    Default tumbleweed NetWorkManager says wireless unavailable.

    After updating to tumbleweed my iwlagn wireless network card is not working.
    NetworkManager says wireless is unavailable.
    I tried the original 11.4 kernel that was working before the upgrade and that was not it.
    Possibly a NetworkManager issue.

    If i use command line, setup /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf I can connect. NetworkManager and wireless appears to be the issue.

    Same here, the NetworkManager log says:
    <info> (wlan0): now managed
    <info> (wlan0): device state change: unmanaged -> unavailable (reason 'managed') [10 20 2]
    Networkmanager worked in Opensuse 11.4. In Tumbleweed, interface wlan0 only works when setup with command-line tools, iwconfig, ifconfig, etc.

    Shouldn't be that way. Do you have both GNOME and KDE installed? Any other repos except Tumbleweed?
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    SOLVED!

    The solution for me was to update to wpa_supplicant-0.7.3-1.4.i586 from the Tumbleweed sources. The telltale messages from the NetworkManager logs were:
    ...[nm-device-wifi.c:1559] real_is_available(): (wlan0): not available because supplicant interface not ready
    ...[nm-device.c:3932] nm_device_state_changed(): (wlan0): device not yet available for transition to DISCONNECTED
    Also see Re: wifi and NetworkManager 0.8.996

    Thanks for the reply!
