Part of the problem here is understanding the difference between the
network service and the NetworkManager service. The network service
will connect before you log in, while the NetworkManager service
connects after you log in. You normally want to run only one of
these services. I like the network service for servers and desktops,
and the NetworkManager service for laptops. (I need to be able to
connect to my desktop even if nobody is logged in.) You can have
both services running at the same time, but you have to make sure
you have the interfaces that you do not want NetworkManager to
control marked as such.
