Re: NetworkManager + WEP + static IP--no worky? (how to get 'Edit Connections' working?)

This seemed to help!

Now after I do -- "Connect to New Wireless Network"   and enter in SSID and WEP stuff and NM fails to connect because of now DHCP....

I get a small 'arrow' to right of SSID list when you L-click on network manager...  The resulting pop-up menu has the connection(s) that I manually entered.   I can select those, and NM seems
to obey the config I saved.

I had to attempt to connect once to the target SSID - before the SSID would appear (and the little arrow)  in my NM-applet list.     I suspect this is because my target network has a hidden SSID
-- it would be cool if connections are available -- perhaps under the "Create New..." option....

After connecting and reconnecting & nm-applet considering things OK -- i got bars and a connect confirmation  -- I had no significant network connectivity (i.e. couldn't browse internet etc) .

catting /etc/resolv.conf and reviewing settings with ifconfig/iwconfig/route  all my settings seemed OK. 

After some random tinkering and connecting and reconnecting -- I finally got gmail to load and a few other pages....but ...things are very patchy...Internet connectivity fades in and out....

Still trouble shooting this....could be not related to NM....(however I had scripted connecting to this network via a ksh script (after turning off NM) under Fedora 8 -- and it generally worked well)

...any further help would be great....

(after a reboot...and a few reconnects....and some idle period in my connection seems much better .... so things seemed to be working OK!).

try adding the BSSID to the connection in the editor (you should find
it in the iwlist scan output)
