I have been getting the following error message every 10 seconds in /var/log/messages:
dbus-daemon: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type=“method_call”, sender=":1.7" (uid=0 pid=3119 comm="/usr/sbin/NetworkManager “) interface=“org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.KillSwitch” member=“GetPower” error name=”(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination=“org.freedesktop.Hal” (uid=0 pid=5331 comm="/usr/sbin/hald --daemon=yes "))
It only appears in the laptop, not in my desktop in the same LAN.
Is this an indication of a real problem?
Any ideas on how to stop the flood?
It turns out my hardware was faulty (probably the “network KillSwitch”, as the error message indicates) and now my network on that laptop is completely gone. :’(

By reading your first post, the error you are getting looks to me a dbus
and/or networkmanager problem, but not a hardware one.
I never use “networkmanager” but “ifup” to configure my network cards, so I
cannot tell you what to check or to do in this case but maybe someone can
give you any hint.
Review the log of networkmanager (/var/log/NetwokManager) and (if using a
wifi adaptor) take a look into this page:
