Man I'm happy about that. I had quite a few head scratching hours
booting between an online ubuntu and my ubuntustudio strying to fix it.
Later I had to uninstall it completely and install a different network
manager - forgot it's name just now. But it is fine for me for now.

Thanks for the update!
