Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager Pppoeconf Device Not Managed?

After the use of pppoeconf, the network manager does not recognise neither the wired nor the wireless connection anymore. (It nicely did it before that) I tried to replace the etc/network manager folder with that of a different machine. Still the same. What else can I do to reset Network Manager ?

Fedora Networking :: Eth0 No Longer Managed In NM - Device Not Managed ?
I use my T61 both wireless and in the dock, where I switch to the wired connection. After the latest round of updates, I seem to have lost the ability to switch to the wired network. When I turn the laptop on, I see it connect to the wireless network, but when I left click on the tray icon under Wired Network is says Device not managed. I have not made any changes to anything in the last couple weeks, besides some updates. How do I go about getting the wired network back in there?I tried to add eth0 back into System - Preferences - Network Connections, but whenever I try and add eth0, but it still says Device not managed.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.04 - Internet - Wired Network - Device Not Managed
I'm having trouble getting onto the internet with ubuntu 9.04. I have just moved house and have just got the internet set up here (typing this on windows laptop with wireless). My ubuntu desktop is plugged in to the network, but in the top right hand corner when I click on the network icon I get: "Wired network device not managed"

In my old house I had a static IP. Is this anything to do with it?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Asus USB-N13 Not Managed By Network Manager
Just purchased a Asus USB-N13, and having follwed a mixture of tutorials, including the readme on the driver disk, i have had no luck in getting this adapter to work.Upon using "sudo iwlist ra0 scan" the adapter can see multiple networks, however device manager is stating that the device is not managed. How can I get this sorted and connect to a network?

Debian :: NetworkManager Applet Shows No Network While Connected - Wired Network Device Not Managed
I'm running Squeeze and I'm looking 3 days now for a solution in some weird problem. The NetworkManager Applet shows that there isn't connection although I am connected. The icon has this small "x" and when mouseover it says "No network conncection". Moreover when left clicking it, it says

"Wired Network Device not managed"

While I was looking for the solution a came across this post by an Ubuntu developer who says:network-manager-applet displays the connectivity state of network-manager's managed interfaces not every interface. So the title "network manager says disconnected but is connected and working" is actually misleading. The interface is connected and working but not from network-manager's point of view since it is not managing the interface. Additionally, in Lucid now network-manager applet displays nothing now for non-managed interfaces so is less misleading. You can check to see whether or not an interface is managed by network-manager by using the command line too nm-tool. You'll see "State: unmanaged" for unmanaged interfaces.

Fedora Networking :: Eth0 Connection Failed - Device Not Managed By NetworkManager
Yesterday I did an upgrade and today my box is unable to connect to the internet.

I have tried another cable, it didn't help.

Basically NetworkManager does not connect eth0 to the network, if I try to run ifup from the command line I get:


I can see in network configuration settings, that the device has been correctly detected and eth0 interface is correctly activated, yet when I try to uncheck the box manage by NetworkManager and start it manually, it tells me that the cable is disconnected... I've tried two different cables, different ports on my router - no help.

Fedora Networking :: Bridged Networking And NetworkManager - No Network Connection Because Network Isn't Managed
I have installed qemu/kvm and created a Bridged network connection which works just fine(Windows 7 VM won't work in NAT mode.)

But when I try to use NetworkManager it says that I have no network connection because the network isn't managed, (I set the settings in ifcfg-br0 and ifcfg-eth0 to be managed)

The real problem is that now I can't use my VPN connections (I have many) in NetworkManager.

Is there a way to have both of these pieces of functionality?

I am using FC14

Networking :: Managed To Use WPA Encryption Over A Wired Network?
Has anyone ever tried or managed to use WPA encryption over a wired network? I know it sounds kinda pointless, but it was just an idea I had. I really just asking for experiences if anyone has ever tried playing around in this way rather than actually implementing it (hence I'm not actively searching the Internet for howtos and stuff).

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Connection Not Working "device Not Managed"?
My wireless connection has been giving me some problems, so I decided to try a wired connection directly to the router. However, when I try to do that, it doesn't work. When I click the network manager icon, it says that the wired device is not managed.

ifconfig gives this:

Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:13:d3:dd:12:79
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::213:d3ff:fedd:1279/64 Scope:Link


I ran sudo dhclient to try release and renew my IP, in case that was the problem. It released and renewed successfully, but still didn't connect to the Internet.

