Recently I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 and I have a problem with network-manager because the icon in top bar disappeared and I don't know how to get it back.

I tried to edit NetworkManager.conf and set true in managed but nothing happened.

How do I get the network manager icon in the top panel back?

If you're using Unity, try to log off and choose Ubuntu Classic.

After that, see if the network manager is on the top bar. If it's not, then you can do this :

  • Right click on the top Bar, and choose Add to Panel
  • Just double click on Indicator Applet or Indicator Applet Complete
