I got the network problem again and I solved it using info on this website

For KDE (Kubuntu)
Open up a Terminal and execute the following commands:

First, we download the latest NetworkManager, in case we need to reinstall if WICD doesn't works:

sudo apt-get install -d --reinstall network-manager plasma-widget-networkmanagement

Then we install WICD:
sudo apt-get install wicd-kde

And only then do we uninstall NetworkManager:

sudo apt-get remove --purge plasma-widget-networkmanagement network-manager

There is plasma-nm widget.
Its enabled as default in 4.0 rc kde iso.
Nothing is easy as it looks.
