kde 14 network manager drops connection

Postby nixguy » Sun Feb 03, 2013 9:21 am

I posted this in the older version form by mistake

This works fine with cinnamon but not with kde
If i change my mac addrre the connectin drops....network manager still shows me as connected

This is what I am doing

ifconfig wlan1 down
ifconfig wlan1 hw ether aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa
or
macchanger -r wlan1 ##-- if I don't want to think about it and just make it random --##
ifconfig wlan1 up

I have to tell network manager to disconnect and connect again for it to work

Its a pain to do that....but in cinnamon you can spoof your Mac on the fly and connection if fine....anyone know why???
