Description Alex Chernyakhovsky 2008-08-13 10:37:03 EDT
Description of problem:
NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.4.svn3675.fc9.x86_64 has an issue when connecting to certain networks. It properly connects, but instead of showing the signal strength and reporting the connection to the proper ESSID, it shows no bars and reports a successful connection to ESSID '(none)'. 

It seems that this problem only occurs when connecting to an 802.11N network.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on Linux computer with 802.11b/g/n wireless
2. Use NetworkManager to connect to 802.11b/g/n network
3. Observe NetworkManager
Actual results:

NetworkManager reports successful connection to network '(none)'.

Expected results:

NetworkManager reports successful connection to proper ESSID.

Additional info:

iwconfig shows the proper ESSID, as does the list of wireless networks in NetworkManager. It is only the main display of signal strength and the tooltips that do not work.

A number of fixes have gone into NetworkManager in the last few months that may fix this issue for you.  Can you re-test with latest NM from F-9 updates and see if you can reproduce this issue?  If so, let me know exactly which version of NetworkManager is being used; you can find this out by running 'rpm -q NetworkManager' from a Terminal.
