Description Greg Huber 2007-01-15 17:00:02 UTC
Description of problem: IPW2200 Intel wireless driver fails to configure devive as wireless NetworkManager also fails to start and must be started manually. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora Core 6 (fully updated) Kernel 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 How reproducible: On a system x86_64 based system with an Intel wireless card installed, boot and attempt to configure interface Steps to Reproduce: 1.boot 2.run NetworkManager 3.or run system-configure-network Actual results: Device appears as and ethernet (wired) device. Expected results: The device should be recgonized as a wireless device. NetworkManager should popup and allow entries for the current network. Additional info: The device fails to work after attempting the following 1) forcing TYPE=Wireless in ifcfg-eth1 file. 2) replacing ipw2200 and ieee80211 drivers with current releases 3) updating firmware (/lib/firmware) 4) moving device from 'eth1' to 'wlan0' in ifcfg.wlan0 and modprobe.conf files This laptop was recently upgraded (clean install) from FC5. Under FC5 wireless networking was working prefectly.

I should have mentioned that I an using an Intel 2915ABG based mini-PCI card.
Comment 2 Daniel Riek 2007-01-18 03:04:20 UTC
What are the versions of the driver you updated to?
Comment 3 Greg Huber 2007-01-18 14:29:04 UTC
The drivers I currently have loaded are; ieee80211-1.2.16 ipw22000-1.2.1 Both were compilied from source. I also have firmware ipw2200-firmware-3.0-3 installed. I have not upgraded wpa_supplicant. Last night I tried installing the configuration files from the previous FC5 installation, no luck.
Comment 4 Greg Huber 2007-01-19 16:25:49 UTC
I just updated to the 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 kernel with no change. It still appears that I can see the networks but I can't connect to them.
Comment 5 Greg Huber 2007-01-30 15:24:06 UTC
Over the weekend I loaded the kernel from the FC5 backups and tried running it. Wireless still failed, but, when I went back to the 2.6.19-1.2895 kernel wireless started to work. So at this point it think that wireless within the kernel is working, but the initial detection of the wireless device still fails to properly detect and catorgize the device.

(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state) Hello, I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KernelBugTriage I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer maintained. Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a few days if there is no further information lodged. Thanks for using Fedora!
Comment 7 Greg Huber 2008-01-08 14:27:50 UTC
I have since moved on to Fedora 7 where everything seems to be working. Fedora 8 is not an option, yet... I see no reason this bug cannot be closed. Thank You.
