I have come across a very peculiar error. I can connect my system to an AP that is has no security, WEP security, WPA security with no issues. When I try to connect with ieee8021x, on the other hand, something very curious happens. I have kernel messages on, so I can see the local nic go into the association state after connman prompts for the username and passphrase. But then things hang there. After a couple of minutes (my timeout) The call fails. I look at the state of the connection and it says that it is in association mode. It never fails. At this point I attempt to force a disconnect of the ongoing association and I get an error that there is no carrier. At this point I try to terminate everything with severe prejudice. I stop connman, rfkill block then unblock the wireless device. I restart connman. The state of the wireless device is powered and ready. I try to initiate a scan, and I'm told that there is no carrier. I verify the state of the wireless is powered and ready. I can only get to where the wireless nic is usable only after a re-boot. What could be causing the no carrier error?
