Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-03-09 00:31:54 UTC
Could you please post output of the command
uname -a
I am suspicious that it may be XEN related, so I won't to eliminate that.

Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-09 11:02:58 UTC
I did the test with a previous kernel, but I never installed any Xen-related
kernel on this laptop.
I'll reboot as soon as possible to test if it still occurs with this kernel.

Comment 5 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-09 12:12:19 UTC
I'm still having this bug with this kernel. However it's not 100% reproductible
: sometimes the nm-applet shows that the network is disconnected after booting,
somtimes it tries to connect and finds a ghost wired network.
Last time the IP was and the reported speed was 65535
Mb/s (pretty good card :))

Comment 6 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-15 08:34:12 UTC
Still happens with kernel 2.6.20-1.2986.fc7 and

Comment 7 Tyler Owen 2007-05-06 14:53:15 UTC
I am seeing this behavior with F7t4 using NetworkManager-0.6.5-2.fc7 and

Comment 8 Osma Ahvenlampi 2007-05-21 21:21:15 UTC
Same here; kernel-2.6.21-1.3163.fc7 and NetworkManager-0.6.5-2.fc7

No such issues with FC6 previously installed on the same machine.

Comment 10 Bastien Nocera 2007-05-21 21:58:59 UTC
It went away with kernel-2.6.21-1.3144.fc7, and then came back...

Comment 11 Bastien Nocera 2007-06-07 17:26:08 UTC
Dupe of a soon-to-be-fixed-in-Fedora bug
