Re: Network Manager vs Ubuntu acceptance

"NETWORK MANAGER IS USELESS JUNK!!

If you're not connecting DHCP via an ethernet cable then either expect not to get a connection"

And even if you are, expect to not get a connection if the link goes down and comes back up - every time I reset my router I am forced to ifconfig ethX down && ifconfig ethX up manually to get network access back again.

Network Manager is a nice idea, but doesn't do the job.
