I’ve just done a clean install on my Lenovo W530 with Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (rev 3e) wireless card. The wireless card finds it really hard to make a connection, with the message ‘failed to authenticate connection’ (or similar, i have connection now so dont want to lose it to check). swapping to a different network, or turning wireless on or off will eventually get it to connect.
EDIT: the warning is: ‘connection failed
activation of network connection failed’
I had read that rolling back the crypto policies might work so i tried:
OK, so there is an additional element to this issue now, it appears after more testing that sleep (closing lid or suspend from menu) wrecks the wifi card’s ability to activate a network connection as per my OP. restarting fedora fixes but this is kinda time-consuming
can anyone suggest a solution or a path towards one please? many thanks
