Wifi unable to associate on Atheros AR242x / AR542x


I installed Precise Puppy 5.7.1 on an Acer Aspire One A0751h with a Atheros AR242x / AR542x card for wifi. Whenever I try to connect to my home WiFi network with any of the network connection software that comes one the distribution I get an error. Specifically when I use Puppy Network Wizard I get an error which's details say "Access Point: Not-Associated" and "wpa_state=ASSOCIATING". I've spent hours on google trying this supposed solution and that supposed solution and so far nothing has changed anything. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
Please keep in mind that this is my first attempt to put linux on a computer and as such have very limited knowledge of the OS.

Hello malsagenda, welcome to LQ,

please open a terminal on your Linux-machine and execute (as root or with sudo) the command
Code:
lspci -k | grep -iA3 wire
or
Code:
lspci -k | grep -iA3 athe
which will show us exactly which wifi adapter you have and if an appropriate kernel-module is loaded. Post the output here. Also execute
Code:
iwconfig
and
Code:
iwlist wlan0 scan
both as root.

If you have already wpa_supplicant installed, you should use it (on the commandline) because it gives you verbose errormessages (which can be helpful). Edit the /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file (maybe /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf on your system) and enter the correct settings for your accesspoint (there should be an examplefile in /usr/share/doc/wpa_supplicant). Then execute
Code:
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/pathtowpa_supplicant.conf
be sure to use the correct path for the -c option. The take a look at the output.

Check the system logs on /var/log/messages, /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log or /var/log/syslog for errors and post here.

Code:
# iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
I can however scan for networks with x network wizard

Initially I didn't have a wpa_supplicant.conf file, nor did I have the template. So, I google it and downloaded the sourcefile which had the template in it (or at least that's what I think it was), but after editing and saving and running the command you gave, I just got a couple pages of line #'s followed by errors. So, I'm pretty sure I did something wrong.

Code:
Jan 29 22:47:21 Netbook user.info kernel: [ 6688.663065] wlan0: associate with 74:d0:2b:66:96:1c (try 1/3)
Jan 29 22:47:21 Netbook user.info kernel: [ 6688.665280] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 74:d0:2b:66:96:1c (capab=0x411 status=18 aid=0)
Jan 29 22:47:21 Netbook user.info kernel: [ 6688.665297] wlan0: 74:d0:2b:66:96:1c denied association (code=18)
Jan 29 22:47:21 Netbook user.info kernel: [ 6688.665390] wlan0: deauthenticating from 74:d0:2b:66:96:1c by local choice (reason=3)
And there were pages of errors that looked like this, as far as I could tell they were all just copies of these 4 lines.

Also, thank you guys so much for all your help.

Well, you'll have to bring the wlan up before executing the iwlist-command.

As for the settings in the wpa_supplicant.conf, please tell us which Access point you're using and which settings (WPA2?) and then post the wpa_supplicant.conf (without the password(s) and the SSID).

The errormessages at the bottom of your post show that at least the wireless-adapter is working (the output of lspci shows that the appropriate module is loaded) and wpa_supplicant is installed. Furthermore there is no syntactical error in the wpa_supplicant.conf but it seems that the authentication is not configured correctly.

I'm not sure what you mean, or how to go about bringing the wlan up. If you could clarify that would be appreciated.

I'll be honest I wasn't really sure how to use this config file, so I'm not suprised I used it wrong.

It's WPA2 - Personal

.TH "WPA_SUPPLICANT.CONF" "5" "12 January 2013" "" ""

.SH NAME
wpa_supplicant.conf \- configuration file for wpa_supplicant
.SH "OVERVIEW"
.PP
\fBwpa_supplicant\fR is configured using a text
file that lists all accepted networks and security policies,
including pre-shared keys. See the example configuration file,
probably in \fB/usr/share/doc/wpa_supplicant/\fR, for
detailed information about the configuration format and supported
fields.
.PP
All file paths in this configuration file should use full
(absolute, not relative to working directory) path in order to allow
working directory to be changed. This can happen if wpa_supplicant is
run in the background.
.PP
Changes to configuration file can be reloaded be sending
SIGHUP signal to \fBwpa_supplicant\fR ('killall -HUP
wpa_supplicant'). Similarly, reloading can be triggered with
the \fBwpa_cli reconfigure\fR command.
.PP
Configuration file can include one or more network blocks,
e.g., one for each used SSID. wpa_supplicant will automatically
select the best network based on the order of network blocks in
the configuration file, network security level (WPA/WPA2 is
preferred), and signal strength.

