For some reason, my new Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop machine always starts disconnected from the network. I'm quite sure I did something to the Network Manager when putting it on a static IP address.
After a reboot, I go into the Network control panel and turn it on, and everything is okay. Same situation if I restart the Network-manager service.
Looking for suggestions on where to check for the setting.
- I checked /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and
- I checked /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state and
I'm running this as a VM so there's no WiFi or anything; networking comes back fine as soon as I connect via the control panel.
