Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 224329
NetworkManager removes all network access and fails on both wired and wireless network access
Last modified: 2016-06-07 18:45:06 EDT
NetworkManager fails to obtain any network address. If I start NetworkManager when the wired
interface already has a dhcp address it removes the IP and never requests or obtains another address
for that interface.
If I request access to a WEP wireless network I can enter the full hex password, I can enter the password
or the password prefixed with s: and it will never join the network. The password is correct for macosx
and Windows are perfectly happy to join the same network using these credentials.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every single version of NetworkManager I have ever tried.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use NetworkManager
2.NetworkManager will strip any IP the computer has and refuse to provide any network access
NetworkManager removes network access.
NetworkManager should make accessing networks as seamless as macosx does
The dhcdbd service was not running. Why NetworkManager does not start this service if it is essential I
have no idea...
