Sometimes (but not all the time, oddly enough), when I log into my system, Networking will be disabled by default. Is this a common issue, or is there some workaround I missed to set 'On' as the PERMANENT default (!?).

When you say disabled do you mean not connected or something more than that? – Oli Aug 9 '10 at 13:09
I mean actually disabled. Like, I have to right-click on the nm-applet and click "enable networking." – Andy Sep 17 '10 at 15:36

This question looks very similar. Ressu's accepted answer runs something like this:

Right-click the Network Manager applet and choose Edit Connections. Edit the connection you want to be used on login and check the "Connect automatically" and "Available to all users" checkboxes.
