When I first set up Fedora 8, I had some problems getting wlan0 (via ndiswrapper) working. Now I can prevent wlan0 from being activated, even when I'm using a wired connection via eth0. I connect wirelessly at home and wired at the office. When I'm in the office, I have to turn off NetworkManager (using services), kill wpa_supplicant and nm-applet, and change config-services-network for wlan0 so it's not being controlled by NetworkManager. This lets me activate and use eth0. This works fine for about 30-60 minutes and then wlan0 gets activated and screws up accessing the network. Then I have to deactivate wlan0 and eth0, and re-activate eth0 so I can use the network again. I have to do this over and over. I have no clue as to why wlan0 is being activated with eth0 already being activated and I don't know what program is causing this to happen. I suspect it's something to do with NetworkManager because I never had this problem before using NM. But I don't know for sure. How can I prevent wlan0 from being activated??? Rick B.