General :: Connection Activation Failed - Device Not Managed
I installed Linux 6, configured the network during the install with a static IP and when I do an ifconfig command it doesn't show an IP Address. Can't get out to the Internet because I don't think I have an IP/Address. I restarted network, went into preferences-network connections and everything looks fine, ran system-config-network and everything looks fine. When I do an ipup ifcfg-eth0 and get the message "Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetworkManager". Is there an option I failed to load at install or I need to install now?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Broadcom Device Not Managed - Cannot Connect To Internet
Currently my setup is a road runner cable modem connected to a desktop via a ethernet cable. The networkmanager lists "Broadcom BCM440-BO 100BaseTX" device not managed. I've turned off the power to both the cable modem and the computer. I then turned on the power to the cable modem and then the computer. If I try the firefox browser, it can not connect to the internet.

Ubuntu Networking :: "Split" Network Interfaces - How Airmon-ng Let Use Wireless Card In Managed And Monitor Mode
Can you "split" a network interface in Ubuntu, similar to how airmon-ng lets you use your wireless card in managed and monitor mode, by making another interface out of the same hardware? I know it'd be slower, but I'd still like to do it.

I have got the following Problem: I installed the 64 bit lxde Debian version...

Networking :: Network "not Managed" After Hibernation
I'm running Linux Mint 9 KDE on a HP 6735s laptop. Wired internet connection worked out of the box; for wireless I had to install some propietary wireless drivers (Broadcom) before I could connect to my home wifi.Last night the laptop stayed on while running on batteries, and it eventually shut itself down when the batteries ran out. Today I have no connectivity whatsoever; not wired, not wireless. The network tray icon says "not managed".

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Eth0 Not Up After Pppoeconf
I recently installed Lucid 10.04 on a P-IV desktop. The install went extremely smooth and Ubuntu was up and running. Hats off to the Ubuntu folks for the excellent user-friendly experience in the installation process. However , I have run into a networking issue. I connected my PC to the router issued by my ISP. This is a plug-n-play type of connection where the username/password settings are stored in the router and there is no configuration required in Ubuntu for accessing the internet. All I need to do is connect the router and my PC using the LAN cable. I was able to surf the net without any issues.

A few days later , this ISP service was down and hence I switched to another wired ISP. This ISP required me to dial a connection using another supplied router. I setup the connection using pppoeconf where I was asked to enter username/password. Again I was able to surf the internet without any issues. Next , I shutdown the system and before booting it , I switch back to my original ISP connection (the plug-n-play one). But now I am not able to connect to the internet. The router lights show that my PC is connected to it , but when I issue ping to check connectivity with the router configuration, I get

$ ping
connect : Network is unreachable.
Also , issuing ifconfig does not show eth0.
NM-applet also does not appear in my notification panel at the top.
How I can go back to using my original plug-n-play ISP connection? I have read some posts about networking issues , but none quite like this one. Please note that all my Internet connections are Wired connections.

Here is my interfaces file
$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface dsl-provider inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
provider dsl-provider
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

Fedora Installation :: FC12 New Install Network Manager Not Showing Activate Or Device?
I just brought up FC12 on our VSphere to begin testing..The nic did not configure properly for some reason.. I was able to go to command line, and do an "ifup ifcfg-eth0" and DHCP got an address. Go into GNOME - System-Administration - Network , or system-config-network the "Activate/Deactivate" is greyed out. Also, GNOME - System-Administration - Network Device Control show NO device..

Ubuntu Networking :: Nm-applet Disappeared After Using Pppoeconf?
i have some trouble connecting to the wireless of the dormitery where i live in. so that is what i already did: connecting to the hidden wireless network via nm-applet i typed in my personal user data using "sudo pppoeconf" connecting to the internet using "pon dsl-provider"

so after i did that everything was working out very well and i was able to use the internet without a problem! but after i restarted the computer the nm-applet was gone so i can't connect to the hidden wireless network anymore. if i try to start nm-applet manually the terminal says:

jonas@jonas-K50AD:~$ nm-applet
An instance of nm-applet is already running.
(nm-applet:1962): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager.
if i end nm-applet using the system monitor and try to restart it again i get the following output:
jonas@jonas-K50AD:~$ nm-applet
