Here's my next issue with Debian network connections, which is related to my topic here,
On the computer I'm on now, the network connection icon in top right corner says network connections are disabled, which it is. On another computer with Debian installed, I don't even have that icon, but have the icon that I think wicd put there!
I have uninstalled wicd on both computers and set my IP up statically, after learning how from that link above.
On this computer, I can't get rid of the icon in top right corner where as I didn't even try to remove it on other computer, but it's gone! The other computer does still have the icon from wicd and shows the IP I'm connected to. The icon on this computer only says networking disabled.
Anybody have any idea what the heck I did? Sound confusing? Does to me! Seeing as how I don't need them, might as well get them out of my sight and maybe I'll leave this stuff alone!
This isn't really a big issue, so doesn't really matter if I can "fix" it, but curious as to what I might've done without even trying to do anything!

# Use the following command to disable NetworkManager on boot
# if you are using systemd as init.
$ sudo systemctl disable NetworkManager.service
# Use the follow command to disable NetworkManager on boot
# if you are using sysvinit as init.
$ sudo rcconf --off network-manager
Another dumb question!
How do I know which of those I'm using?
At the moment SysVInit is the default in Debian, so if you haven't explicitly switched to systemd, use the latter command. (You may need to install the rcconf package first.)
On a side note, systemd has many advantages over SysVInit, and I recommend that you give it a try. It is already the default in many tier-1 Linux distributions (notably Fedora, Arch, and SUSE), and will likely become the default in Debian in a future release (pending the outcome of the current review by the Technical Committee). You can make systemd init in Debian Wheezy by issuing the following commands:
$ sudo apt-get install systemd $ sudo sed -ri 's|(GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT.*=.*)(")(.+)(")|\1\2\3 init=/lib/systemd/systemd\4|' /etc/default/grub $ sudo update-grub $ sudo rebootGo to the full post
