Hello,

I have recently installed F19 on my Lenovo T420 Laptop, with RHEL 6.4 dual boot. Wifi works great with RHEL 6.4 but when I switch to F19 it keeps on asking for the activation key, and once I provide the key, it goes on "Waiting For Authentication" mode after few seconds again asks for key. Can somebody please advice.

Are you using the same home directory for both installations? If so, can you try to create a new user. I suspect the RHEL wireless configuration might be conflicting with F19.

(Also, here is some free karma so you can comment).

Is the network you are connecting to using WPA2 Enterprise by any chance?

I am unsure if this would be helpful or not but, I also had a problem similar to this in a different distribution. The problem I had was that when the distribution would update it would get kicked off the wireless network thus always prompting me for the wireless password. When I restarted the distribution it would register a complete update and wireless worked again. See if restarting it helps at all for you.
