I've an in-law who I converted to Linux about a year ago. he's been using
it happily since the, until recently, when he got UPC broadband installed.
He's using Fedora 16. Clicking the network manager icon brings up the list
of APs, including his UPC one, but clicking on the UPC name does nothing
visually. It just fails silently. No error message, no request for a
I walked him through how to check the logs, and there is activity going on
as you would expect, but it's just not connecting. the only thing that
stood out was a "<warn> No agents were available for this request." message.
His laptop works fine with his old broadband, which he can connect to at
any time, the UPC broadband works fine with the laptop in Windows, yet he
cannot connect in Linux, through either wifi, or ethernet.
Is there a LUG presence in DIT that I can point him towards on Monday?
Maybe showing the problem in person would help find the solution.
