Wireless network does not reconnect on resume after suspend to RAM
Last modified: 2010-05-05 16:25:02 EDT
Description of problem:
This error occured afer upgrading from:
Wireless network does not reconnect automatically on resume after suspend to RAM
Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run pm-suspend, or close the lid on the laptop to initiate a suspend to RAM
2. open the lid
3. Watch the computer wake up, everything is fine exept it is no longer connected to the network. However, the NetworkManager signal strenth icon is shown instead of the "double computer icon" that normally is shown when no network is selected.
The wireless network is disconnected
The wireless network should reconnect automatically if it was connected when the suspend took place.
Manually selecting a network, after resuming restores the network connection.

It looks like you've got a shared network connection defined for wifi that allows other users to connect to your computer and use its internet connection. And it looks like that connection has "Connect automatically" checked. Try right-clicking on the applet icon and deleting that network in the connection editor.
May 4 01:40:50 humlan NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth0/wireless): connection 'WEBWORKS' has security, and secrets exist. No new secrets needed.
May 4 01:40:50 humlan NetworkManager: <info> Config: added 'ssid' value 'WEBWORKS'
May 4 01:40:50 humlan NetworkManager: <info> Config: added 'mode' value '1'
May 4 01:40:50 humlan NetworkManager: <info> Config: added 'frequency' value '2412'
(the 'mode 1' is the part that says its adhoc/shared).
If you see the WEBWORKS network in the editor, does teh "Wireless" page say "Mode: adhoc" on it?
First of all, after the latest "yum update" the network now actually comes up again on resume, So as far as I'm concerned this bug could be closed, unless my log info indicates some other type of error that could be problematic to somebody else.
If I try to edit the network connections I see two connections in the edit dialog:
WEBWORKS used 1 day ago
Auto WEBWORKS used 8 days ago
If I do mouseover on the signal strength icon, the mouseover pop up indicates that it is the "Auto WEBWORKS" connection that is used.
- The "WEBWORKS" connection is indeed of type Adhoc, but it is not shared.
- The "Auto WEBWORKS" connection is of type "infrastructure" (Or whatever it might be called in English, my Swedish system calls it "infrastruktur"). This connection is shared.
I removed the "WEBWORKS" line and it still works fine.
ok, thanks for the update. You were hitting bug 588814 which was fixed by the latest bits from this morning.
