[Bug 1436891] Re: Cannot connect to any WiFi access point which runs wireless-N


Darren Peets, the next step is to fully commit bisect from kernel 3.16
to 3.19 in order to identify the last good kernel commit, followed
immediately by the first bad one. This will allow for a more expedited
analysis of the root cause of your issue. Could you please do this
following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBisection ?

Please note, finding adjacent kernel versions is not fully commit

Thank you for your understanding.

  Cannot connect to any WiFi access point which runs wireless-N

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When attempting to connect to a WiFi access point with N wireless, two popup messages appear:
  Connection 'SSID' deactivated.
  The WiFi network could not be found

  Expected behaviour:  Connects to network.

  Minimal demonstration:  connect to a WiFi access point by both LAN and
  WiFi B/G.  Log in to access point, change it to B/G/N.  Connection is
  lost, cannot be re-established until reverted to B/G.

  Previous troubleshooting located here:

  Description:    Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
  Release:        15.04
  linux-firmware 1.143

  Can connect normally (with N) from 14.04.2 and 14.10 live CDs.  Can
  connect in 15.04 if and only if N deactivated in access point.
