Wireless doesn't work.  This is a standard iwlagn device:

10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)

The Network Settings dialog just cycles between "Unavailable" and "Disconnected".  F14 worked fine with the wireless on this laptop.

I also see this same error on another laptop with an Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 device that also uses the iwlagn driver.  Wireless works fine on both of these laptops on F14.  Completely unavailable on F15.

Migrating my comments to this bug instead of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=695959

> Same issue here with Dell M1330, Intel 4965 AG wireless card. F15 Live Beta
> 'nm-tool' shows nothing under Wireless Access Points
> 'iwlist wlan0 scanning' shows many networks detected
> Also, if I click on the NetworkManager icon and just leave it up, the Wireless
> section will intermittently switch between the On/Off slider and "unavailable".

wpa_supplicant version v0.7.3 (using LiveCD)

I was also asked to run abrt-gui to report the bug, but unless I'm missing something, no application crashes are being captured - even though I can still watch the wireless go back and forth between slider and unavailable.

Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 11:58:05 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. 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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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 '15' 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 15 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:
