Description of problem:
nm-applets manages somehow to connect the wireless network card to my AP.
Switching to runlevel 3, i.e. no X server and trying to manually connect the wireless network interface via "ifup wlan0" doesn't work.
iwconfig setup looks the same, i.e essid, WEP keys, but in non X server runlevel the wlan0 network interface just doesn't associate with the AP. I have no idea why is that. "iwlist wlan0 scan" works and shows my AP in non X server runlevel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch to runlevel 3
2. try to bring fully and correct configured network interface wlan0 up; as root: "ifup wlan0"
3. Watch the connection fail.
"ifup wlan0" fails for no obvious reason, as it doesnt associate with the AP.
"ifup wlan0" should also associate with the AP and connect the computer to the internet.
