Re: NM won't connect to a wireless network on boot

If NM is trying to connect, it must think there's a link on the wired
card.  Can you do the following and post the results to this list?

- Without the cable plugged in, right after booting up, do:
cat /sys/class/net/eth0/carrier

if eth0 is not your wired network card, replace the 'eth0' with the
device name of your wired network card.  If that number is '1' and you
have  no cable plugged in, then the kernel driver is reporting that it
has a link, and the kernel driver for your card needs to be fixed.

Right after X has started, I open a terminal and run the command:

$ cat /sys/class/net/eth0/carrier

The nm-applet shows that the wired connection exists.
Just in case this means anything here's the output of dmesg | grep eth0:

eth0: Broadcom 4400 10/100BaseT Ethernet 00:0a:e4:57:49:9f
b44: eth0: Link is down.
