Ubuntu Networking :: Nm-connection-editor Eth0 Not Managed?
Apr 23, 2011
I'm getting rather fed up with this Network Manager applet on Ubuntu and its seemingly erratic behaviour. I often use my laptop for things like dhcp server to do pxe boot on other machines for netboot installs and other stuff. Often I have to set static address on eth0 etc. I know how to set a static address for eth0 by editing /etc/network/interfaces and all that good stuff, but when I click on the Network Manager applet, it says 'Wired Network - not managed'. I may have deleted it for some reason, but why does it no longer appear, even though eth0 is working? I've also found in the past that changes to interfaces in the Network Manager, such as giving eth0 a static address, do not seem to stick? It seems the only thing this applet is useful for is connecting to a wireless network.....and only with dhcp !!

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.
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.

when I first installed it on my IBM thinkpad, the eth0 was working correctly. I had someone try to install the network card for me, and something was changed to where now the wired connection is displaying "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:192.168.1.100 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::213:d3ff:fedd:1279/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
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.
If I uncheck and recheck "Enable Networking" in the Network Manager Applet 0.7.996 I would expect the wired network to disconnect (which it does) and reconnect (which it does NOT). So I tried sudo ifdown eth0 and got
Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
ifconfig tells me
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:64:e8:18:2c inet addr:192.168.0.112 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::225:64ff:fee8:182c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
so I am at a loss. How do I stop and restart the network interface short of rebooting the machine?
I have recently upgraded the ubuntu desktop edition from 8.04 to 10.04. after upgrading i cannot show my eth0 nic interface in the System > Preferences > Network connections----- wired tab. and i also not getting network indication in the top of the panel beside the date time indication. but i can access network and using internet with that lan card. i cant understad my eth0 is connected or unpluged..
I have two connections for my PC, my Ethernet which is on the corporate network and my smart phone on 'usb0'. Both have full internet access.I want to stop my PC from connecting to the internet over the Eth0 while still connecting to internal servers then just have internet over usb0.If I go to the settings of 'Auth Ethernet' in the tray area, under IPv4 there is the routings section - I've tried enabling "use this connection only for resources on its network" but it doesnt work.
I've got access to my LAN and the Internet via my wired ethernet connection. I'd like to share that access with my iPod Touch (device shouldn't really matter) via an Ad-hoc wi-fi network.
This tutorial in the docs seems to describe the right setup but is very out of date (7.04). Instead I found this tutorial and followed it to create the Ad-hoc wireless network. I was able to connect my touch to the resulting ad-hoc network without a problem, but I didn't have LAN/Internet access.What's the next step to get the clients on the ad-hoc network out to the Internet?I found this page in the docs that says I'd need to install dnsmasq-base and uninstalling dnsmasq. I checked and dnsmasq-base is already installed but dnsmasq is not. I do have dnsmasq in /usr/sbin but the package description makes it sound like this should come with dnsmasq. Is the page out of date? Will uninstalling dnsmasq cause other problems?
I am trying to sort out some issues following an upgrade from F12.
I have eth0 as the connection I want to use. Prior to the upgrade, this connection was enabled and active at boot.
Now, for some reason after the upgrade it has to be manually enabled at every boot - even though when I go the Network tool, Ethernet Device > General tab - "Activate device when computer starts" is checked.
At every boot time it is inactive.
In all the ifcft-eth0 files, the ONBOOT parameter is set to "yes".
I have my ubuntu box hard wired into my network. It all works fine, until I reboot my ubuntu box. After reboot, it can no longer see the network. I have it set up with a static ip. Not sure that I set it up completely correctly but it works fine...when working.. To fix the problem, I enter terminal: ifup eth0 That fixes all know problems until next reboot. What do I need to do so that it will remember settings and automatically be hooked into the network at power up?
I have a question regarding the configuration of Network Connection. My wired connection is fine right now and when I check the network connection applet, it display active information of eth0. However, when I click the Configure button, the Network Connection window appears but there's nothing in the Wired panel. Should there be a eth0 in that panel? I remember I had one before, but after I messed with some configuration of VPN, my network became unstable and I remove the Network Manager to try to solve the problem. Since then, there's nothing in my Network Connection window, though I can still connect to my router with eth0. Now even after I reinstalled the Network Manager, I still don't get anything.
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?
5.10 Breezy configured as machine controller. Works great eth0 is a fixed IP to communicate with controller comms board. Not easy at all to alter - the comms board is hard coded to listen on eth0 for commands.
I can use eth1 as the default gateway and ping google.com, etc. But when I now attempt to communicate with the controller with netcat, e.g.
Code: echo !HH | nc 192.168.1.6 80
I obviously never get an answer since the request is passed via eth1. Using the -g option with netcat doesn't work either. I had a look at iptables but it doesn't seem to be able to do what I want. How I can still use eth0 as my communication port to the controller whilst eth1 is the default gateway?
I have two servers on a vlan at my datacentre/colocation and previously both servers had public IPs on their eth0 interfaces. The servers are HP ProLiant DL360s - one is a G4 and one is a G5 The newer G5 is now the LAMP server and the G4 has been retired and I want to repurpose it as an iSCSI target using openfiler freenas or similar.
My G5 has public/static IPs lashed to the eth0 physical interface and the eth1 is not configured to do anything yet. The G4 will have both interfaces available - perhaps one for ssh access from one of my static public IPs and the other to be a private IP on the local vlan. Here is what I am trying to get my head around...
The G5 eth0 - Public IP - full LAMP services on two or three virtual interfaces eth1 - Private IP 192.168.0.1 The G4 eth0 - Public IP for ssh eth1 - Private IP 192.168.0.2
Because my traffic between eth1 on these boxes is via private IPs on the local private vlan it doesn't add to my quota for bandwidth. How do I go about configuring the routing and gateways and other aspects of this so that I can run a private IP space network between the eth1s and still serve the outside world from the eth0s...
I am afraid that if I assign the private IPs to the eth1 interfaces the routing may either not work or interfere with the access to the production internet facing interfaces (eth0s).
I'm running a dual boot Ubuntu 10.04/Backtrack 4 (Ubuntu 8.10) system. I can get internet in the BT4 side but not in the Lucid side. In Lucid I can ping my router, and the network manager says I'm good to go, but I can't get to any web sites. It all started when I tried to put my laptop on another network by mimicking the settings of a computer I had just unplugged from the network. MAC address and all.
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1f:16:ba:4c:8c inet addr:10.136.9.147 Bcast:10.136.9.159 Mask:255.255.255.240 inet6 addr: fe80::21f:16ff:feba:4c8c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I have a problem with my internet connection this is the picture the device is Realtek RTL8187. i didn't know how can i manage this device to work so could you help me i don't have an internet connection in ubuntu right know and i really wanna move to ubntu my verison is 9.10
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?
I'm trying to get a wireless PC (PCMCIA?) card working under 10.04 desktop. It does not seem to be recognized by nm-applet and I cannot see any particular reason why. I have disabled the built in wireless (Intel 2200) in both BIOS and by blacklisting the appropriate module so there should be no interference from that. The card is a Linksys WPC300N V1. It has Power and Link/Act LEDs both of which remain dark.
Here's the information I have collected regarding the card:
I saw a comment about 'You need to have "managed=true" for NetworkManager to bring the interfaces up. in '/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf and did so but I see no change.
I understand that modules must be compiled to support network-manager but I would expect that to be the case with modules that ship with 10.04. I don't see any obvious indications for why this is not coming up with network-manager. Is there something I;m overlooking or something else I need to do?
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 ?
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?
