Unable to connect Nexus 5 to wifi

Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:39 pm
Hello!!

I've always been a huge plasma fan and so happy that there is now a mobile version available!

I have it loaded on my nexus 5 but the problem I keep running into is unable to connect it to wifi.

When I pull down the top menu and select Networks, I'm able to see that the WiFi square is highlighted but it doesnt appear to search for a network below, it is just blank. Within the Networking menu I hit the Setting button and it opens the Connections application and has a white square in the top left hand corner with no options when clicked on.

I attempted to access my nexus via terminal of laptop and physical USB connection, but the device is not recognized as a adb device.

Any advice would be wonderful! Thank you!

Can you do this from your phone konsole?

Code: Select all
sudo ln -s /system/etc/wifi/ /etc/wifi


And then reboot?

When I attempted this and rebooted, the lock screen would come up but after unlocking the screen would go black momentary then go back to the lock screen.

After that I reformatted the cache and userdata, then re-ran the pm-flash script and now I have wifi access when I pull down the top menu and access networks.

Thank you!

Generally this happens when you enter wrong password by mistake.. and you don't need to reflash completely.

I had to reflash my nexus for alternative reasons(I messed up my password) and afterwards I'm back to the same issue of not being able to connect to wifi.

The symbolic link already exist between the two files.

I'm not able to connect my Nexus 5 to wifi either. I've tried with both "neon" and "arch". When I goto network settings, I just see two empty squares and the airplane icon, but no way to check for wireless access points.

I'm also unable to detect my device via adb either.

I've also tried plugging an external usb wifi and rebooting, but I still can't get any wifi.
