Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486877
don't send blank passwords to NM
Last modified: 2009-03-08 15:33:47 EDT
I can successfully login to some WPA2-protected networks with latest stable (NetworkManager-0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10). Moving to updates-testing (0.7.0-2.git20090207.fc10) that unfortunately fails. Up-/downgrading NetworkManager and NetworkManager-glib makes the difference.
PS: I use KDE and it's knetworkmanger together with the NetworkManager-core.
I have slightly different problem. I cannot connect to any hidden wpa/wpa2 network. I updated to the latest
and as long as the network doesn't broadcast its ssid I cannot connect to it. NetworkManager asks all the time about wep key. When the network broadcasts its ssid there is no problem with the connection and wpa works fine.
Both WPA2-networks I tested with also have disabled SSID. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to try with enabled broadcast. So your description might be the same for me.
Works fine after downgrading to 0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.x86_64 again.
What drivers are people using where NM will not connect to hidden SSID networks? What kernel versions?
and the network is wpa2 with aes encrypted.
iwlagn-driver with Intel 4965AGN hardware
works fine with NetworkManager-0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.x86_64
doesn't work with 0.7.0.98-1.git20090225.fc10
In my case when I try to connect to the hidden network NM is asking about a WEP key, although the real key is a 63bit ASCII pass phrase. NM see the encryption but cannot determin the type/lenght of the key.
This is a strange behaviour from NM. Right now everything with NM is ok. I have
I also tried this it with my f11 box (see specs above) it works with it, too. The only change that I did was switching on the ssid on my router and then swiching it back off. Now everything seems to be back to normal: no ssid broadcast and NM doesn't have any problems with it either.
I've not updated any packages on the boxes and this bug doesn't showup now.

knetworkmanager has a bug where it passes blank passphrases along with the connection, which wasn't actually allowed before but now breaks with the NM update. Will update knetworkmanager to fix that.

Koji builds to try while waiting for the official update:
Let me know if they work.
upgraded to latest NetworkManager (f10, updates-testing) and used the above mentioned knetworkmanager-build. Works fine on x86_64. Thanks a lot!
It works fine here, too. Why I didn't see the bug anymore? Except for the day I experienced it, I couldn't reproduce it after that.
