I am having problem with connecting to wireless LAN with my F9. I usually connect to wireless LAN in two places: at school and at home. When I had F8, I could log in to my school network using wpa_supplicant. After installing F9, I cannot use wpa_supplicant any more. It fails though I am using the old configuration file which worked successfully.
With the new network manager GUI of F9, I can connect to school LAN but there are two major problems: the connection fails frequently and the speed is too slow. I cannot even connect to my home wireless LAN. With my windows Vista, I can connect everywhere smoothly.
I very much like to switch to Fedora for all my computer uses. But the only thing that is hindering is this problem. I am willing to cooperate with any developer to solve this problem by providing debug information and any other help.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400/E1505 laptop with Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 802.11a/g Mini Card (54Mbps) wireless card. The network authentication info is below:
Authentication type: Open
EAP type: PEAP
Server certificate root: Secure Server Authentication Authority
Authentication method: EAP-MSCHAP v2
The network manager GUI can successfully list all the available networks. I know few more people in my campus who are willing to start using Linux but are having the same problem. Please help.
