    not able to connect to internet as non root user.

    Hi, I just installed ubuntu 10.04, i'm not able to connect to
    internet as a non root user. I can ping google.com if use sudo.
    if i login as root i can connect to the internet. i even enabled the option of "connect to wireless and ethernet network" for the user in adminisration > users settings. how can i fix this.

    Is the interface set for "Available to all users" in Network Manager?
