Re: Debian 5 server - auto-reconnect to wireless networks?

The network manager package description says it "is not intended for
usage on servers". If you want an interface to be permanently up,
without even logging in, you should set it up in
I'll second that. I have a similar situation (no wired eth port) and
went for the fixed-IP solution, disabling DHCP and network manager for
the wireless interface. That said, however, I also have a laptop with
network manager and it *does* re-connect to the wireless network every
time my router gets reset. I think this may depend on the default
wireless network(s) you configure through right-clicking on the network
applet and selecting "Edit wireless networks". IIRC, network manager is
designed to automatically connect (and re-connect) to any network you
have configured there.
That said, *sometimes* my network manager simply fails to reconnect; I
always thought the network driver I'm using (the proprietary Broadcom
wl.ko) was the culprit.
