I'm using a thinkpad x131e but I use a alfa 036NHR USB. I plug it in and it works fine, no errors and network manager picks up the different networks the ALFA finds. But when I click a network to join that my ALFA found it doesn't work. It just loads and keeps asking me to type the password in over and over again like nothing is happening. My laptop wifi card is wlan0 but my ALFA is wlan1. HOpefully this post was clear. Reason for this is because my network signal is 25% with the laptop card but 70% with ALFA.
