Network Manager Applet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 6, 2011
I noticed using a GUI on Debian for the 1st time in some time, it's not working. I have full Internet in Gnome but the Network Manager Applet isn't working for whatever reason. It just say's 'no network connection' when in fact I do have a network connection. I installed Debian just as I did on another machine and it too has the same problem.
Is there a way to resolve this?
How To: Manual Network Configuration without the need for Network Manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2007
In setting up their wireless connection for the first time, Im discovering many individuals having problems connecting through Network Manager or other GUI wireless connection tools. In fact my Network Manager is intermittently buggy, connecting sometimes and not others. This guide benefits all users in case the GUI tools are not working, and is useful for testing a wireless connection during initial installation of wireless drivers since it provides for good debugging output.
Unencrypted/ WEP / WPA connections will be covered in this guide.
This guide is for anyone attempting to establish a network connection manually at the command line.
1. Properly installed network driver -- This guide can be used to troubleshoot driver installation to see if it is properly functioning
2. The ESSID of your router must be broadcasted and not hidden
3. Knowlege of your wireless cards driver (please see Prerequisite #4 to determine driver). Those using the r8187/r818x driver ple
Question: Setup Network Manager In System Settings for 2 Mobile USB 3G hosts
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 5, 2013
I tried this in the Linux Deepin Forum. Many have looked, but have had no replies in 48 hours, even with a "bump". Hoping for better luck here.
I'm running Linux Deepin 12.12 on an Acer Aspire V3-551.
I need to run two different mobile 3g USB modems for my internet access. I use one at a time, but would like to switch between them by just clicking the desired host in Network MGR, vs having to reconfigure my host each time. They have individual programs for windows, but WINE won't run them. I can run on either if I configure it in Network Manager, but have to manually key in info in Net MGR each time.
If I plug them both in, network manager "sees" them. However, when I try to configure the APN:, dial code, userid and password, whichever one I save last is stored as the info for both.
Appreciate fully explained, step by step instructions. If I am to configure network mgr from the command line, appreciate if it's all shown, and precisely how to find any variable
Mobile broadband connection not selectable in network manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2010
Hi, I am having problems with my 3 dongle- when I connect it to my netbook it flashes green so it detects a 3G network. However there is nothing in network manager enabling me to choose the mobile broadband so I can't use it. I know there should be an entry "mobile broadband" after the wireless networks listed.
I know the dongle works because I have previously used it successfully- I was using Linux Mint 8 and have now updated to version 9 and when I have tried to use it have been unable to do so.
I have gone into the connections and my 3 connection is present but there is no way for me to select it in network manager.
ibook G4 Debian Lenny Network Manager ppc
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 23, 2008
This is my first post and I appologize if I am posting in the wrong place. I did my first linux install today on my ibook. I installed Debian Lenny with Xfce4. The install went better than I expected, however I would have expected to have selected 'laptop' along with standard and desktop, but that wasn't one of my choices. So everything works great except there doesn't seem to be a GUI network setting so that I can setup a wireless network. I tried installing Network Manager from Aptitude but I am unsure how to get that to show on my desktop menu. Sorry this is most likely a really dumb question, but in messing with live cd's I was familiar with some sort of network manager. Any help is greatly appreciated.

OS: Linux Mint 13 Mate (Lisa)
Is there any alternative network manager for Lisa? Hopefully already you have known about the bug of gnome network manager. However, at this moment I have to activate my (DSL) net connection every time by using below command:
sudo pkill -9 NetworkManager
Kind help is appreciated

Network manager 'Auto Ethernet' Wired Connection Will Not Connect
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2010
I've got a shiny new Dell laptop running the Dell factory install of Ubuntu 9.10. Wireless networking works like a champ. Wired networking, not so much.
I've got network manager handling both connections -- for good or ill. Both wired and wireless were configured through network manager. The wireless works like a champ, even after being edited for a static IP. But as soon as I plug in a network cable, I can't get anywhere. Ping says "unknown host" to anything I put in. I've got all the lights and settings I'd expect for a working connection, but no working connection. And as soo as I unplug the wire, the wireless connection takes over again and everything is fine. Any ideas?

No wireless option shown in Ubuntu 12.10 Network Manager Acer AO756
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 7, 2013
I recently bought an Acer Aspire One 756 and installed Ubuntu 12.10. Things have been working fine and I have no problem using the wired connection at home. However, the network manager does not give me the option to "Enable Wireless" as it did on my previous notebook. There is only the option to "Enable Networking". No wireless connections are shown.
If I enter the "Edit Connections..." dialogue and open the "Wireless" tab, I am given the option to add a wireless connection manually. I don't know if that would work since I don't know about the information I'm prompted to enter.
Please let me know about any commands I can run to gather more information about the problem. Thank you in advance!
