That's a good idea.

Yes, as far as I understand, I should have noticed the problem otherwise
yesterday, when I ran two different instances of Lubuntu 14.04, one with
the non-pae kernel, one 64-bit system.

I must admit, that I am not very good at tweaking networks. I'll try

sudo dhclient ethX

where X would be 0 or 1 ...

I have a bad experience from wicd in the pre-alpha versions of ToriOS.
Maybe because I don't understand it, but I could never make it work
properly, while Network manager 'always works' after my tweaks according
to this link

Yes, but not very easy to find. See this link

No, I don't think so, but I did not really try. I focused on wired
internet, which 'should' work out of the box.

Try it and report your result :-)