Authentication for wired Ethernet. This can be used with

.RE
.SH "CERTIFICATES"
.PP
Some EAP authentication methods require use of
certificates. EAP-TLS uses both server side and client
certificates whereas EAP-PEAP and EAP-TTLS only require the server
side certificate. When client certificate is used, a matching
private key file has to also be included in configuration. If the
private key uses a passphrase, this has to be configured in
wpa_supplicant.conf ("private_key_passwd").
.PP
wpa_supplicant supports X.509 certificates in PEM and DER
formats. User certificate and private key can be included in the
same file.
.PP
If the user certificate and private key is received in
PKCS#12/PFX format, they need to be converted to suitable PEM/DER
format for wpa_supplicant. This can be done, e.g., with following
commands:
.sp
.RS

.nf
# convert client certificate and private key to PEM format
openssl pkcs12 -in example.pfx -out user.pem -clcerts
# convert CA certificate (if included in PFX file) to PEM format
openssl pkcs12 -in example.pfx -out ca.pem -cacerts -nokeys

You could try
Code:
# home network; allow all valid ciphers
network={
	ssid="[REDACTED]"
	proto=WPA RSN
        scan_ssid=1
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=ccmp
	psk="[REDACTED]"
}
which works for me for WPA2, but it depends on the settings of your accesspoint.

I used that code, and just that code. I deleted everything else and put in my ssid and psk and reran the code you gave before and got the following errors

Code:
Line 7: invalid cipher 'ccmp'.
Line 7: failed to parse pairwise 'ccmp'.
Line 9: failed to parse network block.
Failed to read or parse configuration '/mnt/home/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf'.

i would disable network manager (or whatever) from within the gui and if possible disable security for the time being on the router (wep/wpa/wpa2). then run :
Code:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid [REDACTED]
sudo dhclient wlan0

When I ran that code, it didn't display any error messages, just new lined, and the network symbol on the tray changed from not connected, to connected. However, when I opened the browser to try and open a webpage, it instantly gave me a no internet access error.

btw, ran without any security (not something I'd want to do as a long term fix).

good point, i just wanted to make sure that the routers security wasnt borking your connection.

i'm kinda' stumped... can you please share the output of
Code:
echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n && echo ping router: && ping -c 1 `route | awk '/default/ {print $2}'` && echo ping dns-server: && ping -c 1 `awk '/nameserver/ {print $2}' /etc/resolv.conf | head -n 1` && echo ping using ip: && ping -c 1 64.235.229.141 && echo ping using dns: && ping -c 1 www.02144.com
after you run thru the steps in post #11 again.

Ok, so it must have generated an error before and I just not have noticed (sorry, I've been pretty sick the last few weeks), because this time when I ran the code it told me that dhclient was an invalid command. After a quick search I found the command that works in puppy Linux (and hopefully does the same thing) and ran that. It timed out. I ran the other code you gave and copied the content for you all the same, in case it'd be useful in fixing this.

Code:
# sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
# sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0     Scan completed :
         
removed for length

# sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid 'REDACTED'
# sudo dhclient wlan0
sudo: dhclient: command not found
# sudo dhcpcd wlan0
dhcpcd[5848]: version 5.6.4 starting
dhcpcd[5848]: all: configured as a router, not a host
dhcpcd[5848]: wlan0: waiting for carrier
dhcpcd[5848]: timed out

ping router:
BusyBox v1.21.0 (2013-02-18 15:57:06 WST) multi-call binary.

Usage: ping [OPTIONS] HOST

Send ICMP ECHO_REQUEST packets to network hosts

	-4,-6		Force IP or IPv6 name resolution
	-c CNT		Send only CNT pings
	-s SIZE		Send SIZE data bytes in packets (default:56)
	-t TTL		Set TTL
	-I IFACE/IP	Use interface or IP address as source
	-W SEC		Seconds to wait for the first response (default:10)
			(after all -c CNT packets are sent)
	-w SEC		Seconds until ping exits (default:infinite)
			(can exit earlier with -c CNT)
	-q		Quiet, only displays output at start
			and when finished

#
Just as a note, had to remove the output from the wlan scan for me to be allowed to post it (length). It scanned, and you can see all my neighbors wonderful wifi names in previous post. =)
