open wifi network connection error

Wed Feb 15, 2023 12:01 pm
I have a problem connecting to an unsecured open wifi network at my university. We connect to this network and we have to log in through a web page and our university email and password. I confirm that it has no security, it is completely open.
I can connect to other wifi networks, so the network card works correctly. And I have tried it on different laptops (older and some brand new) and it gives the same error.
When I try to connect with Linux with KDE I get the following error: "802-11-wireless-security.key-mgmt: the access point does not support psk but the parameter requires it".
This is happening with any distribution with KDE: Debian 11, Kubuntu 22.04 and 22.10, etc with Plasma 5.24.7.
With other distributions without KDE I don't have this problem and I connect without problems, for example Ubuntu 22.10 Gnome.
For this reason, I think the problem is KDE asking for some kind of security that this wifi network does not provide.
Any solution?
