The proprietary driver wl is generally not the preferred driver for your 14e4:4727 device. Let's remove it: sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source And now we load the preferred driver: sudo modprobe brcmsmac It may take a reboot. Is there any improvement?

pppeoconf writes directly to /etc/interfaces, and network-manager doesn't like that. Interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces are no longer controlled by network-manager. You could change 'managed' to 'true' in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf file, but for some reason I forgot it's not recommended. I'd remove the entries from /etc/interfaces and use ...

You could also solve this problem easily with udev since a tun interface is removed when vpn connection drops. this rule will just disconnect from your wifi ap whenever a vpn connection is terminated, so you gotta reconnect manually again: Create a file /etc/udev/rules.d/81-vpn-firewall.rules, and add this rule to it: KERNEL=="tun0", ACTION=="remove", ...

The network connections used by Network Manager are stored in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections. Each connection has its own file with the connection name as its name. Open a terminal and delete the file associated with your connection with the rm command. For example, root@usermachine:/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections# rm filename Note: You ...

It seems that there are dependencies which are not removed. If you have not any private information to hide in your installed applications (i.e you do not mind revealing what applications you have installed), please give me your package list so that i could try and find out which application you have to remove. To do that, open terminal and type ls ...

First add the credentials in the connection configuration file, look for a file in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections called "MyVPN" and add the following section: [vpn-secrets] password=my_vpn_password Then add password-flags=0 and secret-flags=0 into the [vpn] section. Now you can easily create a connection to your new VPN with nmcli: nmcli con up ...

By reading this post, I've learned that there is number of ways to add or supersede the DNS servers provided by your network, however none of the solutions seemed to work. As user brad mentioned, dns is still being controlled by dnsmasq. ...
