Network Manager issue in F9

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



I have 2 laptops running F9.  Both run NetworkManager.  On one, a Dell Inspiron 8600, when I run nm-tool I get the following output (for brevity I'm only showing the wired info since that's where the issue is):

NetworkManager Tool

State: connected

- Device: eth0 ----------------------------------------------------------------
  Type:              Wired
  Driver:            b44
  State:             connected
  HW Address:        00:0D:56:36:EB:13

  Capabilities:
    Supported:       yes
    Carrier Detect:  yes
    Speed:           100 Mb/s

  Wired Settings


Note that it says the status is connected.  On the other laptop, a Dell Precision Mobile M65, I get the following output

NetworkManager Tool

State: disconnected

- Device: eth0 ----------------------------------------------------------------
  Type:              Wired
  Driver:            tg3
  State:             unmanaged
  HW Address:        00:00:00:00:00:00

  Capabilities:
    Supported:       yes
    Carrier Detect:  yes
    Speed:           1000 Mb/s

  Wired Settings


Note that it says the state is disconnected despite the fact that I'm logged into the system remotely.  Also note that the MAC address associated with the wired interface is all 0's.  What's going on here?  Anybody else see this problem?  An lspci of the M65 shows:

The annoying aspect of this is that every time I start Firefox 3 it comes up in offline mode.  I've had to go back to Firefox 2 to get around this annoyance.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Paolo
