Description of problem: Wireless Networking is very unstable to the point of being useless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always and on All platforms attempted
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Wireless, entering specific key and etc.
2. Try the default settings ... which result in NO DNS
3. Try all configurations, i.e., set Channel, set Rate, set DNS, etc.
Actual results: Wireless Network will always drop, no matter what you re-configure.
Expected results: Wireless Network stable from the default settings
Additional info: Wireless Networking is now a MAINSTREAM networking interface. It is a must for Laptops, netbooks, and etc. MORE resources need to be diverted to resolving the thousands of wireless issues that all linux distros have.
Well, we need more specific info to find out what's going on.
Let's find out what NM version do you use:
rpm -q NetworkManger
What wireless card do you have:
Also please grab output of 'nm-tool' command and /var/log/messages.
/var/log/wpa_supplicant.log is useful too.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
