Reset all network config to default?


Right now my computer doesn't connect to wifi on boot.

It is set to tho. I've played with the priority number. This all started happening after I used the computer to configuring some routers. I disabled automatic connections and vpn and stuff and playing around with network settings in order to get them set up, which I did successfully, then thought I set everything back to normal.

Except it's not behaving. Unless there's an obvious solution, is there a way to delete all network related configuration and re-configure like fresh install or anything.

Hi enigma.

Apologies if you've tried this already. I've no idea if it will do any good but here goes.

Looking at your screenshot, you appear to have the Network Configuration gadget loaded and on your shelf, five icons to the right of the clock gadget. Click on this and check that you have both Enable Networking and Enable WiFi (or whatever it's called) selected. If you've done this already, then click on Edit Connections to bring up the Network Connections page.

In the Network Connections page, you should be able to select and delete each WiFi connection by clicking on it and then clicking on the "-" sign. I would try deleting everything, then immediately rebooting in the hope that it comes up in the default state and you can then put back in your wireless connection.

If that doesn't work, or you've tried it already then please let us know.

I'm pretty sure I did try that, but doesn't hurt to try again. I'll do right now and reboot and see what happens.

No dice. Deleted the wifi connection and the lan connection while I was at it. Rebooted, no automatic connection, but that's expected now. Selected my wifi network, entered password, connected. Changed general settings to enable vpn. Rebooted. Did not connect automatically to anything. Rebooted again to be sure. Did not connect. Selected my network, it didn't ask password now since it's stored, connected. Rebooted. Still doesn't connect automatically. I dunno.

The only thing different looking than the screenshot I already posted is now the 'all users' box isn't checked and priority set to '0'.

Both of those things I'd played with previously attempting to fix it, I'd checked that box and I'd increased priority, but being as that's the only wifi network available priority shouldn't come in to play if I understand correctly anyway.
