No more network-manager for me!
I have had issues with network-manager ever since I began using it. It would ask me to enter a password to log onto my network. Then, it would ask me again and again to sign into my network, and sometimes it would shut my card down. Well no more, I have uninstalled network-manager, and have gone to the “Network” application instead, which logs me in automatically, and also gives me a high-speed connection. I can also “see” the other wireless networks around me, including their signal strength. I can set up multiple locations, and connect in a snap.
I am sure network-manager works fine for other people who do not have Broadcom wireless cards, but for me, the network application is what I will be using from now on.
