    Wired connection has become unmanaged?

    My wired connection no longer appears in the network manager when clicking on the notification icon on the GNOME panel. To be more specific, beneath Wired Network in the tray icon pop-up it says "device is unmanaged".

    I may have inadvertently done something while editing configuration files. My question s: how do I get my wired connection back to being managed?

    These are the components that determine what happens.
    .

    open network gui
    d-click on eth0 line
    setup host, dhcp (or static, if static point primary dns to network dns, point Dns Search path to gatway)
    check use at startup
    check managed by network manager (if dhcp)
    close window
    click on dsn tab, if all looks good, then file, save, file quite. (do not restart network.)

    open services
    check network manager on (if dhcp), check network off (if dhcp).
    save, quit.
    reboot

    This should
    1. start network and use correct ip,. show wired icon on top panel if dhcp)
    2. use same host name for connections as internal. (except vituali nats or subnets use t hostname externally.)
    3. Allow http, yum types, windows shared samba types to connect

    For static ip's, more hostname resolutions parts may be needs (like hosts files, named, ...

    I have not verified staic much as i do not have that environment, but thave dhcp for F8, 9, 10.

    Checking "managed by network manager" worked for me but I could not get it to work by simply restarting X (ctrl-alt-backspace) or by restarting the network service. I had to reboot.

    Could this have been done without a reboot?

    Talking worked for me

    Thanks.
    Clicking "Controlled by network manager" did the trick for my f9 install.

    Cheers
