Re: Network Manager does not work


Actually, I have done some more digging. And the hp-wmi module is loaded. I am not sure if it is the NetworkManager problem or something else.

Actually my problem is exactly like this guy's problem:

I know you are going to say all this is not related to NetworkManager. But how was I supposed to know that beforehand. I was looking at all possibilities. To me, initially at least, gnome and suse and novell and hp BroadCom and NetworkManager could all be the problem.

and right now I am looking in the /etc/modprobe.d/ directory where I can't find a conf file for my Broadcom wlan device. Not sure though.

Anyways, sorry to bother you with this.

After 2 days, and eating the brain out of 4,5 really helpful guys on suse irc channel, I think I traced down my problem to the hp-wmi module. Even after modprobe, the hp-wmi module does not show up in lsmod queries ... I don't know if this is relevant for the other guys or not.

"HP laptop WMI hotkeys driver". How is that related? Is it because of a hot key to enable/disable the wlan?
