Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 494380
ath5k never associates with an AP, unless first connected to wired eth0
Last modified: 2009-11-10 20:14:38 EST
Yeah, so it's a weird one, and it's driving me nutters. I never seem to get connected to an AP running PSA2, unless I first connect to wired eth0 (or, potentially, unless I first get a kernel stack trace). I'm willing to provide any sort of data you may need to help troubleshoot this issue.
This is a Thinkpad x31 with an Atheros wireless chipset.
My dmesg is attached. Please help! :)

And by PSA2 I mean WPA2 Personal, of course. Sorry.
Thanks for filling this bug.
Can you please provide the version of NM you use with
rpm -qa NetworkManager
and also /var/log/messages when you try to connect to your AP and need to activate the wired connection to do this. Thank you.
