November 2nd, 2010, 03:51 AM
Hi, i want to configure the wireless NIC via wireless tools such as "iwconfig", but if network-manager is running, i can't connect to any ap via typing "iwconfig wlan0 essid XXXXX", i don't want to remove the network-manager or stop it, for that i need to config VPN and start it. so i wonder if i can change any setting to make the network-manager not to manage wireless , thanks ^^:popcorn:
