Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135954
RFE: When adding new hardware, hardware type Wireless lists ethernet cards
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
When you try to add a new hardware device, a "Choose Hardware Type"
dialog box pops up and gives you a choice of Wireless, Ethernet,
Modem, ISDN, and Token Ring.
Each of those selections, *except* Wireless, has a list of devices
of just that type.
Wireless and Ethernet have the *exact* same list, which does not
contain the wireless card I'm using (prism54). So, if this is
intentional then I guess the bug would be the omission of "Intersil
Corporation Intersil ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette]" as Kudzu calls it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is true for both Fedora Core 2 and Core 3 test 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gnome, logged in a root, etc. Select System Tools|Network Device
2. Click Configure (Network Configuration window opens)
3. Click Hardware tab
4. Click New button
5. Select "Wireless" Hardware type and clock OK
6. Look through drop down list
There is no entry for prism54 chipsets (Intersil 3890)
There should be an entry for prism54 (Intersil 3890)
Kudzu finds the chip, but rebooting to detect it is a bit inconvienient.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
