Somewhere around the upgrade from Kubuntu 12.10 to 13.04, NetworkManager

In the past, after waking from suspend, I would connect within a few
seconds. Now it takes minutes. The exact time is erratic. Mostly it is
around the two minute mark, but very rarely it takes ~10 seconds.

Can you grab some logs from wherever your distro puts syslog 'daemon'
output?  That's
probably /var/log/daemon.log, /var/log/NetworkManager.log,
or /var/log/syslog.

If it's taking ages to find the network, I suspect that the network
simply isn't found in a wifi scan.  What wifi hardware do you have and
what driver are you using?  If you can provide the output of "lspci" and
"lsusb" that would point us in the right direction.


However, if I click on the (KDE) network plasmoid and manually select my
wifi network, I connect within a couple of seconds. It looks like a
regression to me, but I'm happy to provide more information if necessary.
