Can't login to wifi, doesn't ask for password

I can't get wifi to work properly on my laptop. It finds networks just fine, so the adapter is working, but when I try to connect, it doesn't ask for the password, it just gives me an error message that a password is required. It happens when I try to connect to either of my home network (private and guest), as well as when I, just for testing, try to connect to the neighbor's networks.

I've tried using the LTS kernel, no difference.

I'm using Garuda LXQT, if that makes any difference.

The error I get:

Error name: net.connman.Error.PassPhraseRequired
Error message: Passphrase Required

So, it can see that a password is needed, but instead of asking for it, it just tells me that it needs it.

Edit your post please.

Are we all here to guess which network adapter you are using?




A little search couldve helped I guess :eyes:
