Description Айфф 2017-11-23 15:48:30 UTC
Can't connect to Wi-Fi via NetworkManager, if you change the MAC address (in settings “Clone MAC address”). If you connect without changing the MAC address, then everything works.

What could be the problem?

Comment 1 Thomas Haller 2017-11-23 16:28:54 UTC
The driver not supporting to change the MAC address.

Or a race condition in supplicant to not notice the MAC address change.

Provide a logfile if level=TRACE level ( ).

Hi, can you also attach wpa_supplicant debug logs? To capture them add '-dd' to OTHER_ARGS in /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant, then run 'systemctl restart wpa_supplicant'; reproduce the issue and then attach the output of

  journalctl -u NetworkManager -u wpa_supplicant --since '2 minutes ago'
