View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gnome network-manger is disabled on every 2nd boot

July 7th, 2009, 01:48 PM

I am experiencing a major problem with the Gnome network-manager (nm-applet). When I boot my laptop there is 50% chance that the network-manager finds an existing network. After a reboot it finds about 15 networks and automatically connects me with the right one. This is pretty annoying as you can image because if you just want to like something, it can take several reboots and some time.

I already posted an answer (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+question/75985) and a bug on launchpad. One proposed but not working solution was the following:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop
sleep 30
sudo /etc/init.d/hal restart
sleep 5
sudo /etc/init.d/networking start

The necessary information about my laptop, wlan device, modules, kernel messages, etc. can be found under the following links:

Information when network is working: http://www.hk-vierseiter.de/working.txt
and failing: http://www.hk-vierseiter.de/failing.txt

It would be really glad if someone could help me out with a workaround as I have no idea what to do.

Thanks a lot!
