Additional information (iwconfig, nm-tool, iwlist)

While testing NetworkManager/ConnectionSharing using NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.11.svn4022.fc9.i386, I encounter an issue where my ad-hoc network isn't shown as selected from the nm-applet drop-down list.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Click nm-applet
2) Select "Create new wireless network"
3) Enter Network name: flatline, wireless security: None

You are now connected to the wireless network 'flatline'

4) Click on nm-applet

Expected results:

I expected to see the new ad-hoc network selected in teh drop down list of networks

Actual results:

Ad-hoc network not selected

Additional information:

* selinux in permissive mode
* iptables flushed
* Smolt profile available at -

For output on the following commands, please refer to attachment:
$ iwconfig eth1
$ nm-tool
$ iwlist scan

Is this still an issue with latest rawhide?

Tested with ...


Immediately after the connection is established, the nm-applet shows the radio button selected next to the ad-hoc network.

3 minutes later ... it doesn't show the radio button selected.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 02:57:47 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

If you see this again, can you run "nm-tool" and paste in what it reports for your wifi card (including the scanned APs), obscuring MAC addresses as necessary?

Comment 5 James Laska 2009-02-16 13:27:40 UTC
I've just followed the exact steps in comment#0 for recreating this issue.  After 10 minutes, my NM applet drop down list still shows the newly created network as selected.

Ok; thanks!
