Using debian distros for a few years. All distros from the last few years seem to share a wierd wpa_supplicant issue. Has anyone else attempted to solve/understand this issue during sleep/resume?
When system goes to sleep, upon resuming wpa_supplicant stops working. Tried the following to get wpa_supplicant to allow connection to networks….
# service wicd stop
# wpa_action wlan0 reload
sudo dhcpcd --release wlan0
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid off
#sudo iwconfig wlan0 ap off
#service network-manager stop
#service networking stop
# ifconfig wlan0 down
#ip link set wlan0 down
#rfkill unblock all
service network-manager status | grep 'active'
no network connections active
Then restart EVERYTHING -> still wpa_supplicant reports “error bad password” via nmcli and/or wicd
restart computer -> everything works again !
What causes this wpa_supplicant error? What else interacts with wpa_supplicant establishing connections – that was not listed above?
