Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 692226
Network manager fails to connect to hidden but open wireless network
Last modified: 2011-04-04 22:50:30 EDT
Description of problem:Network manager detects but fails to connect to hidden but open wireless network. Selecting the <unknown> or <hidden> selections results in the disappearance on the dialog and the icon ... and no connection.
Opening the network setup dialog does not list the hidden wireless network, and adding it via the (+) procedure will NOT work as the [SAVE] button remains stubbornly greyed out, no matter what is entered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
EDIT: This function was actually working delightfully well before the last two rounds of updates.
EDIT-2: Logging into XFCE on the same system allows dialog and working connection to the same network without issue.
