M12 Debian Xfce - Remove Network Connections

Postby DataMan » Sat May 05, 2012 6:12 am


To permanently remove eth1 & eth2 network connections.

I want to permanently remove these 2 connections (wired ethernet). I'm on wireless and don't want to spend the system resources at bootup scanning these connections. I've been through the Setttings and System options but haven't found a way to remove.

Any proven success stories out there?

1)Right click on wired/wireless conection on panel
2) click on edit conections
3) on wired tab click on conection want to delete
4) then click deleate button (will ask password/sudo rights)

P.S. I have to use wired for install, then get wireless driver (not included/setup in ISO)
make sure wired cable unplugged, otherwise system will keep checking every startup (way sys works normally) :wink:
