How To: NetworkManager in Debian Squeeze: Enabling Interface Management
As of Debian Squeeze, NetworkManager does not manage any interface defined in /etc/network/interfaces by default:
Since network-manager version 0.8.1-4, existing wired/wireless interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces
are disabled with a #NetworkManager# prefix during package installation, then re-enabled when the network-manager package
is removed (Debian bug 530024). Unmanaged devices
means NetworkManager doesn't handle those network devices. Enabling Interface Management:
If you want NetworkManager to handle interfaces that are enabled in /etc/network/interfaces:
Set managed=true in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf.
My wlan0 stettings within the NetworkManager are: „Use static IP settings“.
Therefor, I disabled the „auto wlano“ file entry in /etc/network/interfaces that would otherwhise conflict with a static setting by commenting it out.
