Description Xander D Harkness 2007-01-25 05:07:20 EST
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):

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
NetworkManager removes network access.

Expected results:
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...
