Is there a way to get the LAN No Link message to go away when on WiFi?

It comes up every so often. Haven’t timed it.

Should be related to this tweak:

Thanks. Does that suppress it all the time or just when there is a connected wireless network?

It should suppress all network progress bars, even if connecting or not connected.

This isn’t working. I’ve tried it on multiple machines and haven’t been able to get it to work.

We do have the command in another profile that will disable wifi when the lan is connected and enable when lan is disconnected. Is it possible the two are conflicting?

I’m not sure whether you found a fix, but this as a custom command is working so far for me:

A=$(grep -A2 -n “$nolink” /bin/netcontrol | sed ‘s/[:-]//’ | awk ‘{print $1}’ | tail -n 1)

sed -i “${A}iexit” /bin/netcontrol

Would I just add that after the following command we currently have, which disables/enables wireless when a network cable is plugged in/unplugged?

cat <<“EOF” > /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/99-wlan


if [ “$1” = “eth0” -o “$1” = “eth1” ]; then

case “$2” in


nmcli radio wifi off



nmcli radio wifi on





chmod +x /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/99-wlan

That should work.

If there are multiple profiles that have custom commands, does it aggregate them?

No, I wish it did. It’s aggravating that it doesn’t aggregate them.

I wish that we could have the @boot option for Igel cron jobs.

ugh, that’s probably part of our problem and why we see some inconsistent behavior.

I’ve learned to be careful with custom commands. Usually, it doesn’t matter too much where one goes, or there are multiple places where it will work as intended, but it’s still tricky at times to make sure that one doesn’t overwrite another.

We have the same issue with the network message popups. What’s the best and easy way to get rid of them? We notice that a device get also a message even when there is no network wifi adapter installed?

Do I really have to create different profiles for devices which have a LAN adapter, Wifi or LTE module? I just want to keep it simple.
