    Re: Unity wireless icon - how to change for wired?

    "not managed" means that network manager is not responsible for your interface.

    I assume you have a DHCP server in your network
    You will have to edit /etc/network/interfaces to look like
    Code:
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    #iface eth0 inet dhcp
    (lines starting with a # are just comments, the important point is that no configuration for eth0 except 'auto' is stated)
    Then restart network manager

    Bingo - that's worked. I had to select Auto Ethernet from the network manager and then the wireless symbol changed for the arrows.

    I suppose this should really be filed under networking... since the wireless icon appeared only after I installed 11.10, I assumed it was something to do with the desktop environment.

    Thanks everyone.
