Description Saggi Mizrahi 2013-10-04 10:56:07 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to f20 my dlink usb adapter stopped being recognized as a wireless adapter and is only recognized as an Ethernet adapter.

Since iwconfig recognizes it I assume it's a NetworkManager problem.

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2013-10-04 16:28:20 EDT
What does 'iw dev enp0s20u4 info' say?

Also, what does "journalctl -b | grep WEXT" say?

Next, what does "iwgetid --protocol" say?
Comment 3 Saggi Mizrahi 2013-10-04 18:16:11 EDT
$ iw dev enp0s20u4 info
command failed: No such device (-19)

$ journalctl -b | grep WEXT
Oct 04 17:10:03 funkotron NetworkManager[773]: <info> WEXT support is enabled

$ iwgetid --protocol
<no output>

cb-rhbugz@fishzet.co.uk, what does your device report for:

iwconfig wlan0

Also, everyone please run:

cat /sys/class/net/wlan0/uevent

and report the output.  Thanks!
Comment 8 Dan Williams 2013-10-16 13:30:44 EDT
I believe I've fixed the problem upstream, the fix will appear in the next snapshot.
Comment 9 cb-rhbugz 2013-10-16 13:32:31 EDT
I get:

$ cat /sys/class/net/wlan0/uevent
Comment 10 cb-rhbugz 2013-11-03 17:30:20 EST
FWIW, this horrible script can be used to work around the problem.


rm -Rf /tmp/nmhack
mkdir /tmp/nmhack
echo 'DEVTYPE=wlan' > /tmp/nmhack/uevent
grep INTERFACE /sys/class/net/wlan0/uevent >> /tmp/nmhack/uevent
grep IFINDEX /sys/class/net/wlan0/uevent >> /tmp/nmhack/uevent
mount --bind /tmp/nmhack/uevent /sys/class/net/wlan0/uevent

systemctl restart NetworkManager
