Hi all.

I just installed F20 (xfce desktop) on my old Acer Aspire 5738Z.

Unfortunately wireless network was not working out of the box.

Googling around, I found this guide (http://home.roadrunner.com/~computertaijutsu/wireless.html) which helped me solve the problem.

chkconfig NetworkManager off
reboot
ifconfig wlp4s0 up
iwconfig wlp4s0 essid NETGEAR
dhclient wlp4s0

Now that I know my hardware is working properly, I'd like to fix NetworkManager so that I don't have to manually repeat the last three steps at every boot (not to mention scanning to identify available networks when I'm not at home).

Is this a xfce problem (note that I had no problem with xfce and F15 on the same laptop)? Am I using the wrong NetworkManager?

# yum list NetworkManager
Loaded plugins: langpacks
Installed Packages
NetworkManager.i686 1:0.9.9.0-30.git20131003.fc20 @updates

TIA for any suggestion.
