Summary: Not able to connect to protected WLAN's anymore
(WEP/WPA enabled networks)
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Factory
Version: 13.1 Milestone 2
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: SUSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Network
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML,
like Gecko) Chrome/29.0.1547.0 Safari/537.36 SUSE/29.0.1547.0

It seems that in 13.1 wpa_supplicant is no longer capable of connecting to a
protected WLAN. To be sure that it is not in my own installation, I used the
12.3 KDE Live CD and the 13.1 M2 KDE Live CD. With the 12.3 I can connect
directly to a WPA-2 enabled network without problems. With the 13.1 setup, I
can no longer connect. I already enabled debug logging for wpa_supplicant, but
the only thing that I get out of that is that there is a local disconnect and
then wpa_supplicant is asking for the password again. This is being repeated
over and over again until I cancel the action.

I have a Lenovo T410 with a 802.11bgn wireless PCIe Half Mini Card that
utilizes the iwlwifi kernel driver. I am using the latest Factory. I have also
tried already with the 3.10 kernels, but this made no difference.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the 13.1 M2 Live image
2. Try to connect to a WEP/WPA protected WLAN
Actual Results:
No connectivity to protected WLAN

Expected Results:
