For those who want to stick to NetworkManager, II found out that the $ systemctl enable iwd.service $ systemctl start iwd.service from my initial post, should not be necessary and can cause conflict. Because NetworkManager is supposed to handle starting iwd, after iwd is added to the NetworkManager config file. That networkmanager does not handle iwd correctly, is a known issue with NetworkManager. We can only wait for it to get updated with future Fedora releases I guess. https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/-/issues/101 I am now also curious about non-networkmanager alternatives and their usability though. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
