My internet connection is no longer working

same here; after this update and rebooting a few times,i can’t connect to the internet.
I’m using DSL/PPPoE with a username and password provided by the ISP.
i tried restarting the Network Manager service but to no avail.
i’m quit annoyed as i have things to do.
i’d appreciate some urgent help.

Edit: i’m currently using a mobile Hotspot.

Nope that was the first thing i have tried myself… smth changed with this update in some network manager related file… problem is I lack the familiarity to even know what exact files are those and if I can simply replace them with a functional prior version of themselves from my bootable usb stick…

Its amazing how smth like this slipped into the stable build… either way i’m out of ideas and short of taking some more blind shots based on the arch wiki tomorrow ill just call it quits and scrap the distro altogether in favor of smth that doesn’t require me to flip trough douzens of wiki pages just to get a simple working PPoE connection.

Welcome to the club linub seems like you got the same exact issue i got and suspect more folks will be joining use soon enough(probably all that are using a dsl/ppoe)

seems that you’re 2 with same issue now. That seems to be an issue with PPoE-connections. Hopefully some cracks will join the thread and are able to give more knowledge than me.
is there a possibility to downgrade ?

@grraf already tried as mentioned in his first post.

What says ip addr ?

If you are refering to the network manager i already tried that but it doesn’t help hence my assumption that some settings files got modified somewhere and isnt an issue of the networkmanger itself.
But as i stated before i’m no dev and haven’t got a clue what those files are and what was changed to them.

is safe to share?and does it matter now that i’m using a Hotspot+VPN?

is this related?

there’s a command they suggest that might fix it,but not sure i should run it.

It happened to me as well, except I couldn’t access specific domains for whatever reason, i.e. google, and judging from the comments you left, I decided to downgrade the version of Network Manager.

If you don’t have it, install the downgrade package:
sudo pacman -S downgrade

After that, downgrade the networkmanager package:
sudo downgrade networkmanager

Select any version prior to 1.36, I chose 1.34 and after that’s done, just restart the service:
sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager

Hope this helps at least someone, I’m not sure how to go about this if you’ve lost connection to the outside world. :frowning:


ip addr only shows your network connection and not your ip adress.

unfortunately i cleared old packages sometime ago.
can i download NetworkManager 1.4 from a manjaro repository?

Well a downgrade of both networkmanager&libnm to version 1.34 then doing sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager does the trick…

The reason i failed on my first downgrade attempt was due to not also downgrading libnm alongside networkmanager

Anyways thank you folks for yr help i guess its problem solved for now…

If I had to guess, you could try:

pacman -U

Which should install 1.34 for you, but like @grraf wrote, you might also need to downgrade the libnm package as well.

is there a list like that for Manjaro?
shouldn’t a package be ported/ built or compiled for manjaro first?(i have no idea what i’m saying)

Well Arch packages worked for me whenever I needed to get something working on Manjaro, and since it’s Arch-based, things tend to “just work” with Arch packages.

i’ve manually downloaded both
libnm-1.34.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst and networkmanager-1.34.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
can i just put them both in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ and do a downgrade from there with :
downgrade networkmanager
downgrade libnm ?

That’s exactly what i did :point_up:

Thanks @crni , you’ve been of great help.

This is what happened to me.

  • Using Manjaro GNOME on kernel 5.15, WiFi card Intel AC 9260. Other kernel installed (as backup) was 5.10.
  • Installed all the updates, and rebooted.
  • Found that WiFi was no longer working and inaccessible in the settings GUI.
  • Tried plugging in an EDIMAX USB WiFi dongle, didn’t work.
  • With the WiFi dongle still plugged in, rebooted into kernel 5.10 (fallback initramfs)
  • Still no WiFi, so I went to get a coffee. Miraculously when I came back, both the Intel WiFi card and dongle were enabled and I’m back online.
  • Unplugged the WIFi dongle.
  • Installed Kernel 5.16, rebooted. WiFi card was still working.

Staying on Kernel 5.16 for now. Day 2: WiFi is still working normally on Kernel 5.16.

there’s two things i wonder;
-how come we are so few to be affected,how are people connecting to the internet?
-how much time can i have those 2 packages in ignore before things starts to break?

Mostly via a router (or combined modem/router).
The router makes the PPPoE connection to the ISP on the WAN side,
and has a builtin DHCP server that sets up any PC that connects to the LAN side.

Most likely someone at Arch will fix it soon.
More likely if people send bug reports…

that sounds just like what i’m using; a modem/router provided by the ISP.

i did; upstream.

no need to downgrade; it’s fixed with 1.36.2-1.0
