Though a similar problems is posted at this thread
, I needed to re-post because of the associated version of Fedora and NetworkManager.
I'm using a Lenovo B450 laptop with Fedora 14 x86_64. The laptop has a Atheros AR5001 wireless adapter and is identified at lscpi. Additionaly lspci reports that the kernel driver in use and the kernel module for that device is ath5k.
On a fresh install of Fedora 14, the NetworkManager applet seem to behave well at enabling and disabling wireless (remember the "Enable Wireless" checkbox). Though wireless was always at disabled state at every boot time, even if it was enabled at the toggle button on the laptop. Now that, after I have fully updated the system (yum -y update), I'm unable to enable wireless. Clicking on the "Enable Wireless" menu item on the NetworkManager applet has no effect, and I've a confirmed report that the update broke this functionality (I reinstalled F14, and then it was working, full system update broke the function).
After the update, the kernel version is 18.104.22.168-72.fc14.x86_64 and the NetworkManager version is 0.8.1-10.git20100831.fc14.x86_64.
The log file (/var/log/messages) has some clue (as posted below):
Does anyone else has a similar problem. Any one tried a fix?
