Can't connect to WiFi network @ Debian (BCM4312)
I've a problem with my WiFi on Debian 6 with BCM4312.
The problem is: I can see networks, but when I try to connect it just won't connect.
If I try to connect with wicd it keeps saying 'Bad password', but I'm sure it's the right password. I also can't connect to open networks.
Gnome Network Manager can't connect too: it keeps asking for password again and again (with huge intervals).
With /etc/network/interfaces I only get something like 'searching for DHCP server' many times and then it fails.
What I already did:
The weird thing is: it always worked fine in Ubuntu & Fedora.
Does anyone know how to solve this? I'm pretty familiar with Linux but I don't know too much about it.
I had this issue one time using Ubuntu when I upgraded from 10.4 to the newer 12 version. I could see networks and could see my own hidden network but I could not log on with proper password. My machine kept trying to auto connect to the wrong wifi. I ended up deleting my wifi and recreated it then I could cancel the auto connect on the previous one and it worked. Perhaps this will work for you.
Hey, thanks for your reply!
I tried that already, but it doesn't work for me! :(
Any other ideas?
Hey guys, I got it FINALLY working!
Here is how I solved it (I think, lol):
One question: I did apt-get dist-upgrade, so it upgraded many things. How can I only upgrade the kernel?
I'll reinstall Debian and try to install a new kernel and then wl driver to see if it really works this way!
