Description ben creitz 2005-04-08 15:11:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
The system-config-network GUI has no way for the user to set multiple WEP keys and which key should be used by default.  I suppose that this utility ultimately uses calls the ifup-wireless script, which now has that capability.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open system-config-network
2. make a new wireless connection
3. notice that there is no way to set multiple WEP keys

Actual Results:  ...

Expected Results:  ...there should be widgets for multiple WEP keys.

A patch to that adds 'key index' to the GUI.

This makes the GUI similar to the config screens on other OSs, allowing one key
with the opportunity to indicate which key it is.  The patch is just for the
GUI, so the functionality still doesn't exist.

An alternative GUI might have 4 key entry fields with a radio button next to
each to indicate which one should be used.

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:30:09 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
