Description of problem:
I am using wpa security, Network manager connects on power on to wan, on resume the wireless does not reconnect, network manager applett shows no wan interface
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
wlan should have resumed
running the following command will often wake up my wlan after resuming
[root@sydney ~]# /etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop && rmmod iwl3945 && sleep 1 && modprobe iwl3945 && /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start
Can you replicate this with the 126.96.36.199-91.fc7 kernel?
I have already, didn't work. Or should I say it works sometimes, very
intermittent. I would like to semi close this bug as I am trying to upgrade to
Fedora 8 Beta 2 and wont be able to do any testing, maybe reopen if its still a
bug in 8?
Is this still a bug in current fedora 8 kernels?
188.8.131.52-23.fc8 resumes wlan just fine *AS LONG* as the configuration is set via
ifcfg-wlan0. NetworkManager still cannot restore its configuration on wake up
for me (but that's another bug). This is with Dell D630.
I see though one glitch with 184.108.40.206-23.fc8: when I use the killswitch, "rmmod
iwl4965 && modprobe iwl4965" is required to reenable the wireless interface.
Closing as RAWHIDE...please feel free to open separate bugs for the issues
mentioned in comment 4 and comment 5.
