When using a wired connction to connect with the Internet, the network manager applet in the system status(tray) disappears. It comes back when the wired connection is disconnected.

This is not a bug. This a new feature introduced in Gnome 3.10.
The new design aims to keep the status area simple & clean.

Wired connection is indicated, only if you get disconnected from the network.

See the design plan
