Enable support for WiMAX in the NetworkManager
Last modified: 2015-04-23 15:54:50 MSD
Description of problem:
WiMax cards are currently not supported by the NetworkManager.
The sample card is "Intel Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150".
HW probe of the card on Dell notebook: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=fb39b68c06
HW probe of the card on Sony notebook: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=c3a3a1b313
Support for WiMAX can be enabled by the --enable-wimax configure option. The issue is that WiMAX has a restricted license. So a separate package (say, networkmanager-wimax) should be created in the restricted repository.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R5
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to run this command: nmcli device wimax list
Wimax support was dropped in NetworkManager several days ago:
