    addwifi failure

    Thanks so much. I'll give that a shot tomorrow. I don't recall selecting anything that should have changed the default behavior. I was using the desktop flavor.

    addwifi failure

    # nmcli d DEVICE TYPE STATE wlan0 802-11-wireless unavailable eth0 802-3-ethernet unavailable Will edit with output of other commands after chrooting from liveUSB to have network connection for copy paste. EDIT TO ADD That does not seem like it would be helpful after looking at the output it is the info from the liveUSB system that is not relevant. Will have to type it out by hand. #ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 04:7d:7b:e8:da:0d UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 9c:4e:36:37:37:04 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) # cat /proc/net/wireless Interface| status | Quality | Discarded packets | Missed | WE | | link level noise | nwid crypt frag retry misc | beacon | 22 #cat /proc/net/dev Interface | Receive | Transmit | bytes packets errs drop fifo frame compressed multicast | bytes packets errs drop fifo colls carrier compressed eth0: lo: wlan0: There are 0s across the board for all three interfaces. emerge --info net-misc/networkmanager Returns too much info. Will have to output it to a file somehow and pastebin it. EDIT: see attached file. File did not attach. Please see http://pastebin.com/hnpudReX for this info.

    addwifi failure

    Thanks. If I wasn't clear I did try the add wifi command after rebooting, not in the chroot. I did build the debian-sources kernel. As far as I know I only have Network Manager in use. Will try nmcli commands and report back. Thanks for your help.

    addwifi failure

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think the driver is installed and loaded but not sure. # lsmod | grep wifi iwlwifi 87837 1 iwldvm cfg80211 412130 3 iwlwifi,mac80211,iwldvm I did chroot from a live usb and emerge rfkill. Now after rebooting and running the addwifi command I get a different error: Error: Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetworkManager or unavailable rfkill list returned two entries, neither of which was soft or hard blocked.
  5. I've been using Linux for years but never a source-based distro. Going through the installation guide when I got to the step of # addwifi -S wpa -K 'wifipassword' mywifinetwork I received an error message as follows: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/addwifi", line 164, in <module> main() File "/usr/sbin/addwifi:, line 144 in main check_call(['rfkill','unblock','wlan','wifi']) File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 542, in check_call retcode = call(*popenargs, **kwargs) File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 523, in call with Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs) as p: File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 819, in __init__ restore_signals start_new_session) File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 1448, in _execute_child raise child_exception_type(errno_num, err_msg) FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'rfkill' Some googling and forum searches suggested that being in the chroot environment might preclude addwifi from working, however when I boot to the terminal (which goes without error) I get the same error. I have also confirmed that dbus and the network manager service was running. Any suggestions on how to further troubleshoot this? Can't try it right now, because don't have my bootable USB to get into a chroot, but do I need to emerge rfkill? My hardware is a Lenovo U310, Intel C210 series chipset, Core i5 CPU, Network controller is intel centrino wireless-n 2200. Thanks in advance. EDIT: Found this. Not sure what is meant by but that might be the solution as well.
