Spent nearly 2 days trying to fix my WiFi card not connecting to my network on Manjaro. Had to learn the basics of CLI network debugging, did some kernel changes, used many different tools and methods. The reason? I swapped the two halves of my passphrase...


I’ve never ever seen a single error mentioning the passphrase could be wrong. Only absolutely misleading messages like "No carrier". I’ve learned a lot, so it wasn’t a waste of time, but it was a hardcore hair-pulling experience.
