network manager has sucked for so long now, especially when you use wireless.

Even with simple things like detecting that a network cable is already plugged in can be missed when it detects a wireless network at startup.

To connect to my university wireless i had to install WICD which as far as wireless goes, beats NM hands down. At home i don't even install network manager as all i'm doing is getting a dhcp connection from my modem.

I'll give ConnMan a go for sure because at the moment using no network manager at all is easier than using NM.
