Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1016970
wired ethernet is Off by default on F20 beta TC2
Last modified: 2015-06-29 08:35:37 EDT
Description of problem: When booting Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-20-Beta-TC2.iso from USB stick media (livecd-tools or dd) the desktop appears, and wired networking is not enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every boot from live media.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Created install media.
2. Ensure a working wired ethernet connection is in place.
3. Boot the computer from the media.
4. Check network status.
Go to Network icon in Gnome settings, find the Wired connection is Off. Change it from Off to On, and now I'm connected to the network.
If the cable is plugged in, by default the livemedia should make the connection active.

This might be a hardware specific problem, I tried the same image on my bare metal and network works fine out of the box.
Confirmed, I am also facing this issue @ 3.12.5-302.fc20.x86_64
what are the contents of whatever ifcfg files are in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ on the livecd?
what does "nmcli con show configured" output?
I have the same problem. My wired network adapter is named "em1", maybe that is a reason.
With the help of https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/38712/how-do-i-get-my-wired-network-connection-to-connect-by-default/ I found, that the "connect automatically" was not active.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
We might have finally found the reason for this in bug 1212009. You might want to follow that one.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
