Description Jordi Sanfeliu 2014-01-21 15:38:43 UTC
Created attachment 853322 [details]
Output in '/var/log/messages' using the AD and US localtimes

Description of problem:

I've found that if the system is configured to be under the localtime 'Europe/Andorra', it's completely unable to use some modern wifi devices like:

ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter

I've provided a file which includes the output in '/var/log/messages' under both localtimes (AD and US) after plugging the device on each localtime.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set your system under the 'Europe/Andorra' localtime:
# ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Andorra /etc/localtime

2. Plug the wifi device into the USB connector.

Actual results:

NetworkManager doesn't finalizes the wifi network.

Expected results:

NetworkManager configures successfully the wifi network.

Perhaps you could provide a proposed wireless ruleset?

(In reply to John W. Linville from comment #1)


I've been using the ES localtime and it works without any problem. I'm not sure what is a correct rule set but I think that, by proximity, AD could use the same one as in ES:

country AD:
        (2402.000 - 2482.000 @ 40.000), (N/A, 20.00)
        (5170.000 - 5250.000 @ 40.000), (N/A, 20.00)
        (5250.000 - 5330.000 @ 40.000), (N/A, 20.00), DFS
        (5490.000 - 5710.000 @ 40.000), (N/A, 27.00), DFS
