After updating my network manager.. my edit connections is greyed all my saved settings have vanished after going through google i check my /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf:
then i checked the system-connections folder:
sid5291@sid:/etc/NetworkManager$ cat NetworkManager.conf
This is what struck me as odd .. Those are the names of the wireless connections i connect to at home or at work, and the "adhoc" network is a network which i created many times maybe as many times as it has been repeated here.It seems to be creating duplicate profiles for a connection every time i connect to it.
sid5291@sid:/etc/NetworkManager$ ls system-connections/
