I've gone looking through FAQs ad DOCs and WIKIs and not found more information than the general statement that NetworkManager is awesome. So I have some questions.
First, background: got YDL on PS3, liked it. Put Ubuntu on iMac, hate it. It does not support WPA/WPA2 (at all) on closed networks so cannot connect to anything here.
I have downloaded Fedora 9 and written the ISO (DVD) to disc. If I lay waste to the Ubuntu partition and install Fedora, will it support my closed network that uses WPA/WPA2 straight out of the box? The access point is an Airport, the card is a regular Airport card and the Airport is hooked into another router that handles DHCP. All 4 Macs here handle connecting without issue. Windows XP Pro handles it without issue. YDL couldn't do it (though someone was nice enough to give me a step-by-step guide to getting YDL to support WPA). Ubuntu seems to have no hope of doing it. Wii and PS3 (in game OS) connect flawlessly.
Do you think Fedora 9 will have any hope of connecting to my closed Airport network using WPA/WPA2?
I have been networking for over 10 years, have the really basic A+, Net+, Sec+ certs. But I am not a programmer and I loath manual creation of text config files. If Fedora would connect but require several more days of configuring, please let me know ahead of time.
