Yes, it works just fine as long as I do it with a wired connection. It
worked fine up until the very minute that I removed network manager. The
machine three feet to my right works just fine over wifi, however, my
machine is non longer working with the wifi access point.

That "Temporary failure in name resolution" error is something new. I
just did a dist-upgrade in case the bug (if that is what this is) I was
experiencing was fixed.
