Description mfs-it 2013-10-30 11:04:14 EDT
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)

How reproducible:
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

Actual results:
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.

Expected results:
Being able to select the proper saved configuration. Both configurations ("foo base" and "foo repeater") should show up when both signals are at reach.

Additional info:
Fedora 20.
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.
