    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.

    I am using WICD right now and it seems to work fine but i would really like to figure out what is wrong with my Network Manager

    Im running Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit and i think my Network Manager is

    Also im very new to ubuntu so consider me a n00b ..

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you !

    here is the image showing the edit connections window

    And this is the error i get when i try to add a wireless or wired connection

    Sorry for the long post but i just wanted to make sure i cover all my bases ..
    Just let me know if there is anyother information that i can provide
