Obviously you have a problem but you chose the wrong solution. NM makes

I have never turned off network in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ or other place. You are saying I need to do this. Why has none of the mail in their list, the NetworkManager Gnome list said to do this?

I agree it might be important since both are trying to do the same thing. I put my Internet cable on my laptop with NetworkManager and it did it automatic. Just now to yum the madwifi software for F7 I put the cable in with just network running and I had to go to network and turn on eth0.

So there could be something to all this. I will test on this computer with no WiFi which makes it simple. Turn off network and turn on the new stuff. I WILL be looking for a problem.


If WiFi is working, NM is great.
If WiFi is not working, NM just adds to the problem,
since you don't know if the difficult lies in NM,
or in the underlying connection.

You should say, "NM made wireless easy for me".

I have a card in one laptop - Orinoco Classic Gold PCMCIA card -
which works perfectly without NM,
but which does not work with NM.
NM actually gives the log message, "Get another card"!

Basically, NM expects the WiFi device to have a certain scanning facility
which is not actually necessary for WiFi connection,
and which this Orinoco card does not have, at least as NM expects.
When your right you are right. NM does not work with some cards.
