This bug looks a bit dusty, what is the status on this? I connect via eth0 to my ip provider which uses ppp0 and can't seem to connect using xenial. I'm wondering if this is the issue.
Right now I'm considering dropping back to Trusty which comes with an earlier version of network-manager and seems to be able to get me connected without an issue. Would love to see an update to this bug.

In network-manager I can set up my Ethernet (eth0) connection to connect to the local network and my ppp0e (ppp0) connection to the internet. When I click on network-manager, I only have radio-buttons to select the desired "wired connection" which only allows me to EITHER start eth0 OR ppp0. When I'm connected to the internet, I can't access the LAN and vice-versa. The ony solution for me right now is to use pppoeconf and configure the eth0-connection via config file, which of course breaks network- manager. What I am asking for is simple: Allow the use of more than just one "wired connection" in network-manager (ditch the radio buttons and make them "multiple choice"?) here's my etc/network/interfaces: (comments were made by me for better readability here, they're not in the file itself) ##BEGIN interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto dsl-provider iface dsl-provider inet ppp pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf provider dsl-provider auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.0.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 ##END interfaces System is 8.10 with all the latest updates, network-manager is: network-manager: Installiert: 0.7~~svn20081018t105859-0ubuntu1 Kandidat: 0.7~~svn20081018t105859-0ubuntu1 Versions-Tabelle: *** 0.7~~svn20081018t105859-0ubuntu1 0 500 http://at.archive.ubuntu.com intrepid/main Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/network-manager/+bug/290639/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
