#15420 new bug

I am experiencing problems trying to connect, idualwifi7260

Reported by: WildKeccak Owned by: waddlesplash

Component: Drivers/Network/idualwifi7260 Version: R1/Development

Has a Patch: no Platform: x86-64

Description

I have to be extra patient with the dialogs when connecting to my WiFi network, because there are a lot of false starts. It appears that nothing is happening, because the dialog comes back; It works for a second and then stops. Kind of like a motorcycle.

This problem also occurs with this driver on FreeBSD, so don't expect a resolution anytime soon.

This might be two or more bugs. I just barely installed hrev53556 x86-64, right clicked on the network thing to the left of the audio control, selected my network (which was visible this time, thankfully). Then I entered my credentials, and waited for the dialog to come back. It then asked me to allow the key to be added to the keyring, and promptly connected.

I think the dropdown list also stops working around 300+ items. Or invalid entries, or something. I have a screenshot that I will give you

There is a separate ticket for that already

There /is/ some wisdom in reformatting and reinstalling :)

Um, waddlesplash, help me. I can't find that separate ticket.
