The only problem is that the network does not connect automatically. I have to click the network icon and select the wired network manually.
If you stop Network Manager what do you use to make the initial connection?

Me too, and I'm running Mint on a regular PC. This little nuisance appears to be a feature that Bianca inherits from Ubuntu Edgy, and it's also passed along to Feisty. It arrived with Network Manager.
I wonder if Ubuntu has implemented it as a security measure, to prevent us Linux newbies from having an open Internet connection by default at boot-up?

Disabling network manager in your gnome session will not work as that is just the 'notification area' for the network-manager service. To disable network-manager, either uninstall it (which will break ubuntu-desktop package) or do this:
Stop network manager...
sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/26NetworkManagerDispatcher stop
sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager stop
Create two files with only the word 'exit' in them. These files are:
