[Don't know if this is same problem as #9222.] I don't have wireless at home. Went to visit a friend who has his own Access Point ("yucca"). No matter what I did, I COULD NOT CONNECT my staging-21 system to his Access Point. Basically, when I clicked (in Neighborhood View) on the "yucca" AP, that icon would pulse for a while, then eventually a mesh icon would start pulsing instead.
[Among the things I tried ::: 'ifconfig msh0 down'. Very soon thereafter msh0 was automatically reinstated (once I even saw the mesh's 169.whatever address being assigned to eth0 !!) ::: 'service NetworkManager stop'. The device for eth0 disappeared !! ::: 'ifconfig eth0 up yucca-range-address'. Could ping myself, but trying to ping yucca's IP got "host unreachable". NOTHING worked - I was never able to connect the staging-21 system to my friend's wireless AP.]
