A couple years ago, I was setting my computer up as a home router and had to disable NetworkMamager's WiFi functionality to make DNSMasq work. My normal house has been flooded with sewage, however, so I need to use WiFi as a client again. How do I undo this disabling? I have no idea how I did it, and everything I see about it online is for Ubuntu only.

Why is it that I always seem to figure out the answer right after giving up on doing it myself and asking others, despite figuring it out before others answer?

I poked into nmcli, and apparently I used :

Code:
nmcli r wifi off


So, to fix this, I simply had to issue:

Code:
nmcli r wifi on


It appears that this topic is now solved, by me, mere minutes after posting it thinking I wouldn't get the answer any time soon :/ .

Since we don't delete threads, eventually your topic will end up in search engine indexes, and hopefully some future user will stumble upon it and benefit from your posting.
