Wireless network manager not responding (Solved)

Postby WinCrasher on Sun Nov 04, 2012 4:10 pm

I click the icon. The panel comes up. I click a command. the panel disappears. Nothing happens. Lather, rinse, repeat.

This just started a couple days ago. So I am still on the network I was on then. I try to connect to my RazR phone as I have done many times bfore and the above is what happens. The Manager sees the network, and the phone disappears when I shut it off. It just won't connect. It's like as if I click outside the box.

Not sure if this is related, but I tried to update FireFox (16.0.2) about the same time and got an error code 127. I've tried several times since with the same result. All other updates (about 50) worked fine Only FF gave error code 127

Here are the details of the failed FF installation. There were several new updates ready so I tried again. Again FF was the only one that failed to update. Should I shut down FF while updating? I have tried restarting.

Is more info needed? It's easy to find info on how to do something. It's more difficult to find out what to do when something goes wrong.

This is the initial message I get when the update fails. I just did another update and once again, FF was the only failure. I am new to LM and I no longer have Windows on my computer.

Well It's been a month and 150 views and still no response to my issue. It hasn't gone away on it's own either. I still can't update FF and my network manager still doesn't work. If I need to provide more info I am perfectly willing to.

I understood that this was a forum where I could post questions and get answers. But most of the Solved posts I have seen have been sovled by the person that posted the problem. Oh well.

This is a long time responding, but I actually solved this one on my own. I simply opened the software manager, did a quick search and installed a new Network Manager.
