Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Doesn't Save WPA Key Under 11?
Aug 14, 2009
Just upgraded from Fedora 10 to 11 and cannot setup wireless connection via NetworkManager. By some reason it doesn't store WPA key. There are following errors in the message log:
Aug 14 14:37:05 mike-dev NetworkManager: <WARN> connection_get_settings_cb(): connection_get_settings_cb: Invalid connection: 'NMSettingConnection' / 'uuid' invalid: 1
Aug 14 14:37:11 mike-dev NetworkManager: <WARN> wait_for_connection_expired(): Connection (2) /org/freedesktop/NetworkManagerSettings/2 failed to activate (timeout): (0) Connection was not provided by any settings service
Kinda fed up with NetworkManager. Since trying the betas of F11 on my laptop, i've had endless bad experience with it.
Installed version: 0.7.1
Aside from the description below, please let me know what detailed system info you want to see (specific commands appreciated).
When i log in, the applet loads. However, it doesn't connect to the last Wifi connection i used. My SSID is hidden, so i click on the applet and choose "Connect to hidden wireless network". i see my stored connection in the drop-list. i select it, and all fields are greyed out, the WPA key is blank, and the Connect button is disabled.
Leaving that dialog, i delete my stored connection and re-create it manually, setting all the information correctly. i have DSL, using my DSL modem in bridging mode, and for some reason NetworkManager doesn't retrieve the DNS entries from the modem, whereas Windows does. So i have to set the connection to "DHCP (Address Only)" and manually add the IPs for my DNS.
However, the connection doesn't initiate, so i click the applet again and attempt again to connect to my hidden SSID, using the newly created profile. Same problem: no WPA key, all boxed disabled, and Connect also disabled.
The ONLY way i can get this thing to connect is by deleting my stored connection, clicking to connect to a hidden SSID, and create the connection from the New dialog. However, then i still have to go into Edit Connections and set the DHCP and DNS correcly before i can reach outside.
This is ridiculous, and i haven't been messing with any other configuration. i had a thread when F11 was still in beta where i had inconsistent results with NetworkManager. After thinking i got it fixed with some help, and discovering it wasn't, i decided to wait for the final release to see if it would work any better.
(automatically connect to the last active connection), consistently (connects when it loads at login every time), Otherwise, if there's a different connection manager, i'm open to that as well. Especially if the alternate connection manager can automatically retrieve DNS settings the way Windows can.
how nobody else could have run into this in the meantime. [URL] Two friends of mine are having the same issue on Ubuntu-11.4-machines. In short: Connecting to the Cisco-VPN via shell-command "vpnc" works flawlessly, whereas NetworkManager just doesn't connect at all. We had this working in older versions of Fedora/Ubuntu about some months ago...
I am using gnome's nm-applet as the client for NetworkManager. However, it seems that nm-applet will not save network passwords, so I have to retype the password on each connection. I already have gnome-keyring installed, so I'm not sure what the issue could be. I read online somewhere that secrets are retrieved through polkit or something, but I am completely unfamiliar with polkit and such.
I recently installed Fedora 15 x86_64 on my new AMD Machine and I'm quite pleased with things thus far.Here's where my problem comes. I mainly bought that machine to help me with Development. More specifically, Virtual Machines for testing purposes. I have installed Fedora 15 x86_64 as a qemu-kvm Virtual Machine and it's working.. for the most part. I am having a whole lot of trouble getting it to connect to the Internet.
My guess is the only way I'm going to reliably do that is to setup a Bridge. Yes/no? However, in order to setup a Bridge I need to disable NetworkManager and that where the fun happens. It completely disables my network connection. I'm probably missing something small, but I can't figure out what I'm missing. I've double checked my ifcfg-em1 multiple times(I've been trying for ~24 hours so far) and all the settings are as they should be.
I've turned NetworkManager off and stopped it(chkconfig and service) and turned network on(chkconfig and service). Theoretically I should simply need to turn off NM and turn on network and things should be fine. no?
The auto connect feature of NetworkManager Applet (version 0.7.997) isn't working on my system. If the WiFi connection dies, Network Manager doesn't detect that the connection has been lost and try to reestablish the connection. I have to manually click on the WiFi hotspot to reestablish the connection. This appears to be the case both while the computer is running and when I first boot it up (i.e. when booting, if the first attempt at establishing a WiFi connection doesn't succeed, Network Manager doesn't retry or try another hotspot).Is this "normal" behavior for Network Manager? If not, does anyone know a fix? Here's some more info about my system:
i have added a vpn connection on my Lucid desktop machine, but every time i try and connect, it fails. I also have the same, identical vpn connection on my karmic install on my laptop. everything works perfectly on Karmic, but Lucid is having problems. I have followed identical steps for creating the vpn connection on both machines: vpn connections can be made in 2 ways, the first is through the network manager, but trying to connect through the nm-applet returns an error about vpn failing to connect and "no valid vpn secrets".
I suspect this is at the root of the problem. The only way for my Lucid machine to successfully connect through the command line is if I run the openvpn command under sudo.
I'm trying to get KNetworkManager to run a script after my wireless connection is activated. I created the script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d using the same format as scripts to start firewalls, but it doesn't seem to run. I can run the script successfully from the command prompt, but it doesn't happen automatically
my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt
I have a weird problem with Firefox with the following scenario: When I view a picture from a website in the browser and the pictures gets deleted from the server (while I'm viewing it) - I can't save the picture to my hard drive. Firefox always tries to download the picture from the web-server although it's in the cache. Resulting in an image file which contains the HTTP 404 response from the server. *lol*
If I change the keyboard shortcut for Open a Terminal in System > Preferences it will not stay in there if i log-out or reboot. When i log back in the shortcut is set to disabled, and I have tried different key combos and they give the same result. I am using Fedora 14 btw and hopefully you guys know of a solution. I tried making a custom command also using the gnome-terminal command but the terminal launches with a different directory other than my home directory when using that method.
