I recently updated ubuntu to 12.04 and i have 2 problems:

1.) 'waiting for network configuration' shows each time when starting computer

2.) I always have to type in terminal 'sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager start' in order to get wireless connection working. How to configure to start it automatically with startup?

Please help me to solve these 2 problems.

I solved second problem in the way mentioned below.

In terminal:

gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local

Above the exit 0 line add:

/etc/init.d/network-manager start

Saved the new file and close gedit, reboot to test.
