DHCP for wifi not working in Fedora 22, 21; ok in 20
Last modified: 2016-07-19 16:14:51 EDT
DHCP for wifi fails to get IPv4 address in Fedora 22 and 21. It works ok in 20.
This is 32-bit versions of Fedora 22, 21, 20 (multi-boot setup) using LXDE.
The wifi security is WPA & WPA2 Personal with a password.
If I manually configure the IP address, netmask, gateway, and DNS server,
it works ok.
DHCP works fine for me in Fedora 21 or 22. Please check that you have a DHCP server properly configured.
Can you get NetworkManager log showing a connection attempt for DHCP?
# journalctl -b -u NetworkManger
Created attachment 1080261 [details]
output of journalctl -b -u NetworkManager
On this computer, DHCP works fine for:
Fedora 20 (32-bit)
Fedora 19 (64-bit)
Fedora 17 (64-bit)
On another computer, DHCP works fine for:
Fedora 22 (64-bit)
Fedora 21 (64-bit)
Fedora 20 (64-bit)
Fedora 19 (32-bit)
Fedora 17 (32-bit)
So, I believe that my DHCP server is setup correctly.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
