I cannot connect to wifi network after rebooting.
Following reboot, the output of the
systemctl status netctl-auto@wlp3s0-Arin-1 is:
netctl-auto@wlp3s0-Arin-1.service - Automatic wireless connection using netctl profiles Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/netctl-auto@.service; enabled; vendor present: disabled) Active: Inactive (dead) Docs: man:netctl.special (7)
If I then test
systemctl is-enabled netctl-auto@wlp3s0-Arin-1.service
If I test
returns (in line 3 which is the relevant bit)
wlp3s0: <BROADCAST, MULTICAST, UP LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether: 62:dd:d8.... brd ff:ff:... permaddr 8c:70:5a....
If I try
systemctl start netctl-auto@wlp3s0-Arin-1.service
It asks for username, and after I enter the username and password, it hangs for about five minutes and then returns an error message
" A dependency job for netctl-auto@wlp3s0-Arin-1.service has failed. See journalctl -xe for details"
I then do
and it returns,
" … (some standard text stating failure )then
The job identifier is 1696 and the job result is dependency.
… more standard text then
Unregistered Authenticaltion Agent for unix-process:2416:100184 (system bus name:1.154 … )"
Nothing seems to work to get back the wifi connection.
What do I need to do to get back to (a) a stable internet connection, and (b) when I reboot, I will get back on the Internet?
This problem started after a recent update (as in yesterday)
I have disabled wpa_supplicant.
I cannot uninstall networkmanager as Arch complains about dependency and it will not let me uninstall it.
What would you advise please?
