Since I upgraded my HP Proliant Server from Ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04, I am unable to:
- ping google.com
- ping 188.8.131.52
- browse the internet with Firefox
- git fetch origin
- cap deploy from a remote machine
I can however see my Rails application running on this server when I access it via its ip address within our corporate network.
I see the Networking icon in the GUI but "Wired Network" is greyed out.
Here is some other relevant info, based on the numerous similar but non-resolving threads I've browsed here at AU:

**Updated to show NetworkManager.conf and evidence that the resolv.conf symlink is working for me
dean@dgwjasonfried:~$ cat /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf [main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile dns=dnsmasq [ifupdown] managed=true dean@dgwjasonfried:~$ ls -l /etc/resolv.conf lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Mar 18 09:33 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf
**Updated to show latest resolv.conf after I deleted original in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d and cleared out the copy of original that was sitting in tail, then rebooted:
dean@dgwjasonfried:/etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d$ cat /etc/resolv.conf # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8) # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN nameserver 127.0.0.1 search dgw.ame.molex.com
Note that the nameserver entries listed in an earlier resolv.conf version above are now gone. Also note that whereas I was briefly able to get ping google.com to resolve the ip address for google.com (but still not receive any packets back) I'm now back to my original situation where I get 'unknown host google.com'.

I'd be grateful for any help you could supply or suggestions you might have.
