I did an update for my fedora 28 and now I can’t connect to my WiFi. It can see it and tries to connect but then it ask for password which it already has. My other devices connect to WiFi with no problem. It was running fine until I did the update. Anyway to undo the update on my fedora 28 workstation.

If there was a kernel update, try choosing an earlier one from the boot list. What is the output of dnf history info?

I didn’t do def, I went to software like I do most time and install and rebooted. Which is better using def or from the software updates GUI.

I hate the auto spell on my ipad, def was suppose to be dnf.

I tried two earlier kernel’s and still the same problem. Now when I ran the live cd of fedora the WiFi connected just fine. Looks like I will reinstall the fedora 28 and will use dnf to do the updates instead of the GUI version.

Apparently I had used the live cd fedora 27 when my WiFi worked. Now I am using the live cd fedora 28 and the WiFi isn’t able to connect but can see the WiFi connection but it tries to connect and keeps popping up the screen for password and not connecting to WiFi.
