Description Tim Taiwanese Liim 2004-04-11 13:13:04 EDT
Description of problem:
When installation with FTP/HTTP and with 802.11 cards, should either
auto detect ESSID or allow user supply ESSID.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CD boot image from
ftp://ftp.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/test/1.91/i386/os/images/boot.iso

How reproducible:
Always.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD made from said boot.iso.
2. Choose FTP/HTTP as Installation Method.
3. Choose Orinoco card as Networking Device (I'm using D-link 
   DWL-650, an Intersil PRISM2 11Mbps wireless adapter).
4. How do I enter ESSID?  Auto detection is even better.
   On an installed system, I can use "iwconfig" to specify ESSID
   if necessary.  On Fedora Core 1, sometimes the ESSID was auto
   detected.
  
Actual results:
   No way to sepcify ESSID.

Expected results:
   Either user can specify ESSID or auto detection of ESSID.

Additional info:
   It could be replated to my previous bug report "Bug #120591", 
   where the incoming network packets are dropped.  If we already
   have auto detection of ESSID, this enhancement can be killed.

Reassigning to anaconda as well (again, installation stuff).

Read ya, Phil

Wireless cards are not currently supported for installation (this
being one of the reasons :)
