JP you forgot to mention that you are a whiney whiner who exaggerates every negative and ignores every positives of any Fedora issue - IOW a fedora-hater-troll. I say this despite the fact that you are knowledgeable and POTENTIALLY a great positive contributor to this forum - instead you choose to kvetch, kvetch kvetch instead of contributing.
"The sea was angry that day, my friends. Like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli."
JP's constant stream of 'doesn't work' 'can't do' negative comments really has to be considered trollish.
I use dynamically assigned IPs. Yet I was able to right-click the NM icon, select wireless, IPv4 manual, edit connections, add the IP, mask, route, DNS "SAVE" and set the connection and BOOM - a static IP.

Well mine just succeeded and the contents are in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-Auto_`ESSID`
We've established that JP lacks the basic wherewithal to configure a wifi via NM.
Why are you posting your failures here JP ? It doesn't help the OP.
Why are you piggybacking your failures on threads where people are not hindered by your inabilities ?
If YOU, JP have a problem you want addressed start your own thread and ask for help.
If you are just here to detract from helping people - then why don't you ....
