With the command "route" in a terminal you can see if there are two
default routes trough two different interfaces. I have had this happen
and in my case the solution was in the file /etc/network/interfaces. In
that file I had "auto eth0" and "auto ath0" which made both interfaces
come up even when there was no connection. (eth0 was also hardcoded in
that file with a static IP). By commenting these lines I prevented the
connections to come up automatically and then choose the connection I
wanted through NetworkManager.
This was the solution that worked for me, hope it helps you.
