View Full Version : Wifi driver ok, but connection not?
10th August 2009, 01:54 AM
I threw F11 Live on a USB drive today and can see all of my networks, but I can't establish a connection. I have an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AGN card, which has pretty wide support, it's always worked out of the box and does fine for me on F10 and Ubuntu. I'm using Network Manager to attempt to control it. Connections fail regardless of encryption.

Well, workin fine now, not sure what the issue was, but I strongly suspect el nino.

Interestingly enough it crept up again, so I redid the stick on F10 and it works fine. It is trying to connect to a hidden SSID but I don't have any trouble with F10 doing it. Also, non hidden SSID act the same way so I don't think that's it. I can't reliable reproduce this - sometimes it happens and sometimes not (I'm on the livesub 10 stick now).
I am going to go ahead and update the 10 stick (thanks to greater persistence) and reboot and see how it acts. Would anyone else file a bug report on this? I think I should if F10 continues to act normally.

F10 updated and acted as I would expect it to, I will file a bug report in the morning.
Does anyone know what was changed in regards to network on F11? I have seen a lot of different issues on the forum about it lately and haven't really seen it pinned down to one thing. Maybe it's just because it's so fresh still, or the curse of the "odd" releases??
