Any hints? The common network problem in Ubuntu 12.04 with hang up within a couple of minutes.

With sudo I can restart the network-manager but it doesn't have effect to the connection.

Sorry for pasting without sudo. But I have already done so. No effect with sudo as well. The connecting only reappears after rebooting the whole system. Log attached above. –  brubaker Jun 27 '12 at 11:07

You need root level permission to execute this command.

Try

sudo service network-manager restart

And then type your password when requested.

It was happening to me even when using sudo :( Had to restart to make it work. –  Diego Jancic Oct 10 '12 at 2:52
