Description mark 2013-12-27 09:00:00 UTC
Couldn't get Wireless LAN to work with above mentioned wireless chip set.
Through trial and error it turned out that the WiFi chip set will work
fine when connecting to WPA networks but not to WEP networks - beat me
to call it a security feature ;)

I'll be willing to re-install and run tests on it for you if necessary
and if there is a desire on your side to get to the bottom of it. The
installations used were fresh installs of the available images of 9.1,
9.2, and 10.0 RC3.


Connect only to WPA enabled routers.
How-To-Repeat: Install above mentioned images. Try to connect to WEP and WPA networks
during installer phase or on the running system.
