Wi-Fi not connecting after second boot

Hi everyone!

When I was setting up my Manjaro installation and on its first boot, Wi-Fi is able to connect fine. I just press connect, enter the password, and it connects. However, on my next start, it says, No secrets were provided. Here is my inxi -F:

journalctl -k | grep -i iwlwifi also says that that firmware seems to be loading fine:

I also do not have any other OS installed on this computer. Though this is after moving from Ubuntu 21.04 to Manjaro. When I was using Ubuntu, Wi-Fi was working fine and one the first boot Wi-Fi was working fine so I do not believe that it is a hardware issue. Please let me know if I need to provide any more information!


Hi @Newo ,
Welcome to the forum.
Maybe, you just look into the forum. I found a similar problem in the following post:
Intel AX200 only WIFI working

Hope this help, regards

Hi @j8a! I looked at that post that you sent. It seems like the solution was not found.

I will try installing XFCE to see if it’s a KDE issue.

After changing to XFCE, I have confirmed that this issue is only present on KDE. Should I raise this issue with them?
