Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138293
system-config-network not noticing wifi devices, think's they're wired, no way to set WEP keys
Last modified: 2008-04-03 14:01:59 EDT
Description of problem:
system-config-network does not correctly pick up wireless
devices, and does not have the ability to set WiFi encoding
setup and keys.
This _did_ work on FC3test2... and the same version of
system-config-network. Which means that the problem is happening
earlier than system-config-network and only manifesting
itself when system-config-network is run.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean install of FC3test3
2. Open system-config-network
3. Try to config a WiFi device!
There is no ability to set WiFi encoding
There should be a way to set WiFi encoding
Worked under FC3test2.
you may add:
to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<wifi device name>
to the ifcfg for the device worked. I can now configure WiFi
So, the bug now is "why didn't the network setup wizard correctly
assign the WiFi device as "Wireless", rather than as "Ethernet"?
Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
I think we can close the bug out.
Since this works fine in the current FC, I will set this bug
to "CURRENTRELEASE" and closed.
