Comment 18 for bug 82927

I have a similar problem with a forcedeth ethernet card.

* If i have set my static IP-adresses with network-admin nm-applet keeps on saying that i have no network connection.

* If i then empty the interfaces file in /etc nm-applet keeps looking for a network connection and after a while it says that i have one, it finds my card but i don't have a connection due to that
i need to configure the IP-adresses statictly.

This feels like hight priority bug, for me its not that hard to just remove network-manager but for new ubuntu people its a showstopper to not have internet connection. Okay yes there is a connection but every program that supports network-manager i need to switch off the "Work offline" thingy to get going and thats not easy for new people eather.
