Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 504275
rt2860 fails to associate with Fritz!Box 7170 in mixed mode (WPA+WPA2)
Last modified: 2009-07-25 06:00:07 EDT
Description of problem:
I had big trouble connecting to the mentioned wlan router. After some googling I found that the trouble comes from the negotiation part in mixed mode. When setting the router to WPA2/AES only, I could connect successfully. The problem is reported on the net for other linux distributions (found some ubuntu forums posts..) so this is not fedora specific.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It applies to NetworkManager-0.7.1 and the kernel module kmod-rt2860-184.108.40.206 (which is the latest upstream version, it appears).
I wasn't sure if this bug is correctly assigned to NetworkManager since the problem lies with kernel module (probably) but I couldn't find a better category, the module isn't party of the kernel (yet. I think there is an ongoing transition to include it upstream).
Thanks for filling this bug.
Can you please provide your /var/log/messages while the problem occurs and also the kernel version you are using (uname -r)? Thank you.

This is output of a failed connection attempt from /var/log/messages. It shows that the connection times out.
.. and my kernel version is 220.127.116.11-170.2.56.fc10.x86_64
It appears the problem solved itself when I upgraded to f11, it's working now with
NetworkManager 0.7.1 (release 8.git20090708.fc11) and rt2860 18.104.22.168 (release 2.fc11).

NetworkManager output, working
Not sure if it's necessary, just posting this for sake of completeness.
