Bug Description

I'm unable to connect to internet through wifi since this morning, since wpasupplicant_2.4-0ubuntu6.4_amd64.deb was updated on my machine this morning at 3 am and I didn't have trouble ever before I strongly suspect this update to have caused the problem

What happens when you try to connect?
What kind of wireless connection are you using?
Do you have anything relevant in your log files?

@mdeslaur Thanks for replying quickly.
When I try to connect, the wifi indicator in the panel turn for ~103 sec, ( usually it was replaced by the wifi icon and ESSID name when it worked ) and then the ethernet icon appears but since there's no network cable plugged...
About the log I ran this script https://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=1089311 but I'd rather not post everything that came back here ( list of all available SSID, etc....) but if you point me toward what you need I'd be glad to provide you some of it

Once again today I couldn't connect to the SSID I normally use, I tried something in network manager, through the drop down menu ( accessible through left click on the network icon/indicator located on the upper panel, all the way down the menu, select "modifications des connexions" ( don't know the English version for sure ) select the wifi connection you usually use then press the button "modify", a configuration window opens up, on the second tab, "Wi-Fi" the "Mode:" setting was set on "Client" I changed it to "Ad hoc" and was able to connect right away.
I switched back to "Client" and will monitor the behavior...

If it's easy to trigger maybe you could try to downgrade to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wpa/2.4-0ubuntu6.3 to confirm the problem is resolved with that version (so we are sure it's an issue with the wpa update)

Serpico (arnaud-abbal) wrote :

@seb128 Is there a repo I can enable/activate to install this previous version? In the page you linked I didn't see any .deb file....

you need to click in the "build: <arch>" to have the deb, e.g
https://bugs.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-security-proposed/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+build/15249000
There is no repo for those though
