Network Manager disconnects after initial connection
Last modified: 2008-10-20 10:53:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Basicaly Network Manager is not able to keep existing connection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Computer starts
2. Login to the user account
3. Network Manager asks about keyring password
4. Network Manager connects to the prefered network
5. Network Manager disconnects
6. need to select my prefered network manually
7. Network Manager connects
have to manualy choose a network
Network Manager doesn't disconnect from the network on initial connection
I use ipw3945 driver from freshrpms.net repository - I use this driver, because
iwl3945 shipped with Fedora7 doesn't work at all (why you have decided to ship
driver which doesn't work?)
on daily basis I use WPA network at work and WPA2 at home - so I assume it is
not network related issue.
as normal, network manager related issues are being ignored, but I can confirm,
that this issue hasn't been solved in Fedore 8 either.
although, iwl3945 works much better than on fedora 7, this issue is valid for
both iwl & ipw drivers. after initial connection it gets disconnected, then I
need to select a network manually or wait a while.

I posted this on fedoraforum.org and I was given the following code to
execute... I'm running a Gateway MX8738 laptop and I'm not sure if it's a
hardware problem or a software problem... but this is what happens...
1) Keyring is asked after login
2) NM logs into preferred AP
3) NM disconnects from AP after a while
4) NM tries to connect to the AP and cycles until it times out and there is no
connection ever made...
I forgot to add that when I reboot my computer it goes to
and hangs there until I do a hard shutdown...
WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK tested working with 18.104.22.168-28.fc8, NM svn4022.4.fc8, supplicant 0.5.10-6.fc8 with ipw2200 against a Linksys WRT54GC.
