Re: NM looses connection and/or doesn't use dhcp

It continues to happen. This time I found that my wired interface was now down and my wireless interface was connected (to the neighbor) but I never made this change at all. What is the deal here? This is very annoying! Why is NetworkManager randomly switching interfaces and randomly changing my IP? This is seriously annoying. I know it is NetworkManager because I can stop it and start my normal net service and my wired connection will stay connected. While NetworkManager is enabled I have checked and any network interface services or plugdev service is stopped. So I guess for now I have to leave NetworkManager disabled and use the old school setup until this is fixed within NetworkManager.

Man, no one knows? This is a reall big problem and should be fixed. Am I using an older version od NetworkManager and this has already been fixed then?

I have started to have some problems with networkmanager lately. I am running version 0.6.5_p20070823.

First thing: when I come home from work where I was connected using a static IP (at work I stop NM, set the static IP, then on reboot the PC goes back to it's dhcp settings) for some odd reason NM keeps setting my work IP and doesn't renew the IP for my home network. This is a recent occurrence and I can't figure out why it started doing it.

Secondly, at random times I will loose my connection. The IP is still there but I think NM messes up the default route info. Restarting NM fixes it or simply setting the default route manually does it. Why is it doing this?
