    I know why you don't want to start up the net at boot but I've installed BT on my hard and managed to make for daily use so when i want to use bt for pentesting I'll simple stop all net processes.

    I've added NM to start at boot with this code:

    Code:
    update-rc.d NetworkManager defaults
    By the way BT is my favorite Linux distribution from now

    Greetings* well i just tryed out those less commands and now im pretty annoyed of the update-rc.d NetworkManager defaults ^^ how can i undo this action?
    anyhow wicd aint really working for me (it scans and shows AP's around but i tryed to connect to my router and it never got connected so i changed from WPA TKIP PSK to WEP SKA to WEP OPN and even hex/passphrases i checked a few times)
    im bored of wicd so i want to use the good old handwork to get connected to any AP.
    hope that theres something like an undo command for the "update-rc.d NetworkManager defaults" cmd-line

    Default thx a lot!

    well for me it was the "sudo update-rc.d wicd remove" cmd before starting X that worked pretty fine. funny as i saw then another possibility to get wicd running without typing the commandlines to start networking ^^
    check the startmenu go to 'Services/NETWORK/Start NETWORK' theres also a stop option ^^ for those who are lazy in typing all those cmd's down i guess this will be a fast handling at all. (don't forget to start wicd after)
    working fine for the pre final release of bt4!
