What does systemctl status NetworkManager say?
Code: [Select]
$ systemctl status NetworkManager
● NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Sat 2015-05-16 19:34:12 UTC; 20min ago

... while connected to wired LAN
when unconnected the same but without the last line.

So you are saying that you use the same iso on both laptops still you get different behaviour ? And I thought computers were deterministic ^^.
Just kidding so then it has to be something else, so when the software is the same, the problem has to be hardware specific. What network card do you have on the laptop that doesn't work (Just post the output of lspci).

Thank you for you patience, DevCode! :)

Even more than that the same hardware with what I thougth would be the same software behaves differently  :o
The only thing I can think of right now is that at one point I changed some tiny thing in one of the init files  - but I was not able to find any difference there, yet...
The problem child's name:
Code: [Select]
Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

So i looked up your network card and there were some other people which had the same issues as you.
The driver is if i am correct ath9k for your device you can check it via lsmod.
So try to unload it via
Code: [Select]
rmmod ath9k and then
Code: [Select]
modprobe ath9k nohwcrypt=1but the person states that the network card is named differently after that, so you have to change your config to match the new name of the device.
If that fixes your problem, you can make this change permanent.

So is the password kept by the keyring? Do you have a keyring installed? 


The way I see it, we now know the keyring is running, but it seems something is preventing it from holding the password or otherwise providing the needed function. The next questions are what and why.

SUCCESS!! Absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much, DevCode!
And thank you too, Ponder, for staying with me! :)
Could you point me to that original post, please? I still need to find out how to make this change permanent!

It is still a mystery to me how the problem only surfaces with one particular setup and not with the other, also network drivers are still a bit of a riddle to me...
anyway :)
Cheers and good night!

If that fixes your problem, you can make this change permanent.

So, at some point the driver was updated to also handle an Atheros version with hardware encryption. For some reason, the new iso that Oberon spun prevented the driver from automatically detecting that the wireless card did not have hardware encryption and it had to be forced with the nohwcrypt=1 option.

Ain't computers fun?  :P ;D
