View Full Version : [ubuntu] wpa problems- network asks for password every 15 seconds but never connects

So I've been having problems with wireless. Fresh install of Karmic. It started off with the well-documented bcm 4328 issues, but now I can see the network and get a good signal off it, just not connect to it. It asks for the password, waits about 15 seconds, and then asks for it again. I have wpasupplicant, and have been working off the wireless troubleshooting guide, but I am stumped now. And yes, I triple-checked that I typed the correct password.

Is the network you are trying to connect to a hidden network? Try making is visible and connecting. It appears as though the latest and greatest version of Ubuntu has trouble with hidden networks...

What version are you running exactly?
