Nm goes haywire when connected wlan turns on/off WEP
Last modified: 2008-05-06 11:32:21 EDT
Description of problem:
If you switch WEP on or off on an accesspoint that a laptop running
NetworkManager is connected to, NM does not understand what is going on (at
all), and has to be manually restarted/killed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to a wireless network using NetworkManager
2. Use the accesspoints web-interface (or otherwise) to turn on WEP
3. The wireless computer running NetworkManager looses all connections, display
false data, etc. until
"/etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart" is ran and NetworkManagerInfo is killed.
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 do not exactly remember what happened back then, but i tried it again
(activating/deactivating WPA), and network manager (on fc6) wasn't happy with
it. Wether the problem would have sorted it self out if i had waited enough or
if it would had continued to pop up (pop under that is...) password dialogs when
i tried to connect, i don't know. But a restart solved it...
