From couple of days I'm facing this problem? When I turn on my system (I'm using ubuntu 12.04), I dont get various networking option's when I click the networking option (in top right corner of the panel), rather I get as seen in below image,

So, I have to untick Enable Networking (as seen above), and then again tick it to get all those options related to networking. When I do so I get option's as seen in below image,

Thus my question is, how this can be done automaticaly? Insted of mi unticking (i.e. disabeling) and then reticking (i.e. enabling) the Enable Networking option.
