Hello (Using Lubuntu 11.10),

I just installed a D-Link DWL-G520+ PCI Wifi card and installed the Win2000 drivers using Ndiswrapper.

Drivers are working fine as I can scan for wireless networks. However my Networking icon in the taskbar displays 'Networking disabled'. I have right-clicked it and ticked 'Enable Wireless' but everything is still grayed out if I edit my connections. Wired ethernet is working great but I can't see any setting for the LAN either.

I read through jaguare22's post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1719366 and look to be having the same problem. I have tried uninstalling ConnMan using

Code:
sudo apt-get remove ConnMann
But is isn't installed like I thought by default. I can restart the network-manager service but that makes no difference.

My /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
Code:
[main]
NetworkingEnabled=true
WirelessEnabled=true
WWANEnabled=true
I don't have a /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
Could that be my issue? Seems nm-tool can't connect to Network Manager.

Thanks.

Code:
  sudo lshw -C network
