Greetings all!

I have been away from Fedora for some time, but came home to old
faithful after realizing that OpenSuse was going to take forever to
patch up the kernel to fix a buggy DSDT for my Toshiba labtops.

Here is my problem, along with some details:

I have two Toshiba L505D-GS6000 laptops that are identical, I truly
mean identical.  Running lspci on both machines will yield the same
exact configuration.

I installed Fedora 14 on laptop 1, updated the system, installed wicd
and removed networkmanager (I do not like it), and then ran the
following commands.

I ran make clean && make && make install for the Realtek driver that I
need for my wireless card, all went well and I was able to modprobe it

I then opened wicd and it saw my wireless router (WPA secured), I gave
it the necessary credentials and all is fine, typing this post from
that machine.


Everything went identically to the above process, but I have no
listing for WPA authentication.  I have insured that wpa_supplicant is
running and all versions are the same.

I am now at a complete loss to figure out what is keeping it from
scanning the networks.

Any thoughts, ideas, comments would be greatly appreciated.

Amm, is your SSID hidden? try to make it visible and then Try to reconect the second laptop after a reboot, 
also is the wireless adapter working? Try to unlock it with rfkill:

(As Root in your terminal)

1.- sudo yum -y install rfkill

2.- rfkill list

3.- rfkill unblock all

4.- rfkill list

Hope it gets solved.
