[SOLVED] Unable to connect ThinkPad T14 to WiFi

I have recently reset my laptop after trying a few different distros (hint I hated them so I am back on Arch)

I am having an issue getting WiFi setup for the laptop since switching back. I have installed the wpa_supplicant, and am using systemd-networkd for my network and then I have attempted to set up the WPA supplicant using the information in the following documentations HERE and HERE.

Everything looks as though it works but then when I get into the interfaces the wlp3s0 is down and when I use the

ip link set wlp3s0 up

I can see in the

jounrnalctl -xe

shows that the wlp3s0: Link UP

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Additional notes. I have no issues when using the wifi network when using the archiso
I have tried both the iwd and NetworkManager packages in the past to manage and the same issue
and completed multiple installs

Post that journal without the -x so we can actually have a look at what you're talking about.

Random guess, you forgot to install linux-firmware

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to connect ThinkPad T14 to WiFi

Okay, So additional information, I have taken the laptop to sit next to my switch and plugged in an Eth cable, still no network and I have confirmed that I have Linux-Firmware installed (Was a part of my base install) I have just completed a fresh install and confirmed that I installed netctl iwd and dhcpcd. Still, nothing on any of the ports and they are all listed as dow, even if I use IP link <addr> up nothing have reinstalled three times today following the instructions to the letter... Wish I never left my nice simple Arch install from the past tongue I would like to post up the journal I will need to do that tomorrow as I will need to chroot into it to see it.

If there is anything other than firmware that you can think of in the meantime, let me know, and I will be more then happy to take a look.

Thanks

From the lack of information this just sounds like a repeat of https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 8#p1948998 to me... None of the things you mentioned you've installed will do anything by just being installed. Decide for one of them, go through the wiki to find which services you need to enable and start for any of the given solutions.

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to connect ThinkPad T14 to WiFi

Thank you for your response, I feel this is a different issue to Topic 1948998. Can you please advise the information that you would like for me to post and I will post it up. I can load the system up in

chroot

and then attempt to pastepinit so that I can provide the information that I would need in order to troubleshoot this. I will not be able to get the

systemctl status

as this is not possible while you chrooted.

Your assistance is appreciated smile

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to connect ThinkPad T14 to WiFi

sudo journalctl -b

should work from a chroot