I have no problems seeing the networks available and connecting to a network in KDE. But there is no network manager in GNOME. I might have messed up with the settings earlier. What I can do though is run knetwork manager every time I start up (or add it to start up programs). But that opens up the KDE wallet which would rather avoid.I am thinking I need to install something related to NetowrkManager.
if the NetworkManager uses wpa_supplicant? I normally dont use NetworkManager and decided to try it. I started it and tried it out and it works with WEP and WPA! I cant figure out why using the iwconfig command is not working by itself for WEP. WPA working with NetworkManager is just a bonus though.
I'm an inordinate amount of trouble getting F15 to run without NetworkManager. If I boot with the NetworkManager service enabled, my NIC presents as expected at /dev/eth0 (I'm using biosdevname=0). However, when I stop the NetworkManager service, /dev/eth0 disappears from the filesystem.If I boot without NetworkManager enabled, /dev/eth0 is never created. Reviewing dmesg, udev is loading an ethernet driver.
after fiddling around with compiz-fusion and KDE, my network suddenly disappeared. I looked in the package manager and apparently I don't have the gnome applet for networkmanager...but everything else I seem to have (the git version not svc or w/e) Anyone know if installing the applet will let me choose my wireless network and connect to it? Right now I think so, but what I have to do is boot into windows, find the package on the web and download it, then boot into fedora and install it
where I can find the fedora 10 networkmanager-gnome package (git version for x86_64)? I looked around and found the svc version and a git version for i386, but my OS is x86_64 and I couldn't find any git versions of it for 64-bit fedora's. btw, I have no idea what git and svc mean, but when I tried to install the svc version, it told me I had to install svc versions for all the other networkmanager packages...
I recently installed F10 x86_64 on my Lenovo T61 laptop, and while I'm quite pleased with F10, I am having a difficult time with my wireless card. I spent most of yesterday searching for a solution, but none have presented themselves. Scenario: I am trying to connect to a HIDDEN SSID with NO ENCRYPTION (work Wifi, don't ask) using network-manager and its associated applet.
Symptoms: I left-click on NetworkManager, select "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", enter my information, NetworkManager does a few things, and finally I'm told that NetworkManager cannot connect to my network.
I have just installed Fedora 10 on an old laptop and was quite impressed with how smoothly it all went ... until it came to setting up networking!
I have battled for three days now and I'm almost there; - installed updated firmware to the built in Broadcom 4306 wireless network adapter - got NetworkManager to work with a static ip address by manually editing the ifcfg-wlan0 file - managed to get the WPA security to work
The only problem I am left with is that there is no default route; if I set one up using: ip r a default via 10.1.1.1 dev wlan0
Then everything starts working.
If I try to add routes using the NetworkManager gui interface they dont get saved (no suprises there then! ).
I have tried creating a route-wlan0 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ but this seems to be ignored by NetworkManager.
Since the NetworkManager GUI is almost useless, does anyone know if there are any other configuration files I can manually modify to get a default route set?
I upgraded from F14 to F15 using the DVD. The network worked fine after the upgrade.This morning I updated to the latest RPMs and rebooted, and now the network donot work!ifconfig shows only the lo interface. NetworkManager does not start, /var/log/messages shows signal 11.I tried to boot with the original kernel, but the results are the same.
I just updated my Fedora 10 installation with the latest NetworkManager (NetworkManager-0.7.0.99-4.git20090324.fc10.i386) and now my NetworkManager fails to start. The output in the /var/log/messages is
I have a typical 'linksys' style home wireless router (whose IP is 192.168.0.1) .
If I use DHCP, everything works fine:
However, if I try to give myself a static IP,
(I also never understood why the DNS server should not be the real dns server address (some external ip) rather than the router's address? but that is what gets set automatically when using DHCP)
So using manual, it connects, but then the internet doesn't work. The only difference I see when I go to "connection information" when connected with dhcp vs manual is in dhcp mode there is a "default route: 192.168.0.1". Is that the problem? How do I set this "default route" / what is it?
I'm looking for some information on setting up a VPN client through Networkmanager in Gnome. My company uses a Sonicwall VPN server, and I'm having trouble getting my F11 laptop to connect. I've tried OpenS/WAN with no luck, and stumbled across Networkmanager's VPN setup. I can choose Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc) which says it's compatible with Sonicwall IPSec-based VPNs. Is there a how-to I can check out, or has someone else got this setup to work?
The card is recognized by System--admin--network as the correct card (BCM43XG) and assigned eth1. However, NetworkManager shows no wireless network. I have a great signal on the same machine if I boot into a Windows partition.
I'm so sorry to bother people, but I'm totally at a loss.I've searched the forum and have not found the answer.My NetworkManager icon is missing from the notification bar. Ive tried rt clicking on the top panel >add to pannel>notification area....yet it is still missing.I know that NetworkManager is installed, yet I cant even access it to connect to a wireless network. I'm able to connect to Eth0.I cant tell if my wireless card drivers are setup or not and if that makes a difference.
I have just installed Fedora 13 on my Lenovo Ideapad S12 (company laptop, evaluating Fedora for companywide use on all laptops) and a facing a weird problem with KDE4 and NetworkManager / knetworkmanager. The laptops wifi card is a Broadcom BCM4312 and I have successfully extracted the necessary b43 firmware. The b43 module loads on boot and the wireless card is activated and ready to use. However, NetworkManager doesn't seem to agree and has wireless disabled by default every time I reboot or even logout / login. I have to check the box manually after which it automatically connects to my wifi network at home.
Any idea where I can check that box automatically on boot?
