I've tested the updated wireless-tools and have found no noticable
regressions. It works just as well as the previous version I had
installed (1:28-2.fc7). This is on a Development install, updated as of
the afternoon of May 13 (pacific time).
My workstation hardware is based on a Core2 Duo E6600 (x86_64 only, no
multilib), using a "2Wire Wireless PC Card Version 01.01" PCMCIA card (a
rebranded Prism2, using the orinoco_cs kernel driver). It's connected
via a "Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c475 (rev 80)" PCI cardbus (using the
yenta_socket kernel driver). My network is a simple SO/HO 802.11b router
using WEP. Scanning, association, and encryption all seem to work as
they should. The system-config-network configuration is holding well.
If it's relevant to this discussion, I don't use NetworkManager at all,
since the network setup is mostly static. (Though on second thought, I
probably would if it would accept my WEP key... but that's a problem for
another day. ^_^)
Hope that helps.
