NetworkManager: “When I’m good, I’m really really good. But when I’m bad.“. Some tricks I’ve found for troubleshooting NetworkManager:
- no network interfaces (except for lo) should be listed in /etc/network/interfaces. Any that are won’t be managed by NetworkManager
- remove old wireless configuration information by running gconf-editor &, and removing them from /system/networking/wireless/networks. Or, from the shell run this command to unset all at once: gconftool-2 –recursive-unset /system/networking/wireless/networks.
