 This bug has been closed as the issue was fixed. Don't hesitate opening a
 new bug if it seems unlikely that this is the same problem. Before, you
 could not connect at all because hald did not find any wifi hardware. You
 are able to connect manually which indicates hald works as expected. No
 need to remove /etc/volatile.cache.
 If you file a bug *always* mention the image and installed packages used
 otherwise it is nearly *impossible* to help you. Please read:

 I *guess* connman is not installed on your image (Settings relies on
 connman to connect to a wifi network).

 Note: You should not use the settings UI to connect to wifi networks. As
 so many people experienced difficulties to connect to networks I had a
 deeper look into the connman network manager sources (settings heavily
 relies on this network manager to connect to any network). It became
 apparent that connman is far from being usable. It is at an early stage of

 The FSO team look at alternatives but that will take a while.
