Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 160727
NetworkManager panel icon says connection is to 'Unknown'
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
Description of problem:
NetworkManager tooltip shows...
Wireless network connection to '(unknown)' (100%)
I am connected to ECS-WLAN which I picked from a list, in fact I'm writing this
bug report over the resulting link, so it's definitely working. But
NetworkManager's panel icon describes it as "unknown", in FC3 it said "ECS-WLAN".
The pop-up/ drop-down menu doesn't show a bullet next to ECS-WLAN any more either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"ECS-WLAN" Nickname:"ipw2100"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: 00:07:85:B4:08:A3
Bit Rate=11 Mb/s Tx-Power:off
Retry:on RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality=100/100 Signal level=-43 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:56 Missed beacon:0
So the OS still knows this is ECS-WLAN (and indeed, how could it not, without
this information it can't associate to the AP).
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
I am the original reporter.
Seems to be fixed in Fedora 7 which I'm running here. So marking resolved
WORKSFORME. Please change this if there is a better resolution for bugs that are
now fixed but the fix isn't specifically known.
I still occasionally see some NetworkManager problems but not this one. If the
problems recur in Fedora 8 after it is released, then I will report them against
