    'Network Connections' icon my task bar missing

    I seem to have lost the internet connection icon on my task bar after I had remove it from the task bar. I think it's call 'Network Connections' icon.
    I can't find from the 'Add to Panel' when I right click on my task bar.
    Where else can I find this 'Network Connections' icon to be placed on my task bar?

    Sounds like you removed the "Notification Area"-applet from the panel. Because network manager doesn't have its own applet but instead places it's icon inside the Notification Area.
