Network Manager Applet


I noticed using a GUI on Debian for the 1st time in some time, it's not working. I have full Internet in Gnome but the Network Manager Applet isn't working for whatever reason. It just say's 'no network connection' when in fact I do have a network connection. I installed Debian just as I did on another machine and it too has the same problem.

Is there a way to resolve this?

Since network-manager version 0.8.1-4, existing wired/wireless interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces are disabled with a #NetworkManager# prefix during package installation, then re-enabled when the network-manager package is removed (Debian bug 530024).

Do you have entries for eth0 in your /etc/network/interfaces?
If so, the system sets its network stuff grom there, way before nm starts.

Your connection is working but is not being managed by network manager.

Because... Your connection is working but is not being managed by network manager.

http://wiki.debian.org/NetworkManager

See the section "Wired Networks are Unmanaged".

I had a similar problem in Ubuntu 8.04 with an internal hardware modem. It was connected through pppconfig, connected automatically on bootup, worked great.

While I am sure you could, perhaps, get this recognized by NM, why bother and why worry about it. NM is just one of many gui front ends to something that is really doing the job.

The backend in your case is not associated with NM. I would ignore it.

Static

carlosinfl,

I remove network-manager. Go static. That is what I do.
I know that does not solve your problem but it will get you connected.
You can also use Wicd.
