Description Ivan Virgili 2008-01-03 17:27:36 EST
Description of problem:

Card detects wireless network, makes connection and works "fine" (see bug
382781), but the led does not blink during network search, data transmission, etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

rt61pci-firmware - 1.2-4.noarch
Comment 1 Ivan Virgili 2008-01-03 17:33:46 EST
Power led is on, as it should be
Comment 2 Ivan Virgili 2008-01-06 14:50:00 EST
I filed this bug under the firmware, because I am not sure if it depends on this
or the kernel.
Comment 3 John W. Linville 2008-01-23 14:24:06 EST
I can not recreate this with current upstream wireless code.  Please try the 
F8 kernels here:


These contain essentially the same rt2x00 driver code as upstream.  Can you 
recreate the problem with those kernels?
Comment 4 Ivan Virgili 2008-01-23 15:37:16 EST
I installed
I restarted my laptop (using that kernel of course), but the problem persists.
The card is a GIGABYTE GN-WMKG
Let me know if you need more info.
Comment 5 Ivan Virgili 2008-01-26 17:40:58 EST
I have just installed kernel and still no luck.
Comment 6 Ivan Virgili 2008-03-01 18:37:29 EST
Just updated from kernel to kernel
The link led flashes during scanning (good sign, it never did it in the past)
and I presume at this point it would flash during transmission.
Unfortunately the device does not manage to detect any wireless networks (even
if wireless router is less than 50cm far from it).
I will do some checks and update you on this, but as far as the led problem is
concerned you seem to be heading in the right direction to solve it.
Comment 7 John W. Linville 2008-03-04 14:16:55 EST
Since you (correctly) files another bug for the new problem, I'll go ahead and 
close this one on the basis of comment 6...thanks!
