I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04 on an Asus eeepc netbook.
Everything was working fine until randomly I was unable to connect to my wireless, or any wireless for that matter. When I tried to, I would get the following message:
'Failed to add/activate connection' and on the next line: '(32) Insufficient privileges'.
I plugged in my Ethernet cable, and it was able to connect to a wired connection. However, after a week, the wired connection also stopped working. When I look at available networks, the top entry 'Ethernet Network' is greyed out even though the cable is connected. Now Inman unable to connect to any network.
I currently use either xfce or xubuntu as my desktop environment.
Any questions or ideas, please let me know. Thanks!
