Continuiously asked for password when trying to connect wirelessly. Fedora LXDE 22.
Hopefully this will be an easy fix. I am on an IBM Thinkpad R51 running Fedora 22 LXDE. I think the OS is a great fit for my old Thinkpad, but I have one small problem for which I can't seem to find an answer. My internet connection is managed by the default Network Manager. It automatically detects, and connects to the internet when plugged directly to the router via the Ethernet port. However, if I attempt to connect to the wireless network it asks me for my password over and over again without establishing a connection. The card is: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter
It can 'see' all of the available networks, but again, when I attempt to connect it will just ask me to input my network password repeatedly. I am sure that it is the correct password. I tried to use WICD, as I have found that solved the problem for some people, but with WICD I would get error messages about D-Bus. I am new, and this operating system had no files or information I needed so I re-installed with no success. Are there any minds out there willing to guide a novice?
Thanks in advance.
I ran a command I found which showed me the Network Manager logs, and I thought the following might be useful information:
Aug 17 20:57:01 localhost.localdomain NetworkManager: <warn> (wlp2s2): Activation: (wifi) association took too long
Aug 17 20:57:01 localhost.localdomain NetworkManager: <info> (wlp2s2): device state change: config -> failed (reason 'no
Aug 17 20:57:01 localhost.localdomain NetworkManager: <warn> (wlp2s2): Activation: failed for connection '*****'

Reason: Added information
Doesn't look good - this has been having problems for over 10 years. And Intel doesn't appear interested in it (no download on their site).
A standard F22 (gnome) system has both the kernel module and firmware, so I assume you all have that ok.
Maybe just go buy a cheap USB wifi - I've found the D-Link ones work ok when I've had broken wifi.
Update: I ran a live boot of Lubuntu just to compare, and I had the same issue. The reason I did that is because I had connection issues with Fedora on a Dell netbook, and Ubuntu Gnome seemed to solve that problem. Still only able to use a wired connection with the Thinkpad in either case.

I hate to mark this as solved, since there really was no solution to the problem in the OP, however it is resolved. I had a spare usb wireless network adapter, Belkin 4050, which never really worked particularly well in anything else. Plugged it in, and it connected instantly. I am using it right now. So problem solved? No. Problem resolved? Yes
