Re: Only wireless, no eth0

I tried that:

Went to 'Wired' ->  Add 'Wired Connection', ticked both 'Connect
automatically' and 'Available to all users', asked me for my root
password, clicked 'Apply'.  But nothing, even my new entry has
disappeared when I open it up again.

Yes, sorry should've said that.  Network-Manager is 0.7.2-2

Hello all,

I've returned to the fold from Ubuntu, and installed Lenny yesterday,
followed by an immediate upgrade to Squeeze.

Everything works great, except I'm connected via wireless, not the
ethernet.  I've only just noticed this(!) when I accidentally clicked
on the icon in the system tray (I'm using Gnome), where I was informed
that 'Wired Network' is 'device not managed'.

Unplugged my ethernet cable, and yup, sure enough, I'm still connected
to the net.  What puzzles me is that at no time was I quizzed for the
modem's password...

Anyway, this is the first laptop I've ever owned (Compaq Presario
CQ70), so have no idea how to get it stop connecting via wireless and
to eth0 - I've had a quick dig around to see if I could see anything,
but to no avail.



You're using Gnome with Network-Manager, right?

If you right-click on NM's icon, you will see the option 'Edit Connections'.
Use it to tell NM to manage your Ethernet as well.

My personal taste-driven oppinion : get rid of NM, connect to Ethernet the old-fashioned way and use wicd for WLAN. :)
