There has recently been quite a bit of instability in NetworkManager.
I don't know if this was at the same time as the Beta, or afterwards. Anyway,
updating to the latest version should help.

I'd say use network-manager if possible - it's the preffered Ubuntu way.

You are going to have to upgrade everything, yes. That isn't small, but it's
kind of what you have to do when you live on the edge.

(That, or downgrade to Jaunty)
