Re: wifi connection manager recommenadations
I recall there is / was a problem with network-manager not liking it
when you have the '/etc/network/interfaces' setup with the wireless
interface. here is a copy of my interfaces file if it any help.
$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp
after getting it working, but some problems still remain
1) the WPA passphrase/psk key doesn't get saved and, therefore, i have
to enter it on each reboot. is there an easy way how to get it running?
this is probably kwallet/gnome-keyring related issue, but i am not using
neither kde nor gnome.
2) knetworkmanager seems to be more powerful than nm-applet. however,
the first one behaves strangely. e.g., if i enter bad passphrase (or
psk, instead), it gets stuck at 28% during connection phase and stays
there. clicking on the name of the network in the applet brings back
this window and it is not possible to change it. in nm-applet, both
passphrase and psk work...
any hints are gratefully appreciated!
