Endless cycle of asking for WPA passphrase

Hi folks, recently migrated from BSD.

I've just finished installing F15 on my venerable Inspiron 600m (LXDE spin). Currently networking is working correctly if I use a hard line, but I cannot get my wireless to connect.

Chipset is Intel PRO/Wireless 2100. Firmware package is installed, according to yum.

When I try to connect using the gui, the little circle icon spins for a while and then it asks for my WPA passphrase. When I enter it it seems to consider connecting for a while and then just asks for my password again. This happens forever and so far I have not been able to connect wirelessly.

Please help!

Wow... feel like a moron.

Rebooting fixed it. Looks like the NW session was timing out and wouldn't clear its status until I did a power cycle.

Didn't even think to try rebooting since this isn't windows, lol.

Re: Endless cycle of asking for WPA passphrase

Probably this would have worked too (no reboot needed)
systemctl restart NetworkManager.service
Also try to confirm that your wpa_supplicant service is set to run too
