Disabling Network Manager


I am trying to enable Internet access on my computer. The guide for the ASUS adapter I am trying to use says the command is /etc/init.d/network-manager stop. This file does not exist. I suspect that its name was changed before 14.04 and that there is a new name for it. I assume that iwconfig and ifconfig still have the traditional names.

If you are on a systemd based system, that would be "systemctl stop NetworkManager".

If you want to prevent it from starting on the next boot: "systemctl disable NetworkManager".

To enable the network legacy code to work: "systemctl enable network", then "systemctl start network".

I still have problems with any system that has more than one network interface active and using NetworkManager, so I nearly always disable NetworkManager.
