I am on 12.04, fresh install. When I boot, the boot screen says Connecting to network, later it is changed to something like Did not connect, trying for another 60s.
However, the network does not connect at the boot. But I can then log in without a network connection, and if I start a network manager service manually from the terminal with
sudo service network-manager start, the network is connected without any problems.
Please, does anybody know where the problem could be? I don't want to wait more than two minutes every computer restart.
I am new to Ubuntu (and also to upstart) so I am a bit lost. There is no
/var/log/messages, in dmesg I found this record, though it may not be related:
init: network-interface (eth1) pre-start process (492) terminated with status 1 init: network-interface (eth1) post-stop process (548) terminated with status 1
