Intrepid and networks

Network Manager, upon restart, wouldn't allow me to go out of the gateway.

My DNS was missing. I could ping internally but not web browse...

Network Manager wouldn't let me edit anything, gave a read-only error 
(c.82, I think was the number?)

I think this was a bug during the beta phase, and someone said they 
altered their interfaces file to just have auto eth0 and restarted and 
then DHCP worked for them.

I did this, and unfortunately it wiped my static configuration, but at 
least I can get online again.

I upgraded a different system yesterday and the video broke (Intel bug, 
someone suggested). I upgraded this, my primary workstation, and video 
worked great on my nVidia card, but network manager is busted.


I'm really hoping updates will be coming soon!
