Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:19 EST
Description of problem:
Network manager refuses to connect automatically to wireless or wired network.
I always have to manually select the connection I want. It fails to
1) connect to a wired or wireless connection on resume
2) connect to wireless connect on login
3) connect to wireless connection on disconnect of wired connection
4) connect to wired connection after reconnecting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I must use the applet menu to select the connection
Dell Lattitude D620 using the b43 wireless driver.
could you make sure the connections are marked autoconnect? Up to and including
Test3, autoconnect was not set as default because the code wasn't there to let
NM choose the correct network. So if you haven't cleared your GConf since
Test3, you'll probably have the 'autoconnect' option not set.
Run 'gconf-editor' and drill down to /system/networking/connections. You'll see
a list of the connections. Run through them and in the 'connection' folder of
each one you want to autoconnect, and check the 'autoconnect' option.
Yup that was it. I works fine now. Sorry for the false alarm.
no problem, thanks for the report!
