Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426518
wifi card does'nt get ip adresse at boot
Last modified: 2008-03-10 09:53:27 EDT
Description of problem:
After last kernel update (184.108.40.206-85.fc8) wifi is blocked at boot, it just
gives a time out error and no ip adress is assignated but when system booted,
using service network restart wifi works fine so problem is just related to boot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
220.127.116.11-2 with kernel 18.104.22.168-85.fc8
Steps to Reproduce:
Reassigning to the kernel since I doubt this is firmware package related...
Please attach the contents of /var/log/messages, as well as the output
of 'dmesg', 'lsmod', and 'lspci -n'. Does updating to the latest available F8
kernel change the situation?

content of dmesg

that's for lspci -n
I'm sorry things have changed since I posted this bug but situation is the same
here are some infos I've collected, hope it can help :
Even with NetworkManager the connexion doesn't always work but iwl is loaded and
Unloading and reloading iwl3945 sometimes makes the connexion work.
I've recently re-installed the system, with the original kernel it works
perfectly but after update everything's broken so I too think the bug is related
dmesg, lsmod and lspci -n results in attachment.

Here is the content of /var/log/messages
It looks like you are associating successfully, but then you are getting
unencrypted frames when you are expecting encryption. One might expect this
behavior if the WEP key is set but the AP is not using encryption.
Please try executing the following command (as root):
iwconfig wlan0 key off
Does that change the situation for you? Also, please try the latest available
Please post your results here...thanks!
Since I've update to kernel 22.214.171.124-12 the problem seems to be solved. Wifi
works well with NetworkManager and WPA PSK encryption, also it connects at
session oppening. I hope it will continue.
thank you for your great work on the fedora kernel.
