Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

I'm having the same problem. Using RT61pci module for Ralink corp. RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI card. I went back to using 3.2.1

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Same problem here, with "Network controller: Ralink corp. RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g",

All OK with Linux 3.2.1-3.fc16.x86_64 but no go with Linux 3.2.2-1.fc16.x86_64

Is there a bug filed for this? I tried searching on the Redhat bugzilla but gave up.

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Same problem here, wireless networking no longer appears to work with 3.2.2-1, my card is

Code:
Atheros AR9285 Rev:2 mem=0xf91e0000, irq=16

but If i use 3.2.1-3 I have poor performance. No problem using Ubuntu with Kernel 3.0.2.
Any idea?

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Same here. Wireless suddenly (and soon after being up) stops working. Ifconfig thinks that wlan0 is alive but no networking. I can not even ping or connect to the router.

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

I tried going backwards using previous kernels, but not working. Running Asus EEE 1000 SD. Wireless gone, but not forgotten

Is someone working this?

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Well the best way to get some one working on it is to file an issue . It does look like at least one bug has been filed, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug...iple&id=785939.

FWIW I have the same problem and it seems to be worse when connecting to a VPN.

I filed bug 785422 and I found several others...there does not
seem to be a big rush to fix the bug.

I have been checking koji for new 3.2.2 builds but none have appeared.

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Confirm the same problem here with 3.2.2 and the Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000.

Works for a short while, and then dies. Continues to work fine with the 3.2.1 kernel.

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Confirmed similar problem on my system Dell M4600 laptop.
Works aok for a while then data traffic dies.
If I do a flight-mode turn-off/back-on works again for a while.

dmesg sez:
iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN, REV=0x74
and later multiple messages every 5 or 10 or 20 mins appear with:
iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: Tx aggregation enabled on ra = 08:86:3b:55:67:82 tid = 0
which I hadn't noticed before, will check it back in 3.2.1...

Old kernels don't work as I said before.

dmesg says:

eeepc_laptop: BIOS says wireless lan is unblocked, but the pci device is absent.

is this just consequence of the missing "driver" in the 3.2 Kernel?

Wireless was working right up to the moment I updated, then the reboot with new kernel failed to bring up the wireless.

Re: Todays update killed wireless networking...

Just got a kernel update today, 3.2.3-2.fc16.x86_64, that seems to have fixed the wifi issue. My wifi has been up with no problems for about 5 hours now.
