Right click the panel, click 'Add to Panel...' and choose Notification Area.

Try running in a terminal

nm-applet --sm-disable


got to

System->Preferences->Startup Applications ( or Sessions in earlier version)

See if the network manager task is ticked to start at login.

EDIT: It could be Tahakki's suggestion as well, you'll have to see which works.

I tried Tahakki's suggestion first and it worked!!!!
