Debian 10 wifi connection

Hello, I am having a wifi problem with Debian 10. I can connect to the 5GHz at home (only when very close) but I cannot connect to the 2.4GHz at all. When I try to connect to the 2.4GHz it just keeps asking for the password. I have also taken the laptop to my university and it will connect to the university's wifi, but only in specific buildings. I'm just wondering if there is a way to increase the range at home for the 5GHz and somehow connect to the 2.4GHz? Thanks.

My network controller is:
01:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

Side note: I could connect to the 2.4GHz during the installation of Debian 10 but after the installation I cannot!

I had so many similar experiences that I don't know where to start ^^

Can you give us the output of the following commands ?
Code:
$ uname -a
# lsmod
There's a chance that your card is stuck on a specific channel. Since 5ghz channels are wider that would explain why it partially works I guess.

Maybe the NetworkManager log can help us :
Code:
# journalctl -u NetworkManager
Can you disable NetworkManager and try non graphical options described here : https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse ?
Code:
# systemctl stop NetworkManager

These may help.

The log you provided seems to be OK, there are only two points bothering me :
Oct 08 17:35:41 debian NetworkManager[558]: <info> [1570570541.6790] dns-mgr: Writing DNS information to /sbin/resolvconf Oct 08 17:35:41 debian NetworkManager[558]: Too few arguments. Oct 08 17:35:41 debian NetworkManager[558]: Too few arguments.
There's a chance thats resolvconf gets improperly configurated.
Oct 08 17:35:31 debian NetworkManager[558]: <warn> [1570570531.4824] keyfile: load: "/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876": failed to load connection: File permissions (10064>
That could be the reason for the persistent password prompt.

To which AP were you connected when you extracted this log ? Was it on your 5Ghz home network ? If it's the case can you provide the same log after trying to connect to the 2.4Ghz ?

Yes it was on the 5Ghz sorry about that here is after trying to connect to the 2.4Ghz.

Code:

The problem comes from the association phase.

what are the output of the following commands when not associated to the AP (with your AP in range) :
Code:
# iwlist wlp1s0 scan
# iwlist wlp1s0 freq
And eventually :
Code:
# ls -l /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
# cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
A random guess would be that there's a locale/region config problem. It was working during the installation because the wireless region was properly set.

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels the problem could only happen on en 2.4ghz band if your AP is on channel 12 or 13. So if your AP is on a lower channel the problem is somewhere else.

Sorry I'm still learning Linux thanks for being patient. Here are the iwlist commands.

Code:
sudo iwlist wlp1s0 scan
wlp1s0    Scan completed :

It looks like you're in linux driver hell ^^' we will figure out what's the problem (we can go really deep in the analysis since its a fully open driver) but if you need a fully operationnal wireless network quickly you should aim for a wireless usb dongle with a known good compatibilty with linux. Those dongles are usually cheap enough to be a convenient workarround. I'm only saying this because I know hardware compatibilty problems are the major reason for people leaving linux, so if it's too much trouble for you just go for a workarround while we fix things.

You've only performed half of the commands I asked, can you give us the output of
Code:
# ls -l /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
# cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
There are many things people did out there that could solve your problem, but you would have to try a lot and since you're not a linux veteran that could be hard.
What is your laptop's brand and model ? Maybe I can focus on people who reported to have the same hardware as you.

In order to properly pinpoint the problem without relying on random guesses we would need a deeper log level.
Can you edit '/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf' and add the following (or replace existing)
[logging]
level=DEBUG
Then run the following command
Code:
# systemctl restart NetworkManager
Then try to connect to the 2.4Ghz AP and run the log command again to give us the output
Code:
# journalctl -u NetworkManager

Sorry about that,

Code:
ls -l /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22 Oct  7 23:44 /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
Code:
cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/hug2g376876
system-ca-certs=false
What do you mean by Driver Hell? What's wrong? and it is a Purism Librem 13 laptop found here: https://puri.sm/products/librem-13/

The new log after editing /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf is to long to post it won't let me post it
