Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238598
Can't associate with ESSID broadcast disabled
Last modified: 2007-12-17 13:13:47 EST
Description of problem:
If i disable the ESSID broadcast on my wireless router i can't associate. If i
enable it i can associate without problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):networkmanager
included in F7 test4 live cd.
Steps to Reproduce:
Which driver are you using, and a syslog file would be nice...
Created attachment 153892 [details]
driver rt2500pci from rt2x00
Same for me on FC7 t4 (yum update till now).
I am using D610 (ipw2200). Will attach syslog once I get back home.
This setup was working for me with NetworkManager on FC6 and I think RHEL5 also.
But broke in FC7 t4.
I can associate to the AP manually via wpa_supplicant and then dhclient for the
Dan/John, any ideas here?
Nothing immediately comes to mind. It is difficult to imagine what in the
kernel would affect both ipw2200 and rt2500pci.
I still have the same problem with livecd RC2 (ie kernel 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7).
I'm still seeing this with iwl3945 and Fedora 7 released version.
For me the problem is soved. Can i close the bug ?
