I'm sorry, but I thought, since the thread was not even answered, that it was opened. And it was not clear to me, and to everyone else, that it was dhcp related, since there is no answer to the thread.
the only similarities is fedora 15
Is it a built in or a usb dongle ?
As reported by the author of this thread, mine is also a builtin wireless device:
05:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
it might be some use a "winmodem" a WINDOWS ONLY software based system
should list what is connected if it is a built in and not a usb dongle.
It used to work before, but suddenly stopped. I figured out that, if I do "ifup wlan0", then the status of the NetworkManager device wlan0 becomes "Not connected" and it starts to detect the networks again.
Since it's NM controlled, the ONBOOT clause has to be "no", as it is with ifcfg-eth0 that works just fine.
So I found a workaroud doing "ifup wlan0" that it's not nice, but works. Thanks anyway.
