Problem solved

I ran
sudo nautilus
Navigated to /usr/sbin
right clicked networkmanager
allowed to be ran as executable

sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart

all is well :P

I found the solution by putting echos on /etc/init.d/NetworkManager until i found its exit point.

apparently the 'test -x' was saying the package failed testing, so I removed it and it executed.
while restarting the network manager i got a permission denied from the script.
I changed the above metioned and put the test -x back in and it runs fine now :P
