    1. Edit /etc/network/interfaces:

      sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    1.1 If you are typing this from LXTerminal while logged in to the GUI then:

    gksudo leafpad /etc/network/interfaces

    1. Remove whatever written there and just keep this:
      auto lo
      iface lo inet loopback
    It is very good idea to keep a backup copy of "interfaces" file just in case so please make sure to save a "interfaces.bak" file before you do anything

    1. Ctrl + O if you are using nano and Ctrl + S (File > Save) if you are using leafpad.

    2. Ctrl + X if you are using nano and Ctrl + Q (File > Quit) if you are using leafpad.

    3. Reboot.

    4. Done.

    If you are curious, the /etc/network/interfaces contains network adapters that the system thinks are required for the system to function. Unfortunately this means that NetworkManager does not manage them until upstart brings them up.
