Boot, log in 2. NM tries to connect 3. Actual results: No connection is made, NM asks for key Expected results: Connection succeeds, no further assistance necessary Additional info: 0b:02.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:24:07 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle. Changing version to '11'. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 3 Matthias Runge 2009-06-11 09:00:20 EDT
Seems to be no problem, if using kernel 2.6.30.....
Comment 4 Josep 2009-07-26 12:08:19 EDT
Same problem. I have not yet been able to establish a connection to a WPA router. The logs look the same as shown in the attached file. I have no trouble with a WPA2 router, though. It worked flawlessly on Fedora 10. Additional info: 0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
Comment 5 Matthias Runge 2009-08-17 03:29:01 EDT
Seems to be fixed with the 2.6.30 (testing) kernel from koji.
Comment 6 Dan Williams 2009-11-11 12:33:01 EST
Yeah, 2.6.30 (F11) kernels work pretty well with a dual-band ath5k for me with WPA-PSK as well. Closing... Final diagnosis is a kernel driver bug.
