicant.conf should have been typed out as /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf instead

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

I can see that for some reason your router is not using channel 1 as you said it should be using and channel 6 is a little crowded where you are. Apart from that your last attempt with wpa_supplicant looks ok.

After associating/authenticating with wpa_supplicant with need to request an IP with a dhcp client such as dhcpcd or dhclient and then everything should be working.

On another terminal use 'dhcpcd wlan0' to get an IP and then try to check if you have network connectivity.

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

wow this is really strange... I know I am connected to my router now but networkmanager says that I am still connected to the annoying linksys network. I know this is my router because the signal strength is really high since I am sitting right next to it. Also the internet is really fast which is another sign its my network since linksys is a neighbor's network and usually has low signal strength.

I guess something happened with the setup when I initially setup my wireless on my friend's unsecure linksys network about a week ago. *scratches head in confusion*

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

Ok I rebooted and it is finally recognizing my network like it should be. Should this be all I need to do to make it work automatically everytime I start my computer... or should I do some extra steps to avoid this from happening again?

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

It should just work without doing any manual steps, what you have done with wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd is connect manually. Try to find out where networkmanager stores the information about networks and credentials and rename/delete it and try setting up your connection again. I can't be of help there because I use wicd and not networkmanager.

Re: Cannot access my secure wireless network[SOLVED]

ok I believe everything works just fine now. I just removed networkmanager (and the daemon from rc.conf) and then re installed it after a reboot. It popped up again but I was able to put in an administrative password and now enjoi network syncs up fine.
