Ubuntu wicd validating authentication

I need a way of connecting via wicd-cli automatically.

I live in a crowded wireless area..network id could change at any time but my name will be consistent.

Trying to connect to another, unprotected network, i get up to "obtaining ip address", then it quits without connecting.

"rfkill list" says wirelass is hard blocked (earlier it was neither soft- nor hard blocked). I've tried to connect using another OS (booting a fresh puppy from usb) and it couldn't connect either, reporting: "ifconfig siocsifflags operation not possible due to rf-kill" Do I have a hardware problem?

The wifi is protected as WPA- EAP : TLS (using ssh key pairs and .pem) I tried using wicd, but I permanently get an error of 'bad password', I'm not sure how to troubleshoot the connect (I can't how to get the debug messages going through the terminal to work out what isn't connecting).

So I decided to try connecting directly via wicd (they supply the config and a script). I think in the first instance with all the 'messing around' I had been doing trying to get the wifi to work I had ended up with multiple wpa_supplicants running, or an issue with a conflict in wicd.

He told me that a some common network cards have problems connecting to eduroam and that they often gave the problem of a connection without any data transfer although he hadn't seen it on a linux machine before.

I am able to disconnect from networks using the following command: $ wicd-cli -y -x -m "My Network" Disconnecting from My Network on wlan0 But when attempting to reconnect to this network I'm getting no response: $ wicd-cli -y -c -m "My Network" done!

I have debug set on wicd and when I tail the log after running connect all I get is: 2014/07/05 :: ifconfig wlan0 2014/07/05 :: ifconfig wlan0 2014/07/05 :: ifconfig wlan0 2014/07/05 :: ifconfig wlan0 2014/07/05 :: ifconfig wlan0 As opposed to connecting with the following command: $ wicd-cli -y -c -n 2 Connecting to My Network with wpa-psk on wlan0 Putting interface down...

AR5008 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)) Code: wpa_passphrase would give me an error with the password I had been trying to use for years... when I removed a ";" (i think) it then gave me a result. id=520535 ..I too can confirm that setting the router to "g and b only" results in full g speeds.

Note, that the old password worked fine on other devices. I MIGHT have also played with some of the /etc/modprobe.d/ files... Edit: Oh yeah, I switched my router to only use Channel 6... Edit2: I also change my router to "WPA2 ONLY" instead of "Auto" (WPA or WPA2)... https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ s...ux/ bug/344022 I should also say that although my router says I've got an n connection, its rate is less than a g connection... https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ s...ux/ bug/298192
