cannot connect to wireless - Pine64/Manjaro
#1
Question 
Hi All, I just received my Pine64 laptop. Nice machine!

Unfortunately, I have not been able to get internet access working. I have xfinity wifi, and I am connected successfully to it with a Windows laptop. I tried to enable WiFi using the Network Management icon on the right side of the taskbar. Networks shows the available Wifi access points correctly. When I click Connect, it displays "configuring I/F" for a few seconds, then displays "setting network address" for about a minute. Then it reports, "Connection failed", followed by "Wireless Interface (wlan0) IP configuration was unavailable".

I found a post that advised turning on "IPv4 required for this connection" in System Settings -> Connections. I tried this but got the same error.

Thanks for any advice. I am vi competent, and have no trouble changing settings in /etc/long/twisty/path/to/somewhere/* ...

(uname -a reports (in part): 5.7.2-1-MANJARO-ARM )
