Re: NetworkManager CVS detects bcm43xx as wired

I'm having the same problem. I'm using NetworkManager 0.6.2-2.fc5 and
the bcm43xx driver from kernel 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.

Does 'lshal' show the device as having net.80211 capabilities?

It does say that it is a wireless card, here's the relevenat output that I get:

udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_14e4_4320'
 info.linux.driver = 'bcm43xx'  (string)
 info.udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_14e4_4320'  (string)
 linux.subsystem = 'pci'  (string)
 linux.hotplug_type = 1  (0x1)  (int)
 pci.subsys_product = 'Belkin F5D7001 High-Speed Mode Wireless G
Network Card'  (string)
 pci.subsys_vendor = 'Belkin'  (string)
 info.product = 'BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller'  (string)
 pci.product = 'BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller'  (string)

 pci.linux.sysfs_path = '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.0'  (string)
 info.parent = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer'  (string)
 info.bus = 'pci'  (string)
 linux.sysfs_path_device = '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.0'  (string)
 linux.sysfs_path = '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.0'  (string)

Given that, do we know why it might be coming up as a wired card? I
had the previous version of NetworkManager installed and it worked
fine. Also, it will work now if I turn all encryption off on my
wireless network. I'm not sure if that information helps, but there it

If there's any other information you'd like me get for you, I'd be
glad to do it. I'd love to see this bug fixed.
