Test that system-config-network can configure and connect to a wireless network using WEP encryption. You will need 2 systems to perform this test. One system must be hosting a wireless network, the other will be testing connectivity to the network.

Steps To Reproduce

  1. On the machine under test, start system-config-network
    • Typically by selecting System -> Administration -> Network
  2. Under the Devices tab, select the wireless network, then click the Edit button
  3. Under the General tab, de-select the following:
    • Controlled by NetworkManager
  4. Under the Wireless Settings tab, select:
    • Mode: auto
    • Network name: Specified - enter the name of a nearby wireless network to connect
    • Network name: Key - enter the WEP key for the desired network
  5. Save your changes by selecting OK
  6. Now select Activate in the main system-config-network window.

Expected Results

The following must be true to consider this a successful test run.

  1. The application system-config-network runs to completion without error
  2. You have networking connection to Internet or other systems in your local network.
