Dumb question: on my old Latitude, I have to make sure wireless is turned
on with the little on the right side of the laptop. (When I bring it into
work for conformation conformance, they turn it off, since they plug it


Hello Mark & Fred,

thanks for the reply's.

See the last part of the my mail:

The only difference I can think of, is that I now installed from Centos7.1 minimal install media, and before from Centos7 DVD.
But there I also select minimal install.

And then I sent another mail saying:

and that is indeed the case.

When installing from Centos7 DVD, I end up with wireless managed by NetworkManager
When I install form the more recent 7.1 minimal install media ( not sure of the exact name ) I end up with wireless not managed
by NetworkManager.

Further, for as long as I can remember, I always try to get rid of gnome keyring by renaming:

mv /usr/bin/gnome-keyring /usr/bin/gnome-keyring.bak
mv /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-3 /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-3.bak
mv /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon.bak

but now this is preventing me from connecting to wireless networks.

Greetings, Johan
