Fixed In Version: NetworkManager-0.8.1-37.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When a connection was locked to a specific WPA protocol version (either v1 or v2/RSN) via either the GConf system or settings in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ configuration files, the NetworkManager UI overwrote that preference when the connection was edited and saved. This bug has been fixed and such WPA preferences are now preserved in the described scenario.

Description Dan Williams 2012-06-21 15:30:25 UTC
When a connection is locked to a specific WPA protocol (either v1 or v2/RSN) via either GConf or WPA_ALLOW_WPA/WPA_ALLOW_WPA2 in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, the UI overwrites that preference when the connection is edited and saved.
