sure I never let this go through, but this solve definitively the problem


How does it solve the problem if an employer doesn't want to give
employees root access, but expects them you be able to use WiFi?

Hmm. I use WiFi in three offices, hotels, home, and wherever. On KDE I
set it up via network manager. I am never root for that. Same with wired
connections. I think the problem is that network manager seems to have
gone through a bad stretch where it could, in some updates, stop
working. That, for wifi on openSUSE, is the issue. I do not know if the
gnome equivalent has had such a seemingly turbulent recent history.

Yours sincerely,
