kubuntu 18.04 no wifi on network manager but in terminal is detected


WTFFFFF! NO WIFI ON KDE NETWORK MANAGER APPLET but with iwlist is detected  (07:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) so the driver was working properly infact i connect to a open wifi , without password. so WHY!!! i guess for a problem with some systemd conf files anyway….

DETECT IF ANY SERVICE HAS PROBLEMS

 systemctl --type service

which has this silly answer :

systemd-networkd-wait-online.service loaded failed failed Wait for Network to be Configured

checking even the wpa_supplicant service with

systemctl status wpa_supplicant.service
Failed to initialize control interface '/run/wpa_supplicant'.
 You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was
 left by an unclean termination of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need
 to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.
sudo systemctl status NetworkManager.service

i got even this shit

 error>   sup-iface[0x56547f32d5b0,wlp7s0]: error adding interface: wpa_supplicant couldn't grab this interface.

now how to fix it !?

sudo systemctl  stop NetworkManager.service
sudo systemctl  stop wpa_supplicant.service 
sudo systemctl  start wpa_supplicant.service 
sudo pkill wpa_supplicant 
sudo systemctl  start wpa_supplicant.service
sleep 4
sudo systemctl start NetworkManager.service

 

result 😀

USEFULL STUFF

  1. CHECK IF YOUR CARD IS ENABLE ON BIOS , if you want to see that just do  on therminal rfkill list  and make sure it’s all NO
  2. ENABLE YOUR CARD  sudo ifconfig XXXX up ( your card name that should be wlp7s0 you can get the name from ifconfig alone without optios) as you can see here

    sudo rfkill unblock all
    rfkill
    ID TYPE DEVICE SOFT HARD
    0 wlan phy0 unblocked unblocked

  3. try to see if wpa supplicant is installed : sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant
  4. if you can’t see the network applet on your panel well maybe the network manager service is not started so start it and enable it with : sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager.service ; sudo
    systemctl start NetworkManager.service
  5. check the systemd-networkd-wait-online.service with systemctl status systemd-networkd-wait-online.service actuyally it gives me error even when i am connect so i guess it’s not so important like i thought but he has given me a hint to fix this shit so ..
  6. another command useful to get errors it’s this
    journalctl -xe

If you have a crap new ultra speed modem like me ,  and you want set DNS but you can not set them on the modem you can handle the situation in this way

just on network manager , click on the wrench or just go in the settings , locate ipv4 and on Other Dns Server put this : THESE ARE THE GOOGLE DNS … OR CHOOSE WHAT YOU NEED …

8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4

if you want test … just do this
