Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

Restarted pc this morning - it has an ethernet connection to router. Checked pc when I came
back from work, and it had been running all day with no network connection.

Tried to get networking going by disabling and re-enabling networking from gui, but this
did not work, so I had to open a terminal and perform the following operations:

root@mathieg2-quad:/etc/init.d# /etc/init.d/network-manager stop
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service network-manager stop

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) utility, e.g. stop network-manager
network-manager stop/waiting
root@mathieg2-quad:/etc/init.d# /etc/init.d/network-manager start
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service network-manager start

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g. start network-manager
network-manager start/running, process 6287

Hopefully bug report includes messages from boot (/var/log/messages).
Otherwise I can send this seperately
