Rewrite[edit]

I have just rewritten this article, based on the original article and newer sources. I've tried to be more NPOV and more encyclopedic in tone than the old write-up (eg, "awesome power", etc). Also, a good portion of original content was scraped off of an old version of the NetworkManager homepage, which is now referenced. Please bring up any issues. -Sphivo 11:28, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Add a picture?[edit]

I think it would be good to add a picture, maybe showing the network menu, and the create new network window?Stale Fries 05:39, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Perfect thought, a picture is available at http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/images/wireless-at-tealuxe.png Matthew/ThijsN 19:06, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

PPP[edit]

Can one use NetworkManager to configure and use PPP (and then disable DHCP or change it to use for WIFI - and so share the PPP connection using WiFi-). --Nopetro (talk) 13:26, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Still not under FreeBSD?[edit]

Is there still no NetworkManager under FreeBSD? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.225.34.210 (talk) 03:05, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

kde 4 module[edit]

On my *ntoo box the kde 4 module currently appears to be a part of solid and no longer has source code manage dir indicated in the article -- JamesB192 (Saturday November 14, 2009 @ ~11:38PM PST) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.60.80.18 (talk) 07:38, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

For unix-like systems?[edit]

Is there a port for other systems than linux? Any references for that?--95.91.62.194 (talk) 07:46, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

No there aren't. The NetworkManager is a Linux-only component for the Linux kernel.--Darktrym (talk) 05:02, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

netifd link[edit]

nm-tool?[edit]

I believe that nm-tool is also a tool provided by the same team that develops NetworkManager What about it?


Lack of information[edit]

There is no information, neither in the website , nor in the man pages as to what does the percentage shown on (mouse over) the nm-applet means


The netifd link seems to be stale. Cmcqueen1975 (talk) 02:29, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
