If NM is trying to connect, it must think there's a link on the wired
card.  Can you do the following and post the results to this list?

- Without the cable plugged in, right after booting up, do:
cat /sys/class/net/eth0/carrier

if eth0 is not your wired network card, replace the 'eth0' with the
device name of your wired network card.  If that number is '1' and you
have  no cable plugged in, then the kernel driver is reporting that it
has a link, and the kernel driver for your card needs to be fixed.
