Wireless was working fine on F10 but when I updated to F11-Beta and then

F11 because I am not all that familiar with how it's supposed to work
because it just worked on F10 and before that, my previous laptop
pre-dated NM.

For some reason that I don't understand, the KDE Networking Widget in
the status tray has 'Enable Wireless' dimmed ('Enable Networking' is of
course checked).

I cannot connect to my wireless LAN at all.

Any suggestions?

I did some editing to ifcfg-wlan0 because for some reason, NM_CONTROLLED
and USERCTL were set to no after the update.

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0
# Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express
Adapter
DEVICE=wlan0
HWADDR=00:23:4e:7e:61:bf
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
TYPE=Wireless
ONBOOT=no
USERCTL=yes
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no
NM_CONTROLLED=yes
RATE=auto
MODE=Auto
ESSID=
CHANNEL=



i had a similar problem in F11 beta on my aspire one, it was caused by the acer_wmi module, try removing that if it's loaded and see if it makes a difference

all the difference in the world...thanks

Craig


what type of laptop is it craig? as the acer_wmi module shouldn't be loaded an the aspire one as the wmi implementation on these laptops in non functional so this is why i thought it was messing around with the wireless card, but if yours isn't an aspire one it may be something else, though i wonder how many other laptops have non functional wmi implementations?

i really need to get round to filing a bug against this
