Try adding notification area to your panel. The network manager, contrary to what it looks like, lives in the notification area, and not on the panel. Right click somewhere on the panel, select '+Add to Panel' and search for notification in the search bar.

Have you tried pressing ALT + F2 then typing in "nm-applet" and pressing OK?
