Description Tim Waugh 2004-07-28 11:18:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to take advantage of the WEP bits in anaconda, but I can't
seem to get it to work.

I have installed FC3t1 on this laptop and managed to get WEP working
with the orinoco-driven PCMCIA wifi card.  However, during install
(and if I try a new install) I can't persuade anaconda to use my key.

I choose NFS installation, and type in the ESSID and the encryption
key (10 hex digits, just as I put in the 'KEY=' line of ifcfg-eth0),
but it fails to get an IP address when using DHCP immediately after that.

I can see from the AP log that it hasn't been allowed in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot install image.
2. Choose NFS installation.
3. Tell it the wireless parameters.
Actual results:
Fails when trying to bring up network.

Committed something which should help a bit.  Should be in rawhide
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-07-29 06:46:47 EDT
Created attachment 102279 [details]

Nearly there, but it needs this patch too otherwise is_wireless_interface()
fails further on.

I've checked in that change.
