After reading through several threads on here about network connection issues, and trying to solve it on my own, to no avail, I thought I'd post the problem here.

I have an HP Chromebook 14 running Ubuntu 12.04. A little over a week ago, shortly after installing Ubuntu 12.04 (Unity Desktop), my internet connection began going out, always after rebooting. Sometimes I can connect, but after rebooting I have no idea whether I'll have any connection when I try to connect again.

After some research, I decided to uninstall network manager and install WICD. The inconsistency of internet connection continues. I should add that I know its not the wireless router because all my other devices connect just fine.

Does anyone have any suggestions given what I've already tried?

Have you tried configuring the network in /etc/network/interfaces directly ? –  Lawrence Apr 24 '14 at 4:42
I have not. I'm a little new to the OS. How would I configure it in the terminal? –  DQC Apr 24 '14 at 5:03
