Network Manager?
« on: January 29, 2019, 06:11:11 pm »
Is there a Network Manager to install for Sparky?  For some reason on occasion on startup my wifi interface is discovered. Several reboots later it is discovered.  I don't find a network manager in my default installation of Sparky but I have to believe one exists.  I tried searching APTus for one without success.

Sparky 4 or Sparky 5  What DE? Do you have a network widget on your panel? 

Are you posting on the Sparky install via wireless?     


probably network-manager
 command line for it is nmcli
   lxqt has connman  - ncureses cli is connmanctl 

Problems, via command line post output of lspci    if usb dongle also post output of  lsusb       or - simpler (if inxi is installed)

inxi -Nnx    example
Code: [Select]
inxi -Nnx
Network:   Card-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
           driver: r8169 v: 2.3LK-NAPI port: e000 bus-ID: 02:00.0
           IF: enp2s0 state: up speed: 1000 Mbps duplex: full mac: 40:8d:5c:72:9d:65
           Card-2: Realtek RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter usb-ID: 003-007
           IF: N/A state: N/A mac: N/A

Sparky 5 Openbox
 
nmcli exists & works

I don't find connman  - ncureses cli is connmanctl

Wireless is working, it usually does but on occasion it does not, when that happens the OS doesn't find the wireless interface. Then after a few reboots everything works again.

I see your machine as having been running for almost 2 weeks without a reboot or poweroff.  I could be wrong.  If it has  been 13 days, power it down completely and bring it back up.  Laptop?  You may have just been hibernating or suspending it.  Again, I could be wrong. 

Intel wifi info
https://wiki.debian.org/iwlwifi     Note - it it a little stale - old.  You are in Buster, not Stretch.

Double check to see if firmware-iwlwifi in installed ( should be automatically installed in Sparky)
 "aptitude show firmware-iwlwifi  | less"     ##  or use aptus or syanptic

Have you performed any full-upgrades in the last 2 weeks?  Some of the upgrades will not take effect until after you have rebooted or powered down. 

And finally, do you have a problem with network access via ethernet.
