Having trouble troubleshooting a wifi problem :(

Hello. Just downloaded Waldorf and I'm really liking it smile
However, I have one wifi issue and I'm not really sure if it's Waldorf's fault or my wifi. I'm hoping someone can help me.

The situation is this: I cannot connect to a specific wifi network. Crunchbang detects several wifi networks so I don't think it's my wifi card (Realtek 8188CE). However, the one I want to connect to--the one for my house--isn't working. It just keeps asking for the password over and over again and I'm certain the password is right because I use it in other laptops.

The strange thing is, it will connect to the other wifi network in my house without problem. Unfortunately, this connection (let's call it network B) will be replaced by network A (the one described above) soon and network B will go down eventually as we're using a new service now--network A, which isn't connecting sad

If it makes any difference, network A is WPA-Personal and network B is WPA2-Personal. That's the only difference I can think of between the two.

I feel like the problem isn't with Waldorf, but with by network. But I'm really not sure, as I suck at troubleshooting U^_^

So. . . help? smile

Re: Having trouble troubleshooting a wifi problem :(

Are you sure you installed Waldorf, not Statler.
If it is Waldorf you should post in Help & Support (Testing/Unstable)

Post output of

uname -r
lspci -knn
lsusb

to start with.

Are you using NetworkManager or something else to manage your wireless?

Crunchbang follows the Debian release cycle.

Re: Having trouble troubleshooting a wifi problem :(

Wheezy =/= Testing

Right now, Wheezy is Testing; therefore, for now Waldorf is based on Debian Testing.  Once Wheezy goes Stable, Waldorf will be based on Debian Stable.  (You'll note there is no reference to Stable or Testing in /etc/apt/sources.list.)  It will be supported by Debian for about a year past the release of Jessie as Stable.


I'm a moderator here.  How are we doing?  Feedback is encouraged.

Re: Having trouble troubleshooting a wifi problem :(

^ your answer is in the Debian's FAQ

Release cycles
[...]
Debian "releases when ready" but then supports that release until about a year after the next release. 22 months to release Etch, 22 months to release Lenny + 12 months = 56 months. Slow moving progress through testing to release, regular point updates with security fixes.

edit: as pvsage already said.. big_smile

Re: Having trouble troubleshooting a wifi problem :(

@bcmlinux
I would just make sure your sources.list has Waldorf/Wheezy, & apt-get upgrade it before passing it on.
That should keep it happy for about four years or so before Jessie, the next Debian release, is made stable.
