Re: Wi-Fi broken on Dell E6520, Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 AGN, Debian 11.7 Xfce


I did some more trouble-shooting and found a better solution:

* Dell Latitude E6520 used as desktop/admin on SOHO network:

2023-05-06 13:51:42 root@laalaa ~
# cat /etc/debian_version;uname -a;dpkg-query -W xfce4;lspci|grep Centrino
Linux laalaa 5.10.0-22-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.178-3 (2023-04-22) x86_64 GNU/Linux
xfce4	4.16
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)

* Default Setup/CMOS/NVRAM settings:

      + Wireless
        + Wireless Switch
        |    WWAN           checked
        |    WLAN           checked
        |    Bluetooth      checked
        +  Wireless Device Enable
             WWAN           checked
             WLAN           checked
             Bluetooth      checked

*  Network Manager settings:

    Xfce panel
    -> right click NetworkManager Applet
    -> Edit Connections
    -> Wi-Fi
    -> wifi.tracy.holgerdanske.com
    -> gear (Edit the selected  connection)

                Connect automatically with priority 0
                SSID wifi.tracy.holgerdanske.com
                Device wlp3s0
            Wi-Fi Security
                Security WPA & WPA2 Personal
                Password ********
                Method None
            IPv4 Settings
                Method Automatic (DHCP)
            IPv6 Settings
                Method Automatic

Now when I boot and login, Wi-Fi connects automatically.  :-)
