Description of problem:
Network Manager detects Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless on Thinkpad T60
(2623P2U) as a ethernet device. Therefore, unable to setup the wireless device.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC7t4
2. after install and first-boot, open networkmanager
"wmaster0" device is setup, but as a ethernet device. So, user is unable to set
SSID, key and such.
The device should be detects as a wireless device, so user can set SSID and key,
Try delete the device and redetect, same result.
see smolt record
NetworkManager does no detection, it only goes based on what hal and the kernel
return. Trying hal.
Any new on this? F7 is coming and this one seem untouch? I tried the latest
rawhide Live and the problem is still there.....
Try this again on F7 release actual. It's working now
