Hello everyone,

I'd really like to be able to better manager my network connections on my
laptop.  At the library, there is no authentication.  At home, I do have
WAP authentication.  Going from one to another is anything but smooth.

I've been following this example online:

However, when I got to the part about NetworkManager-wait-online, I
encountered these issues:

Thoughts on how to fix this problem?  Or, if you know of a better
tutorial/guide, I'd love to hear about it.
This guide only suggests enabling the NetworkManager-wait-online.service "if you have services which fail if they are started before the network is up".  Are you utilizing any services that are failing because it doesn't have a network connection yet?  If you disable the wait-online systemd service, do things run more smoothly?

Also, have you tried the recommended solution in that Arch Wiki entry to increase the timeout for the wait-online service?

I too use NetworkManager on a Arch Linux 64-bit system, but I have the wait-online service service disabled since I do not have any processes that need it.  Could you post the status of all your NetworkManager systemd services?  You can run the following command:

  systemctl list-unit-files | grep -i network
