NOAUTO) due to slowness, which I know can not be solved by me.
When I last started the computer without
- a considerable amount of time was wasted with automated connections to the unwanted open network,
wlan0automatically going down very soon after automatically coming up, then again down soon after up, and so on
- eventually, login became possible but I could not use the Internet.
The third is difficult to read but essentially, the system fell back to reusing a previously leased address (words to that effect) and the Internet was unusable.
