Network Manager States That I Am Connected, But I Cannot Connect To Any Webpage


Hey all,

I just did a Debian minimal install and am using the package network-manager-gnome to manage wifi. I should also mention I'm running OpenBox. Anyway, network-manager shows up just fine in my systemtray and it lets me connect and displays that I am connected in the system tray. However, when I try to connect to a website it will just say "connecting" for a very long time before timing out. Note that my ethernet works perfectly.

If it helps, this is what shows up in iwconfig after I've "connected" to a network through network-manager:

Code:
wlan0     IEEE 802.11abgn  ESSID:"The Stack Resident Wifi"  
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:5.24 GHz  Access Point: 54:3D:37:02:A5:CC   
          Bit Rate=13 Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=33/70  Signal level=-77 dBm  
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:154   Missed beacon:0
I've searched in many places and I couldn't find someone who had a similar problem. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Some more information would be useful to get a more definitive picture
Code:
ip addr
Code:
netstat -r
Code:
grep -i name /etc/resolv.conf

How far away are you from the access point? Post the output of ifconfig. It would give you your gateway. Try pinging that directly from the terminal to see if it is reachable.

When I installed Debian I had the same problem until I installed the firmware.
After I installed the non-free firmware for my chipset and rebooted my wifi connection worked.

Are you using a static or DHCP ip address?

As DJ Shaji suggested, post the output of ifconfig, being sure to surround them with "Code" tags which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the "compose post" window. That will give us some concrete information to go on.

Actually post the output of lspci as well. Seeing that it is a wifi card, a firmware issue could very well be the cause. I'll be an uncle's monkey if it isn't a BCM 4313 chipset

The OP's first post showed that the station was associated. That won't happen without firmware AFAIU.

Is this the indication that the station is associated thus leading you to know that the firmware is already installed?

Code:
 Mode:Managed  Frequency:5.24 GHz  Access Point: 54:3D:37:02:A5:CC   
          Bit Rate=13 Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm

Yes, that is what I was referring to.

Like others have since suggested, I wanted to see IP configuration and DNS information, since it may just be a name server that is required.
