I've looked through several pages and havent found a solution yet, maybe I have missed something.
When I start Fedora 8, the system connects to my WiFi network with NetworkManager, but after ~5 minutes it loses connection and is not able to reconnect. The time of the loss looks like fixed, but I can niot prove it at the moment.
Trying to run wpa_supplicant manually fails complaining about dbus not available. I've updated wpa_supplicant after the installation, did not help, I'm using v0.5.7 now.
Also, when this problem occures, I can not reboot/shutdown my system properly: the shutdown process freezes at the line "Unloading ip6vtables"
I do not use any password in my WiFi, just the MAC address verification.
So, in wpa_supplicant log I have nothing but this:
Trying to associate with 00:1b:fc:9d:2d:b4 (SSID='fnet' freq=2412 MHz)
Associated with 00:1b:fc:9d:2d:b4
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:1b:fc:9d:2d:b4 completed (auth) [id=0 id_str=]
CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys
Apart from nm-applet I also have the KDE wiriless network status; it reports that my WiFi network is available with good signal etc.; cannot reconnect anyway.
I have tried the recommended fix
, did not help either.
The hardware is the following:
m\b: asus p5e wifi ap, wifi card is onboard; iwl3945 chipset
router: asus wl500-g, works fine with wired LAN. After the failed WiFi I connect the router and my machine with an Ethernet cable, eth0 runs smoothly. The router is a DHCP-server.
I have also tried testing WiFi under WinXP on the same machine, got no problem with connection losses.
Any ideas? I'd be grateful for any help.
