Acer C720 Will Not Connect to Network

I have an Acer C720 Chromebook that I reformatted and is currently running Fedora 21 64-bit. This is a spare test laptop. I installed Fedora at least a month ago and everything seemed to be working fine, including Wifi connectivity.

Today I booted it up after not using it for almost a month. Now when I try to connect to my Wifi, it says Connecting, but then the connection never completes. I tried removing the Wifi profile and re-adding it, but didn't make a difference.

I also have a PLUGABLE USB 2.0 10/100 Ethernet Adapter and when I plug that in, both indicator lights are solid (so the connection is good) but Linux won't connect on that either.

Current kernel is 3.19.5-200.fc21.x86_64

Can someone please point me in the right direction to troubleshoot this! I don't understand why the Wifi was 100% fine a month ago and now it refuses to connect!

Does not look like a problem of hardware....
open any console and run
"service network restart"
"service NetworkManager restart"
Should be tkernel 4.0.5 by now btw.

Running "service network restart" & "service NetworkManager restart" seems to have done the trick.

Thank you.
