The network manager wifi problem is so annoying; it keeps me away from using Manjaro although I would certainly use and support this os.
I gave Manjaro a second chance, but I am about to quit now, because I do not want to waste my time anymore.
Here is my claim:
I installed the current release “manjaro-xfce-17.1.10-stable-x86_64.iso”.
As I was warned before, I checked the wifi connection before installation whilst running the live usb. It DID work fine !
However, after installing wifi was gone again, disabled and never recovered. Same ol’ story…
As there was a software update DURING the installation process - which I could not control - it might be a version problem of the network manager.
On the other hand, all the official answers I read about this problem say “version issue”, “downgrade” or “upgrade”. I am just sick of these statements.
C’mon guys, get this problem fixed eventually unless you do not really want to take off with your os.
