Network manager

Known issues

Network Manager does not reconnect. There is a race condition where at times the network will not connect because the user isn’t logged in yet. It occurs sporadically, but is easy for the user to fix.

  • Right-click Network Manager icon and select ‘Edit Connections’.
  • Click on the connection you are using, and select ‘Edit’.
  • Click and ‘General’ tab, and see if there is a check-mark in ‘All users may connect to this network’. If there isn’t, click the box to check it.
  • Click ‘Save’, then close out and reboot.

  1. Tried MX18 X32, on Dell D510. This is the first distro I have come across which sees WIFI card, loads driver but does not show wifi Icon. When in the Network Manager it is easy to get lost as it is designed for Linux engineers. It does not scan or see routers.
    Is there something missing of or it is not for keen IT Users,

    This seems pretty primitive by any standard. Please remind me which year this is 1990 of 2019.

    • I use MX Linux 19.4 x86_64 on my 2011 Dell Inspiron,
      MX Linux x86_64 AHS on my 2020 Dell Latitude 5490 and 7420.
      WiFi connects out of the box. Works perfect!

  2. This Linux is excellent except for the WiFi issues I have used Linux Mint Mate Manjaro and other Linux distributions and have not faced this WiFi issue Am I missing something basic ?

  3. was soll diese mieserable übersetzung ??????
    das ist keinesfalls deutsch, nur deutsche wörter.
    ergibt absolut keinen sinn, was da steht.

    besser keine übersetzung als diese

  4. The first thing that should come up after installation is MX Network Assistant. Setting up Wifi is a breeze with this. The problem is that people don’t even know it exists. You could look at Puppy Linux to see how they resolve this issue. It’s very basic and you could attack a lot more people to the distro.
