Hi – hope somebody can help me. I’m just about stumped After making things hard on myself, I realized there was something weird going on with this error message: Are you new to LinuxQuestions.

Then we done disabled the network and turned it back on and it came up with “disabled by hardware switch”. Then nm-applet starts trying to netork the connection again.

It also does the same with my mobile broadband. I had actually managed to remove, I think the HP driver, from the kernel, and that was a decent workaround.
