Description Nick Lamb 2005-06-16 21:46:11 UTC
Description of problem: NetworkManager tooltip shows... Wireless network connection to '(unknown)' (100%) I am connected to ECS-WLAN which I picked from a list, in fact I'm writing this bug report over the resulting link, so it's definitely working. But NetworkManager's panel icon describes it as "unknown", in FC3 it said "ECS-WLAN". The pop-up/ drop-down menu doesn't show a bullet next to ECS-WLAN any more either. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): NetworkManager-0.4-15.cvs20050404, NetworkManager-gnome-0.4-15.cvs20050404 iwconfig shows... wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"ECS-WLAN" Nickname:"ipw2100" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: 00:07:85:B4:08:A3 Bit Rate=11 Mb/s Tx-Power:off Retry:on RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off Link Quality=100/100 Signal level=-43 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:56 Missed beacon:0 So the OS still knows this is ECS-WLAN (and indeed, how could it not, without this information it can't associate to the AP).

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.

I am the original reporter. Seems to be fixed in Fedora 7 which I'm running here. So marking resolved WORKSFORME. Please change this if there is a better resolution for bugs that are now fixed but the fix isn't specifically known. I still occasionally see some NetworkManager problems but not this one. If the problems recur in Fedora 8 after it is released, then I will report them against that product.
