Channel "None", signal strength 101% and getting "Bad password"

Asked by Jan Mazanec on 2012-07-03

I'm using debian and wicd 1.7.2.4.

strange thing happened, I was using couple days without problems one wlan net (with WPA2 encryption), but suddenly without changing anything I cannot connect to this net anymore and get "Connection failed:Bad password" (but password is OK and on other windows PC it is possible to connect).

And the signal for this network is 101% (before it was like 40) and Channel listed is "None".

With "iwlist wlan0 scanning" I also see for this wlan network strange "Channel:-1e+06"

I have Broadcom BCM4313 and before it was working properly (unfortunately I cannot test it now with other network than this one, which doesn't work).

I was googling and trying things for 2 days without finding anything which works - What can be the problem?
Thanks!
Jan

Hello,

Seems like it is a driver problem. WICD reads the output of "iwlist", so if it's wrong there, then the problem is outside wicd.

Kindly,
David
