Wifi not connecting on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 2 [FIXED]


After that partial upgrade and the annoying Docky issue finally fixed, I thought I was safe, but another annoying issue appeared,  and this time hitting closer to home!

One of the issues that occurred after the partial upgrade is that the wifi breaks after putting the computer to sleep. Bluetooth worked fine but the wifi won't connect!
After a failed connection this message would appear:

connection activation failed

(4) did not receive a reply. Possible causese include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply time out expired
or the network connection was broken.
I tried fixing the issue, switching of the WI-Fi did not work.
Looking on-line I found that the most suitable solution was to download Wicd. A graphical network manager that asked for the network's name and password. And started the connection process until I had connection!
So there you have it! Install Wcid to fix the WI-Fi breaking issue on Ubuntu 14.04
