7.6. NetworkManager

NetworkManager is not enabled by default in Fedora, it is installed by default however. Enabling NetworkManager is a simple process of going to System > Administration > Services and checking Network Manager and Network Manager Dispatcher .


Make sure to save the modifications otherwise the changes will not be written to file. To start them straight away you will need to highlight Network Manager and Network Manager Dispatcher and click the Start button.
NetworkManager simplifies the process of connecting your laptop or desktop to the network. When you have enabled the programs you should see the nm-applet icon.
When it has been enabled you can right click on the icon and enable wireless or wired networks. Enabling both does not affect how NetworkManager operates.
If you have a wireless network and it is supported by Fedora left clicking on the icon and selecting Connect to other network and putting the details of your connection will cause NetworkManager to use that information to connect to the network.
