Fwd: Having a hard time with NetworkManager on ArchLinux

Hello Nate,

Thanks for writing back.

I did what you instructed and this is the result of the command that you specified:

# systemctl list-unit-files | grep -i network
netctl network_connectio_at_home service   enabled
NetworkManager-dispatcher.service          disabled
NetworkManager-wait-online.service         disabled
NetworkManager.service                     disabled
network-online.target                      static 
network.target                             static

Whenever I bring up NetworkManager (not any other services), my manually established connection dies and I would need to go through re-establishing it anew.  At first I was not getting NetworkManager to work as I wanted it to, which is why I tried messing with NetworkManager-wait-online (I'm new to ArchLinux and to the deeper portions of Linux internals, hence this decision out of frustration and not knowing what else to do.)

If there is anything else that I'm missing, please let me know.  I'll disable the wait-online, I don't think I need it.

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.
