Description Brian C. Huffman 2011-05-10 09:04:12 EDT
Description of problem: I have a Dell Latitude D630 laptop. After resume, NetworkManager does not reconnect even though I have the autoconnect option checked in settings. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): NetworkManager-0.8.999-1.fc15.i686 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. close laptop lid 2. open laptop lid 3. no reconnect Actual results: no reconnect Expected results: reconnect Additional info: I do have a hidden ESSID. I don't know if that matters or not.

Created attachment 501557 [details] dmesg output on resume I've attached the output of dmesg from after resuming when I opened the lid. Could it have something to do with the iwl3945 message toward the bottom? Thanks!

I changed the title of this bug after realizing that the network will not start automatically on boot up either. And after testing with a different network that does not hide the ESSID, I have concluded that it will not automatically connect to a network with a hidden ESSID (broadcast off).

close https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=707434 as duplicate of this bug?
Comment 4 Brian C. Huffman 2011-06-03 06:42:36 EDT
I'm not sure if they're duplicates or not. The other reporter claims to not be able to connect at all. I can connect manually, but on reboot or resume from suspend, it will not connect automatically.

noted. f15-gnome seems to be autoconnecting the wifi after reboot as of last few days. not sure what triggered it but currently running: NetworkManager-1:0.8.9997-4.git20110620.fc15 (x86_64) gnome-settings-daemon-3.0.1-6.fc15 (x86_64) (f15-kde wifi still wont connect)
Comment 6 Jirka Klimes 2011-06-28 04:20:06 EDT
Auto-connection feature to hidden SSIDs is added to 0.8.9997-4.git20110620.fc15in bug 707406. There is an issue with NetworkManager-1:0.8.9997-4.git20110620.fc15 and KDE though, that's handled in bug 716591 and bug 716527. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 707406 ***
