Description Bill Nottingham 2008-01-31 21:35:19 EST
Description of problem:

Wireless association fails with 2.6.24-9.fc9. iwl3945, WPA2-PSK. 
Both NM and raw usage of wpa_supplicant fail.

Works fine with the same userspace with 2.6.24-0.141.rc7.fc9. Haven't
tried in-between yet.

Lots of messages like:

Trying to associate with 00:13:10:a6:40:59 (SSID='xenomorph' freq=2447 MHz)
Associated with 00:13:10:a6:40:59

Authentication with 00:00:00:00:00:00 timed out.
No network configuration found for the current AP

Is this with or without disable_hw_scan?  Does setting that option the other 
way change the behavior?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2008-02-01 10:02:54 EST
With disable_hw_scan; will try without later today, as the AP is at home.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2008-02-01 21:13:00 EST
Without disable_hw_scan it works.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2008-02-04 00:56:59 EST
That being said, without disable_hw_scan, it's flaky, much in the same way that
F8 and F7 were without disable_hw_scan.
Comment 5 John W. Linville 2008-02-19 17:19:55 EST
FWIW, I'm running this kernel on a t60p now with WPA-PSK and it seems quite 

The AP has a slow (~10Mbps) back-end connection -- could the flakiness you 
observe be related to transfer speed?  Might there be other sources of RFI in 
your area?

Can you make any recommendations on how to recreate the conditions you are

Not specifically. It appears to be fixed in the 2.6.25-pre kernels we have in
