I believe that the answer has been found for this problem. See this The solution, at least it works on my computers, both wired and wireless, is to do the following:

Install the dhcp package
Code: Select all
$ sudo spi -i dhcp

Edit the NeworkManagers dhcp client configuration file, /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/00-dhcp-client.conf, commenting the "dhcp=dhcpcd" line an un-commenting the "dhcp=dhclient" line. It should look like this after editing :
Code: Select all
# Choose a DHCP client below.  Upstream recommends dhclient, but results may vary.
# dhcpcd is the DHCP client usually used by Slackware:
# dhclient is the ISC reference DHCP client, part of the dhcp package:
# This is a simple DHCP client that is built into NetworkManager:
# dhcp=internal

Then restart networkmanager
Code: Select all
sudo service restart networkmanager

have not been around for a while... 8-)

I fixed it today as you propose.

I switched to a different router in the meantime and had no issues since.
But reading through the thread you linked to, I thought it was good to change.
I never had a WRT router here. Hardware is supplied by Unitymedia, so cable modem.
