    Question Connecting to the internet without nm-applet?

    I recently changed my window manager from metacity to fluxbox. I forgot to add nm-applet to my ~/.fluxbox/startup file, and I can confirm that it is not running, but somehow I'm connected to the internet.

    What is going on there? Thanks! (12.04)

    The nm-applet is only a front end - the network-manager service is probably still running behind the scenes and will read and setup your default connection from /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/

    You can check with

    Code:
    service network-manager status
    or use the command line nm-tool to see device / connection details

    Either that or you have a connection defined using the older networking service (via /etc/network/interfaces)
