I asked a question and I received this answer: I am guessing when you try to join an encrypted access point, it fails? According to https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/u.. . hardware encryption is broken. Until you are able to configure encryption through wpa_supplicant, try disabling encryption in your router. You may whitelist MAC addresses in the router as a security measure for the time-being. Does it mean that for the time there is no other option, mean that there is something wrong with Fedora 21 itself (I can not disable encryption, the router is owned by the isp and it looks that encryption can not be disabled). Any answer would be much appreciated. Greetings,

I have a machine with fedora out of Fedora-Live-Scientific_KDE-x86_64-21-5 without access to internet. I got an usb wifi to connect to internet but I am not able to make it work. The result of >lsusb is: Bus 001 Device 020: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter The result of >lsusb -t is: |__ Port 2: Dev 20, If 0, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=rt2800usb, 12M I have another machine with access to internet (on windows). I am totally newbie in linux so any help would be much appreciated.
