Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 622231
Network Connections window does not show Bluetooth connections
Last modified: 2011-06-28 10:51:01 EDT
Description of problem: The Network Connections window doesn't show the mobile broadband connection that is in use.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.connect to mobile broadband with bluetooth PAN
2.open network connections window
3.select mobile broadband tab
no connections shown
connection in use shown, and editable
I think this is important because there may be a need to change something about the connection - in my case I would prefer to use a well known DNS provider instead of relying on the poor implementation of the ISP / phone. I expected to be able to open the network connections window and edit the connection info in the same way as I would for a wired interface, overriding some aspects of the connection (fixed DNS instead of DHCP provided).
When my connection is started by Network Manager it acquires an IP address and remote gateway, the gateway is pingable and /etc/resolv.conf is set appropriately, however it never answers DNS queries. If I override with a replacement resolv.conf using well known DNS servers it works fine.
I have two more use cases for this:
1. My telco (Vidéotron) has the brilliant idea to block DNS traffic to anywhere but their server. And Nexus One silently replaces the DNS server with Google's, which is blocked. Resulting in no DNS service. I have to update it manually using D-Feet, which is I guess, out of reach of most people.
2. It would be nice to be able to setup a different ISP with the same phone without having to de-pair and re-pair the phone.
Also, adding an extra tab there seems kind of trivial, or did I miss something ?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
