User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
NetworkManager does not seem to support WPA connections at all. If one tells it to connect to an access point which supports only WPA, then it keeps prompting the user for an encryption key and gives no indication of why it is failing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to connect to WPA-encrypted wireless network
Actual Results: nm-applet just keeps prompting for WEP key over and over and never connects.
Expected Results: NetworkManager should support connecting to WPA/WPA2 networks. Or at the least, offer some indication to the user that this is not supported.
This is fixed in reawhide, right ?
I don't know, NetworkManager in development seems to be dependent on a huge pile
of other updates..
