Description Tim Taiwanese Liim 2004-04-11 17:13:04 UTC
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

How reproducible:

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
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.

Wireless cards are not currently supported for installation (this
