Subject: Bug report - Wrong naming of my Wireless Network card enp3s6, should have been wlp3s6
Date: Fri, 08 Nov 2013 16:31:46 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <2774683.Pvb2zYysB7@md8338-opensuse-12-3.site> (raw)

Hello,

I have installed openSUSE 12.3 / KDE on my Medion Notebook
MD41300 with an INTEL Pentium 4 CPU 3.0 GHz and 1 Gb memory and 
everything works oke, including wireless.
 
I am testing openSUSE 13.1 RC2 with this older laptop. Up to now it has 
worked very well through all the releases upto openSUSE/KDE 12.3.

On the moment I test the live openSUSE/KDE 13.1 RC2 via an usb-stick. 
The system comes up nicely but the wireless network card does not work 
and generates the following lines in dmesg output:

[ 48.675564] enp3s6: resetting device...
[ 48.675587] enp3s6: uploading firmware...
[ 48.855166] prism54: request_firmware() failed for 'isl3890'
[ 48.855175] enp3s6: could not upload firmware ('isl3890')
[ 48.855179] enp3s6: islpci_reset: failure

While I followed URL:
         http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/p54
to activate driver p54pci, the same as I had done for all the previous 
releases.

The wireless networkcard, according to command "/sbin/lspci"
Networkcontroller: "Intersil Corporation ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism
Duette] /ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] (rev 01)".

The kernel version is according to command uname -r :
     3.11.6-3-default

I checked on the openSUSE forum wih Larry Finger, in thread:

http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/install-boot-login/413006-please-help-enabling-p54-wireless-firmware-kernel-according-url-http-wireless-kernel-org-en-users-drivers-p54-2.html

and he noticed that my wireless get the wrong naming "enp3s6" in stead 
of  "wlp..."
He proposed a way to still test my wireless card by adding an entry, 
70-persistent-net.rules (with the mac address of my wireless card and 
wlan0 in it) to /etc/udev/rules.d/

I have added that line to /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and 
deactivated prism54 driver and activated p54pci driver (via modprobe)
and the wireless device started working correctly.

The problem is now why assigned the openSUSE 13.1 RC2 live USB-stick 
initialy the  wrong naming  enp3s6    to my Wireless Network card.
