Hey there ! First post, i hope this is detailed enough.
Im trying to get a ICIDU N300 Wifi dongle to work .. According to different guides you need to find out which chipset it has and so i did, which was atheros.. So i went to download the firmware with "sudo apt-get install firmware-atheros" and it worked. If i do a "ifconfig" i get wlan0. At first i could even do a "nmcli dev wifi list" and my ssid was listed there.. But after a reboot it doesnt show any SSID's anymore.
For info my WLAN runs WPA but i have tried making it completely open, which doesnt change anything.
But here is what i did:
The first thing i did was "sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces" .. This file was empty but i added the following:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
I then also did "sudo nano /etc/wpa.conf" which holds:
If i then try to connect to it by using "sudo ifdown wlan0" and then "sudo ifup wlan0" i get this (and yes its a screenshot, too much text to write)
However this screenshot was taken before i rebooted as i mentioned earlier.. But its basicly the same thing that happens now, but now i cant even get any ssid's by typing "nmcli dev wifi list" ..
Can anyone here assist me ? And just for info im a complete newbie at linux, this is my first time with it !
