Wired Network “unmanaged” in Network Manager

December 16th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

System:

  • Debian testing – “wheezy”
  • Gnome 3.0+6
  • Network Manager 0.9.2.0-1

Issue:

  • WLAN works fine with NetworkManager
  • Wired Device (ethX) is marked as “unmanaged” and doesn’t work even if it gets DHCP-lease/IP-address
  • /etc/network/interfaces looks correct

Solution:

Change /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf :

...
[ifupdown]
managed=true
...

Reload Settings:

/etc/init.d/network-manager force-reload

    That’s one of the reasons I don’t use Linux on the Desktop anymore.

    That’s why I used Ubuntu for my Desktops. As mentioned, it is a Testing Debian. To be fair, this stage is not meant for Desktops anyway. ;)
