What exactly do you mean by "robust wireless behaviour"?

As I have said many times, if NetworkManager works, it is fine;
but if it does not work you are up the swanny.

What is needed in my view is a simple program, or just a recipe,
which tells you exactly where WiFi is failing, if it is failing.

Would it be possible to have a UI application, that could give the end
user information on whether the various devices on his system are
currently supported OOTB or not?

Since with Fedora 7 onwards, we are requesting users to install smolt
and send system profiles, I think it would be easier to get a
compilation of hardware devices that work OOTB!

If a particular hardware device is supported, we could provide
context-specific help documentation in the various system-config-*
applications, and if documentation is ambiguous, we could always
redirect the user to come to our wiki, which could potentially have user
experience compilations.


Thank you for writing an article that puts forward an approach on the
basic steps for getting WI-FI working on a laptop, but with all due
respect, I would not recommend hosting this document right away. I
personally feel that the flow of language is not smooth.

A little bit of editing could make your efforts a valuable contribution.

Just my views,

Version: GnuPG v1.4.7 (GNU/Linux)


Feel free to rewrite it. I think it's easy to read.
