Kickstart using anaconda-ks.cfg

Heyas

I'm trying to build a live image using livecd-tools (livecd-creator), but this time i'd like to reuse the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg.

System: Fedora 3.16.7-200.fc20.x86_64

The building starts, the download begins, but it fails with networking.

I started to experiment with the anaconda file, anyhow, this is the network section:
Code:
# Network information
network  --bootproto=dhcp --essid="<ESSID-name>" --ipv6=auto --activate
#network  --bootproto=dhcp --device=p4p1 --onboot=off --ipv6=auto
network  --bootproto=dhcp --device=wlp3s0 --onboot=off --ipv6=auto

network  --hostname=P50.ocean

Any adivces?
Thank you in advance
