Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1024910
Unable to select different wireless connections with the same SSID
Last modified: 2014-03-03 18:15:21 EST
Description of problem:
I'm unable to select saved configurations for a wireless connection with same SSID but different BSSID
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(afaik this issue was there with any version of kde-plasma-nm)
Have a wireless network called "foo".
Have a repeater of the original signal that shares the same SSID, "foo".
Store two different configurations: "foo base" and "foo repeater": these configs are identical, except that each one is bound to a specific BSSID
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have two signal with same SSID, different BSSID
2. Save two different configs
3. Only one of them shows up in kde-plasma-nm
I'm unable to select a BSSID using the saved configurations. I have to edit the configuration that kde-plasma-nm randomly chooses for me if I want it to connect to this or that BSSID. Each time.
Being able to select the proper saved configuration. Both configurations ("foo base" and "foo repeater") should show up when both signals are at reach.
This feature has always been available before kde-plasma-nm, so I regard it as a regression.
I just pushed the fix to upstream git repository. You can try to compile plasma-nm from git or wait until we do a new build with this fix.
kde-plasma-nm-0.9.3.1-6.fc20 seems to fix it.
