Hi, we encountered a problem with the integrated wwan on a Dell LAtitude 5510 with Igel OS 11.04.240. If wwan is enabled, i think every connections runs over wwan, even if the LAN cable is connected. I can see it, because for external connections our Citrix Gateway needs a 2 Factor Authetification.
Now i tried to build some custom applications to Activate and Deactivate WWAN , but have no luck with the command nmcli radio wwan off. It looks likge IGEL OS is not using this command to DE-/Active WWAN. Does anybody have some hints for us?
Hi, did you issued the command in a Terminal as root first? Something like these:
nmcli r wwan on && systemctl restart network-manager
Hi Sebastian, thanks for your reply. I tried it, but it doesn’t work. In the terminal the status shows WWAN enabled, but there is no symbol in the taskbar. When i activate it trough the gui it works as aspected.
Can you provide a few screenshots?
If I understand what you want, you want to disable WiFi whenever an Ethernet cable is connected?
i found a solution. I have to use the command nmcli device disconnect cdc-wdm0 to deactivate the WWAN Connection. After a restart the connection is automatically enabled, so i put the command also in the custom commands. It looks good till now.
