Bugzilla – Bug 3283
NetworkManager (0.94) stopped working for my hardware configuration
Last modified: 2012-05-02 19:33:59 UTC
Since the last update NetworkManager (0.92 -> 0.94) not working for me any more.
The wireless PCI device is listed as a 'wired network' and I cannot connect to my router by NetworkManager any more.
iwlist is working normally and I switched to manual installation of the connection by '/etc/conf.d/net' (using wpa_supplicant).
In the description of the new package I found the following suspicious notice:
... "Do not use obsolete wext API by default" ...
(The relevant USE option might be "-wext")
I think my wireless device uses this API. (D-Link G520+ by ndiswrapper)
I have the exact same problem since I updated, yesterday morning. My wireless card is an Ralink RT3062. It worked perfectly prior to installing the updates. The correct driver is still being loaded, as per "lspci -v".
I've the same on x86 arch.
My wlan adapter is an inter ipw2200...

[intel/portage] enable USE=wext for net-misc/networkmanager, fixes bug 3283
Fixed in main repo, enabled USE=wext.
Marking as RESOLVED
were you all using ndiswrapper?
What kernel version were you using, also?
(In reply to comment #6)
Yes, I'm using ndiswrapper.
I tried different kernel versions (3.0, 3.1, 3.2).
No, I am using the driver for my chipset from the chipset maker, My card is a Ralink RT3062 and I compile and install driver rt3562sta.
No ndiswrapper for me:
# lsmod | grep ipw
ipw2200 101048 0
libipw 17680 1 ipw2200
cfg80211 115264 2 ipw2200,libipw
lib80211 2339 3 lib80211_crypt_ccmp,ipw2200,libipw
I updated yesterday. Network device function but i can't connect with any secured wireless LANs (including mine).
