Default Bug#617694: general: rt2860sta reconnect fails wpa2 enterprise peap

Package: general
Severity: normal

hi,
When reconnect to a wpa2 enterprise peap wireless network the network-manager
doesn't get connection.
The solution I have tested is: right click in network-manager, disable
wireless, modprobe -r rt2860sta, load the module again, and enable wireless
in network-manager, then it works

does it happen to anyone?

Greetings

Oh, sheesh, that definitely shouldn't be necessary.

So here's what we'll need in order to fix this:

Please try the newest kernel from squeeze, and attach output from
"reportbug -p linux-image-$(uname -r)" so we can get to know your
hardware better.

If it still exhibits the problem, please also try a 3.1.y kernel from
sid. The only packages from outside squeeze you should need in order
to do this are the kernel image itself, initramfs-tools, and
linux-base.

Then, if the 3.x kernel exhibits the same trouble, we can work on
reporting this upstream[*]. And if it does not exhibit the same
trouble, we can try a few kernels halfway between from
http://snapshot.debian.org/ in order to find when the fix was
introduced, and then apply that patch to squeeze.

What do you think? Thanks for reporting it, and good luck.

Regards,
Jonathan

[...]

I'm afraid that's not going to help us to fix the bug in squeeze,
because the rt2800pci driver has replaced rt2860sta.

But it might solve the problem for reydecopas, if he/she is happy to run
kernel versions from testing/unstable.

Ben.
