[SOLVED] Wifi can find SSID's but cant connect

When typing "wifi-menu" im able to view the networks and attempt to connect. As soon as it starts to connect it just pops up and says "Connection name" has disconnected. Would you like to keep the profile for....
I also tried messing around with kernials to see if I need the athk5 instead but since I have never done that before it didnt get my anywhere Can somone point me in the right direction?

Edit: I have also tried rfkill to see if somthing was soft blocked, that is not the case. I am able to ip link set up and down with no issues. Light on laptop changes acordingly.

Re: [SOLVED] Wifi can find SSID's but cant connect

What's the output of "systemctl list-unit-files --state enabled" resp. systemctl list-units | grep -iE 'net|dhcp|wicd|conn'?

Re: [SOLVED] Wifi can find SSID's but cant connect

Disable NetworkManager and dhcpcd services.
You already have two different services trying to connect with wifi and you are adding third with wifi-menu.

It is already wiki'ed, but yeah, looking at the frequency, no harm in making this sticki'ed.

Re: [SOLVED] Wifi can find SSID's but cant connect

I read right over this so many times......I was over complicating this way to much. Thank you for all your help.

From the wiki page
"There are many solutions to choose from, but remember that all of them are mutually exclusive; you should not run two daemons simultaneously. The following table compares the different connection managers, additional notes are in subsections below."

For the next person that has this issue, here is the wiki page I followed to disable the services.
