Current status

Rock Solid Wireless is currently in jeopardy due to a lack of userspace NM/wpa_supplicant developers.


Make wireless in Fedora rock solid.

Usage cases/rationale

Yusef wants to take his laptop anywhere there is wireless and easily connect, out of the box, whether it's open, using WEP, or using WPA.


Requires kernel driver work, NetworkManager work, wpa_supplicant work.

Test Plan

Get all supported wireless hardware. Test association with open, WEP, and WPA networks. Test in congested networks to make sure the connection stays up.

Supported hardware that should be tested (in no order): 1. ipw2200 1. ipw2100 1. prism54 1. zd1211rw 1. zd1201 1. orinoco_* 1. bcm43xx 1. atmel_* 1. ipw3945 (if upstream) 1. aironet


Depends on the wireless firmware feature.

Add support for the new PS3 Wireless driver in 2.6.21 to work out of the box... more details at: PlayStation
