    Question My lappy won't connect anymore.


    Am running PCL 64bit fully updated. About a week ago i booted up and the wifi wouldn't connect anymore. i've tried removing eth0, wth0 and trying again. We've also made a livecd from our main computer with KDE 5 Plasma on it and have booted it on the lappy and successfully connected the wifi.

    Is there any way of looking at/copying the relevant files from the working livecd to the correct locations on my lappy?

    Thanks for looking and have a great evening!

    I had a similar problem with KDE some weeks ago. It was due to a ipv6 problem. Open the wifi settings and try to disable the ipv6.

    For some strange reason the wpa_supplicant.conf file had become sufficiently corrupted that it wasn't saving the password correctly (this is my understanding of what happened). Anyway, i just renamed the file and rebooted. Then set up the wireless card again through the Control Center, Networking - or whatever it is and ... connected!

    One happy camper! i see that it recreated the wpa_supplicant.conf file, but this time it was not the > 900 lines long, but only held the info for this one wireless point.

    Thanks for all of your help and have a wonderful day!
