NetworkManager & connman

Postby thammr » 2017-11-17 01:24

I recently installed Debian 9 on my old PC. The internet access was working fine. I was looking for software to display the wifi signal strengths and found cmst. I installed this and completely broke wifi and internet access.
After lots of research, I became convinced that connman was installed along with cmst. So I disabled the connman service and rebooted. Now I consistently get a wifi connection but no internet.
I discovered that /etc/resolv.conf was a link to connman's resolv.conf. So I deleted the link and created a link to NetworkManagers resov.conf.
Now I have internet.
Problem is, every time I reboot, something is setting this link back to connman's resolv.conf.
Any idea what is causing this - connman is NOT running.

May I suggest that you purge both of those and use
Code: Select all
# iwconfig wlan0 | grep -i --color signal

or
Code: Select all
watch -n 1 cat /proc/net/wireless
