I tried to access a wireless device on my kubuntu system and I have no access network to the network. I gave up on wireless and went back to my wired connection.

How do I add a device to /etc/network/interfaces so that /etc/init.d/networking start will restart my network interfaces?

Many thanks,

    What is it you're trying to accomplish. As it stands, I'm not sure why you'd want to attempt this. – Colyn1337 Aug 20 '13 at 15:00

You shouldn't need to edit that file. Just use NetworkManager, in Kubuntu (KDE) you can access it from the drop-down menu next to the clock.
