Networkmanager unstable connection


I’m having some difficulty with Network Manager. It connects, and occasionally runs just fine, but then an issue rears it’s ugly head and my connection drops so low that I’m literally unable to open web pages for a while. After initially suspecting my wireless, I plugged in and still had horrible load speeds, albeit somewhat better. I’m now suspecting NetworkManager may be the culprit. Has anyone had any similar issues they’ve resolved?

I’m not a complete newbie, but in networking I’m rather idiotic. My initial reaction to an issue is start smashing the power button on things.

Some specifics of my gear:

Toshiba Satellite L755
OpenSUSE 13.1
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (rev 35)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet (rev c1)

Unlikely. Network just manages the connection (sets it up and takes it down as needed). The actual handling of network data is still handled by the kernel in same way it would be handled if something other than NetworkManager were used.

Oh, okay. Well, that makes sense why restarting network manager didn’t work. I guess it’s back to looking at my wireless setup. I’ve read only good things about the wireless card and it could be coincidence that when I plugged in, my internet was just slow.

I’m going to move this to wireless since it can’t be network manager causing the issue.
