netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

This has me stumped.

Here is my netctl profile:

gdm@gdmThink ~$ cat /etc/netctl/mifi4510l
Description='A simple WPA encrypted wireless connection using a static IP'
Interface=wlp3s0
Connection=wireless
Security=wpa
ESSID='Verizon MIFI4510L E3A0 Secure'
Key='password'
IP=static
Address='192.168.1.11/24'
Gateway='192.168.1.1'
DNS=('192.168.1.1')
TimeoutWPA=30

Here is a pastebin link to the "journalctl -b" for a failed boot:
http://pastebin.com/GbELjqm0

Here is a pastebin link to the "journalctl -b for a successful boot.
http://pastebin.com/ywzDvkqD

Other than there is no attempt to authenticate in the failed boot, I see no significant difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

I'll have to ask, since I've had a similar issue recently. Does the interface name change those times connection fails? Or is it always wlp3s0?

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

"gdmThink systemd-udevd[197]: renamed network interface wlan0 to wlp3s0" appears in the failed boots.
"gdmThink systemd-udevd[186]: renamed network interface wlan0 to wlp3s0" appears in the successful boots.

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

Update

From the failed boot:

[root@gdmThink gdm]# grep mifi4510l journal.failed

note the "mifi4510l is already up" about line 3 and the last line.


from the successful boot:

[root@gdmThink gdm]# grep mifi4510l journal.success

May 20 07:54:57 gdmThink systemd[1]: Job netctl@mifi4510l.service/start finished, result=done

No such errors.

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

When it fails, does systemctl report any services that have failed?  And do those services start successfully when things work?

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

The  following three failed messages appear in the journal of the failed boot but not the successful boot

May 20 07:51:14 gdmThink systemd[1]: netctl@mifi4510l.service changed start -> failed

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

It would be more useful if detailed status log is provided accompanied by the relevant dmesg lines. Don't use grep as it hides context and flow. Just look for relevant lines and copy the whole block.

For detailed status:

systemctl status -n 100 netctl@mifi4510l.service

(100 is just a sufficiently large number)

Re: netctl wireless fails every other boot [SOLVED]

Because I originally used dhcp rather than a static connection.

I disabled dhcpcd and every thing seems to be working properly.

I wonder about connecting to wifi services at motels etc. but for now my problem is solved.

Thank you all.
