Description Steve Ward 2003-10-07 01:51:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031003 Description of problem: Currently the GUI tool does not support "shared key" configurations for 802.11b networks. It is possible to enter the appropriate values in the sysconfig area and have the appropriate action taken. It does not appear possible to make the GUI tool accept this format. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): redhat-config-network-1.3.6-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Try to configure a WLAN card to run on a "shared key only" AP. Actual Results: only generates appropriate script for use on "public" AP. Expected Results: Should generate script usable to configure "shared key" encryption Additional info:

Unbelievable. I just spent COUNTLESS HOURS looking for a way to establish a connection to my base station (which is configured to use Shared WEP key). I finally stumbled upon a web page <http://www.cs.cornell.edu/~scs49/install_linux.html> which pointed to this ancient post <http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-beta-list/2003-July/msg00848.html> containing the configuration information I needed to get Shared WEP working. Please either fix the UI of system-config-network to support this option, or discontinue its use in favor of something like NetworkManager <http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/> (which already seems to ship with FC5).

Thanks Daniel, it works. I can't wait to see some enhanced network managment tool because system-config-network really lack for some important features.
