  • Linux Lite: 5.8 64bit

  • CPU: Dual Core Intel Core2 Duo L9300

  • MEMORY: 8Gb
I need help to establish a WiFi connection with my Lenovo ThinkPad x200s on Linux Lite.

All available WiFi networks are detected and I can click on my home network to connect to it. I'm then asked for the network authentication. After a few seconds of connecting the authentication window pops up again with the password already filled correctly. This loop repeats a few times before the whole process is aborted.

Useful Informations:
  • on Windows the WiFi adapter works with every tested network
  • I can successfully connect to the WiFi hotspot of my OnePlus 7 Pro
  • various changes on my router didn't help (e.g. disabling 5GHz frequency, enabling 802.11b, choose shorter WiFi password without special characters, ...)

System Information:
  • Lenovo ThinkPad x200s with Linux Lite 5.8 and stock BIOS
  • CPU: Dual Core Intel Core2 Duo L9300
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Wifi Card: Intel WiFi Link 5300 (Full Size)
  • Router: AVM FritzBox 7490 (in a WiFi Mesh with multiple FRITZ!Repeater 2400)

I'm not very experienced with Linux and kindly ask to provide required terminal commands for additional information to solve the problem.
